I don't think that Iraq is the main thing that feeds conspiracy theories, but I do agree that stupidity is part of what does.
When you look at all the missed opportunities there were to uncover and stop some of the conspirators its easy to believe that you aren't just looking at incompetence but complicity. Examples: the CIA helped one of the terrorists get into and stay in this country even though they knew he was a terrorist. The FBI had a laptop which if they had looked at it would have given them clear evidence about the coming plot. Agents in the FBI asked for a warrant to look at the computer but were refused by their bosses. Other agents in the FBI were concerned about reports of middle eastern men taking flight classes and only learning to take off not land. They also wanted to investigate and were refused. Then there is the smoking gun memo hand delivered to Bush titled "Bin Laden determined to strike the US" the month before the attack.
I don't agree with most of the conspiracy theories but I can see how people would look at all these examples of incompetence and think there is something more behind it.
