There is NO evidence of any such "inside job". It is utter nonsense.
be likely are certain scenarios, outside the realm of this thread's topic. Also, have been discussed at great length, for
over a decade now.
In short: One possibility, the CIA was aware of an impending terrorist strike, and mucked it up by being too smug, thinking they had it "handled".
THAT would account for a lot of backside covering, ever since....leading to the "scent" of what the "truther movement" think
"inside job" explanation. There is a sense of something being "covered up"....hence, all these "conspiracies". ("Conspiracies", BTW, that
can't even agree with each other!!)
Along the lines of the above, is possibility #2: The "LIHOP" conjecture. (Let It Happen On Purpose). That one, to me, is so far out in left
field, it's as ridiculous as the other "conspiracies".
Looking back at option #1, above......we see a possible explanation for Bush's reaction, too. He might well been aware of the CIA's tracking and
attempts to monitor the ones who, ultimately, moved up their schedule, unbeknownst to the Agency. The realization that they goofed it up,
miserably....when, what he had maybe hoped for, was a HUGE "sting" operation, catching them just before they accomplished their goals...."red
handed", as it were......what a political coup that would have been, for him!!
But, having bungled it so badly, the consequences of his (and the CIA's) incompetence and poor judgement would have been political death.......THAT
is something to keep hidden!!!!
