On Friday night, there was a gripping recreation of Flight 11's attack on 
the WTC, the one directed by Mohammad Atta. The more interesting question 
is not about whether such people had sufficient flying skills. Rather, it 
is how in the world you could get 20 or so CIA agents, or any other spooks 
with sufficient skills, to kill themselves by flying Boeing passenger jets 
into the two chief symbols of American military and financial power. I 
would have loved to have been a fly on the wall at those planning sessions.

CIA Director: Okay, Biff, you are going to head up the attack on the North 
Tower. We need somebody who has experience flying Boeing 767's and you have 
plenty of that from your days at Air America.

Biff Stiffington: Okay, sir. Just make sure that my wife is taken care of 
and that my eldest son gets into Yale.
