    It is pretty interesting that the Bush Family and the Bin Ladens were semi close and that Osama was never caught due to the "distraction" of the Iraq war. But who knows?

    Loose Change is a terrible movie and focuses on the more absurd theories of what happened instead of the more plausible.

    I'm not saying people should blindly believe everything they're told (though, in the information age, people pretty much get routinely told every possible interpretation of every occurrence.)
    I'm just saying it's not like any of the 9/11 Conspiracy theories are more plausible than the general story we've been told (if there even is one singular "general story".)
    Furthermore, I love the fucking backseat steel engineers talking about how laughable it is that a building hit by a fucking plane fell in the manner it did. I didn't realize you could learn how steel responds to extreme trauma by playing Wii and jerking off.

    Super serious business.

    I figured so. I was just curious. It would have been neat if you constructed an argument to support your claim.

    as an outside observer, someone who's opinion isn't filtered by an allegiance to the nation that was attacked, and as someone who has carefully reviewed all the independent evidence, I can confidently say that

    Conspiracy theories are created by people who feel that this chaotic world is out of their control. They need a power outside of, and greater than themselves (the evil government), to bring order and understanding of the events taking place around them. With this conspiracy frame work, they begin to fill in the missing pieces with BELIFE in unseen powers. It's a lot like religion and belife in the bible. And they defend their conspiracy with religious ferver.

    Human history is rife with stories of actual conspiracies with actual conspirators doing actual real things. Somehow, though, American history has been immune.

    I think the more plausible* story on 9/11 is that Bush** knew it was coming and let it happen on purpose. The biggest defense force in the history of the planet and we can't guard our own coastline? Fighter jets scrambled... 15 minutes too late.

    (I do not accept that last paragraph as fact, more like a realistic possibility. The Pearl Harbor parallels*** are there.)

    * - more plausible than the rigged explosives, UFOs, and all that other crap

    ** - or rather, Cheney and Rumsfeld.

    *** - that whole thing about how FDR desperately wanted an excuse to enter the war to defeat Hitler, and so stopped selling oil to Japan (considered a reasonable provocation to war at that time), knew or at least had an inkling Pearl Harbor was coming, refused to see the Japanese ambassador, etc. I do not know how factual that theory is either, but again it seems plausible, esp. given the economic state of the country at the time.

    Also does anyone actually believe the jet in Pennsylvania just crashed into the countryside there? or the whole "Let's roll" bit?

    I don't know why that's so unbelievable.

    What did he say?

    Even if that whole scenario was false I still find it plausible.

    some speech he said something like "the one we shot down in Pennsylvania" then later retracted the remark. It was on the news back in the day.

    I have heard those theories too, I always wonder why the Government would hide that they shot down one of the planes? I would think Bush and Co would be very proud to have done something right. I just don't get the motive behind it.
