Maybe It's A Clinton-Halliburton Plot 

Richard Clarke was a proponent of preemption against terrorists and WMD threats. George Tenet (supposedly) called the WMD case against Iraq a "slam dunk."

Both were Clinton appointees retained by President Bush.

Now I'm not saying that a massive preemptive strike against Afghanistan before 9/11 would've been politically feasible (which is unfortunate at least, scandalous at most). Nor do I suggest that the case for war in Iraq is fundamentally flawed: the WMD threat was not just actual stockpiles, but a latent capability to produce weapons that threatened to bloom with the collapse of the sanctions regime.

There is, however, something to be said about chutzpah when Democrats and the Left vilify evil neoconservative Jewish cabals or the Cheney-Halliburton axis for everything that's happened since 9/11, while those who their beloved President Clinton appointed turned out to be pretty damn pivotal in executing these conspiracies.
