    We wanted to kill him.
    Taliban protected him.
    We decided to kill Taliban.

    This is the explanation with the fewest assumptions.
    We all know it was GWB that blew up the towers.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    We all know GWB invaded Afghanistan and Iraq illegally so that America could exploit the natural resources of the M.E. for money, killing millions of innocent people as a result.

    Exactly. To justify invading Afghanistan, we have to assume that GWB blew up the towers and was in cahoots with suicidal hijackers to crash four planes.

    Oil and Gas = Energy.

    I had no inkling that lapis lazuli had strategic value.

    I had no idea Technocracy included warp drives! Sign me up for a time-share in the Betelgeuse system, baby!

    This is a very nice specimen that a friend brought back for me. He's back there now on another tour.
