A Real Criminal Conspiracy

Check out my latest at the Partial Observer. Excerpt:
The power that George W. Bush and Barack Obama asserted for themselves by invoking the "terrorist" threat does suggest that 9/11 was similar in intent and result as Germany's 1933 Reichstag fire - to give more power to The State. I'm not saying that the U.S. government was behind 9/11 in the same way it is assumed the Nazis were behind the Reichstag fire. And our democratic traditions are much stronger than they were in Germany, so we weren't about to fall for claims of "dictator for life" - and probably never will. But within the American context, it is clear that Washington DC exploited the event to advance its own power.

Was there a conspiracy behind 9/11? Debatable. Was there a conspiracy post-9/11? Unquestionably.
