Just an idea with nothing to back it up.
It is unlikely that 9/11 occurred with no 'preparation' before the 2000 election. With that in mind and looking at this from the standpoint of the
REAL behind the scenes players who control the white house puppets, it seems logical that Bill Clinton's role in that preparation would be to bolster
the economy. This theory works regardless of whether or not he "knew" the plan.
With a major surplus available and most average Americans having done well during the 90's, we could literally AFFORD to wage an expensive war.
The plan would be to just make sure there's enough money to get started with a strong footing in the mid-east. Then by the time we wake up to the
reality that there's a problem, there's no choice but to continue .. unless we want Arabs knocking on our doors.
If the economy had not been built up for 8 years, the public would have been hesitant about war considering rough times at home.
The last thing the Bush administration had to worry about in selling the Iraq invasion idea to the public, was that people would be initially
concerned with the cost.
