Rarely are human beings motivated by other than profit and greed. I think there has been creative, insightful and just plain stupid conjecture
regarding 9/11. The reality is that very few people have enough intel to piece it together. This long list of the mostly uninformed includes me.
So a person might look at it from another angle. After 9/11, many in the top echelons of the US government railed one thing or another about how
things must CHANGE, be different in the name of security. They DEMANDED it. I recall seeing a couple of Senators on a rooftop or balcony in DC being
interviewed on 9/11, and they were already verbally smacking other people about lack of funding for the military, intelligence and police bureaus. And
then came sweeping draconian changes in the very nature of the separation of powers in our government, new executive powers that only a few decades
before would be unthinkable. The link below to the Presidential EO that I have read word-for-word sets up Bush as "king" to say "off with their
heads" as final judge and arbiter over death sentences for detainees, after secret kangaroo court trials. That isn't the America I want to help
make, restore, or be a part of. That sounds a lot more like Stalin or Hitler than the Elected President of the United States of America.
Does anyone EVER remember a SINGLE man woman or child of Islamic faith making ANY demands? Did Osama's video messages require money, territory, freed
prisoners, or any other concessions? Instead his translated rhetoric was like a bad Hollywood retread of old Soviet Block propaganda about how we in
the West are "bad" in general and must be punished, taught a lesson, in an open ended series of strikes with no meaning or value for Bin Laden's
organization beyond the symbolic.
Even Ted Kazinsky made demands. BUT THE ISLAMISTS HAVE DEMANDED NOTHING before, during or after 9/11. Instead, it was the President and his Cabinet,
along with Advisors and Appointees that have made all of the demands. Its interesting to note that in one way or another, most of the players have
been rotated out of office, and have gone dark and silent in the media.
Follow the money. $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $
A parting thought. When the news of "secret wire taps" came to light, there was a telling counter statistic. The Federal requests for wiretaps since
9/11 were barely more than a hundred individual requests across the ENTIRE COUNTRY for the whole year following the attacks. Many of those were for
drug dealers and human trafficing. If a guy steals his own Rolex watch, then he won't look for the thief while he thinks no one is watching him,
BECAUSE HE ALREADY KNOWS WHO DID IT. Thus no wire tapping or surveilance was required. Once that obvious gaff was revealed, they had to make the
embarrassing "confession" that they were reading everyone emails in SECRET against the law, when in fact there is no available record to back up
their claim they've been trying hard to find the guys who... took the Rolex.
