    then there was the BBC reporter talking about how a certain building (not sure which one) had collapsed before it had actually happened and the building could still be seen standing in the background
    Yes rueters made a mistake, which they admitted and apologised for.

    I still don't know why a conspiracy theory pops up after every major event, good or bad (landing on the moon etc etc etc).
    It's always some American with too much time on their hands, they find a crazy "specialist" in that area, and so thousands of people jump on the band-wagon...

    Not even the US government is stupid enough to kill 2500 of its own people, and no way are they clever enough to cover it up! (Have you seen Harold and Kumar 2?! :p: )

    Definatly not! Do you know how many people would have to actually know about this? It would have to go as low as the airport security to let these people through with their weapons. Not true! Guess you will be saying 7/7 bombings were an inside job too?

    Also, how did a plane manage to crash into the pentagon? That place is the heart of the American military. Is it not common sense that such a place would have some sort of defence? Maybe a few anti-aircraft guns? If this place had sum sort of defence why was it not used when the plane was approaching? Or maybe someone high up (Bush, Cheney ect) ordered for no action to be taken.
    what do you think?
    inside job or not?
    one clearly didn't...
    i saw the damage on the tv and it was nowhere near enough to have been a plane... ive alos been to see the pentagon itself, and the wall they built to cover up the damage looks far too conveniently constructed...
    when you consider that the pentagon has technology that can sense a mouse running across its car-park, something doesnt add up about a plane being able to crash into it without being noticed sooner...

    Im no expert on the subject but AFAIK the reason the planes werent shot down was because to do that they had to have permission from Bush, the air force cant just shoot down commercial airliners. It says something about it in the film United 93. Very good film, I suggest you watch it.

    Yes i quite agree with you but making this statemtent clearly shows you have not considered the politial benefits of killing 2500 of americas onw people, but adding to a know terrorist attack this can cause the public to belive that THEY NEED to GOVERNMENT for protection.

    so making that comment shows clearly that you have not considered or the benefits of terror within a nation clearly out of control.

    The american government couldnt keep the fact that Clinton had an affair a secret, never mind a huge plot to kill thousands of its own people.

    What's this obsession with an inside job? If you're a president who wants a major attack on US soil you have these options:
    1. Organise a thorough and coordinated demolition of a major landmarks with hundreds of explosive experts, blue-collar workers and planners etc. to keep silent. Do this all without anyone noticing and without anyone involved speaking out.
    2. Allow a currently planned terrorist attack to 'slip through the net'. It's not like there's a shortage to choose from at any one time - even back then. Ignore warnings of the attacks and keep the lower ranks working just enough to stop suspicions. Minimal organisation and silencing involved.

    I think it was incompetence rather than an outright malicious intent for such an attack (through planning or purposeful neglect), but inside job nonsense just makes no sense whether you think it's government caused or not. Those Loose Change idiots can go swivel.

    Do you honestly belive that 1000s of people would join together in complete secrecy to kill a couple of 1000 people.
    So they could start a war in Iraq?

    If they had wanted to, theyre are better ways they could of done it.

    yes, but what im saying is, surely they would have had some way of monitoring the no-fly zone above DC... especially seeing as aerial attacks had already taken place...

    bad timing definately. but what do you mean confusion? they knew exactly what they were saying. they got the namee of the building right, the location of the building and how it was goin to go down. they just happen to have jumped the gun

    Hmm sorry guys am a skeptic on this one, most conspiracies are stupid, but read this:
    there was another building that collapsed-building 5, it was not hit by a plane and was a distance from the twin towers.
    It was reported that this tower had collapsed by news reporters, but was seen in the same clip to still be standing.
    All other themes related to the conspiracy like the whole in the pentagon can be pushed to one side as no one could actually know the exact size of a hole etc.
    The merky bits lie within building 5 and how the twin towers fell.
    16% of American people believe 9/11 was an inside job.
    Once again i am skeptical.
