|I was speaking to two American friends yesterday and asked the simple question, "did the US have advance knowledge of the attack?", and neither could answer. They both admitted that the issue was so convoluted and mired in conspiracy theories that the truth may never be known.
We are now getting closer and closer to being a decade after the fact.... is the answer any clearer?
My two cents, it really looks like a Pearl Harbor situation: there was knowledge of how and where but not when (actually, PH they knew when but not how or where). All pieces of the jigsaw puzzle that no one could put together in time. Bush was very much like Short and Kimmel whose generally lakadaisical approach filtered down through the ranks.... but there was no malice or conspiracy involved because there was no complete advance knowledge.
What are your opinions?
