Many people have pointed out the possiblity that 9/11 was a clone of Pearl Harbor, an attack on the U.S. that was deliberately allowed to take place to further the war aims of a president. But more sinister comparison has been made by those skeptical of of the motives of the Bush administration.
They claim that what happened was more akin to Adolf Hitler's burning of Reichstag, the German Republic's parliament, on February 27, 1933. Hitler blamed the fire on Communitsts plotting against the state. But historians widely accept the view that a member of the Prussian interior ministry set fire to the building deliberately, on Hitler's orders. Immediately after the fire Hitler announced an emergency decree which suspended the normal civilian rights and liberties of citizens and gave the government enormous authority to impose order....On October 3, 2001 Congress approved Bush's Patriot Act, a similar bill which reduced the civil liberties of Americans and allowed the detention without trial of anyone the government deemed a potential "security threat."

A propos of this thread, I must encourage all to read Naomi Wolf's seminal work on the Nazi rise to power and the tactics of the Bush/Cheney government:The End of America: A Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot
One can get the gist of her presentation from this video on YouTube:
Have you ever wondered why Adolph Hitler remains an icon today and yet Stalin, Lenin, Mao and many more pale in comparison?

Um, you are aware the Jews are not a race of people right? And I'm not a Holocaust expert but did live in Germany for five years and have talked to a lot of older German citizens about history.
They are normal, everyday people to me but they were not able to see clearly through all of Hitler's lies in that time or so they told me.
Maybe they are liars, maybe they were embarassed or maybe they were telling the truth and you simply could not wiki Hitler at that time to get all the facts we have now.
Smoking bans, weapon bans, the US looks more like it everyday to me only they learned from Hitler's mistakes and take a slower, more gradual approach to getting people to support horror.
