911- Twin Towers....What do you think?

Do you subscribe to the belief that the attack of the World Trade Center, Bldg 7, the Pentagon are all apart of a larger U.S. Government conspiracy? There are various facts that support the idea that this wasn't simply a terrorist attack. That these buildings did not simply fall from the impact of a Boeing 757. That there were explosives planted throughout the building and the buildings were brought down in a demolition fashion. What do you believe? Do you feel the need to question the attacks or do you completely stand by our government officials on their official 9/11 Commission Report released? Give me your thoughts!

The twin towers I can understand how they collapsed after I saw a program about the structural engineers who designed them. The Pentagon crash I can understand. What I can't understand is Building 7, next to the towers, collapsing. I havn't seen any program about that. I can only assume it collapsed after being overloaded with debris from the towers. I cannot believe any US government department would plan such an event for whatever reason, and when you demolish a building you do an awful lot of work before hand weakening the structure and that would be noticed by the tenants.

What you are not understanding is that or maybe you don't know...there was a blackout in the building beforehand where men came in with various equipment literally the day before the attack. This has been reported from those who were tenants in the building. So, how can you explain this? The structural egineers had built these buildings to withstand the impact of a boeing 757. So where does that leave us?

Well only that it takes weeks to set up a controlled demolition and the design for an aircraft hit did not assume full tanks. You are right, I don't know all the details but my gut feeling is that there was no conspiracy and that it was a straight terrorist arrack.

It was just a set-up. Even my 12 yeard knows that. Unfortunately, like many plans, they all botch. When will the Americans ever learn. Now they have messed up the Middle East. They messed up everywhere: Vietnam, Korea, Afghanistan, Somalia; even Pakistan. They prmote and dine with a military dictator for expedience. They are a bunch of hypocrites. Who votes for the US president, anyway? I find it quite interesting some of the men they vote in to lead that big and successful country.

I do feel the need to question not only the attacks, but also the reasons behind them, the explanation given by the government for what happened, and also to share everything I can with my family and friends. Too much shady business has gone on in our country from the get to - hello rich white guys that didn't want to pay their taxes are the entire reason we are a country! And those same rich white guys continue to dictate what we know and believe to be true. Eventually there will be a point when things can no longer be hidden and people will be allowed to know the truth, I just think that sadly by then this country will have seriously screwed itself past the point of no return. People knew what was going to happen on 9/11 and let it happen to facilitate their own wants and greed.

One of the main reasons the radical Islamist state publicly that they dis like us is that we are a country in moral decay as shown by the movies we produce and show around the world. many of those actos and Hollowood people are the same ones that are saying the US did the act. Are they trying to cover up so people wont look at the junk they are putting out?

there are so many theories on different happenings in US history...i even heard that Roosevelt KNEW that the Japanese were going to bomb Pearl Harbour, but allowed it to happen so he could get everyone on his side into ww2...

That is very true about Roosevelt, and it sure does make sense. Most US leaders have to find an excuse for their intended overzealous acts. They need to justify.

With almost every major news out let looking for something to bash President Bush, if there were even a hint of truth they would be all over it. Experts from around the world have studdied the disaster and all come to the same conclusion, it was caused by the planes and there were no internal preset explosions.

I'm a big fan of building implosions, love to watch them over and over again. I watched the Towers fall live. There were no set explosives visible, as they would have been if they were there. Whatever the U.S. government did or didn't know, or when, it did not perpetrate the 9/11 attacks. I must suppose it's easier for the conspiracy theorists to weave fantasy than face the cold, hard truth - we can't protect ourselves from terrorist attacks. Why not take all those inventive imaginations and put them to good use? Thinking up all the exotic ways the terrorists could come up with for the next attack would be a fine way to begin!

I completely agree! I think though that we should all look at our government leaders...because they may be the ones who are the terrorists.
