After the ground zero event in 2001, somebody suspected that it was a conspiracy by White House. But I don’t think Bush had that intelligence and boldness.

But Obama has them.

In the progress of US troops going home, such an alarm can make them stay longer. Whose interest is it? Maybe the current Iraqi government, but they can only do that under acquiescence of US.

Obama promoted retreating from Iraq in election. But both McCain and Obama himself know that it’s impossible and disadvantage for US. He had to lie to voters for a victory.

But when it turns to real policies, he has to act against his promise. So he must find some reason to do that. Of course it’s too dangerous to carry out a real terrorist attack, so they just made such a plot and foiled it. It’s a perfect plan!

Iraqi forces foil 9/11-style plot

BAGHDAD – Iraqi security forces disrupted a 9/11-style plot by al-Qaida in Iraq to fly hijacked planes into Shiite religious shrines, Iraqi and US officials said Wednesday.

Iraqi security officials said they temporarily shut down at least two airports and have arrested two men — one of the intended pilots and an airport worker — suspected in the plot, which appeared aimed at undermining the country's stability while US troops prepare to go home.

Iraqi Defense Minister Abdul-Qader al-Obeidi told reporters in Najaf that the airport "will be reopened soon, after discussing the needed security measures." He said the intelligence about the attacks is unclear but "at the same time, we can't neglect them."

He did not confirm or comment on any of the specific allegations.

Details of the alleged plot were sketchy, and at least one Iraqi official denied it.
