    Thought I would make a thread on this.

    Now firstly, I don't necessarily believe it was an inside job. So I don't consider myself a 'conspiracy theorist'. The poll is just to see what others think.

    I find some of the inconsistencies and contrary evidence/circumstances to the official government line very interesting. Perhaps small information has been withheld or changed to change the way we see it or react to it.

    Here is loose change (a video highlighting said inconsistencies) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7E3oIbO0AWE

    Now it would be ignorant of me or anyone to take this as gospel. But there are some good points which don't seem to be answered.

    Any theories or explanations welcome.

    I know hardly anything of worth about it, but the manner in which the towers fell down so straight always perplexed me.

    I saw a documentary on National Geographic about this and people who were called 'truthers' had their theories disproved one by one and they still somehow kept their faith that it was a conspiracy.

    Not enough evidence to say it was a conspiracy so I'm going to stick with the terrorists.

    You really think its hard to make up the 'facts' that these concpiracy theorist make up?

    Even if the governent did do it, just think of how many people would be needed to be involved, you think they all would want 3,000 people dead?, think how would you be able to live with knowing that you killed 3,000 innocent people.

    Everyone loves a good conspiracy theory, however they are almost always complete bull***t. The 9/11 conpiracy theory is no different, I'm convinced it was a terrorist attack and that the US government had nothing to do with it.

    I've never been one for conspiracy theories. For a start I don't see what the government would gain from an inside job, it makes no sense.

    The video is quite scary though, it does make you wonder

    Out of context, that is such lulz.

    It would be incredibly difficult for a govenment to organize something like that on a massive scale without it getting out. Also how would they be able to get someone to fly themselves into a building. Saying that they were missiles is ridiculous what would they do with the actual passengers. Saying that they were negligent is fair as they had a lot of warnings but saying that they organized it is a joke.

    Well firstly if some of these facts are 'made up' please show me which ones are wrong. Like I said it would be ignorant of me to assume they are all correct but it isn't easy to google hours of material looking for incorrect facts. Which ones are wrong?

    And secondly, Hitler lived with killing 6,000,000 people. OK he killed himself, but not due to guilt, more because he didn't want to get caught. Now i'm not comparing the Bush administration to that of Hitler but people throughout history have killed many and felt little remorse.

    Furthermore, not that many people would be needed. Just the top brass of the government (no more than 30 people) and a few fanatical idiots prepared to crash a plane into a building as well as some bomb experts.

    Again, this isn't my view. But I think it could logistically be possible.

    How is this discussion in any way disrespecting the victims of 9/11?

    hm, i dont honestly know because i have never looked in any great depth into each argument for and against, until then i will base my judgement on the fact that i hope a government could never kill so many of its own people and that it would possibly be difficult to get people to hijack the plane and then kill themselves(although its possible soem us person could be in contact with suicide bombers to give them some help i guess)
    as it is i dont think anyone will ever learn the truth, not unless Wikileaks has something interesting on it...
    New question, what would happen to america if it was revealed that 9/11 was from the us government?

    As a quick note yes.

    I have nothing but sympathy for the victims of 9/11. Planned or terrorist attacks innocent lives were definitely lost which is awful.

    The USA gets comparatively little oil/petroleum from Iraq. 422,000 barrels a month compared to 3,000,000 from Canada & Nigeria.
