I'd be willing to accept that someone at some level knew

about some potential impending attacks and did nothing to stop them. Actually, with some of the stories about Mossad agents and their actions it seems pretty clear that they had some foreknowledge. I do not, however, buy that either the US government or the Mossad had any active involvement in the attacks. The reason for this is that the risk simply does not outweigh the gain. If the American people were to ever figure out that Mossad was behind the attacks it would spell the end for the state of Israel. Also, if there was any Government action it would spell the end of the government, and the resultant upheaval would likely reverse 100 years of progressive political gains. The risk simply isn't worth the potential gains.....BUT if you knew about it ahead of time and were able to make propoganda and legigislative hay out of the attacks occuring without getting your hands dirty....WELL that is another animal indeed. I expect such a scenario would be very tempting to a power hungry government indeed. What it all comes down to is the risk simply isn't worth the reward when considering something just this large.
