Uh, Sundialsvcs, can you give us a point-by-point summary of what you think happened, focusing on the "Ws" (who, what, when)?

I have a good idea of what you think did not happen, but only a vague idea of what you think did happen (a private company planted explosives in buildings 1, 2, and 7 without anyone noticing, the fire department followed orders to stay away, etc).

Quite honestly, Dugan, "I don't have any idea."

Furthermore – "obviously, the Totality of this whole thing was So Much BIGGER than New York!" We had multiple simultaneous hijackings by people who had learned something about how to fly an airplane. We had clearly military targets as well as civilian ones. And, two airplanes "just happened" to crash into two (out of three) buildings that had been rigged with explosives. And the officials sure did seem to be acting strangely. And, oh yeah, "FEMA just happened to have arrived the day before."

I don't understand it all, and I will not profess to try.

My very-candid take on the matter is that there is quite-likely to be even more(!) to this awful puzzle that none of us have "a cucking floo" about. I sense that we are now peering, from the outside, through a veil of Secrecy which is able to conceal some things but of course not everything. And I am actually in support of that secrecy in this case.

And no, "this isn't a 'cop-out.'"
