    yeah, "The 9/11 attack is one of the most tragic event written in the history. It killed thousands of people and destroyed establishment like the World trade center. Innocent people were being killed just because of thet foolish revenge which only Bin Ladens group started. In fact, according to the documentary, it is speculated that Bush and Bin Laden had a hidden agreement which is failed to do. And that also mean that President Bush was also responsible for the bombing. Therefore, i can rate him as criminal, for killing innocent people in Iraq-- the quite country that never had an enemy but surprisingly had an irksome encounter due to American attack."
