I know what happened that day.
A bunch of crazy Islamist nutjobs drove a handful of planes in to buildings.
They caught us with our pants down, a lot like Pearl Harbor.
We thought about it, we wargamed it, but didn't really take it srsly.
Then GWB decided it was the perfect opportunity to take out the guy that tried to hit his daddy, a nice chance to wiretap and spy on us in the interest of safety, and a chance to make some political hay, which he subsequently pissed away.
I think that about sums it up.
As to whom I refer to in my last statement....choose your boogieman.
The gubmint, the puppetmasters behind the scenes, whatever.
They all fall victim to human foibles as readily as you or me, so assigning mythologic powers of prescience or infallibility in planning and execution is borderline retarded.
i'd have to say your explaination of 9/11 as you see it is completely incorrect. Bush was a more or less a victim of circumstance, and held no real power. The position of president has been powerless since JFK's assassination, therefore any wars that were to be waged is not up to the president [in reality]. To paint this solely as an agenda of the Bush family is naive considering the point i just made in the previous sentence, and the power structure in politics behind the scenes. Obviously the planning of the "powers that be" are not infallible, especially considering how much of the events that occured on 9/11 have been exposed.
the reason why i asked who you were referring to in your final paragraph earlier was to determine the angle you're looking at this with. if you were hinting at the united states government then you would be correct, as they appear to be amongst the most incompetent individuals this planet has ever seen. however, the fact that "shadow government" runs the show, and you appear to have little or zero knowledge on them, shows what they are capable of. having the mainstream media on their side helps to prevent certain information from getting out, while also tailoring the masses' reality for them.
