Hey Bob, they said that did they? So, let's just for the sake of argument concede he is talking about their investigation. He isn't, exclusively, but ok. So you believe what he says. This was also said: "Mr Kean, a Republican, spoke of a failure "of policy management, capability and above all imagination; on that September day we were unprepared. We did not grasp the magnitude of a threat that had been gathering over a considerable period of time." He conceded that the 10 commissioners had "the benefit of hindsight" that the hijackers "were flexible and resourceful" and it could not be known "whether any single step or series of steps would have defeated them". But he said none of the counter-terrorism measures adopted before the attacks disturbed or delayed the progress of the al-Qa'eda plot." And of course, you don't believe that bit huh? That's the major difference between you and reality. You interpret his complaint to mean a bullshit conspiracy rather than an attempt by the government and security services to gloss over its gross incompetency. You selectively believe part of what he says and disregard everything they conclude because it doesn't fit with your notions.
