How am I supposed to give you information i do not have?

I thought you were one of those who claimed that financial power and wealth was a paramount goal of this conspiracy?

9/16/2001 "I stress that I have not carried out this act, which appears to have been carried out by individuals with their own motivation." This denial was broadcast on U.S. news networks and worldwide.[1]

Right, I had forgotten about that. In his first public statement just 5 days after the attacks, he claimed he didn't do it. It's possible he was buying some time to dig in somewhere. Anyways, there's plenty of other transcripts of his where he does take credit and spells out how and why, on that same wiki page.

The 2001 Osama bin Laden video released on December 13, 2001
On November 9, 2001, U.S. military forces in Jalalabad found a video tape of bin Laden.[4]
On December 13, 2001, the United States State Department released a video tape apparently showing bin Laden speaking with Khaled al-Harbi and other associates, somewhere in Afghanistan, before the U.S. invasion had driven the Taliban regime from Kandahar. The State Department stated that the tape was captured by U.S. forces in Afghanistan during a raid on a house in Jalalabad.[5] The tape was aired with an accompanying [6] English translation. In this translation, Osama bin Laden displays knowledge of the timing of the actual attack a few days in advance;[7]

Some members of Scholars for 9/11 Truth believe that the man in this videotape is not Osama bin Laden at all, citing differences in weight and facial features, along with his wearing of a gold ring, which is forbidden by Muslim law, and writing with his right hand although bin Laden is left-handed.[10] Andy Laws, a former military imaging analyst for the Royal Air Force, says the fact that bin Laden appears fatter in the 2001 tape is down to the editing process, when subtitles were added and the image was squashed.[11]

Well, there's probably other tenants of the Islamic faith that he violated, beside wearing a gold ring. For example his stash of porn. Anyways, for arguments sake let's you are right, that's not OBL in that video. Fine. I will tag this video/transcript for further examination of it's content and provenance

I implied that you have been lied to about the attacks by the people who have given you the official version of the attacks

But you can't claim that since U.S. officials lied in the past about certain events, they must necessarily be lying now about 911. You may feel strongly about this, but you can't use it in a reasoned argument.

Can you give me a confirmed statement from Osama claiming responsibility? or just ones attributed to him?

I finally got a coherent, reasoned argument, from joc, on page 35. It has some weak claims, some false ones, but he makes some valid ones too. Personally, I don't think his argument is a strong one.

You are right...a lot of things don't jive well that I included.  So...allow me to refine this down a bit so that it makes more sense...a more 'reasonable' argument:
Afghanistan was Russia's Vietnam...they simply couldn't afford to go on as they were and something major had to change. Enter Ronaldus Magnus...Reagan played Gorbi like a Statovarius..SDI, Evil Empire and all that...and he also played the American Public as well as Thatcher like marionettes in a puppet show.  After all...he did come from HollyWood...which was the breeding ground for Communist Sympathisers.
Gorbi was a pawn of the KGB.  The Russian Plan was to step out of the way of a crumbling Empire and let it crumble...let the people think they were free...loose the satellites that were dragging Moscow down, retool, rethink, and set out again for their World Domination Goal.  Reagan was a hardline Soviet Communist in Conservative Sheep's Clothing.  He talked the talk Americans wanted to hear and helped the KGB bring down the Soviet Union...it was the KGB hardliners that wanted to loose the chains of the Empire.  They put Gorbachev in power and between Gorbi and Ronnie...it was a done deal.  Gorbi thought he was a hero and Reagan laughed at him all the way to the Berlin Wall.
Reagan picked George H. Bush as VP who was also a hardline communist.  It is important to remember that Communists believe the Means justifies the End, and so presenting yourself as one thing when you are quite another was just part of the Means.   Bush Sr. lost to Clinton who picked Al Gore...a hardline Communist as VP.  Al Gore lost to GW Bush and then what did he (Al Gore)do?  Set about a Global Warming Scare Campaign that left the entire world screaming Go Green!

911 was a Russian plot through and through.  It wasn't a 'long term' plot...it just came about as a 'way' when other world events presented themselves in such a fashion as to make that a justifiable goal.
In order to believe that, you have to believe Reagan was a Communist, Bush Sr was a Communist, Clinton, and Al Gore were Communists...but is that really hard to believe?  Isn't most of Washington all One Party...and which party is that..the Communist Party!

Surely if all he wanted was publicity (like all media hounds/whores) he would have claimed he did it

Preferably authenticated by Al jazeera. I used to get that channel and their world news broadcast was probably the best news programme i have seen (by that i mean they stuck to facts and left out opinion/speculation)

Did you send me that wiki link? Anyways, "Most of the tapes were released directly (by mail or messenger) to Arabic language satellite television networks, primarily al Jazeera."

Looks like 34 videos there, it may take some time. I suppose just because al Jazeera aired the video, doesn't mean they "authenticated" it.

After a quick look, I don't think I'll find any audio/video of OBL, "authenticated" by al Jazeera. Would I expect the Washington Post to authenticate audio/video clips, or expert forensic officials and counter-terrorism experts, those in a position to know? Now we have agree on the appeal to authority criteria.

It was an inside job...because the participants were part of the Government.  But the plan for World Domination has long been that of the Russian Government.

So I was thinking, yeah I know I should stop it. I think most truthers believe it was indeed Muslim fanatics who hijacked the planes. But they were controlled by U.S. govt./Russians/World Banking system.etc.

Given that Muslim fanatical attacks have continued, and increased since 911; are they still under control of these secret international organizations? Or have the reigns of power been handed back to each sheriff and mullah?

And the NWO/whatever has moved on to even more secret better tools to obtain their goal of world financial/political/military domination?

thanks
