Blame the Liberals for 9-11 Yet Again?

A new book hit the store shelves blaming the left for radical Muslim terrorists attacking the U.S. on September 11th, 2001. Was it written by Rev. Jerry Falwell or his counterpart Pat Robertson? Did Rush Limbaugh or Dick Cheney pen the tome? Did President Bush dictate it as the great Suggestor of Democrats operating from a “pre 9-11” mentality? Nope, none of those stellar conservatives wrote the book.

Once a book hits the market, task one is promotion. Author Dinesh D’Souza took on Stephne Colbert in an effort to drive up interest and sales. The two part interview showed why anyone with a book should think twice before going on The Colbert Report. Part I has considerable revisionist history. But Part 2 is fall down on the floor laugh worthy.

Conservatives will only draw root cause as far back as it suits their purposes or lands at the feet of their opposition. Why not draw it all the way back to Christ? To the Garden of Eden?

Heck it doesn't really matter where it stops, however its usefulness lies in its ability to predict future behavior or actions. So far Bush can't predict his way out of a wet paper bag. The Hamas election victory in the Palestinian Territories surprised him, the New Orleans levee failure left him flummoxed, and Israeli cluster bomblets by the hundreds of thousands surely wouldn't kill any innocent Lebanese...
