That's a pass on your reasoning skills!
Next question: What is "Al Queda" really? How did they get the finances, organization, and opportunity to play their part in this disaster? (Assuming they even DID play a part. The FBI claims it has NO EVIDENCE that Bin Laden planned it.)
What were the Nazis really? What were the Soviets really? What were the African slave traders really?
They were desperate people given crazy leaders who were pushed into acting like criminals. By...something or someone. This is what we are all having trouble putting our fingers on. What pushed these people so far over the edge? It certainly wasn't a force that anyone could agree was rational or "good."
But I suggest to you that this force, however you decide to characterize it, is the force that has been "playing us the whole time."
