What might cause another 9/11?

•, By Glenn Greenwald

Today’s defense of President Obama from Andrew Sullivan is devoted to refuting Conor Friedersdorf’s criticism of Obama’s drone program. Says Sullivan:

What frustrates me about Conor’s position – and Greenwald’s as well – is that it kind of assumes 9/11 didn’t happen or couldn’t happen again, and dismisses far too glibly the president’s actual responsibility as commander-in-chief to counter these acts of mass terror.

This is exactly backward. I absolutely believe that another 9/11 is possible. And the reason I believe it’s so possible is that people like Andrew Sullivan — and George Packer — have spent the last decade publicly cheering for American violence brought to the Muslim world, and they continue to do so (now more than ever under Obama). Far from believing that another 9/11 can’t happen, I’m amazed that it hasn’t already, and am quite confident that at some point it will.

What might cause another 9/11? - The unwillingness of the American public to get behind another Middle East conflict and the unwillingness to send our militaries into harms way for that nasty little place called Israel. The title of this should read, "What will cause another false flag op as was done on 9/11?" That would be the same answer as to the first question. You have to have a horrible false flag blamed on an innocent country and its people before you can get the many fools here in the United States to follow along again into the pit, just like going into Iraq.
