Bombs in the Towers - - Why and How

Here is an article discussing why and how bombs were used in the towers. The most interesting part of this article is the statement that a video interview of the witness to the power down, who I assume will be Scott Forbes, is forthcoming. This video will go a long way to making our case:

When people are exposed to the overwhelming evidence that bombs brought down the World Trade Centers on 9/11 (see for example this short article and this essay), they often ask two questions:

If rogue elements within the U.S. government did cause 9/11, why would they have used bombs, when crashing planes into the buildings would have been sufficient to act as a "Pearl Harbor" type justification for war; and

How could bombs have been planted in the heavily-populated trade centers without people noticing?

The answers are, actually, pretty straightforward.

Why Were Bombs Used?

Planes alone would not have scared the American people to the point where we would have relinquished -- for the sake of security -- traditional American ideals of fighting only defensive wars and of having broad personal freedoms (we weren't necessarily following these ideals; but Americans at least believed in them). The war in Iraq and the wholesale suspension of personal liberties -- through the Patriot Acts and secret executive orders -- could not have happened without the "shock and awe" of the collapse of the Twin Towers.

How Were Bombs Planted?

there was a power down in the Twin Towers on the weekend before 9/11, security cameras were shut down, and many workers ran around busily doing things unobserved, according to a network administrator working at a large corporation housed in the Twin Towers (I have personally spoken with this witness, and a video interview shot by someone else should soon be publicly released)
