Fluked the last one. I answered the "mastermind" question with Mohammed Atta (surprised he's not an answer, since he lead the group who did it) - but got credit anyway for the other guys name!

Right or wrong, the decision to invade Iraq had nothing to do with 9-11. The US invaded Iraq because of intelligence that indicated the movement of weapons of mass destruction. I don't remember it ever being attributed to 9-11.

President Bush and members of his administration made dozens of false public remarks about ties between the Iraq regime and Al-Queda. WMDs were the biggest point, sure, but they knew to harness public sentiment after 9/11. A 2003 WaPo poll found that 69% of Americans believed that Hussein was directly involved in the attacks.

Well if you accept Cheney being a culprit, then you would have to accept many different answers of people colluding. How about Silverstein taking out a huge insurance just before the attack, but after long negotiations concerning the demolition or renovation (which was far from cost-effective) of the buildings (which were far from energy-efficient). Or just about every part of the MI-complex that wanted to cut off China's access to Iran/Gwadar port (Cina-Pak economic corridor), Iran's access to the Mediterranean in Syria (well, Russia's as well) or the intelligence community looking to justify mass surveillance. They just needed an incident and a speech act to securitize a non-threat to the masses. I can't see it being much different from the "incident at Tonkin bay", the sinking of M/S Lusitania supposedly by German missiles, the burning of the Reichstag supposedly by communist arsons, the Mainila shelling or in fact even the "Rember Perl Horber".

Please do not read this as: My tinfoil hat told me they all did it! Please read this as: They all had the means, motive and opportunity, but you can't really prove one single actor actually having an active role.

Actually there were credible reports of celebrations in some parts of New Jersey. Nobody has found film of crowds of thousands, however, and it is believed that Trump mixed up the New Jersey reports with footage of Palestinians and made his remarks. Then he refused to back down because he's incredibly prideful and incapable of ever admitting he was wrong on anything. http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2015/12/exclusive_jersey_city_cop_residents_say_some_musli.html

That day, I heard the same about the disputed 'celebrations' in Jersey City. I was in Jersey City that morning - I was on the PATH train on my way to my 7WTC office. Didn't make it in that day, thankfully. But I heard on the streets from someone I encountered that there were certain individuals celebrating not far from where we were. I cannot speak to the veracity of that claim, directly, but it was also something my wife heard on the streets of Jersey City - she worked downtown in NYC and was similarly delayed (we commuted separately then - childcare drop-off/pickup). So, it either didn't happen and was just a story that got repeated and repeated, or it did and nobody got pictures of it back in the days of Nokia dumb phones. No idea what the truth is, but it is not a clear, settled matter to me - and I don't think it ever will be.

Depends on how small scale you want to go. I am sure there is no town in the world where there weren't at least a few people celebrating that the evil empire was dealt a blow.

Sure thing, and Obama was born in Kenya and is Muslim. See how easy you can distribute false info. Now, unless you're a member of the CIA, were a guy extremely close to the government during 2001 or somehow know more information than anyone else, I recommend you not say this stuff unless you're really sure about it and it's verifiable, which obviously isn't.

I was working in NYC several blocks uptown from the Towers on 9/11. The horror when each building collapsed, knowing that you were watching hundreds or thousands of people lose their lives before your eyes is indescribable. The raw human emotion just in our cafeteria was surreal. Half the people there just wanted to cry. And the other half wanted to go out and kill somebody. It was like nothing I've ever seen before in my life.
