The problem with 9/11 conspiracy theorists is that they argue the wrong points. They get too much into the details. The fact is, the story we got about 9/11 from the government is a lie. There's no doubt in my mind. Does that mean I think the government did it? I can't say, because I don't know. I think some members of the government were involved, but it's hard to say who it could've been for sure.
But people who don't believe those conclusions want easy to understand and clear evidence. They don't want random confessions from people who may or may not be reliable. They don't want blurry photos from the scene. So Riddler, I appreciate what you're trying to do, but you should just use the heavy hitter evidence instead of this stuff. There's better things to use.
People still probably won't agree, but who knows..
I think the most clear cut evidence is this:
Go to youtube, open a video of a world trade center tower collapsing.
Then, in a separate web browser, go to youtube again and search "controlled demolition."
Then, sync up the two videos as to watch both buildings fall at the same time.
Note the similarities.
Then, open up a new controlled demolition video and do it again. And again. And again.
Until you realize that the WTC building fell the EXACT SAME WAY... as a building laced with dynamite on its structure does.
Then, watch this:
Go to 14 minutes and 40 seconds into the video, and watch.
If these clear cut, honest, to the point facts don't raise your suspicions about what happened on that day, then either one of two things are true: You're crazy, or I'm crazy. Because one of us is totally misinterpreting reality.
So I challenge a non-believer to follow the steps as I've laid them out. If you still disagree, fine. At least you gave it a shot.
On a somewhat separate note. In America, it's easy for us to be very biased when it comes to 9/11. Some of us are adamantly sure it's a government conspiracy, others are adamantly sure it wasn't. But what about in Europe?
Throughout the spring, and into this summer, a leading bestseller in France has not been some great work of French literature but a $17-dollar paperback called the "Horrifying Fraud."
The book casts doubt on the official version of the events of September 11, substituting an elaborate conspiracy concocted by America's military-industrial complex in order to increase U.S. military budgets.
It has sold more than 200,000 copies here -- a huge success in French terms --attracting interest from readers like Eduard Chabanon and Naoufal Lahlou who are sceptical about much of what they are learn from the news.
By the first anniversary of September 11 Meyssan hopes to have his book out in 18 countries, including the United States, although in America, he says, he is having to publish it himself because no mainstream publisher would take it on -- apparently out of fear of law suits.
Two years after the horrible events, it may surprise you to learn that many Germans believe a lot of crackpot nonsense about September 11, 2001. Recent reports in Newsweek, the Wall Street Journal, and other periodicals paint a disturbing picture. From Newsweek: "To get a sense of how deep mistrust of the United States runs in Germany, take a look at the bookshelves. Two years after September 11, German bookstores are flooded with such works as 'The CIA and September 11,' in which a former government minister, Andreas von Bülow, insinuates that the U.S. and Israeli intelligence services blew up the World Trade Center from the inside..." Why do many Germans and other Europeans swallow such disinformation?
A poll taken by World Public Opinion, a collaborative project of research centers in various countries managed by the Program on International Policy Attitudes at the University of Maryland, College Park, polled 16,063 people in 17 nations outside of the United States during the summer of 2008. They found that majorities in only 9 of the 17 countries believe Al Qaeda carried out the attacks.
% Of people poled who think US is behind the attacks:
Many more think Israel was behind the attack, and possibly in cahoots with the USA.
In September 2006 an Ipsos-Reid poll found that 22 percent of Canadians believe "the attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001, had nothing to do with Osama bin Laden and were actually a plot by influential Americans."
So as you see, it isn't just emotional or crazy American "kooks" who think 9/11 could've been a government conspiracy. Around the world there are huge amounts of people who feel the exact same way. Maybe that gives some perspective.
