In the early hours right after the 9/11 attacks, Paul Bremer appeared on NBC suggesting that Osama bin Laden was responsible. He was one of the first to float the name.
What Bremer failed to mention is that as he appeared on television calmly speculating about who was responsible, 1,700 of the employees the company he worked for were “missing” as a result of the attack on the South Tower of the World Trade Center.
It later turned out that over 200 were killed, one of the biggest losses of any organization that day.
Two years later, Bush put Bremer in charge of rebuilding Iraq.
There he decided against the advice of all military and diplomatic experts to disband Iraq’s army and put 400,000 armed and trained and then-cooperative soldiers in the street without any means of support and a major grudge against the US.
Bremer…on TV right after 9/11 starting the Osama did it myth and then in Iraq guaranteeing a massive and deadly insurgency.
What was Bremer doing before 9/11?
Among other things, he was the Managing Director of Kissinger Associates.
You know, Henry Kissinger. The former Harvard Professor turned adviser to the Rockefeller family who became Nixon’s foreign affairs adviser during the Vietnam War which Nixon extended for eight years beyond LBJs term.
Still think the “botched” occupation of Iraq was a mistake or a surprise?
Like Vietnam, the Iraq War is intended to bleed America dry
financially and isolate it diplomatically – and the very same cast of characters have their fingerprints all over it and profiting from it.
But try to find this very basic background information in the news media, mainstream or alternative.
