What is the improvement??? :) :)

Many of these were already regurgitated over and over here in PA and Current Events. Just a quick rundown:

1) The length of time to scramble jets to incercept the flights.

Fighters were sent from Falmouth, MA, instead of closer locations at LaGuardia and Ft.Dix.

2) Why the Secret Service didn't immediately whisk away Dubya instead of letting him sit there with "My Pet Goat"?

This one was highly discussed over and over here. If the whole country was under attack, the SS should have quickly whisked Dubya away, rather than allow him to be at a site that was a publicly disclosed event.

3) The immediate "destruction of evidence" of the steel and rubble. (Much of the steel was cut up and sold for scrap.)

In most other major disasters with building collapses, e.g. Oklahoma City, the rubble and structural steel was analyzed. Not so with the WTC towers or associated buildings. Even with the conspiracy theories that maybe they were "helped" along with explosives, it could very well be that Al Qeada could have been found to do this to "help" the WTC fall, or fall if the plane impacts didn't take them down themselves. But little investigation was done.

4) Dubya delaying the formation of the WTC commission and delaying giving info to the commission itself.

Another often-discussed issue here. But more effort was spent on making it looked like Dubya was trying to avoid looking like he was at fault or not. Although we didn't learn too much very startling, just the short August PDF message, all attempts at Dubya installing the investigation made it look like he was hiding something.

Lots of other interesting questions outside of the above issues, but again, some of them I admit are REALLY way out there.
