13. LIHOP and MIHOP

depend on them KNOWING first. If they held no senior intel staff meetings and didn't have the information, then they couldn't LIHOP or MIHOP. My whole theory is that they were too focused on carving up Iraq's oilfields and returning to Reagan-era military programs (i.e. "Star Wars" to be focused on Al-Queda as a security/intelligence concern, especially because they considered Clinton to have been obsessed with OBL and they were equally obsessed with doing the opposite of anything Clinton did/was doing before they took office. IMHO they simply got caught with their very expensive pants down on 09/11/01- for which they suffered no political or criminal consequences (W's poll numbers shot sky high) and, as you put it, exploited to the max.
