I live in the past-always have and always will-it is my profession. I have very little interest in current events, such as partisan political
struggles, domestic agendas, or social issues. Seldom am I involved in anything that is not a decade or more in the past.
The events of September 11th are an exception in that I have ties to the region in question along with large hard files on many of the players. Along
with that comes 3 decades of dealing with the American government in the areas of intelligence, both domestic and foreign, along with law enforcement
and incarceration issues. I have contacts in every single country in the world who are in the same occupation as I am.
Therefore, on ATS I always speak from a position of strength. Plainly put I know what I am talking about-or I will say this is not my area of
expertise. I don't understand cyber terrorism in a technical sense, however I am well schooled in it's application and impact. Surly, you can see
for yourself the number of posters here who simply post with nothing but emotion, and very few facts.
In a rare event I was highly effected, emotionally, upon on studying the facts of attack on the US Cole. I knew what was coming and was simply stunned
that President Clinton, due to his failings to control his personal impulses, was powerless to respond due to political concerns, of an upcoming
I already had a large, personal knowledge of not only of Al'qida, but years of study of Osama bin Laden and his motivations and determination to
strike the American homeland. At the time it is quite likely that 99.9% of American citizens even knew he existed, much less a threat. I remember
President Clinton saying as he watched events unfold on the morning of September 11th how " my entire world drained out of me and I was left in a
void of depression and guilt at the thought that I allowed this to happen"
I felt the exact same way-and still do. Perhaps that will give you an understanding of why I post the things I do.
