Thanks for posting that, TheO. Dr. Steven Jones analyzes the 9/11 tower falls as well as anyone. With a Phd, he's certainly not to be dismissed on his lack of sholarly approach. All everyone else needs to know is how to spell thermite.
For those of you don't believe the government could do this to its own citizenry, I only ask why would you think that? That it's never happened? If you think that you've missed out on a couple centuries of history right here in the US. The Gulf Of Tonkin incident causing Vietnam ring a bell? The USS Liberty surviving the aerial raid in 1967? (It was supposed to sink without witnesses.) Pretty much most of the major amounts of military deaths for the US during the 20th century have come after the sinking of ships. The Maine in the Havana harbor got us riled up and into the Spanish-American War of 1898. The Lusitania stupidly venturing into u-boat infested waters got us angried up and into WWI. Pearl Harbor and all those ships including the Arizona on the "Day of infamy" got us into WWII. A country always needs a motivated populace to go to war. In the past century 9/11 was the first time the US went to war not directly due to a ship sinking.
