the "joke" of this, although it isn't funny, is that the path taken is self-destructive.

as you say, the instant response was real and immensely strong. The sympathy was terrific and from everywhere.

however, the more abuse and trouble there is from the current administration, the greater the damage to the US economy.

planning involves many factors - including economy and reputation. If people are not given the facts, or at least an attempt at providing the facts of what happened, then how can planning such a complex project with so many implications be undertaken ? It can't.

if, as expected, there is an unprovoked attack on Iraq, then I believe that there will be no interest either in finding out what happened or what is built at the WTC. People will draw their own conclusions.
