9/11 - Loose Change

    If you watch this film you can surely no longer have any doubt that 9/11 was an inside job, a well coordinated demolition . The question is what can be done about it now that we know the truth? Any suggestions? Perhaps you are already doing something? Or do you prefer to ignore it, and pretend that we dont know the truth?

      Loose change has already be debunked a non-reality, because it incorporates too many people with knowledge of the event. An event like that would be known to only a handful of people, if you were lucky, not 100+ which would have to be the case to cover it up. And, as leaky as the Government is about information, then it would have come out or someone would have stepped forward, to blow it wide open.

      Sorry to disappoint. Now ask me if I think the government is capable of doing it? Yes. By all means, I think the Government could massively orchestrate a corridinated attack, as in 9/11, but the repercussions if found out- would DESTROY America and it's foundation.

        Have you watched the video, all of it? There is simply too much evidence from too many sources to ignore. The govt. could do it and did. I was watching CNN when the towers went down and my first reaction was - oh that's exactly what happens in a demolition. I saw one of the guys who designed the building interviewed shortly afterwards. He said it was impossible for that building to go down in that way. The next day he changed his story.
        If you see building 7 go down, it is even more obvious.
        Do you honestly think the twin towers were not demolished? Nobody has ever explained how those buildings, over-designed to withstand far worse than a jumbo hitting them, somehow collapsed at free fall speed in 10 seconds.
        I realise that this is old news, but for everyone to forget about it and do nothing is exactly what they want.

          I didn't say I debunked it. I have a copy of the original Loose Change video, before it was aired on TV or became pubic. I downloaded with Ares peer-2-peer filesharing program. I have seen it. I was simply stating the case as far as public opinion, overall, is about it. It has been discredited. That's all the government had to do was discredited it.

          If you want my personal opinion, YES the government was behind it, simply by the way the towers fell alone. Building when hit by planes, don't fall that precisely.

          Yes, I do think that there is only a handful of people who do know about it and that's the President's Joint Chiefs. His personal military advisor council. And, it doesn't take too much to have undercover operatives to handle the wetwork. Those are a dime a dozen, considering the CIA will handle the assassination of that individuals when the mission is completed anyways, and the public wouldn't even know it happened.

          Come on people- wake up and see the sh!t being dealt. Yes, 9/11 was a tragic event, it was a wake up call for American, but has been spun into an unbelieveable weight of control of the citizenry.

    I believe that anybody gets rich off the blood of the innocent will pay dearly in one form or another. hmm Conspiracy theorists write up all sorts of scenarios but I really don't think anybody foresaw 9/11 as a reality. Gov't is doing something with appointing marshalls to various travel vehicles. People themselves also made the effort to overcome the terrorists @ expense of their own lives too and will continue to do so. People are not slaves to their gov't (least US and Canada) and can easily turn on them if they (gov't) gets out of control.

    The jury is out, and will probably never come back in.
    However, it does strike me as a little "odd" that they found the hijackers' ID's and passports in the rubble of the WTC buildings, on the ground, lying around that New York City block -- must have been pretty fireproof -- not to mention kudos to the sharp-eyed investigators who found them... just sayin'

    Loose change is a great video that really makes people wonder. I too think the 9/11 attack was planned by the U.S goverment becasue of this video. I really don't know what people can do next now that we have seen the video and convinced ourselves that it was in fact an inside job. I guess that is where we stop, I mean what can we really do? Over take the goverment or sue to United States goverment?

      In my opinion, forget about bringing anyone to justice. It won't happen. Instead concentate on finding out the truth, and spreading the word.
      Tell everyone about it. Everyone, and I mean everyone should watch the 9/11 video or one of the many others available.
      Then ask questions. What else are they up to? What is their real agenda? Who is really behind all this?
      Switch off CNN, Fox and other mainstream media. Educate yourself via the Internet.

      No-one likes to be lied to and manipulated. When enough people become aware of what is really going on here; when there is a critical mass of people who refuse to accept the lies and manipulation, things can begin to change.
      If everyone rolls their eyes and goes back to their game show, popcorn and hotdogs, we are all doomed. If everyone says “There is nothing that I can do about it”, then there will be much worse to come.
      We need to spread awareness of what is happening and refuse to accept things which we know deep down inside are not right.

        sanny,

        the challenge, as you know, is in getting the critical mass of people organized.  at this point in time, it's not an easy task.  too much materialism.

        but that's changing.  americans could care less about their rights being taken away.  however, wait until those material possessions start flying out the window.  then we'll have a bit of hell raising. 

        of course, by then it will be too late.

    There are entities that do not have leaks ever.  The Council of Foreign Relations the Bilderbergers etc...  Going off subject a bit I have seen videos about the Oklahoma city bombing.  On the day of the bombing the authorities claimed to have found two other bombs bigger than the one that was detonated.  I never heard another word about these bombs   The debris from the explosion appears to have been blown out from within the building.  Very curious?

      LOL. 

      After my last comment maybe no one will ever take me seriously again.  But I wanted to add that Pgrundy has an excellent hub on another conspiracy theory movie called Zeitgeist - her hub is called "the devil you know and the devil you don't".  Seriously.  Check it out.

      Conspiracy theories are dangerous.  But looking for the truth is not.  So I'm in the middle - I don't claim to know anything one way or the other.

  11. William R. Wilson profile image60

    I think it's perfectly reasonable to think that 9/11 could have happened either through incompetence or criminal negligence (as in, "let's just let these guys get away and pull off their attack so we can go to war"). 

