Had just returned to Atlantic Canada from Portsmouth NH after the first tower hit. Had we delayed a half hour, we would have been stuck on the ground...

To make us dudes feel old- High school students today, right now, are studying 9/11 as a historic event that happened before they were born.

:o ......wow.......

Downtown Toronto, one of the most high profile office buildings. Cleared out. Massive traffic jam out of DT -- at 11AM. People were scared.

I was in my last year of highschool, they put it up on the televisions in the hallway as it was happening.

I had just started teaching a recurrent ground school session at a hotel near the airport. I got a call from our operations desk asking me to get to the ER centre ASAP. It took 90 minutes to get there because the police were searching every person and vehicle trying to gain access to the airport area. Everyone in the line was milling about near their cars. Some were silent, some were chatting with acquaintances, some with complete strangers. More than a few were wiping away tears as they came to realize the depth of the tragedy from news reports on the radio. I didn't sleep well for many days thereafter.

TL;DW

But hopefully it brings back 9/11 and Iraq from “the Illuminati” to a real attack as a result of a US intelligence failure (which is nothing new... Pearl Harbor, Gary Powers, Bay of Pigs, etc) and the invasion of Iraq to the overt... but just out of reach of the law.... actions of about half a dozen US lawmakers.

Israel? Ha! They don’t care about Afghanistan and the last thing they wanted was a destabilization of a key county in Middle East from a secular dictatorship to a hotspot of sectarian violence still ongoing today.

I already answered your question. It did not benefit Israel. You’re starting with a premise that Israel wanted this to happen and are trying to make the pieces fit.

Yeah, Israel and Iraq weren’t exactly friends but it’s all about the devil you know. Iraq was strategically and militarily impotent in the wake of the Gulf War. The words “power vacuum” and “Vietnam” were all over people’s mouths in late 2002 as the war drums beat... how much more so in the Mossad?

Syria was as a result of the spillover of the Iraq War. Considering the huge comedy of errors and unintended consequences of the entire Middle Eastern sojourn it borders on the edge of the impossible that Israel would have planned 9/11 to give cause to invade Iraq (even though the two events weren’t at all related) so that an insurgency taking advantage of the chaos of the Arab Spring would destabilize the Syrian Government so the Israelis could intervene militarily.

I can't tell if you're just ignorant or some sort of neo-con maliciously lying.

Here is Netanyahu discussing the matter. Doesn't really sound like he's deescalating a conflict does it? Are you going to say he's wrong about his own countries involvement?

Israel provided the U.S. with false intelligence. U.S.'s greatest ally. The ally responsible for strafing the USS liberty for over an hour, the ally responsible for selling U.S. tech to the chinese against the U.S wishes. The ally responsible for stealing nuclear tech from the U.S. and making a radioactive mess.

It wasn't Israel directly it was the saudis. Some of the ambassadors for the hijackers had Israeli ties. Of course they claim it was for surveillance. Either they were incompetent or in on it. This is the least of it.

My point is that there is indeed a conspiracy surrounding 9/11. You disrespect the victims bringing your "The Illuminati" false conspiracy platitude.

The U.S. gov under Bush was grossly incompetent Yes. But they were taken advantage of.

Just reeking of confirmation bias. Occam’s Razor is not usually applicable to the complexities of human and social interactions... but it’s very good at destroying conspiracy theories.

YOU disrespect the victims by bringing kooky conspiracy theories dressed as rational thought.

I was in high school and heard the news of a plane hitting a building on my drive to class. In the time it took me to park and go inside the news had gone from curious to serious (I think the second plane had hit) and I remember finding out when my friend in the seat beside me said, “It’s on every channel right now. I think the Cartoon Network is probably even drawing it.”
