43. The single, loudest alarm bell for me, weeks after it happened, was
the Bush administration's refusal to conduct an investigation into the biggest crime ever committed against the US on its own soil.

Until I read that the Bush administration had asked Tom Daschle not to hold an investigation, I really wasn't suspicious, although I did find it amazing that all three buildings fell the way they did. As I watched the first tower fall that morning, I remember screaming 'oh no, it's going to fall over and land on other buildings'. It didn't, amazingly it feel in on itself. I was relieved.

I don't know if anyone here was ever at the WTC. Those towers were HUGE. They covered an enormous area, each one of them. It boggles my mind that one plane could take them down.

I don't understand physics, nor do I know what really happened that day. But I do know that the Bush administration did not want an investigation, and that makes zero sense. Every single person I know (one of my neighbors died that day in the WTC) expected, took for granted that there would be an investigation. It seemed it would be automatic. The Fire Dept. was forbidden to do their usual investigation which they do after any fire. Why?

I don't have any answers, just dozens of questions and I do believe that something very sinister, not what we've been told, happened that day. And that scares me and a lot of other people, because it could happen again.

That's why we do need a thorough investigation, with everyone out in the open, under oath, no more secrets, no more special treatment for anyone who was responsible for the security of the country ~ I don't understand why this hasn't already happened.

The so-called investigation was a total frustration. Time was limited for questions, and people like Giuliani eg, used up the time, patting themselves on the back. Whatever time it takes to get the answers, is what should be allowed. The whole thing was a travesty, and people know things they have not revealed, imo.
