It just goes to show you, that if you own the government there isn't much you can't do.
It would be ideal though to know where all the money that was made went too? Was it used to finance or pay back something else?
Could 9-11 have been a concerted attempt to raise without immediate suspicion money for the nation itself to make a debt payment, or to finance some grand project.
Is it as simple as money perhaps going to a few insider's personal fortunes like Bush and Rothschild, who has also long been behind Brown Brothers Harriman? Once you have clear ties to the CIA that Bush was once the director of, you can't rule out the Agency funding and endowing itself to carry out projects and plans then absent of congressional oversight for funding.

So people actually bought and sold shares before 9/11, those bastards.
But wait: don't they trade shares like every day and every hour of the day?
Now if Nobody traded any shares on the previous year on 9/11 then........
Highly publicized allegations of insider trading in advance of 9/11 generally rest on reports of unusual pre-9/11 trading activity in companies whose stock plummeted after the attacks. Some unusual trading did in fact occur, but each such trade proved to have an innocuous explanation. For example, the volume of put options instruments that pay off only when a stock drops in price surged in the parent companies of United Airlines on September 6 and American Airlines on September 10 highly suspicious trading on its face. Yet, further investigation has revealed that the trading had no connection with 9/11. A single U.S.-based institutional investor with no conceivable ties to al Qaeda purchased 95 percent of the UAL puts on September 6 as part of a trading strategy that also included buying 115,000 shares of American on September 10. Similarly, much of the seemingly suspicious trading in American on September 10 was traced to a specific U.S.-based options trading newsletter, faxed to its subscribers on Sunday, September 9, which recommended these trades. The SEC and FBI, aided by other agencies and the securities industry, devoted enormous resources to investigating this issue, including securing the cooperation of many foreign governments. These investigators have found that the apparently suspicious consistently proved innocuous.
You do not need to understand the depths of darkness behind the events on 9/11 to know that progressive politics is the only sensible approach to the world's current state of insanity. One does need to understand the truth behind 9/11 in order for progressive politics to be sustainable. In other words, regular people need to know what they are up against or their movements will continue to be co-opted. That's what this book is about. - Daniel Strover/Amazon.com
Pre-9/11 Put Options on Companies Hurt by Attack Indicates Foreknowledge
Financial transactions in the days before the attack suggest that certain individuals used foreknowledge of the attack to reap huge profits. 1 The evidence of insider trading includes:
Huge surges in purchases of put options on stocks of the two airlines used in the attack -- United Airlines and American Airlines
Surges in purchases of put options on stocks of reinsurance companies expected to pay out billions to cover losses from the attack -- Munich Re and the AXA Group
Surges in purchases of put options on stocks of financial services companies hurt by the attack -- Merrill Lynch & Co., and Morgan Stanley and Bank of America
Huge surge in purchases of call options of stock of a weapons manufacturer expected to gain from the attack -- Raytheon
Huge surges in purchases of 5-Year US Treasury Notes
In each case, the anomalous purchases translated into large profits as soon as the stock market opened a week after the attack: put options were used on stocks that would be hurt by the attack, and call options were used on stocks that would benefit.
Put and call options are contracts that allow their holders to sell and buy assets, respectively, at specified prices by a certain date. Put options allow their holders to profit from declines in stock values because they allow stocks to be bought at market price and sold for the higher option price. The ratio of the volume of put option contracts to call option contracts is called the put/call ratio. The ratio is usually less than one, with a value of around 0.8 considered normal. 2

Find someone that was in the military and deployed to Saudi Arabia for Operation Southern Watch who was in that country weeks before 9-11.
Ask them what happened over there weeks before 9-11. Ask them if they still have the "thing" which Saudi Arabia forced them to get......
It's a story you haven't heard yet...and relates to the insider trading prior to 9-11.
