A decision, at some level, "to allow the widely expected big
attack to get through" would leave traces, no?  Again, a conspiracy
must be immune to defectors and to people wanting to write a lot
of books and become celebrities like John Dean.

Now, how many people would have to be involved in that 
conspiracy?  (I honestly ask for estimates.)  Do you suppose
that the 9-11 pictures, TV shots of people jumping from 
buildings, and so on, never cause these people remorse
or second thoughts?  All in all, conspiracies require a lot
of evidence to be believed in.
