    The biggest lie is the conspiracy theory industry itself - feeding impressionable, weak minds with fictitious deceit, detracting people from genuine issues that really matter.

    It's like UFOlogy - after all these years, you would have thought someone, somewhere would have come up with a bit more than a few blurry photos. No one can keep a secret, least of all governments (leaks are practically policy) and military intelligence is quite an oxymoron, yet there has never been a credible whistle blower who has ever come forward with any first-hand evidence to back-up these kinds of conspiracy claims - it's all in the hands of anti-government right wingers, religious fundamentalists of various faiths, and the militant left. Highly trustworthy sources, of course.

    There was a thread on this before, with a link to a good site which explains everything that the conspiracy theorists claim, quite simply. I'll have a look for it.

    Sorry but i think that email is a joke. Just because it circles an empty space in a picture doesnt mean the plane wasnt there? Look at ground zero, there was rubble everywhere, doesnt mean there were never two towers standing there.

    I don't normally listen to conspirancy thories however this one is very interesting. I think the most interesting fact is that the videos haven't been released. It there is probably nothing untoward about it, is interesting though.

    They have released the video from the pentagon showing the crash, they have also shown videos of the two planes crashing into the two towers so why haven'tthey shown these videos that would show the planes that hit the pentagon?

    Because they didnt get to them in time? They were put on the news instantly, but the pentagon one wasnt. Im sure if they could have, they would have stopped the others going out, but it was too late.

    Because it's the Pentagon, and they wouldn't want to reiterate possible lines of attack to make it even easier for new terrorist plots. Not releasing all of the sight lines of the attack just seems like the more prudent thing to do, as they aren't going to help the public learn anything new, but they could be used for ill purposes.

    For anyone to remind you of Bismarck would require said individual to be brilliant and witty with excellent taste in sports teams. Clearly, this girl would pale in comparison to our Bismarck.
