115. Box cutters would have been useless against secured cockpits
9/11 did NOT have to happen. It did, not only because Bush didn't give a shit about the intelligence, but because the airlines, for years, ignored the recommendation that they spend the money to secure cockpit doors.
El Al secured their cockpits years before 9/11 and had no more hijackings.

9/11 happened because the goddamned airlines cared more about their balance sheets than they did human life.
