It's really hard to tell for sure. But one reason why the government would have wanted it to seem like an inside job (regardless if it was or not) is
to purvey an image of Power and Control by using Fear.
Which do you fear and respect more?
1. A government who is so ineffective and beurocratically slow that they allowed an attack of this magnitude occur.
2. A government who is so precise and evil that they pulled off the largest and most complex operations in all of human history.
If the government was involved, they dont mind that many people think they did it, as those people now fear the government for the things they are
If the government was not involved, they still wouldn't mind people thinking they did it, because it continues to instill the fear in the masses, and
makes them seem less competent.
