This was very interesting in showing how terror is used as a political tool today, however I think it is deeply flawed in many areas. It omits Third Reich and CIA involvement (at different times) in the creation of the Muslim Brotherhood. More importantly, it give the impression that 911 was unexpected mana from heaven for the neocons who then ran with it. Nonsense. 911 and the subsequent invasions in the middle east were planned years in advance. See Brzezinski's "Grand Chessboard" from 1996 which reads like a play book for what has happened since 911.
Did the 2000 coup that put W in the white house just coincidently happen ? It also buys into the idea that the 19 clowns with box cutters really did pull off the attacks. Read Webster Tarpley's work or Mike Ruppert's "Crossing the Rubicon". We know better, don't we?

Thanks for posting this. It does have some good information, but I personally find it horribly misleading on extremely important points. In intelligence parlance - "limited hangout".

Namaste

Thanks as always for your thoughtful impressions. Did you watch parts 1 & 2? Three is weaker for many of the reasons you state but 1 and 2 give great historical background on how the ideology behind PNAC developed among other things. In 'loose change' there are a number of unasked and unanswered questions. What I expect to be able to do ultimately is bit by bit, piece by piece over time, through different sources, be able to get a clearer picture what what really on 9/11.
What I am certain about is that it was an inside job.

I did watch 1 and 2 (as I had simple tasks to do all morning, I did a "Nightmares" marathon). You are right, they do have a lot of good information. Huge actually.

My main problem with it all is the background theme of "accidental" history. It seems their view is that there are groups of people working toward their own goals - neocons, muslim brotherhood, taliban, etc. - but that history is carried forward by a series of serendipitous events that just happen to fit together. In part, history is like that, but not to the extent presented here IMHO.

I hope my comments don't come off as negative. These is a very informative and powerful documentary. It is good to get a lot of information from various angles and do as you are doing, which is to integrate it into a more clear picture of what happened.

My only caveat is that once we reach a certain level of understanding, it is time to act. A lot of people made a career or life long hobby of studying the JFK assassination and the powers that be fed into it to keep everyone running in circles.

If we aren't careful, they will have us arguing over bits of physical evidence forever, when there are plenty enough facts that everyone can agree on to prove an inside job.

But I digress.

Great series of videos, Swim. Just pointing to a need to watch with a critical eye with regard to what is not said.

Panda...I agree. Critical thinking is essential in our quest for truth. I have no desire to chase this into my grave. My goal here is to bring to light the many, many unaswered questions about 911 until there is an REAL investigation. I still have a real life. Thanks so much for your input and for coming over to see me.
