"The information that the Central Intelligence Agency has obtained by questioning men like Khalid Sheik Mohammed has provided valuable information and has helped disrupt terrorist plots, including strikes within the United States.UPDATE: Bush said "Planned attacks" and not "Plane attacks".
For example, Khalid Sheik Mohammed described the design of plane attacks on building inside the U.S. and how operatives were directed to carry them out. That is valuable information for those of us who have the responsibility to protect the American people.
He told us the operatives had been instructed to ensure that the explosives went off at a point that was high enough to prevent people trapped above from escaping."
He may also have meant "explosions" not "explosives". Nevertheless, even if he meant "explosions went off a point that was high enough", the sentence makes no sense. Wouldn't they want the explosions (from the plane crash?) to go off low enough to keep more people trapped? He was reading when he mentioned the explosives.
The point of this post is that it is all very interesting as to why he brought up this bone of contention for the critics of the 9/11 official story. What are they trying to tell us? Or not tell us? I believed that the buildings came down by natural causes and that the explosions were caused by jet fuel and floors collapsing from fire. Why on earth would he bring this up?
