7. this ties in ...

The fact that this has never been their goal leads me to believe that they aren't all that unhappy that the 9/11 attacks happened.



This ties in with "The Shock Doctrine" that has been mentioned on other DU threads. It (911) was the perfect "shock" that allowed bush/neocons to implement their plans.
