What information do people have that make them think that 9/11 was an inside job by the government? I'm curious where people think of these ridiculous theories; are we all so pissed off at Bush that we start blaming the government for 9/11? What is this world coming to?

Iguess it depends who you are. Some people just need that kind of sick drama to something already dramatic enough. Some people just can't accept that sometimes bad things happen and they nelieve nearly everything is conspiricy or part of a grander consipricy. bush seems to be the target for most, with the exception of the new world order conspiricy, then EVERYONE is in on it. Bush has been blamed for: *9/11 *blowing up the levvys innew orleans *creating hurricane katrina through weather manipulation *creating the tsunami in a joint nuclear test with Israel The list goes on. Some people just have the need to believe things like this because it's easier than accepting that sometimes, terrible things in life just happen. I just went outside, and my tire was flat.....CURSE YOU BUSH!!!!

Well, there may be a "Bush bashing" segment of people who believe these theories. I think the majority of people who believe the crazy theories want to believe they're safe. They don't like the idea that the US got caught off-guard by 19 guys using primitive weapons, so they think there must have been a more sophisticated and organized effort behind the 9/11 attacks.

People hate Bush so much that they want to believe everything that is wrong with our country, and this world as a whole, are his fault. He has done nothing right and everything wrong. It's gotten so bad that I've turned it into a punchline. Now when we get an obnoxious patron at my job and a coworker complains I just tell them "I blame Bush for this." It gets a good laugh. The most ridiculous claim for me was on mylot when someone was telling me how Bush was an illiterate moron, yet in the same post told me how she believed he masterminded 9-11. When I explained, in detail, how an illiterate moron couldn't possibly mastermind such a conspiracy she proceeded to stalk every thread I posted in and lower my star while adding nasty comments to all my posts. I think people like that are just disturbed.

those ppl are just being ignorant and they just want to blame someone on done some research and I believe that its our gov. not one person but our gov. that is doing this to us; true there are some ppl that are doing there very best to help the citizens. I have some videos that you might want to watch and you can give me your opinion, but mainly you would have to do your own research and prove that is right or wrong its something that you would have to do for your self I wont post the links on this post but as soon as you say you would check them then I post about 3 or more links here for you to watch. SO DO YOU WANT THE LINKS?

There are a lot of people who believe in these conspiracy theories. Of course, it is nonsense. However, in Bush's case, his actions following Sept 11 have helped create a climate where conspiracy theories abound. Ie, we now know that only 2 days after the 9/11 attacks, he was looking to pin the blame on Iraq without having even obtained or commissioned an intelligence report to see if this backed up his 'gut reaction' that he believed Iraq had some hand in 9/11. Hence, some people then start a thinking that the US govt had some hand in 9/11, in order to create an excuse to attack Iraq. This is just an example how the conspiracy theory can take off. So no the US govt had nothing to do with 9/11. Of course not. Where I charge the US govt is cynically using that event to create a climate of fear and patriotic fervour which closed down rational debate in the US at that time (between 2001 to 2004, by which time doubts about the Iraq adventure started to make themselves heard). By closing down rational debate and labelling anyone who disagreed with him unpatriotic, the US got itself into a right fine mess (ie Iraq in particular).

I spent an obcene ammount of time and effort looking in to it all after the conspiricy theory started creeping out. I haven't seen anything new or revealing to this date either so, I discount it. I doubt there is any link you can put up thaqt hasn't already been hashed over or debunked. It's a very weakly put together and supportable theory that realies on a great deal of extapolation to even begin to try and come together.
