First. The intense, non stop, morning to night war drills, began five weeks BEFORE 911, of american navy personnel stationed in Japan and en route after 911 to the Afghanistan war theatre and discontinued completely when their tour there was ended.

Second. The planting and wiring of bombs and cutter charges witnessed prior to the 911 building collapse. y\You would think something this large could not be hidden - and you are right, it wasn't.

Fourth. The sophisticated nature of the bombs used in the Bali bombings used as a psyop to get the Australian public to drop its resistance to the Iraq war, which ONLY the American military could possess and certainly not within the means of the accused so called "Bali bombers" to either procure or deploy.

Fifth.
