I firmly believe (and at this point it is still a belief) that once we know exactly what happened on 9/11, on why 20 guys with boxcutters made it past a trillion dollar air defense system, on why warnings of Osama bin Laden's plans were systematically ignored, on why the attack on 9/11 seems to blend so smoothly with the economic and military plans of the Bush Administration and PNAC, that 9/11 will appear to be a phenomenon completely associated with the Bush Administration.

Knowledge is power, and the truth sell set you free - free from fear.

Bravo, Mr. K. A good summary, along with true words of wisdom!

Instead of constantly appealing to ignorance (i.e., "We don't know what happend on 9/11;" "JFK.. blah blah blah" [an irrelevant strawman, IMO]), the question should be framed as "How *could* this happen?!?" How could ATC, NORAD and our enourmous air defense systems fail over and over and over again during a time span of 77 minutes? According to the 9/11 Commission Report, AA Flight 77 hit the Pentagon (!) at 9:47, a full 51 minutes after AA Flight 11 reportedly hit WTC 1. This is the most heavily defended airspace in the world! How could steel framed buildings with 47 steel cores simply collapse at free fall speed into a pile of dust? (And why did WTC 7 collapse, controlled demolition style, at 5:20 pm -- an event not recorded in the Commission's report?)

While I agree that we don't know 100% of exaclty what transpired on 9/11, we DO know a lot about what did, and didn't, happen.

Once we free ourselves from fear, we can begin to examine the evidence.

Architects and Engineers for 9/11 truth's site is a good place to begin: http://www2.ae911truth.org/twintowers.php

The excellent documentary which focuses on the expereinces of victims' widows, "9/11: Press for Truth," is also highly recommended: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=3979568779414136481#docid=386504...

Income Inequality Has Gone Up

The chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, Jason Furman, recently wrote in the Washington Post that "Last year saw the largest single-year reduction in poverty since the 1960s."
