    Do you believe 9/11 was an inside job?

    I want to hear other people's opinion on this. I'm currently doing research for a personal project, and would love to hear people's opinion.

      How about facts and logic. If 3 WTC bldgs came down by controlled demolition (tons of iron microspheres in the dust; insufficient potential energy in the bldgs to do all the work), then it could only have been an inside job. Unless Martians...

      Well, the facts says Osama led terrorists flew planes into the building without the help of 'potential energy".

    It would be silly to think otherwise.  America is the most powerful country in the world (as they say in media) and you are telling me that some stupid idiots with a few days of flying experience hijack 3 plans on the same day and manage to fly it into a zone that is more secure than than Buckingham palace without triggering any alarms.  The armed jets guarding NYC are supposed to scramble within 25 secs of UFO flying over NYC and on that they don't.

    You might want to visit - http://www.911truth.org/ for more info.

    I can accept that the terrorists blowing up something small but to do t on that scale and leave so much silly clues around that they were identified so quickly after the incident is just to much out of hollywood movie and stinks of a scripted plan.

    That's just my view based on the info I have seen and after looking at the research done by - http://www.ae911truth.org/

    They can hide it as much as they like - but the truth will prevail and the story will be told maybe not now but in the decades to come future generations will find the truth.

    Good luck with finding the truth.

      Why would these so called explosives planted by the Gov't not just be blamed on the terrorists. Why bother covering them up with a risky airline attack that could go wrong. The theories, like most conspiracy theories defy the laws of science.

      Good pts, Zubair. Mazzy, some of the supposed hijackers who were supposedly killed contacted news media after 9/11 to say that they were still alive and had no part in it. Oops! So much for the government's version of "truth"

    If you're doing research on this topic let me suggest to you, that I am no engineer.  However one of my clients is a former NYFD employee who was quite high ranking at the time of 911.  He later did a large amount of work as an independent consultant for emergency preparation and still does.  We have discussed this at length on a few occassions.  He directed me to the NIST report which has done detailed reconstruction to the most minute aspect of the events from an enginnering standpoint.  The science behind this really makes many of the accusation of an inside job look ridiculous.  It is quite long and detailed.  And much of the engineering aspects had to be explained to me as I have no formal training in the field.  The report can be found here.

      lone77starposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      What is sad is that the NIST report has too many holes to be taken seriously. They finally admitted that WTC7 collapsed at free fall. They denied anyone ever saying anything about molten metal, but there were numerous witnesses "caught" on video.

    2. LandmarkWealth profile image78
      LandmarkWealthposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      That's not true.  I ran the report past my retired father in-law a construction engineer who helped build WTC from start to finish. He and his colleagues validated everything in it down to the vaporizing of glass So did the report by Popularmechanics

    3. lone77star profile image82
      lone77starposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      "That" meaning "what?" What's not true? Chief NIST scientists denied anyone saw molten metal. Check out the eyewitness testimony on YouTube -- firemen who saw it first hand.

      Not debunked, sorry. Still too many questions. Iron microspheres by the tons in the dust. Pools of previously molten iron in the basements. Hot spots weeks after 9/11 over 1000 degrees from satellite photos! Insufficient PE to do all the work.

    7. LandmarkWealth profile image78

      I will assume you didn't read the link since both of those accusations were easily explained by numerous studies.  While the only study that supports it was not peer reviewed and could not gain the support of Jones own engineering dept staff.

      I still don't see anything in here that was not explained already with a reasonable and probable scientific explanation by numerous independent non Gov studies.  In the world of Independent scientist, there is no serious standing for this view.

  6. lone77star profile image82
    lone77starposted 6 years ago

    I think it's very possible. In fact, the large amount of evidence points to an inside job.

    In October, 2000, Nick Rockefeller told the late Hollywood producer, Aaron Russo, that there would be a big event coming up soon which would give US Iraq and Afghanistan and that we would be chasing terrorists in caves, and that we would be conducting a never-ending war on terror. Interesting details. Mr. Russo didn't know what to make of it until the big event 11 months later led to an attack on those 2 countries.

    Several military officers really blew it on 9/11 in not protecting our air space from the hijackers and in not protecting the Pentagon. And yet every one of them was promoted after 9/11. VP Dick Cheney was aware of the airplane headed for the Pentagon 20 minutes out, 10 minutes out, 5 minutes. According to Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta, Cheney told one soldier that the "order still stands." But what order? If it was to shoot down planes off course and not responding, then they had their chance and blew it. If the order was to stand down, then why? They were on one of several drills that day with mock hijackings during the actual hijackings. Why then? Why were most of the jet fighters on the East Coast doing drills on the same day?

    Why did the government commit a felony by destroying crime scene evidence starting on 9/11 -- shipping WTC steel overseas as cheap scrap?

    Why did Bush block other investigations and drag his feet on a federal investigation for more than 400 days? Why did he underfund the investigation with far less than that used to investigation Clinton's sexual infidelities?

    WTC 1, 2 and 7 collapsed at near free-fall acceleration. The original Potential Energy (PE) of each bldg was used almost entirely for that acceleration. It takes far more PE to fall at near free-fall, completely pulverize all of the concrete in each bldg, bend or break all the previously undamaged steel beams in each bldg, eject massive pyroclastic clouds across all of Lower Manhattan, and heat up those clouds as felt by nearby witnesses. Each of these extras takes immense amounts of energy not available in the original gravitational potential.

    The fires were not hot enough to melt steel, and yet there were at least several tons of iron microspheres in the 9/11 dust. This indicates previously molten iron. These facts prove controlled demolition. Controlled demolition takes weeks of unfettered access which proves inside job.

    Plus much more!...

    Larry Silverstein had taken out insurance on his world trade towers to include "terrorist attack" just a short time before the towers were destroyed.

    Larry Silverstein and practically half his family all were well known to spend at least their mornings at the trade center towers every single business day.

    How LUCKY it was for Larry Silverstein and his family that they just happened to not be in those towers that fateful day!!!

    Perhaps the God of Israel just loves Larry Silverstein and his wonderful family - but I tend to doubt that the God of Israel loves the Silverstein clan any more than anyone else....incidentally, the wikipedia page about the man is rather short of information.  Also, the man plainly stated for all on national television how building seven was demolished with explosives....which should be obvious, as nothing hit building seven.

    No, I do think 9/11 was an inside job. If so does that mean Osama Bin Laden was an employee of the U.S. government. Our defenses were down. The intelligence community fumbled the ball and more attention was given to traditional military and terrorist targets.

    Conspiracy theories are really bothersome. They pop up years later. They can never be proved and the discussion of it accomplishes little.

    9/11 was a tragedy. I walked into my office right before the second tower was hit. We knew then it was no accident.

    9/11 was a terrorist attack against this country. If we stop believing that, we are going to make ourselves vulnerable to another such attack.

I dont however believe that there is some missing pieces to this puzzle because it is extremely hard to believe that the US let there guards down for that moment and didnt see this coming. Also there in no way as American people on that plane couldnt have come together and try to do more to take back control over the plane. They didnt have guns from what I understand just box cutters...there is strength in numbers but then again you just dont know it might have been to late to stop the plane once it was already so close to crashing into the building but for two plane to crash like that back to back it something fishy about that.

      You can use cell phones on airplanes, you are just not suppose to. As a plane fly lower, it can catch a cell town for a connection. Also, Blackberry Pin messages use another system. Finally, some planes have air phones.

      Airphones were not real back then. And the government claims the dude called from a cell phone. Cell phones do not work on airplanes, as the airplane machinery disrupts reception. It's all too obvious.

    7. LandmarkWealth profile image78
      LandmarkWealthposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      Airphones existed long before 9-11.  And cell phones work on planes.  The pilots just request you dont use them because they can potentially interfere with the planes operations.  I am sure that is lees of a concern in a hijacking.
