Tomorrow is the 17th anniversary of Donald Rumsfeld announcing that the Pentagon couldn’t account for $2.3 trillion.
Something happened the day after that sent this little snippet of information down the ‘memory hole’.
Other notable events include put options on certain airlines surging to the phenomenal high of 285 times their average. People make money on ‘put’ options when share prices drop.
The presidential papers of Ronald Reagan and Vice President George Bush were due to be made public when George W. Bush took office in January, 2001. However, George W. Bush first delayed the release for 90 days, and then repeated the action, pushing the date back into September, 2001. On November 1, 2001, Bush issued Executive Order 13233, limiting public access to the records of former U.S. presidents. The Bush executive order also includes the documents of former vice presidents.
I guess it takes something really spectacular to distract from that much ‘unfortunate’ information.
To add to the odd occurrences, On September 11, George W. Bush and the White House staff began taking a regimen of Cipro, which is a powerful antibiotic. Maybe someone in the US government of had pre-knowledge of the anthrax attacks in the near future?
