AC and The Jews

Kleinheider wants to know if Israel had advanced knowledge about the Towers' destruction.

I get that A.C. is not one of the pro-Israel nuts (such as me), but really?

There was an in depth piece in the Sunday Herald by Neal Mackay on 02 November, 2003.

It was debated to death at that point. The original story, thin on evidence, has become part of the anti-Jew lexicon of hate, alongside the Pakistani News Service's claim that 4000 Jews did not show up for work on 9/11.

I doubt there's more to say about it now except this:

Why resurrect the question except to sully Israeli-American relations? Or to further sully the reputations of the Jews?

Come to think of it, those Jews have never fully answered the Blood Libel either.

To quote Elvis Costello: What's so funny about peace, love, and understanding?

It upsets me that people are still hung up on who may have known what pre 9/11. There were obviously flaws in all systems of intelligence.

I may sound libertarian when I say this: I believe the burden of bureacracy is the fundamental cause of intelligence failures around 9/11. The government is too big and not cooperative enough within itself to guard against possible threats.

There may have been Israeli intelligence that could have prevented 9/11, but the reality is that no one in the US Government probably would have done anything differently had he or she been warned.
