What Was the Path to 9/11? What Was the Path to 9/11?

- (Huffington) - 1 years, 3 months ago...

Donald Trump could destroy his base Time for Trump to talk about 9/11, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama President Barack Obama held a news conference but seemed to focus on Donald Trump which begs the question -- if Trump cannot be elected, why obsess about him? Part of the reason is that he makes a convenient target when President Obama is playing the elder statesman role, as when he suggests that Senate Republicans should not obstruct and oppose his Supreme Court nominee, as he, Sen. Obama, himself did when he opposed President George W. Bush's nominees. But each time President Obama attacks Trump, he solidifies Trump's base. He also will provide Trump with the opportunity to reply and go on the attack against him. Trump likes the prestige position of being attacked by the President and going against him. In short order, I'll outline why criticism of Obama should go all the way back to the roots of 9/11 and President Bill Clinton, and then end up at the collapse of Iraq and the rise of ISIS> Earlier I saw Jeb Bush simulating Trump on the attack against him. He almost seemed to suggest Trump was barking before ending up with the word "Jeb" or "Bush." And before that, I saw Donald Trump who reported to his audience that he turned on the television and saw Hillary barking. He would not, he assured his audience to laughter, replicate it. Funny stuff aside, if Bernie keeps raising money and making inroads among nonwhites, she is likely to go sharply negative. In New Hampshire, Hillary lost, Trump won, both big time. Trump, who is less threatened than Hillary, goes negative nonetheless. In his grand strategy, he has his eye on November, so he already tries to distance himself from the Republican Party by his frontal assault on the Bush family. But he went way too far. Now, he needs to get the discussion back to how 9/11 happened, and turn the dialogue to less about Bush and more about Hillary. Trump is, after all, running for the Republican nomination. There is a range of opinion on the Iraq War, and Donald Trump has crossed a line from which he ought to turn back. In his rhetoric he has gone beyond questioning the judgment and competence of former President George W. Bush. Trump aims to be the standard bearer of the Republican Party, but he has questioned the integrity and good faith of the party's most recent president. Trump even flirted with the leftist notion that Bush should have been impeached. Viewed by the extreme Left, the war was an exercise in conspiracy. Big Business and the Military Industrial Complex colluded with Big Oil. Contrary to J.A. Hobson and Karl Marx, capitalism does not require perpetual war for prosperity; actually, the opposite is true -- war misallocates resources and impairs organic economic growth. Imperialism is not a consequence of capitalist economies using military might to conquer nations for raw materials. Instead, it is a corollary to an ideology of expansionist c...
