    September 17, 2004

    Over the last couple of days, I saw Michael Moore's movie/documentary 'Fahrenheit 911'. The movie is about the policies of the Bush administration towards what happened post September 11, 2001. Afghanistan and Iraq are obviously talked about in great detail.

    Moore questions the various actions and invariably ends up linking them to some connection between the Bush family, the Saudi royal family and the Bin Laden family. He shows footage of Donald Rumsfeld shaking hands with Saddam.

    If some of Moore's findings on the relationship between the Bin Laden family and the Bush family are true, then really it means that US security was compromised by none other than George Bush and his father, former President George W Bush. The Washington Post reveals how oil & gas played a major role in the US handling of the Taliban through the 1990s. The Taliban in fact visited guess who's state to talk about the pipeline. There're unconfirmed reports that Hamid Karzai was a former consultant [or employee?] to Unocal! So it all seems to fit in, but the truth still needs to be discovered.

    Read a contrary opinion on such an emotive issue as the US response to Sep 11, 2001. For the record, I hate referring to it as 9/11 [or 11/9 for that matter]. I refuse to accept that its a date which will be remembered forever and people wouldnt bother about the year it happened. India's independence day was 15/August/1947. Not 15/August, or 8/15 or 15/8.
