Will 9/11 conspiracy theories ever stop ?

For 10 years conspiracy theorists have speculated over the truth behind the September 11th attacks.

About the only thing that everyone agrees upon is that two planes hit the World Trade Center - beyond that conspiracy theorists have speculated a vast array of alternative events and motives. But will everyone ever agree on what really happened ?

"It is impossible to quantify the number of people who subscribe to truther theories, but at least one poll taken five years after the attacks revealed that as many as one out of three Americans believed the US government was either behind the attacks, or knew about them in advance and purposefully did nothing."

It reminds me of the "Osama" that they allegedly killed in Pakistan. I'm sorry, but have they released photos of the raid that I'm not aware of? I don't always follow the news so it isn't implausible that there may have been photos released for confirmation of bin Laden in that raid and I missed it. Did they do that?

No, I was referring to the videos that were allegedly recovered in the compound that show a man alleged to be Bin Laden making speeches. Ah, I see. Thanks for clarifying.

Thanks Q. You've given me a lot to think about. As to the tape; I'm still not persuaded that that's him. In other videos, he just doesn't look that.. seriously, he looks a bit like a mouse in that one. It reminds me of the "Osama" that they allegedly killed in Pakistan. Also, I believe his skin tone is much darker in this one then in other videos of him. I know it’s been referred to as the ‘fat bin Laden’… but the ‘mouse bin Laden’ is a new one to me hehe. It’s a low resolution, grainy image taken in poor lighting. It doesn’t help that I cropped it from YouTube either - my fault Here is a bett... [More]

I’m not sure if you are referring only to the specific speculations mentioned in my last post, speculations in general or aiming at ‘false flag speculation vs. official theory speculation’. I was referring to all of the above actually, and I appreciate your taking the time to clarify in detail. I think you know my end/overall view of 9/11. I think I do as well, but I'm just as prone as anyone else to making assumptions from time to time. If we are to discuss in general, the speculation which makes most sense and/or fits most facts in any instance must carry the most weight. The degree of likel... [More]

Thank you for the kind words but… That isn't to say that I put myself fully behind every finding of NIST or the 911 Commission, just that the general gist of this seems the most plausible scenario and I haven't seen anything that conclusively suggests that 911 was a false flag operation perpetrated by any portion of the US government; be it a small committee comprised of key intelligence people and officials or something of a larger and broader scope. If there was some kind of documentation that backed this up like memos detailing a plan for 911 specifically, recordings of the people behind it... [More]

Apologies for my delay in responding but I have been preoccupied with other matters. I am trying to think of ways to respond so we are not going around in circles, or so that we can just understand each others position and agree we have come to different conclusions. The reality that materialised after 9/11 was entirely predictable, both the targets and mood of the public. Do you not see the groundwork was in place beforehand? Osama bin Laden, the alleged mastermind, had been banished from Saudi Arabia (his passport revoked) in 1994, had been provided sanctuary in Afghanistan from 1996, shared... [More]

Firstly, my issue with the Saudis being used is a more minor concern than a major concern (with respect to the war in Afghanistan) in that the plan as conceived allowed a possible risk that in the aftermath and trauma of 911 the public mood would be directed not only at the Afghans, Taliban and Al Qaeda but also possibly at one of the allies in the region. Given the almost unprecedented shock and trauma in the public it would be hard to be certain where exactly the desire for revenge from the public would lead. It may be that the risk was considered, evaluated and believed to be easily managab... [More]
