Did Machiavelli have a hand in events of 9/11?

Machiavelli wrote, “There are many who think a wise prince ought, when
he has the chance, to foment astutely some enmity, so that by suppressing it
he will augment his greatness.”

This tactic has often been used or considered. Germany was blamed during World
War I for an unprovoked attack on the “Lusitania,” which was carrying
arms to the British, and the Vietnam War was expanded based on a false report
on Aug. 4, 1964, of an attack in the Gulf of Tonkin.

Operation Northwoods, a 1962 military plan to fake a Cuban attack on the U.S.,
proposed shooting down a civilian plane with Americans onboard.

Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, representing more than 560 professionals,
has released a report stating that the collapse of the World Trade Center towers
and World Trade Center Building 7 showed the signs of controlled demolition,
including a rapid and symmetrical fall, clouds of pyroclastic (heated) smoke
and debris, and residue of the incendiary agent thermate in dust samples taken
from the site. Building 7 had no collisions or fuel fires, yet fell in free-fall
speed into its own footprint. In similar buildings, fire has produced only softening
in the steel, never total collapse.

In a Dec. 28 letter, FBI Assistant Director for Counterterrorism Michael Heimbach
wrote that the group “presents an interesting theory, backed by thorough
research and analysis.” Would a full investigation prove that Machiavelli’s
statement also describes the events of 9/11?
