    Was 9/11 an Inside job?

    With the 10 year anniversary of one of the worst attacks on American soil and with very little answers as to how 19 hijacker can take over 4 commercial airliners and make NORAD stand down from sending jets to intercept the planes.  My question is do you think 9/11 was an inside job?

    Absolutely without a doubt. I don't know to what degree any government officials were involved, but the evidence is staggering. And don't forget that several of those 19 hijackers are actually still alive. The 9/11 Commission Report leaves out a lot of significant evidence. I used to think that they were just covering up their mistake because they were embarassed. After serving in the military and doing my own research, it's obvious that some members of the government were involved. The most substantial evidence points to Dick Cheney at the very least. The sad truth is that it is much easier for people to believe the official story, lest they have to consider the alternative.

    With all the conspiracies, the only motive was they were trying to make the Taliban & Al Qaeda seem more powerful and more strong then the America public believed them to be. If so, they've done well - people are still scared in case an "anniversary" attack happens, which is clearly unlikely to impossible, considering new security and heightened security for the day.   

    The weird thing is, in Vietnam the American's pulled out, due to public anger at the war - and how they were fighting in Vietnam for no real reason. Could this have been why the towers was an inside job? Did the American Government not want another civil up-rise over the war?

    Food for though. That's my only real conclusion as to why they'd bomb two of the largest buildings in the world - which cost billions to re-create.

    yes it was 100% an inside job. have a look at the following youtube video


    About 303 times as many people have been killed in Afghanistan and Iraq than in the ghastly attacks of September 11, 2001. Justified?

    I don't think the government was directly involved at all. My proof?--if the government were behind this, they would have wanted to garner greater sympathy and less introspection from the masses by choosing more seemingly-innocent targets. The foreign fighters who attacked on 9/11 attacked our military headquarters and financial symbol of the western powers. That tells you something of their motives. They wanted to attack the centres of US financial and military hegemony. However, I do think the government could have done something to prevent this attack (not greater security at airports, by the way!) I also think the government acted too slowly to respond, because the President was too dumb to understand how to use his authority in wartime scenarios. Not to change the subject, but this is a sad reality of the office of the modern presidency. The guys getting elected are bred to win elections, not govern a nation. That's why they have staffs of over 2,000 people, not including their cabinet. A clever presidential staff governs the nation. When in private, presidents today are very cynical and are always cracking wise jokes. The act of making jokes all the time is often a confession of futility. For a split second on 9/11 and during Hurricane Ketrina, the President had the spotlight him and had no idea how to exercise his power. He looked around for his handlers to tell him what to do next. He wanted options placed in front of him--anything. He had no idea what he could do.

    I believe with all my heart that it was an inside job. There is just way too much evidence to think otherwise. Some great answers already guys. Keep it up.

    I wish people would stop being so gullible and stop falling for all of the conspiracy theories.  Our government didn't have anything to do with it and quite offensive that any American Citizen would think that their own country did have anything to do with it.  I have no way of knowing if any of the responses here were from Americans or not but no matter what country they are from, it is clear that they are uninformed, and very gullible.

    Nine-Eleven needs an investigation, perhaps from an international body of some kind. We're too close to it here in America, I think. The wound to the nation is still a bit raw, and we need to have an objective inquiry.

    There are just so many questions remaining, as well as unsatisfying answers remaining. Its hard, in this country, to even raise questions without being called a "conspiracy theorist," and so forth.

    Perhaps this is something that an investigative body of the U.N. (if they had one) could look into.
