I realised a few months ago that that's how they did the big attacks.

The thing that swung it for me was an interview I heard on BBC Radio 4 with a former British agent who had infiltrated the IRA in Northern Ireland as a bomb-maker. He claimed that to prove his cover he came to America and received bomb-making materials/expertise from the FBI! (Which he then took back to Northern Ireland).

He stated the he knew he had made bombs and warned of bombs which had killed civilians, but for whatever reason they were allowed to go ahead so as not to break his 'cover'.

My feeling is that the US/UK intelligence prefer to control the terrorists as much as possible because that means they know exactly what's happening and can control the aftermath too. But now with the neocon's idea of "creating reality" they're doing it on a much bigger scale.

on edit: also it was disclosed a few months ago that one of the main leaders of Sinn Fein (political wing of the IRA) was a British agent.
