      •  Thank you but look at here (0+ / 0-)

        The following is from the document:

        Requirements for a Successful Attack
        As some of the core operatives prepared to leave for the United States, al Qaeda's leaders could have reflected on what they needed to be able to do in order to organize and conduct a complex international terrorist operation to inflict catastrophic harm. We believe such a list of requirements would have included

        1)leaders able to evaluate, approve, and supervise the planning and direction of the operation;
        2)communications sufficient to enable planning and direction of the operatives and those who would be helping them;
        3)a personnel system that could recruit candidates, vet them, indoctrinate them, and give them necessary training;
        4)an intelligence effort to gather required information and form assessments of enemy strengths and weaknesses;
        5)the ability to move people; and
        the ability to raise and move the necessary money.

        It looks like they forgot to add the most important "requirement" to the list and that would be THE KEEPING OF SUCH A COMPLEX OPERATION SECRET FROM OUR INTELLIGENCE

        To my opinion that would be impossible and the impossibility of such a task is the KEY where we need to start thinking from.

        I do not know how 9/11 happened since I have no way of knowing that but I can point out how it could NOT have happened simply by following some logic.
