Why investigate 9/11? The simple answer is because the current administration has failed to do so. The official investigation has been handled poorly by any standards and the information released to the American public well after the fact is woefully inadequate. But yet they have used 9/11 to justify a number of policies that affect us all. That day has changed our world forever and I want to understand why.
If my life had been lost in one of these events I would appreciate people asking honest questions about what happened. That is how I approach this. This is not a partisan effort on my part - it is every citizens right to know. I would ask the same questions of anybody in charge.
The philosophical premise of governing a nation according to Strauss involves basically two things - a noble lie to motivate the people and perpetual war to keep them from becoming too free. Donald Rumsfeld's speech announcing the 2006 Defense Review was entitled "The Long War".
Some of the observations here support the "official" story. I can only say I've been diligent and honest in my approach. Whatever I found is what I found. I considered both the official story and the alternative theories every step of the way. I believe if researchers quit arguing over red flags and straw men amongst each other then we can collectively discover what really happened.
They deceived us into the Middle East but they will resort to force to keep us there. They truly believe they know what's best for the world and the individual human being doesn't matter to them. I for one am standing up and saying their imagined utopia does not justify their means.
"The Bush administration announced Thursday that the U.S. government will not hand over control of the Internet to any other organization, a surprise move that could presage an international flap" (Source).

The president can have the Internet's domain name resolution system shut down literally with a few keystrokes.
