haha yes,many angles to the insider knowldge thing. The premise I gather from judy's weak hypothesis is that Bush administration insiders profited from "insider" a la advanced knowleedge of 9/11. Thats a hardsell IMO. First, A) one needs to show that ANYONE profited from advanced knowledge of 9/11. Second, Judy needs to show that it was not (only) saudi royal/rich, al-qauda insiders, other middle eastern power/knowledge brokers that profited from "A", but also specifically Bush admin insiders. A very hard sell. To subscribe, send a message to: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Or go to: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/FairfieldLife/ and click 'Join This Group!' Yahoo!
