The book shows that America is now a Lawless State but doesn't look at its "Counter Cultural Revolution". Does a 50 year countercultural assault on traditional America, Christianity, U.S. history and the Constitution have some relevance to the present situation or not? Were the Counterculturalists just enabling the Police/Warfare State or did they think they were building a better world?
The author doesn't ask the question but at least he highlights 9/11 as the catalyst in bringing on the P/W State, with the article format unfortunately only blurring the issue. Maybe he could have emphasized the following points:

2) Preparation for demolition takes several weeks so Silverstein had prior knowledge of 9/11.
3) The US government/ judiciary/ Congress/ CIA/ FBI and news media all refusing to treat Silverstein as a suspect.
In reality, Silverstein isn't only a suspect, he's also a personal friend of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, so perhaps the author could have followed the trail:
This is the same Netanyahu,who held a celebration to commemorate the Irgun bombing of the King David Hotel (headquarters of the British Mandate Government of Palestine) in which Zionist activists dressed as Arabs placed milk churns filled with explosives against the main columns of the building.Read more ›
