I'm not normally
one to go looking for ways to defend the Bush White House. But here's a good reason to. Georgia's frequently intemperate and outrageous congresswoman Cynthia McKinney has apparently accused
the Bush administration of having specific foreknowledge of the September 11 attacks and having done nothing so as to undertake a military buildup to benefit the Carlyle Group
, an admittedly shadowy defense industry player with many contacts to the administration. What's even more outrageous is that McKinney doesn't even seem to claim to have any evidence. It would be one thing I guess if she actually had a Oliver Stone-esque story she was going on. But she doesn't.
