conspiracy theories are alive & wellSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Fri, 09/11/2009 - 12:54
IT'S BEEN eight years since the 9/11 attacks, and we still don't have answers to the questions that arose before and after the release of the 9/11 Commission Report.
It's still important to demand answers because of the ongoing bloodshed in Iraq and Afghanistan, the increasing hatred of the U.S. by Muslims all over the world, and the cost of the wars, none of which would be happening without 9/11.
Within hours after the attacks, the American public was handed a conspiracy theory, and two years later, the 9/11 Commission set out to prove it. However, equally or even more plausible conspiracy theories subsequently came to light.
Within very few days after the attacks, the FBI presented us with a list of the suspected hijackers, who, they said, had a history of suspected terrorism. If the FBI was able to identify these individuals so quickly as suspected terrorists, why couldn't they have taken bold steps earlier to prevent the attacks?
There are many facts about 9/11 that prompt questions begging to be answered, including:
1. U.S. and Danish scientists have found unignited aluminothermic explosive material in the dust that covered the lower part of Manhattan after the attacks, suggesting the role of explosives in the collapse of the towers.
2. At the time of the attacks, U.S. and Canadian joint military exercises were already under way in the air over Canada and elsewhere.
These annual exercises were normally held in October, but that year administration officials moved them up to 9/11.
The exercises had the effect of diverting fighter planes away from
their stations, making them unavailable to pursue the hijacked airliners.
3. When Rex Tomb, a spokesman for the FBI, was asked why there was no mention of 9/11 on Osama bin Laden's Most Wanted Web page, Tomb said, "The reason why 9/11 is not mentioned on Osama Bin Laden's Most Wanted page is because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11."
