Coincidence: 911 happened two weeks before the media election recount

It's just a coincidence that 911 happened two weeks before the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, the LA Times, and the Miami Post-Herald were going to release their full hand recount of the ballots in Florida's 2000 election. According to the recounts, Gore received around 500 more votes than Bush. If a full hand recount was done, according to existing standards, as ordered by the Florida state Supreme Court, Gore would now be our president.

After 911, the media decided to not release the report, saying that it was unimportant now, and we must rally behind the president.

This is strictly a fortunate coincidence for Bush, and I don't want anyone to think I believe otherwise.

1. Just Another Coincidence: Condelizza Warns Willie Brown Not to Fly

We should inindate the media, our representatives, the White House, etc. and demand that Bush* not use 9/11 until he has given his blessing on a full and complete investigation - otherwise he should not be allowed to invoke it AT ALL.

18. They could have picked the timing by raiding the Iraq ISP.

The WEEK prior to 9/11 the Texas office of ISP (Infocom?). The raid shut down the computers to copy the data, RATHER than copy the data while online.

This act could have stopped communications from the 9/11 organizers that would have initiated their failsafe plans to go ahead on 9/11. George took a month long vacation just prior. The bulk of the attackers entered the US in July and August. Why did they wait two or three months.

I'd suspect that the .iq websites were open to chats by anyone. It would have been perfect for the attackers.

15. Also could their be a BETTER/CATCHIER date for danger/catasrophe than 911?

The association with danger-emergency is obviously built in. Coincidentally, the airlines chosen also have appropriate names -
On 911 America(n)is United! Or - 911 Unites America.

Coincidence? If BFEE had its choice of dates - and airlines - how could they do better?
