Hindsight

Luke Ryland responds to the release of the CIA/911 Inspector General's report, saying we finally have objective, factual, specific evidence that there was a post-911 cover-up:
To take one example, in April 2001, a highly credible asset told the FBI that:

1) Osama bin Laden was planning a major terrorist attack in the United States targeting four or five major cities;
2) the attack was going to involve airplanes;
3) some of the individuals in charge of carrying out this attack were already in place in the United States;
4) the attack was going to be carried out soon, in a few months.

That information did not appear in the 911 Commission report. At all.
Conclusion:
We can't investigate the actual people behind the people behind 911 because we are making too much money off those relationships. We have to strip you of your civil liberties to protect you from terrorism, but we'll ignore 80% of the causes of terrorism because our wallets, and campaign contributions, depend on it.
