It turns out that the French have been working with Al Qaeda all along, or at least enabling them:
A French intelligence service learned as early as January 2001 that al-Qaida was working on a plot to hijack U.S. airliners, and it passed the information on to the CIA, a news report said Monday.
Of course the French SAY they passed the information on to the CIA. Being unadulterated liars and miscreants, it’s in their best interest to obfuscate this issue. But the underlying point is, the French knew about terror plots 9 months before they happened, yet did nothing to stop them. In my mind, that makes the French government complicit in 9/11. They may or may not have actively worked on the planning with AQ, but the fact that they allowed the attacks to go foreword at all renders them nearly as awful as those 19 hijackers.
If you ask me, Afghanistan needed to get taken out. But when we get a minute, I can think of a certain country in Europe that needs to experience the shock and awe of the consequences of its ingratitude to America, its liberator in more wars than I’d care to count.
Update (by Psycheout): Here’s another take: France Warned Clinton CIA of Al Qaeda Hijack Threat. Hmmm. No wonder we haven’t heard about this until now.
