Afghan campaign premeditated

This is curious: US had plans to attack Afghanistan before 9.11. Now of course, I don’t doubt that the Pentagon has contingency plans on file for invasions of every country on the planet, but the claim in the article is that they were aiming to attack in October anyway. Then again, we need not trust what Pakistani officials have to say; they played a big part in getting the Taliban in power and many of them would love to make the US look stupid.

Oh damn, I was going to lay off the Current Situation stuff for a while. Blast.
