    Conspiracy theories seem to fester whenever there is a lack of proportionality between the perpetrator and the import of his dirty deed. Thus, President Kennedy being shot to death by an insignificant nut with a gun gives rise to numerous fantasies to pump up causations.

    The criminal acts of 9/11/01 continued to inflict damage on the US long after the debris had been cleared. The Iraq fiasco, the bungled nation-building gambit in Afghanistan, the diplomatic blight of Guantanamo, and cavalier attitude toward government violation of the individual's rights are only a part of the self-inflicted legacy.

    The illusion of formidability that resulted in such overreaction and ongoing harm was occasioned by a few berserkers getting lucky. They, no more than structural engineers, could have anticipated the consequences of their acts.

    So, some must embellish.

    It's not necessarily reliant on political leaning, but almost anyone who says 9/11 was an inside job is usually a progressive or an anarcho-libertarian.

    I try to not believe too much of anything. About all I can tell you is that 9/11 happened. After that it gets real murky and nobody seems to want to investigate. Bush gave us the "hear no evil, see no evil" 9/11 Commission. What a crock that was. I figured the fix might be in when the Commission told us that their job was not to investigate what happened, just to make recommendations to keep it from happening again.

    I don`t think it was an inside job but I believe the Bush administration knew it was coming and did nothing to prevent it.

    That would pretty much make it an inside job. Like most things that happened on Bush's watch, I believe he was out of the loop. And he (like Reagan) was very happy with "do what you have to do, just don't tell me about it."

    No. Because

    1. Massoud the Commander of the North Alliance was 2 day before 9/11 by Algerian Suicide Bombers killed.

    2. When you make an inside Job why to hell should the forged traces lead to Afghanistan(in Afghanistan you can nothing earn)... in an inside Job the trace would lead to Iraq the

    US collusion in the criminal attacks of 9/11/01 is a typical delusion of ideological extremists who espouse the crank notion that democratic government is an inherently evil institution that blithely lies, cheats, steals, and kills, and these nutters would shrink it into a shriveled, desiccated remnant like a Jivaroan tribesman would an enemy's head.

    I don't think it's a delusion. Either way, collusion or not, I'm just not as accepting as most people seem to be. No US collusion? Let ME do the investigation. It will be the first.

    I should be surprised that 13 nutjobs voted yes. I'm not. There's still people saying the U.S. government created AIDS to kill black people.

    What about people who usually love big Government, like the Canadian progressive who posted just a few posts above yours, but make an exception because of the Bush factor?

    If you watched the buildings fall you could clearly tell it was a "Planned Explosion" because the buildings fell straight down. This doesn't happen in fires (That's the story) even when the fire is fueled by jet fuel. Not to mention the ridiculous insurance plan that was taken out on the buildings a month before the event occurred.

    I think this is one of those things that no one will ever really know for sure. So people will just speculate about it indefinitely. I've definitely got some questions that weren't satisfactorily answered by the official explanation. But unlike a lot of tinfoil hat people, I don't immediately race to the conclusion that it must have been some kind of inside job because of that.

    I wasn't talking about Bush but his administration. They certainly had something to hide. Anyone who doesn't belive Condoleeza Rice was lying during the 911 commisission is living their own conspiracy theory. I don't believe the government was behind the attacks or demolished any of the buildings.

    I hope to hell it was an inside job... otherwise it means we have spent TRILLIONS of dollars creating and maintaining the worlds largest military force, national air defense system and secrete intelligence agency in the world... just to have it humiliated by a bunch of goat herding, cave hiding, uneducated, women oppressing, **********s living in a shamelessly ignorant backwards third world country! :-(

    If the government did create AIDS to kill black people, it killed a lot of white people, too. Bit I choose my conspiracy theories and US involvement in 9/11 is still open in my book. This country is rife with neocon America-seconders.

    I don't have any more to go on than 99.9% of the population but it wouldn't surprise me in the least to eventually hear that certain well-place people in the Bush administration held the door open for Mohammad Atta.

    The physics of the destruction of the twin towers must be explained with reasonably complete data.

    It is hysterically funny that "scientists" make a big deal of climate models that must simulate millions of cubic miles of atmosphere, and ocean and millions of square miles of land and sea area for decades into the future but we can't get a good simulation of two hours of the destruction of a skyscraper in 12 years.

    You meant the Democrat government. Democratic and Democrat have absolutely no connection. It's like the minority party calling themselves the Bolsheviks, the majority. Remember the card check bill that your president and your Congress promised to pass for the unions? How democratic was that?

    The Bush neocons obviously exploited the al Qaeda attacks of 9/11/01 as an excuse to push their scheme to invade Iraq, but there is no reason to believe they were complicit in them. The record shows that they had ignored al Qaeda entirely as they obsessed over Saddam until bin Laden got their attention.
