If we were any other courthouse in the country, and the judge or prosecutors came out and said "we didn't figure everything out" we don't dismiss those statements and say "ah, well, that's good enough." No, indeed those words are given credence. Why isn't that happening now?
Personally, I really don't believe that there were bombs in the buildings. I agree with my political guru Noam Chomsky in that obscure phenomenons can occur during major events.
In 2007, MIT spent $598.3 million for on-campus research. The federal government was the largest source of sponsored research, with the Department of Health and Human Services granting $201.6 million, Department of Defense $90.6 million, Department of Energy $64.9 million, National Science Foundation $65.1 million, and NASA $27.9 million.

Recently I was in a thread talking about the crash at Shanksville and I looked at some YouTube video of the local coroner, Wally Miller. On the day of the crash he said that his job had stopped after twenty minutes because there was no evidence that anybody had been on the plane.
Miller was among the very first to arrive after 10:06 on the magnificently sunny morning of September 11. He was stunned at how small the smoking crater looked, he says, "like someone took a scrap truck, dug a 10-foot ditch and dumped all this trash into it." Once he was able to absorb the scene, Miller says, "I stopped being coroner after about 20 minutes, because there were no bodies there. It became like a giant funeral service."
Hundreds of searchers who climbed the hemlocks and combed the woods for weeks were able to find about 1,500 mostly scorched samples of human tissue totaling less than 600 pounds, or about 8 percent of the total.
But the shock wave from Flight 93, a few hundred yards away, spewed debris through the woods with such force that it blew out all the windows and doors and shook the foundation on Barry's place.

Yes, I've seen that video. Look, I'm not saying there WASN'T bombs, I just look at it this way: if the government allowed the attacks, why would the buildings need to come down completely in order to get a shock reaction from the people? Two planes coming into the towers isn't enough? The risk it would be in actually having to go into the buildings - unseen by anybody - and setting bombs up all over the place...sort of makes me wonder...that whole area is filled with people all the time. Nobody say a crew go into the buildings with equipment? Not one?
Also...I knew of an arson that took place a few years back... So my own experience says that when something happens, all sorts of questions and speculations are going to be thrown around
As for Chomsky, I've heard the "left-gatekeeper" notion before...maybe, maybe not, but he's the one who first introduced me to America's imperialist agenda...supporting dictators and whatnot...So, even if he is trying to steer people away from the crazy conspiracy theories - he's dead on with his scathing criticisms of U.S. policy.