    But it's too hard for me to believe that

    1. thousands of pounds of explosives were transported to, carried into, and planted inside the WTC, on each floor, covertly, while the 50,000 some odd people who worked there never noticed anything.  I mean, come on people. 

    Besides, who did all the planting?  Why haven't they come out and said anything? 

    The official story about the collapse, that it was caused by the plane's impact, makes much more sense.

    2.  that the hijackings never happened, all the people who supposedly died were actually offloaded at a remote location, that the pentagon was hit by a missile and not a plain, etc.

    That said, there's enough weird things surrounding 9/11 to make me wonder. The collapse of WTC 7, the made-for-propaganda tone of the flight 93 story, the military exercises that happened the same day and kept jets from being scrambled, supposed warning calls to various people telling them not to fly that day...

    I subscribe to Occam's razor - the simplest theory is the one you go with.

    There was a big coincidence in Britain during their bus and subway bombings 7/7.  The British were also conducting exercises on what to do if the subways and buses were bombed on the same day that bombs were actually detonated.  Some of the first responders were confused when they got the bombing reports as they thought it was part of the exercise.

    1. William R. Wilson profile image60
      William R. Wilsonposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      A simple, non-conspiracy answer to this could be that Al Qaeda knew that these things were going on and scheduled their attacks for these days.  What better day to do it?

  13. Arthur Fontes profile image88
    Arthur Fontesposted 7 years ago

    That would be a reasonable explanation which would mean that Al Qaeda has contacts in both the US and English government.  Which would mean that people in both governments were part of the plot to kill civilians.  Maybe not the entire government is involved just the terrorists who have infiltrated both governments to secure training schedules for military and police.

    Possible??

    1. William R. Wilson profile image60
      William R. Wilsonposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      More likely that they had a sympathizer or friend who worked as a paramedic in the British case. 

      As for the NORAD exercises on 9/11, that's a little scarier but I don't know if those exercises are public knowledge or not.  And, it doesn't have to be someone in our government, it could very well have been someone from, say, Pakistan's intelligence service.

        My biggest question concerning 9/11 is building 7 collapsing.  It does not make sense that a building like that would just collapse.  That was the only skyscraper in history to crumble under fire. well there were two others but they were hit by planes.

    crossing the rubicon lays out the groundwork on this event rather thoroughly, for those willing to take the time to read it with an open mind.

    chapter 14 does a nice job describing stock market activities the day before the attack as well as the week before the attack. 

    chapters 18-21 provide even more to ponder. 

    but then again, so does the whole book.

    even though it was published six years ago, it also offers up why we have a current US force in afghanistan of 189,000, not the reported 68,000.

      I did watch part of the Obama deception but turned it off.  I looked into the claim the Obama worked for Henry Kissinger immediately after he got out of college - total B.S. 

      Jones is no better than Glenn Beck in my book.  I kind of liked him when he was hacking on Bush and Co but even then I never took him seriously.

    I don't know who orchestrated 9/11, but I know with 100% certainty that our government lied to us about what happened to the Pentagon and the "plane crash" in Pennsylvania. I also know there are a lot of unaswered questions about WTC building 7, as well as what brought down the Twin Towers. If anyone's interested, I have a pretty thorough hub debunking the government's claims about flight 93 in Pennsylvania.

    I also believe 9/11 was an inside job not done by Al-Quida. They used that as a reason to go to the middle east and start war there. If you look at the pentagon, you can tell that a plane didn't crash it. The hole wasn't even big enough. Than how quick the towers fell, and people that were on ground level heard explosions, so it wasn't the planes that sent the towers down in less then 10 seconds. Who knows what we can do to bring justice to those that were behind it, because we still don't know who was...

    I don't feel that I know enough about this incident to have a clear opinion, one way or the other. All the 'historical sources' are biased and I can't say that I feel confident that anyone is giving me the truth, the whole truth and nothing but....

    What I find interesting is the level of distrust that now appears to exist between the people of the US and their government.

    All relationships are built on trust.

    The relationship between the people of the US and their government looks like it is breaking down.

    If one person breaks a law and the rest follow it, it is not difficult for that one person to be arrested. If 99 people break a law and only one person follows it, for practical purposes, the law ceases to exist.

    Everone has to be very careful. If trust in the government continues to decline, unless the government is replaced by either another government that people do trust, or another form of leadership, society will become truly chaotic.

      9/11 was an obvious inside job, however it could have been done by Mossad on behalf of the CIA in order to keep it at arms length, and add denyability IF discovered bang to rights, besides which Mossad are past masters at setting up Arabs to do their bidding...

      What is amazing is that this and many other acts against the people have been simply accepted by a docile public, sent to slumber land by fluoride and chlorine in the water, processed food with MSG and Aspartame and 24/7 Sports coverage on satellite.

      It's true that believing conspiracy theories does mean abandoning one's comfort zone and stretching the brain to accommodate ideas that it would rather resist.  That's not to say of course that it requires more intelligence - not at all, but it does require pushing oneself.  If people are willing to listen to conspiracy theories a lot depends on their own situation - a person who firmly believes that there are no secrets or hidden agendas amongst people of power really has no need to look into conspiracy theories, but anyone who does have doubts ought to examine them - gradually.  Only then will it become clear why governments are getting away with criminal actions. The truth is hard to swallow but in the long run it's better for us.  And hopefully will set us free (one day)smile

    Perhaps it's better to get away from the conspiracy aspect and focus on the following scenario: that the US government knew something like 9/11 was going to happen some day, and that it was therefore prepared - with the help of people like Tony Blair - to make maximum political capital out of it when it did happen.

    The trouble with conspiracy theory is that none of us has the all the raw information needed to establish the truth - we can only speculate.
