9/11 Collection

Form Your Own Opinion

I don't pretend to know who was responsible for 9/11. However, I was skeptical of the official story as soon as it came out, and have remained so ever since. It seemed to me that whoever could pull off an operation of that precision and sophistication wouldn't let the whole thing depend on trainees who hadn't completed basic pilot training, and then leave a trail of clues lying around that would make a schoolboy detective story look amateurish . There's a huge amount of material out there advancing just about every kind of theory that human imagination is capable of devising, and trying to keep up with it could easily become a full-time occupation for anyone so inclined.

A couple of sites that have done much of the work of collecting together links to what's out there are:

perso.wanadoo.fr/jpdesm/pentagon/investigation77.htm

www.911proof.com/

I don't claim these to be comprehensive in any way--simply ones that I've come across. If anyone has more that they think should be added, by all means let me know.

A List of the Top 500 question outstanding is at:

www.rense.com/general24/t500.htm

But as a caution, there's a reminder at www.rense.com/general57/911.htm that those claiming to stand for "truth" are not always what they seem and can have other agendas. (I know some of these posting are dated, but so what? Many who haven't managed to keep abreast of it all might appreciate some recapitulation all the more.)

For anyone muttering "conspiracy theories," I find that a tiresomely over-used phrase, designed to put opponents on the defensive by association and avoid having to present a case. A theory should be rejected on the ground of being clearly preposterous (on which, of course, opinions will vary) or because the evidence tells against it, not because someone has hung a label on it.

Going back to the whodunnit aspect, it appears that at least 9 of the people that the official line says dunnit are still walking around alive and well--see, for example www.welfarestate.com/911 I believe that five or so were identified by investigators from London's BBC.

If this is indeed the case, then the logic of the situation would appear to run somewhere along the lines of:

The Arabs that we were told did it, didn't do it.

Therefore somebody else did it

And if the schoolboy-detective-story clues were deliberate, it presumably follows that whoever did do it wants us to think it was Arabs.

Where it goes from there, I'm not sure. But it would certainly seem that we are a long way from being told all that there is to know.
