Incompetence? We are always told it was about incompetence, whether it is thousands who died, or missing millions, billions or trillions, it is always supposed to stem from incompetence? So THEY say, but they are the ones who always appear to profit from all that // incompetence \\?! The only thing incompetent about 9/11 is all those who forever proclaim nobody came forward, without ever researching who exactly was aboard those four airliners that day, and who exactly were among the group who died at the Pentagon that day, et cetera? Just find out who those unique three groups, and unique three individuals were aboard those four airliners, and everything falls into place. Quite the opposite of incompetence, Posner!
