Mansoor Ijaz on 9/11 Commission This is obscene. The fucking Democrats on the 9/11 Commission keep trying to pin all the blame on Bush and this is what went on under Clinton. Sudan offered Osama to us several times and we didn't want him, and even worse, attacked Sudan!

Khartoum, August 8, 1998. A day after the U.S. embassies were bombed, two of the key suspected planners, Sayyid Nazir Abbass and Sayyid Iskandar Sayyid Suliman, landed in Khartoum with fake Pakistani passports. Sudanese intelligence immediately got in touch with the FBI, put the suspects — who had taken up residence in an apartment opposite the U.S. embassy in Khartoum — under surveillance and asked FBI officials for further instructions. The Sudanese intelligence chief even sent a handwritten note to the FBI director asking for guidance. The U.S. responded on August 20, 1998 — with a cruise-missile attack against the al-Shifa pharmaceutical plant that the Clinton administration incorrectly assessed was producing VX nerve gas precursors. The two suspects fled to Pakistan.

Politicizing American intelligence had reached its zenith in the Sudan case. Richard Clarke said in a January 23, 1999, interview with the Washington Post that intelligence existed to link bin Laden to al-Shifa's owners, Iraqi nerve gas producing agents and the National Islamic Front, Sudan's ruling junta. Last month, in a 60 Minutes interview, Clarke said, "...there's absolutely no evidence that Iraq was supporting al Qaeda. Ever." It is precisely such contradictions that are intolerable in the search for truth on how 9/11 could have occurred.
