A tribute to Condoleeza Rice and George W. Bush who, despite voluminious evidence to the contrary, said, "I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon, that they would try to use an airplane as a missile," adding that "even in retrospect" there was "nothing" to suggest that" and "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees," respectively.

Contradictory News: When two reports are incompatible 

After a long absence, OBL returns with yet another conveniently timed tape. A news report says that OBL goes to great lengths to conceal his location by using multiple couriers to deliver his tapes to Al Jazzera, a process that takes nearly a month. In fact, the news reports suggest the tape was made in Nov-Dec with a date stamp in early December which supports this premise.

Then, in subsequent news reports, the questioned is raised about "Why now?" since OBL has been absent from the scene for so long. One promoted theory, it's in response to the attack in Pakistan last week which was an attempt to kill the OBL's number 2 man.

Okay, the damn thing was supposedly made over a month ago and it takes several weeks just to be delivered, but its supposed to be in response to last week's attacks. Just asking...
