The Ground Zero Grassy Knoll

Make sure your tinfoil hat is planted firmly on your head and go read this article in New York Magazine:

A new generation of conspiracy theorists is at work on a secret history of New York's most terrible day.

For Tarpley and others, this was a slam dunk: September 11 was a holocaust-as-ordered by the neocon cabal Project for the New American Century, which, like its Svengali, Leo Strauss, recognized the U.S. masses to be meth-addled, postliterate, post-logical lard-asses, a race of "sheeple" that would never rise to inherit the mantle of post-Cold War world-dominators without "some catastrophic and catalyzing event - like a new Pearl Harbor." In other words, a new Pearl Harbor like the old Pearl Harbor, which Roosevelt was supposed to have known about and used as an excuse to get us into World War II.

Pearl Harbor, the Reichstag fire, take your pick. What mattered was that 3,000 human beings were dead, freeing Manchurian Candidate Bush to decree his fraudulent War on Terror, a Social Darwinian/Hobbesian/with-us-or-against-us struggle to corner the planet's dwindling bounty - a global conflict without end in which only the strong, the white, and the Republican would survive.

The article is quite long and quite disturbing. There will probably always be more questions than answers about 9/11, but it's good to know what they are.
