9/11: Never Forget How U.S. Intelligence Failed You
h/t Instapundit
[AmericanGreatness] The September 11, 2001 attacks were the result of an unmitigated intelligence failure. No, 9/11 was not an "inside job," as many conspiracy theorists believe. Osama bin Laden and his al-Qaeda network were responsible. But, the 9/11 plot did not happen in a vacuum.

In reality, America’s elephantine national security state had known of bin Laden and his network years before the horrific events of 9/11. Some of the most powerful people in the national security state routinely downplayed and ignored the threat al-Qaeda posed to the United States before 19 hijackers murdered 2,911 people in New York, Washington, and Pennsylvania.

#1 On December 14, 2004, President George W. Bush awarded Tenet the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Rewarding failure is not going to move you to excellence. Success is an evil word in way too many American institutions.

#5 Gorelick and her Chinese Wall is directly culpable for the failure to detect the flight school clues that would have stopped it like the BoJinka plot. Lawyering and ass covering infest our national security policy and systems. Yet another gift of the Clinton era never examined adequately in the light of day.

#6 Intelligence agencies, militaries, politicians, law... they're ultimately comprised of people. It is a complacently liberal society that failed you. The bureaucrats came later, out of you.

Who died ? People at work. Taxpayers, service personnel, clerks, real * people. Who didn't ? Wards of the state, professional emoters, celebrities and useless motherfuckers that voted for and fielded muslims in their constituencies.


Instead of a nationwide quarantine on muslims like you did with japos after pearl harbor, assholes in the State Dept went on to employ more muslims, saying they needed 'culture translators' and 'advisors about islam' to combat the 'extremists'. As if no one had learned anything about islam yet. They had practically created the jihadi. I won't bring that up, Carter and the USSR bigfoot... No.

And then America went on to elect a nig..wakandan with Hussein in his name. Just because he was a dandy fop and a hit with the rebels, the dregs of real * society. And the rest of America went on, went to their progressive churches, their tupperware parties, worried about mortgages and the kardashians. While Langley and the puzzle box proceeded to do whatever the fuck they think they're doing in Afghanistan. because Bin Laden may've taken a few shits in them hills ? The schweinhund was in Pakistain all along ! Why not declare war on them ? No, they had to be paid billions to what ? Oh ! Find and arrest terrorists.

* real people, real society = law abiding folks that coexist without hassle.

I say it was not the alphabeteers that failed, but a society that slowly compromised with being preyed upon, by politicians protecting predators. The wakandans - because oh your grandpaws once whipped them into a semblance of urbanity. The muslims - who we must respect the sensitivities of, halaal burgers and burkinis and CAIRs because really we are afraid of facing butchers with federal protectors. Now, we are beset by everything from dyke militias with pepper spray to cartels operating in suburbs a cop dares not enter.

It's easy to blame elected and appointed officials for being useless, but you had the Ist and IInd amendment rights. Every gun-owning American should have declared war on the Abduls and the Akbars right then, until the state had to call for a truce and they huddled shivering in camps. This is something even people as far as China could not believe - that no one even tried, save for the motley placard holders and unhinged sorts who made the further case for protection of muslims from backlash. There was no decisive response to islamics from the most armed citizenry on earth. I still haven't.

Maybe this constant drumming of humanist bullshit ideals in schools, the faux faith of systematizing everything from guilt to angst, psycho babble and group hugs and sitting in a circle talking about shit to forget it, enabled society to overcome and compromise with the murder of their own. I'm not saying religion would have been better, turn the cheek an' all that will see you in chains in fact. I'm frustrated with the inaction. And I'm not even American ! But when I see the most powerful nation on earth, with the most self-governing of societies, armed to the teeth, acquiesce to a nanny state that allows 'islamic patrols' in the same city. A CAIR on capitol hill even after a thing like 9/11, I fear for the whole world. I'll admit my fear. I thank Gawd my hatred burns hotter than fear. I believe many American people feel the same way. More.

There is going to be a critical point some day. There has to be a learned, coordinated action against traitors and infiltrators by citizens, by serving personnel, counter-partisans working within the govt. The left are clearly traitors, and in the minority. If the left can raise such a well coordinated and protected antifa, why can't the Right ? Look at how HK stood up to the Han giant recently, ouster of dictators and forced resignations of islamist and symp politicians worldwide. Islamists have to be shown they have no say or political power in our societies. They have to be dis-empowered.

End of Rant. Sorry fro being a prick. Shit, I probably shouldn't drink and type.

#7 Should have done everything possible to side-line the Wahhabi as the voice of Sunni Islam.

Should have left Afghanistan in rubble and destroyed the opium crops entirely and then moved on instead of trying to nation build a spot that has never had a proper nation before.

After Afghanistan we should have had a long existential talk with the Saudi's.

#11 As they say, in vino veritas. Of course, if you feel the same way when you sober up ..,

#12 I have a condition. I can't feel guilt. ☺

No of course, I feel the same way. It's just not nice to preach gloom and doom to friends all the time.

I speak from an advantage right now of course, things have been contained where I am, but this deluge is already crashing on my shores, in more subtil forms. The only reason the islamists have left an easy target like India alone for so long, is because the west made themselves an easier target.

Thank you, Dron.
