20 years later and I still haven’t heard any of these conspiracy nutters provide an answer—ANY answer—to this fundamental question:
If the goal was to blow up the buildings and pin the blame of foreign terrorists, wouldn’t it make far more sense to either
- Blow up the buildings with explosives (as conspiracy theorists claim happened) and tell everyone it was a bombing committed by foreign terrorists, or
- Hijack some actual airplanes and tell everyone they were hijacked by foreign terrorists?
Either one of those plans might just meet the minimum requirements for plausibility if you had the world’s most successful and leak-proof Black Ops teams on the job. But there is absolutely no reason that someone would put together a plan as batshit crazy and needlessly complicated as “let’s go with option #1 but make it appear as option #2!”
