Exactly, right?

The point was a showy terrorist attack, they got a showy terrorist attack, and they got to start their wars.

Pearl Harbor was just fine the way it was, FDR didn't need to plant charges under the deck of the Arizona.

The Feds let 9/11 happen just like they let Pearl Harbor happen. There was no need for them to even get involved. They already admitted they knew about it beforehand, and did nothing about it. Why not ride that horse instead of the highly speculative and strategically meaningless demo-charge story?
