    I asked a question on a site today ,that highlights this situation .It was quite simple but it’s implication is quite profound ,it was simply this … ” How many people realise that on 11/9/2001 in New York a van full of explosives was pulled over by the NYPD and the people in the van where arrested ?
    I’m yet to receive any answers .
    A simple question but it’s implications are world shattering .
