Before Its Time

The 1996 movie "Executive Decision" is playing a lot on cable these days. I think the flick is really, really good. I actually saw it in the theater when it first came out (with a date that turned out to be a little crazy, but that's a different, perhaps better, story). But the movie was soooooo ahead of its time. Its plot involves terrorists hijacking a commercial airliner with the intent to use it as a weapon against the United States. It even had a land based suicide bombing in its opening scenes. Creepy, good stuff.

What a premise for a movie! But dull Bush said that no one ever thought terrorists would use planes as bombs. If he won't read anything, maybe he should stay up past 9pm and go to the movies more often.

So Bush was supposed to know even though no one else had ever done anything to prevent it? Not even the previous President? Hmmm.

If that's the case, I'm sure you'll quit using your cell phone since you've read the latest book describing how it can be used to reprogram the brain.

The reason the terrorist came up with the plan is because of those damn liberal movie makers on the left coast!

I just wanted to do this right here on the blog, I'm gay. Yep, I'm coming out of the closet. I hope you all can respect my decision. This is who I am.

Hey, if all those left-coast movie makers are so prescient, why doesn't the Pentagon ask them to come up with a scheme to win/get out of Iraq?

The fact remains, “some” had the thot that planes could be used as terrorist bombs. The President said, “no one imagined they would use planes as bombs.” Maybe they did but George didn't get around to actually reading his Daily Intelligence Brief.
