Michael Collins: The Susan Lindauer Interview.
Collins: Ultimately, did Libya or Iraq provide any intelligence regarding the attack?
Lindauer: No, they did not. After the attack, it became clear that neither country could have been party to the conspiracy. Gadhaffi and bin Laden hated each other. Back in 1995, Libya was the first country in the world to warn Interpol about Osama, and urge an international warrant for his arrest. Saddam's government hated him, too. Baghdad considered Osama's extreme brand of Sunni fundamentalism to pose a serious destabilizing threat to Iraq 's moderate Sunni elite. Osama was a wrecking ball to Arab governments. They all despised him.
In fact, we pushed Iraq so hard for intelligence in the months before 9/11 that afterwards Iraqi diplomats aggressively challenged our U.S. claims of ignorance. A couple of diplomats put it to me bluntly: "Obviously you knew it was coming, because you kept telling us about it. So why didn't you stop it? Why didn't you do something before this, instead of blaming us now. You should be blaming yourselves."
Lindauer's talking. Collins is listening. If you read only one thing tonight, read this lengthy extract of an interview conducted by Michael Collins, the first one to which Lindauer has consented since the government dropped all charges against her five days before Bush left office.
It'll blow your mind. You want to know who really masterminded Lockerbie? Click the link. You want to know what the connection was between Lockerbie and September 11th? Click the link. And, as the above extract reveals, Lindauer further strengthens the case that Iraq had absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with 9/11, even to the point of having no prior knowledge.
