Shell Game

Now I have seen it all. In today’s edition of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Dateline DC attempts to put the blame for Osama Bin Laden and al-Qaida on the Russians. In short, this person claims that with the collapse of the Soviet Union the Russians wanted to exact revenge on the US and subsequently were behind the growth of Islamic terrorism.

The activities of the FSB show that they, and thousands of former KGB officers and Communist Party officials, want lasting revenge for their defeat in the Cold War. They also want to dominate world resources and markets, while maintaining the corrupt affluence of their oligarchs. The United States remains the “main enemy,” and what better way than terrorism to damage our country.

This looks to me like a clear attempt by the GOP to shift the focus of the war on terror to an enemy that American’s remember all too well. Unfortunately it is a farce, Osama Bin Laden was not a KGB (FSB) plant, he was hired by the CIA in their effort to disrupt the Soviets in their decade long war in Afghanistan. I guess we should not be surprised though considering that the pResident was on Capital Hill yesterday trying to formulate a plan with Congressional Republicans for how to deal with the latest barrage of bad news about their war. I wouldn’t be surprised if Johnnie Cochran, Robert Shapiro, Barry Scheck and the crew were not there as well helping them to formulate this plan. “Could it have been drug smugglers? Maybe Aliens? No, no, how about the Soviets!”
