You cannot say the attack was unsuccessful - you had a regime change in the US, many lost their fortunes, banks continued to collapse and the nation might still face a depression. The big question in my opinion is WHO (not why). 9/11 was picked as the date - could it be any more obvious as to why? The likelihood that "friends and allies" from "the religion of peace" committed financial suicide bombing within US institution is high right now. (The date, think of the date)

Rep. Kanjorski Drops Bomb... US Financial System Was Attacked On September 11th
Catastrophic Financial Attack On 9-11 Caused Economic Meltdown!
Rep. Paul Kanjorski (D-PA) told CSPAN: "It would have been the end of our economic and political system."
The catastrophic attack occurred on September 11, 2008?
Why is this news just now getting out?
Capitalism Gone Wild reported:Rep. Paul Kanjorski of Pennsylvania explains what former Treasury Secretary Paulson and Fed Chairman Bernanke told congress during the September 2008 closed door session. During the first third of the video an enraged caller is ranting to Rep. Kanjorski about how wasteful the first $700 billion bailout was. The best part is 2 minutes and 15 seconds into the tape where Rep. Kanjorski reveals what Paulson and Bernanke told congress that shocked them into supporting the first $700 billion bailout.Rush Limbaugh commented on this bomb earlier in the week:
On Thursday Sept 15, 2008 at roughly 11 AM The Federal Reserve noticed a tremendous draw down of money market accounts in the USA to the tune of $550 Billion dollars in a matter of an hour or two. Money was being removed electronically.
The Treasury tried to help, opened their window and pumped in $150 Billion but quickly realized they could not stem the tide. We were having an electronic run on the banks. So they decided to closed down the accounts.
Had they not closed down the accounts they estimated that by 2 PM that afternoon. Within 3 hours. $5.5 Trillion would have been withdrawn and the entire economy of the United States would have collapsed, and within 24 hours the world economy would have collapsed.The question is who was doing this? Who was withdrawing all this money? And the next question is why? That's where my mind starts exploding, and this is dangerous to have these explosions going this way. Could it have been George Soros? Could it have been a consortium of countries -- Russia, China, Venezuela -- countries that are eager to have Barack Obama elected because they know that will make it easier for them to continue their own foreign policies in the world?This is all very interesting-- When President Hussein was campaigning and the "economic crisis" hit, he did not think it pressing enough to leave the campaign trail, but now we should push through a trillion dollars in legislation without oversight because a few weeks later the King deems it urgent?
Pennsylvania Democrat reveals the financial crisis was deliberate, planned, staged:
At 2 minutes, 20 seconds into this C-SPAN video clip, Rep. Paul Kanjorski of Pennsylvania explains how the Federal Reserve told Congress members about a "tremendous draw-down of money market accounts in the United States, to the tune of $550 billion dollars." According to Kanjorski, this electronic transfer occured over the period of an hour or two.
As Rush said: "It's amazing this was said on C-SPAN on Thursday, January 27th, and nobody picked up on it."
When I started reading this, I thought we were talking about 9/11/01 - the attack on the world trade center was definitely an attack on financial institutions. Could it be that nations participated in assisting terrorists in their attempt to topple US's economy?

With a H/T to commenter 90, Paul Kanjorski is apparently another lying nut-job:
