Unfortunately it's not just a few gullible net nerds who believe the conspiracy theories.
There are very many Arabs in Syria, Egypt, Jordan, North Africa and all over the Middle East who refuse to believe it was anything but a Jewish plot, supported by the American government.

^ But what else is new, most people in that part of the world have had it in for the Jews for millennia (look at the situation in Egypt just now). Again, it's just twisting things to suit them.

If they somehow were there's no way in this day and age that they could keep it covered up. Al qaeda never said the US were behind it, if anything if they did it would cause more harm/panic. The only people who think that are the mentals who read a few websites and think they're true. Ridiculous
Al Qaeda planned the whole thing but Im going to get shoot down for saying this but i do think some in the US goverment knew what was going to happen and turned a blind eye because the after effects of what happend suited there needs.

Seriously ? In this day and age, (eg wikileaks) there would easily be leaks of 'confidential' stuff even at the highest level, if there was someone who sent a message about 'let them do 9/11 as it'll make it easier to invade and get oil....' etc. Again if Al Quaeda actually denied it and said 'its your government behind it...' it would cause more havoc/chaos. We seem to nowadays live in a world where people shout 'conspiracy theory!' the second they dont agree with something. Also with the net anyone can now post their radical views and talk to more people with weird thoughts like that.

You seriously think the US government purposely knew about 9/11 but did nothing about it just to get oil etc ? Come on ! What next, the UK knew about 7/7 but let it happen for their means ? Perhaps Churchill knew about concentration camps but didnt do anything until later or something ?

I firmly believe the US didnt know about it, they wouldnt want 3000 people or so to die, as for conspiracies about the buildings, they can do all the 'tests' they want but no one knew what would happen if a huge airplane was flown full speed into a tower.

This is what bothers me - since 9/11 the terrorists have done nothing to compare - They are obviously well capable of getting a few nutters to strap a bomb to themselves and blow up trains, buses, tubes and buildings etc but ive always wondered how they could train people to fly a jumbo jet at 500+ MPH into such a small target with such accuracy?

They trained to fly in civilian flight schools in America. Just because they were repellent human beings, unfortunately it doesn't make them stupid or lacking in resources.

Shut up you thought criminal, the government loves you and would never lie. You're either with us or against us! :wink:

Seriously though, I don't think the conclusive proof is there yet but I don't think the possibility of some inside involvement can be ruled out either. The Neo-Con PENAC "new pearl harbour" remark certainly indicates motive.

For a lot of people it boils down to "the government would never do that", but governments have done atrocious things all through history. No doubt any conspirators would have rationalised a sacrifice was necessary for the "greater good", for which pretty much anything can be justified by some twisted people.

As none of us know for sure what happened I don't see the harm in keeping an open mind, especially as blindly trusting the government is as dangerous as any perceived outside threat, if not more so. It's certainly fair to suggest that the tragedy has been crassly capitalised on, leaving a legacy of profit instead of peace.
