Imagine a hypothetical situation where a team of vicious thieves 
plots an exceptionally violent bank robbery in the downtown financial 
district of a major city. Numerous anomalies are noticed during the 
commission of this crime.

  The bank tellers are not able to send out an alarm to the police 
even though banks have numerous hidden silent alarms for foiling 

  The police take an extraordinarily long amount of time to show up on 
the scene, despite an unblemished record of fast response to prior 

  The cops who do eventually respond are not dispatched from the 
nearest police station, but from a suburban police force many miles 
away that travels far below emergency speeds to intercept the robbers.

  The criminals are business partners of the chief of police and the 
Mayor, the Mayor\'s youngest brother is a director of the company 
providing security to the bank, and the City\'s comptroller (in charge 
of the money) came from a company in charge of remotely accessing the 
bank\'s electronics (which could explain the lack of transmission of 
an alarm at the start of the robbery).

The City Council passes new laws immediately after the robbery to 
crack down on the financial freedoms of the town\'s citizens, using 
the pretext that the police had an \"intelligence failure\" caused by 
inadequate budgets and inability of different departments to properly 
communicate with each other.

The newspapers report that nearby towns warned the police that the 
robbery was about to happen, but never collect all of these warnings 
into one report to show the overwhelming evidence that the City\'s 
elite deliberately allowed the robbers to act unhindered.

Despite these prior warnings, the police act surprised when notified 
it was underway. The commander of the nearest police station 
continues working at his desk despite the robbery across the street. 
The Mayor is holding a photo opportunity at a nearby elementary 
school, and continues reading to second graders even after his 
assistant whispers in his ear that bank robbers had just committed 
the largest mass murder in the city\'s history.

The region\'s liberal, \"alternative\" newspaper that had previously 
published accurate reports about the Mayor\'s corruption scandals 
attacks independent journalists who dare to describe these anomalies.

The police forces of the city and nearby cities were following the 
robbers before their assault on the bank, and the identity of the 
robbers (as declared by police spokespersons after the fact) is 
disputed by press accounts that several of the robbers have good 
alibis for being in other cities at the time.

Finally, long after the fact, information surfaces that the police 
were conducting practice exercises simulating official response to 
bank robbers. Some of the responding officers were away at this \"war 
game\" at the police training academy and therefore were unable to 
apprehend the perpetrators. The honest cops who were in the station 
were confused by other drills simulating robberies at the other banks 
in the city, drills that were scheduled by the top political and 
police leadership of the city at the same time as the real robberies, 
which made it difficult for the honest cops to determine which bank 
to protect until after the crimes were completed.

9/11 Soundbites

The only intelligence failure of 9/11 is the failure of the media and
  much of the public to point out the obvious flaws in the official 
stories of September 11.

the Republican convention in New York, 911/2004 -- returning to the 
scene of their crime

the myth of 9/11 is that a larger police state system would have been 
able to stop it from happening
  however, the physical evidence suggests that
  9/11 was an inside job
  with the goals of domestic fascism and global empire

More than a dozen countries warned the Bush administration about 9/11 --
  there was no \"intelligence failure\" that requires more police state 
powers It was an intelligence CRIME.

On September 11, the National Reconnaissance Office (which runs the spy
  satellites), was conducting a \"plane into building\" scenario with the CIA
  at the NRO\'s Virginia headquarters (near Dulles airport). This was not a
  \"terrorism\" exercise, it merely tested the emergency response that would be
  be needed if a plane crashed into the NRO headquarters. This exercise resulted
  in the evacuation of America\'s spy satellite control center just as 
the 9/11 \"attacks\" began.

On September 11, NORAD was also conducting war games -- four different
  war games that managed to paralyze part of the air defense system,
  making an effective response to the hijacked planes impossible.
  The \"new Warren Commission\" has not investigated the NRO or NORAD 
war games on 9/11.  see

Khalid bin Mahfouz (Osama\'s brother in law) was a business partner of 
former NJ Governor
  Thomas Kean, who heads the \"new Warren Commission\" supposedly 
investigating 9/11

Gen. Ralph Eberhart, commander of NORAD on 9/11
  promoted to head the new \"Northern Command\"
  afterwards - if 9/11 was an intelligence \"failure\"
  General Eberhart would have been court-martialed
