My Personal Litmus Test For Intelligence In Others
The morning of 9/11 I heard about it on a car radio on the way to a store. When I got back home I was all over the internet while listening to a radio and my wife was glued to the television.
I remember yelling to her in the other room "Why the hell are they repeating Osama Bin Laden's name over and over again?"
What was happening was that a vast conspiracy, carefully planned, was being executed right in front of our eyes. In the minutes and hours after our own government and Israeli agents blew buildings up and we were horrified by people leaping to their deaths over and over on TV, carefully placed assets were drilling the myth of Osama and AQ into our subconsciousness during that critical window of opportunity for them, while we were at our most vulnerable.
