Shift in Saddam disinfo coincided with Enron scandal

Today according to Australian Eastern Standard Time when this item was posted
2001 USA, Enron scandal: Enron filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection five days after Dynegy cancelled a US$8.4 billion buyout bid – one of the largest bankruptcies in the history of the United States.

When the Enron scandal hit the front pages, it has been shown by textual analysis of USA newspapers, that Osama bin Laden (who had been front page news for three months, about the limit of the public's attention span for top stories), gave way to Saddam Hussein as the demon that George W Bush said American should now go gunning for.

Critics have noted that Bush was closely allied with certain of the top executives of Enron, and also note the strage 'coincidence' of the insertion of Hussein into the mainstream media discourse at this time.
