An untold story of 9/11

Former federal terrorism investigators say a piece of luggage hastily checked in at the Portland, Maine, airport by a World Trade Center hijacker on the morning of Sept. 11 provided the Rosetta stone enabling FBI agents to swiftly unravel the mystery of who carried out the suicide attacks and what motivated them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, the official story is that a terrorist intent on killing himself on his flight bothered to pack a suitcase, and even though he never expected to unpack it and expected it to be incinerated, instead of just throwing some clothes into that suitcase he took the time to load up that suitcase with all kinds of incriminating evidence pointing the finger of blame to Middle East Arab Muslims (i.e. Israel's enemies).
Then, miracle of miracles, this suitcase, which should have vaporized with the rest of the airplane, together with its load of incriminating evidence "somehow" was left OFF the plane, ready to be found by investigators!
And if you believe that one, I have a variable rate mortgage to sell you!

The livin' is easy

Summer nights! The fragrant dark descends, the night creatures chitter
and chirrup, and we linger on the porch, a little wine in the glass,
children coming and going, and we inhale the sweetness of life. In
Pasadena, people are lined up outside a bank, hoping to get their money
out before it goes belly-up, and Mr. McCain's friend Mr. Gramm says we
are a nation of whiners complaining about a recession that is only
mental, but we are engulfed in summer and don't notice. We're sitting
on the porch, inhaling the breeze from the trees, and we are American
optimists.
