116. Oh, I don't pretend to know the truth. Please don't put those words
in my mouth. I do believe that there is no evidence of CD or any nonsense that planes were not hijacked and flown into buildings.

I support a re-opening of the investigation, but mainly to establish how our intelligence apparatus failed so miserably. I am fully open to the possibility that some elements in the government were aware of the plot and failed to act. I can't see how Tenet could get off scot-free, and even get a Medal of Freedom.

The problem with an investigation is that if it gets the wrong answer, it will be considered tainted. Due to the whole three-degrees of separation thing, I think it would be impossible to get a commission that is completely free of any connections to the US government.

In that regard I expect any new investigation to fail to assuage conspiracy theorists.

And if you go back to my original entry into this thread, in which the OP posited that bin Laden had denied 9/11 culpability, I posted numerous sources where he in fact changed his story and admitted his guilt, but Truthers seemed to only see the denial, not the admissions.

That is the problem I have with this Movement. The cognizant dissonance and sheer paplable hatred of the BFEE is so seething that they have lost objectivity. If data doesn't fit their worldview, it is simply rejected.
