I read quite a few bloggers who, aside from their insights on politics and policy, which I respect, are firm believers that 9/11 was an inside job. That is, the US government played an active hand in the deaths of 3000-odd people. They've zeroed in on 2 targets, WTC #7 and the crash at the Pentagon.
Now, I can believe Bush & Co. might have had some sort of forewarning. They would have seen the political opportunity but I can't wrap my head around them having an active hand in it. One question always bothered me about the Pentagon thing and it's a question none have answered sufficiently, if at all.
If something other than an airliner full of people hit the Pentagon, where are these people today? There were people (at least one semi-famous one - Barbara Olsen) aboard an airliner over Washington who called loved ones to tell them they were aboard a hijacked plane. They were never heard from again. Are they all in on it? Did they all pledge to live their lives in anonymity in order to help the "war effort"? Why haven't any of them been inadvertently spotted somewhere on the street in the past decade?
I don't put much past Bush, Cheney, and their evil minions but until someone explains to me where those people who supposedly died that day are (read: show me fucking pictures), the worst I'll believe is that the political leadership at the time saw the opportunity to screw and bamboozle the general public and took it.
Off to court ...
