Why an Underwear Bomber Trial with an Entrapment Defense Would be One of the Greatest Events in U.S. History
[...] It seems to me, that now that the Underwear Bomber is representing himself, or possibly using new attorneys, that the use of an entrapment defense is not out of the question. The use of such a defense could be one of the greatest moments in the history of the United States of America. Only through a defense such as this, could the full involvement of the U.S. Government be fully discovered and divulged. Please consider the following:
Americans: Too Gullible, Too Uneducated, Too Jingoistic to Remain a Free People - We Are Officially a Police State
"An American Police State was inevitable once Americans let "their" government get away with 9/11."
It Is Official: The US Is A Police State
By Paul Craig Roberts
On September 24, Jason Ditz reported on Antiwar.com that "the FBI is confirming that this morning they began a number of raids against the homes of antiwar activists in Illinois, Minneapolis, Michigan, and North Carolina, claiming that they are ‘seeking evidence relating to activities concerning the material support of terrorism.’"
Now we know what Homeland Security (sic) secretary Janet Napolitano meant when she said on September 10: "The old view that ‘if we fight the terrorists abroad, we won’t have to fight them here’ is just that — the old view." The new view, Napolitano said, is "to counter violent extremism right here at home."
"Violent extremism" is one of those undefined police state terms that will mean whatever the government wants it to mean. In this morning’s FBI foray into the homes of American citizens of conscience, it means antiwar activists, whose activities are equated with "the material support of terrorism," just as conservatives equated Vietnam era antiwar protesters with giving material support to communism.
9/11 facts, part 1

Free-fall speed means that as the top portion of this building fell, there was nothing below it (in its path of descent) that slowed it down.
The official account acknowledges that this collapse cannot be attributed to impact of the plane. (In the case of WTC-1, collapse did not occur until 103 minutes after impact.) Instead, the official theory is that this building came down as the result of fires in the building that weakened the structural steel. After the plane's fuel burned off in less than the first 10 minutes, these fires would have been no hotter than 500 degrees.
