I'm one of the few that still believe that it was 19 terrorists from the Middle East that hijacked the planes and flew them into the world trade centers.
Unless perhaps the previous attack on them during Clintons reign was a psyop as well.

You have it right, Shamrock. You have to look at the PNAC, the doctrine all set up when the attack happened. These things unfold in that way. That said, I don't think Bush had anything to do with it. There's this scripted quality to it all, and these elected officials just walk into a scene with shadowy forces, foreign and domestic pulling the strings.
But I do think its possible Gore might have been elected, and if he were a different event, scripted to him, might have unfolded.
The Clinton administration had bankrupted the intelligence community and refused to let the CIA prioritize anti-terrorism over other major priorities in the late 1990s, leaving the agency stretched too thin in the days ahead of the 2001 terrorist attacks, former Director George J. Tenet said in a 2005 document declassified Friday.
Mr. Tenet, who was head of the agency at the time of the Sept. 11 attacks and has taken severe criticism for not anticipating and heading them off, said in the document that he took the threat of Osama bin Laden very seriously, and put major effort into trying to penetrate al Qaeda, beginning as far back as 1998.
In one revelation, Mr. Tenet says those efforts averted off an earlier “major attack” planned by al Qaeda for some time in 1999 or 2000. The document gives no other details.
