17. Hmm..

That's all I ask. I will concede that the official story is fucked up - now tell me what really happened.

Well, my friend you hit the nail right on the head here. If you admit the OCT is flawed in some regards, then all bets are open. As you know, the 9/11 Commission had subpeona powers (which I beleive they didn't use), had millions of budget (not as much as some people wish) and yet, put out a "fucked up" story about the most tragic attack on civilians on US soil in history. In history.

The fact that they put this out can be seen as 1) coincidence: they "flipped a coin" and ended up with a whitewash 2) they, or some elements of it, willingly have not looked at certain issues making sure the "fable" that Clarke and Tenet spitted out right on the morning of 9/11 ("it smells like al-Qaeda", bin Laden, etc) stayed intact, or tried to explain it rather than trying to see if it was true. That's right on the morning of an event that supposedly came as a surprise.

After all, the commission admits it itself; their purpose wasn't to place the blame on anyone, rather to make recommendation, ie: to "fix" the "system" by injecting more of your taxpayers money in the "system". Do you know anyone by the name of System ? So don't be surprised if the alternative CT'ers don't have solid answers for you - a 9/11 Commission 2.0.

You know, people with serious (or sometimes less serious) questions will ask them here. Then some people will try to explain it. Some will explain it trough a conspiracy or suggest a coverup while others will try to find ways back into the OCT; no matter who's right - it (OCT) needs to be "fixed" over and over again.

I don't really want to hear apologies for the official theory from people in here.

I want to hear them from the people who are in charge or were in charge in testimonies under oath in public hearings. Not explanations from people, no matter how appealing, on internet forums.

I want them to speak about this ISI 100,000$ wire to Atta or this "insider trading" information that miraculously came out of a newsletter trough a fax machine, for example. Among dozens of other questions, or issues.

And by the way, if you want to know how security services can have all the proofs they need to arrest terrorists but yet, choose to let/make it happen and coverup for 18 years, here's the story
