I'd like to add, I believe your stance is correct, that the people seeking truth in this matter should be looking to uncover the fraud that was committed afterwards as opposed to things leading up to the event. As you said it is fairly transparent. If you take one card out of the house, the rest will fall.edit on 10-3-2011 by boncho because: clarification
Library Journal : Amazon Review :
In this book based on his Pulitzer Prize-winning series of articles for the Philadelphia Inquirer, journalist Weiner probes the way the Pentagon has used secret budgets to fund huge military programs.
This has grown to the point that there are now more than 100 multimillion- and multibillion-dollar weapons systems, many of them nuclear weapons designed to fight and win World Wars III and IV, built without the awareness of the public or even the Congress.
Weiner takes a close look at programs such as the Stealth bomber and provides fascinating detail from Congressional testimony.
The thesis of the book--that secrecy in government military programs is antithetical to democracy--is well documented and hugely important.
As the Cold War draws to a close and military budgets come under attack, the public and Congress may tend to forget the defense establishment's inclination toward secrecy and self-perpetuation.
Weiner's book serves as a timely reminder that this would be unwise.
Highly recommended. - Jennifer Scarlott, World Policy Inst., New York Copyright 1990 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Good thread OP, SaF
Many people often believe conspiracy theories because they have seen a suggestive youtube video about the subject. I mean, how can such a beautifully compiled and narrated video be not accurate?
The way to go is to look in depth at BOTH official and unofficial theories, refutations and counter-refutations, and compare them with facts. And dont be afraid to admit you have not yet made up your mind, that you are still researching (like myself in case of 911). Dogmatic belief in both stances that is not backed by research wont help to discover the truth.
Blue light regulates our secretion of melatonin, the sleep hormone. Exposed to blue light, we limit the production of melatonin, and we stay alert and awake; in the absence of blue light, melatonin production ramps up, and we get sleepy.
