Conspiracy Theorists #1's response: To facilitate another "galvanizing Pearl Harbor event." And, I'm talking about a big "event." [BTW, I searched PNAC's website, it appears they have redacted the Pearl Harbor reference] It's a helluva lot easier to slip a dirty bomb, or even a nuc, in a place if your the one guarding the door. But I think the strategy is not so much to lead us into another military adventure, which I am sure that will follow; but rather to lead to the establishment of an...

The "new Pearl harbor" reference is still there, Kweli...

That's Just because some folks didn't grow up around black people doesn't give ANYONE the right to rewrite history to one's standards, especially erasing an entire race's accomplishments from out the history books.
