Eight years later, the attacks still strike indignation in the hearts and minds of Americans. Most of America's citizens continue to go along with the idea that somehow and in some way America is still obligated to continue to respond to the attacks through war or drone strikes overseas.

But, do Americans even know what the U.S. is still responding to? I write that with the utmost respect for all the 9/11 First Responders and families who were involved in pulling bodies out of the rubble or who were involved in the clean up in the aftermath of the attacks.

Aside from the fact that 9/11 continues to provide justification for the United States to commit atrocities in any country in any place on the globe, there is also the reality that many questions about 9/11 remain unanswered. And, unfortunately, it is politically untenable for leaders to seek answers to those questions on behalf of 9/11 families and first responders.

Last night, it was reported by ABC News, a mainstream corporate news media source, that:

"[36-year-old Elie] Assaad, who posed as 'Mohammed' -- a personal representative of Osama bin Laden, says he's a "million percent positive" the 9/11 attacks could have been stopped if the FBI had gone after Atta and Shukrujumah. But because Atta and his men were suspicious of the FBI undercover operative, and secretive, Assaad says his FBI agent handlers sent him after the easier target -- two wannabe terrorists whose cases were easy to crack and who were both eventually convicted and sent to prison.

"I was right, I was a hundred percent right," Assaad says of his suspicions. He says that when he learned that Atta was one of the 9/11 hijackers, when the FBI asked if he could identify any of the attackers, he was "very upset, angry" and cried."

News stories of this type have seeped out into the public sphere regularly since the 9/11 attacks.
