9/11, the Marathon Bombing, and the Security-Industrial Complex
In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings and subsequent manhunt and shootout, speculation has been rife about the attack being a "false flag operation", that is, a terrorist attack arranged by government agents for the purpose of scapegoating a particular group or nation, an example being the Reichstag fire. It's certainly not impossible.

Massachusetts NLG Calls For Explanation of Warrantless Searches
Boston, Friday, April 26, 2013: The National Lawyers Guild, Massachusetts
Chapter (NLG) continues to express its sympathy to those who were wounded and to
those who lost family members in the April 15 bombings and in the events of the
following days. We join in the hope for recovery and healing.

times of crisis in order to protect and maintain an orderly society, our legal
system includes other important protections derived from the U.S. Constitution.
Those protections must be upheld, especially in the aftermath of crisis. Indeed,
those protections are designed for times of crisis. If constitutional protections
are denied to some of us, they may one day be denied to all of us.
