The significance of this article is not that it makes dramatic new revelations about 9-11, but that it is the 1st time a mainstream magazine has cast doubt on the official story.
The late Alex Cockburn was independent many ways, but dismissive of 9-11 Truth. Here, his brother Andrew takes off from the story of a lawsuit against the Saudi government by family of 9-11 victims. The suit threatens to unravel the whole official story, and it will not be easy to pin blame on the Saudis alone without the roles of the CIA and possibly Mosad coming to light. Cockburn writes about "breathtaking incompetence" of our FBI in not investigating links, and it is a short step to conclude that their failure to follow up on clues was intentional. Sen Bob Graham says there were direct orders from the White House not to investigate some leads.
