"I believe that their motive was to sanitize the record and thus prevent the public from understanding the full depth of the FBI/Department of Justice missteps in the years leading up to September 11. So "walls" were intentionally built, and key intelligence was withheld from other agencies, including the CIA and DIA. In any other government enterprise, the consequences might have been more benign but in the realm of national security that compartmentalization of intelligence proved fatal. "

Seeing as it's 11 September, you might want to go by Sibel Edmond's place and listen to her most recent podcast with investigative journalist Peter Lance. You'll be amazed at the amount of screw-ups that led to the destruction of the Twin Towers.
Now, the question is: Were those screw-ups just your garden variety screw-ups by government or were they something far more sinister?
On the same subject, you might want to take a look at the fifty questions the Asia Times' Pepe Escobar asks on this anniversary. Escobar makes this comment about "whitewash" and a "mythical historical narrative" which ties in well with the Peter Lance interview:
It's useless to expect US corporate media and the ruling elites' political operatives to call for a true, in-depth investigation into the attacks on the US on September 11, 2001. Whitewash has been the norm. But even establishment highlight Dr Zbig "Grand Chessboard" Brzezinski, a former national security advisor, has admitted to the US Senate that the post-9/11 "war on terror" is a "mythical historical narrative".
The interview runs just over an hour and it's packed with information. It's not to be missed.
I also have a recent post over there on the Rendon Group's recent antics in Afghanistan.
