At a 9/11 conspiracy conference being held in Los Angeles, Webster Tarpley, author of 911 Synthetic Terror; Made in USA, said the September 11th attacks were "state sponsored, false- flag terrorism" designed by rogue CIA elements as a pretext to turn the United States into a police state.
What is indisputable, at any rate, is the result and the result is not less reprehensible because it may have been a reaction instead of a plan. Dramatically horrorific as the attacks on the WTC were, they were mere pin-pricks in comparison to other acts of unprovoked or unbridled agression that have stained history. It was hardly surprising that a global power should get punched up now and again. While any attack on the WTC certainly warranted a response, it did not warrant the deconstruction of civil rights and freedoms.
