Why CT's Don't Get Hired to Run Covert Ops
The Man: Thanks for coming in CT. We asked you here today because we need your proven track record of cracking secret government plots using Google. We are about to implement our secret plan to stage a fake terrorist attack on American soil and we need your expertise in spotting the telltale signs of an inside job to make sure the plan goes as smoothly and simply as possible, leaving no trace, evidence or witnesses behind.
CT: Well, I'm honored. But before I help you guys, what's in it for me.
The Man: The job pays standard shill rate, as per the union contract.
CT: Awesome. So what's the plan?
The Man: Well CT, our plan is very simple. We have tricked 19 young men into thinking they are working for a well-known Islamist radical group and are going to attack world famous, iconic symbols of American economic, military and political power while killing thousands of American's.
CT: What are the targets and how are they going to be attacked?
The Man: The World Trade Center Twin Towers, the Pentagon and the nations Capitol Building. We are going to stage it to look like a terrorists did it by hijacking and crashing 4 planes into them like Kamikaze's.
CT: Great, but what's the objective?
The Man: To justify a war in Iraq that most of the American public already wants of course. That way we can steal Iraq's oil, allowing the Iraqi's to sell it to our best and closest allies in the world; the Chinese.
CT: Who are the terrorists?
The Man: All are Iraqi's so we can make it look like Iraq was responsible.
CT: We should use guys from our allies like Saudi Arabia, and Yemen operating out of Afghanistan.
The Man: Why?
CT: Don't want to be too obvious.
The Man: Right.
CT: So,… the Twin Towers are going to completely collapse, right?
The Man: Well they,… ummmmmm,… should I suppose. Our calculations show that the aircraft impacts will be 5 to 7 times greater than what the Towers were designed to withstand, which should be more than adequate to bring the towers down. Thousands of people will be killed even if the Towers don't completely collapse so I don't think it matters much either way. The American people will wake up, see the Towers burning on their TV's with people jumping from them to escape the flames and demand immediate action.
CT: Casualties are all well and good but we have to make sure the Twin Towers completely collapse. The American public is not going to be traumatized into going to war just because thousands of innocent people are burned to death. They only care about buildings and if the Twin Towers don't completely collapse at free-fall speed into their own footprint the American public just won't support a war.
The Man: But our focus groups are telling us that,….
CT: Screw the focus groups. The American people will not go to war just because thousands of American's were killed on their own soil. They only care about buildings, not people. Trust me, I'm a conspiracy theorist. I know.
The Man: Well OK, If you say so. That's why we brought you on board. The trick of course is to absolutely ensure that the Twin Towers collapse while convincing the public it was a terrorist Kamikaze attack. I know, we fill some LD containers full of explosives and put those on the planes so they explode on impact with enough force to cause the immediate collapse of the building. That way no one has time to escape and the death toll will be in the tens of thousands.
CT: No way. Too complicated. I think we should hire some elevator repairmen to go into these most secure public buildings in the world and have them rig the entire building with explosive charges, starting at the exact floors where the planes will hit, then working downwards. Should take a handful of guys a couple of days max.
The Man: I think you are being a bit optimistic about the scope of the work. That would take a team of hundreds of men months to do. And all those office spaces they are working in would be fully occupied. People would notice.
CT: Nobody pays attention to an elevator repairman.
