In fact, starting right after 9/11 -- at the latest -- the goal has always been to create "regime change" and instability in Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya, Sudan, Somalia and Lebanon so as to protect Israel. And the goal was never really to destroy Al Qaeda.
The September 11 attacks, that kicked off all this destruction, were an Inside Job.
US Judicial, military and Law enforcement authorities must act on the evidence that the 911 murders involved inside help, the evidence that Administration officials authorised torture, and the evidence they initiated an aggressive (& illegal) war against Iraq.
Anyone of these three points is reason enough to take action. Arrests must be made and suspects brought in for questioning. The war on terror can be stopped.
