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."

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? [/quote] Not that I'm aware of; in fact, I believe the administration resolved not to release any pictures of the raid; honestly, I would actually be quite surprised if any pictures of the raid were even taken. No, I was referring to the videos that were that show a man alleged to be Bin Laden making speeches.

Ah, I see. Thanks for clarifying.

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 better one: - If you check you can see there are more known ‘Al Qaeda’ figures present in the video - they look darker than in other images too. For bin Laden himself, the features really depend which angle he’s at. Have you ever noticed how some ladies online (the ones obsessed with posting pictures of themselves on facebook or whatever) will take phot... [More]

I was referring to all of the above actually, and I appreciate your taking the time to clarify in detail. I think I do as well, but I'm just as prone as anyone else to making assumptions from time to time. This was the core reason for my question and I have come to realize that you strive to achieve an unbiased conclusion based on the available evidence. I didn't always believe this to be the case so I am very pleased to see that some of my earlier assumptions about your motives in these debates were incorrect. The more discussions I've had with you the more I've come to ... [More]

Thank you for the kind words but… The agents of CIA Alec Station deliberately blocking the FBI from investigating two terrorists known to be inside the United States and who would become the hijackers doesn’t suggest assistance? After head of the aforementioned CIA section held regular meetings with Bush and co. under whose short administration the FBI stated their bin Laden related investigations had become restricted. 9/11 would not have happened without that. How much more suggestive could it be? This is a real organisation and chain of command with infiltration, deception and war on reco... [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. 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 ...

So you think an attack planned by a rogue/exiled group of Saudis granted sanctuary and operational base by the Taliban in Afghanistan, could have led to the public ignoring the official line that Afghanistan not Saudi Arabia were the threat and demanding a war on latter country. And also that the Bush administration would have been forced to bow to this public pressure. Ok, I’ll leave it there. Do I believe the case for the Iraq war was compelling? No I don’t. It was however compelling enough for the large majority of American citizens, including a large proportion who believed Iraq was co... [More]
