Below the Fold for October 27

Time now for a special one-story edition of Below the Fold:

We Report...

Sourpuss literatus Gore Vidal, who now resides in Italy, has delivered his analysis of September 11, 2001.

He alleges in the London Observer that the Bush administration (a) knew about the attacks in advance and didn't act, (b) doesn't know who committed the slaughter -- thus contradicting point (a), and (c) that the Bush junta -- Vidal's description -- used the slaughter as an excuse to wage war in that modern-day Eden, Afghanistan -- and to crack down on civil liberties in the U.S.

Now, we know who's writing Woody Harrelson's stuff.
