Michael Chertcoff (Dual Israeli/US citizen) wrote it, not John Ashcroft. Inside the Patriot Act, it gives immunity to ANY Israeli against litigation related to 9/11. If the public knew this, there would be an uprising against the Act….
my next question is, really, is it illegal, technically, for a US government to devise and carry out a self-directed attack, so called inside or false flag operation, for a "national security reasons"?
..the big problem is that it included civilian casualties, it was on American soil, and it is all wrong anyway. ...
But HOW ELSE would you justify or carry out Afghanistan and Iraq military occupations, if it there wasn't 911 controlled demolition?
