Oh darn, you SO beat me to it.
Was gonna make the exact same counter thread, but yours will do just FINE!!!!!!!!!!!
Allows law enforcement to use surveillance against more crimes of terror. Before the Patriot Act, courts could permit law enforcement to conduct electronic surveillance to investigate many ordinary, non-terrorism crimes, such as drug crimes, mail fraud, and passport fraud. Agents also could obtain wiretaps to investigate some, but not all, of the crimes that terrorists often commit. The Act enabled investigators to gather information when looking into the full range of terrorism-related crimes, including: chemical-weapons offenses, the use of weapons of mass destruction, killing Americans abroad, and terrorism financing.
Larry Silverstein, already owning WTC7, bought a 99 year lease on the twin towers, WTC4 & WTC5 for $3.2 billion only weeks before 9/11 and had the insurance specifically cover acts of terrorism.
After the WTC was demolished on 9/11, Silverstein insisted that the incident was two separate acts and insisted on a double payout. Which he received.
So not only did he make a fantastic profit from 9/11, but he got the entire WTC complex demolished for free.

I've been reading both threads now. And even though I feel certain that it was an inside job, there are things that still don't make sense to me.
If they needed a false flag to go to war , we all know that it does not take the death of nearly 3000 civillians and the destruction of three sky scrapers and the hijaking of several planes to get public backing, or to make war look just.
A few bombs and your done, or even just enough media influence and your done you've got yourself a war.
Since one of the buildings already had been the target of a terrorist attack, why does it surprise you he had terrorist coverage?
What do you think these people who had their homes flooded this summer are going to do next year? They are going to get flood insurance.
As to a ‘fantastic profit’ consider this. How much money would he have made renting all that office space for 99 years? That profit potential is now gone with the buildings.

Had to watch it about 25 times or so just to absorb it all, my head wasn't right at the time so it took me awhile. I wanted to be sure, so I started researching..... (not just on Youtube).
Then I met a new friend online along the way, someone who thought like me, got angry at injustice like me, loads of testosterone, and ready, willing, and able to fight for freedom.....
