Does Senator Bob Graham have the goods on the Bushies and 9/11?
The mystery of 9/11 only gets murkier as time goes on. How did a rag-tag group of 19 (plus one) conspirators manage to hijack three airliners and crash them into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon – without so much as a small blip showing on law enforcement's radar screen? We may never know the answer to that troubling question, but some people do know – and Senator Bob Graham may well be one of them.
In an interview with PBS, as we noted last year, Graham declared that certain intelligence agencies were involved and/or had foreknowledge of the terrorist attacks. Now we have the Congressional Quarterly's Craig Crawford telling the ABC Radio team of John Batchelor and Paul Alexander:
"I think Bob Graham has a smoking pistol on the Bush administration."
But there's just one hitch, as Crawford explains:
"The problem is that what [Graham] knows – and he knows some very damaging stuff about the Bush administration's failures before 9/11 to prevent 9/11 – he can't talk about because it's classified."
According to Crawford, who is covering the Florida Democrat's White House bid, Graham is looking for a way to drop a dime on the Bushies without overstepping his bounds as a ranking member of the Senate Intelligence Committee:
"He's got something on Bush. He just can't figure out how to use it."
All I can say is: use it, Bob, use it!
