The Mother of All Issues

The worse things get for the US in Iraq, and elsewhere, the more scrutiny is going to revert to the catalyst of the Bush foreign policy initiatives: The War On Terror and the attacks on September 11, 2001.

The question that needs to be asked in the mainstream media isn't being raised there, and most Americans seem unwilling to entertain doubts about the veracity of the official story. But there are writers and publications asking:
The question must be posed: did one or more agencies or high-level officials provide protection for known Al Qaeda associates who ultimately participated in the hijack-bombings?

One of my recurring conclusions and provoked reflections on the information that has been disgorged by official investigations is summed up in this same WSW article.
There can hardly remain any serious doubt that a section of the American intelligence apparatus functioned as the guardian angels for at least some of the suicide hijackers. The question is: why?

Until there is an investigation of 9/11 by a genuinely independent body—one wholly free of the US military/intelligence apparatus—it is impossible to specify precisely the role of the government in these events.
