The Top 40 Reasons To Doubt The Official Story Of 9/11


1) AWOL Chain of Command
a. It is well documented that the officials topping the chain of command for response to a domestic attack - George W. Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, Richard Myers, Montague Winfield - all found reason to do something else during the actual attacks, other than assuming their duties as decision-makers.
b. Who was actually in charge? Dick Cheney, Richard Clarke, Norman Mineta and the 9/11 Commission directly conflict in their accounts of top-level response to the unfolding events, such that several (or all) of them must be lying.

2) Air Defense Failures
a. The US air defense system failed to follow standard procedures for responding to diverted passenger flights.
b. Timelines: The various responsible agencies - NORAD, FAA, Pentagon, USAF, as well as the 9/11 Commission - gave radically different explanations for the failure (in some cases upheld for years), such that several officials must have lied; but none were held accountable.
c. Was there an air defense standdown?

3) Pentagon Strike
How was it possible the Pentagon was hit 1 hour and 20 minutes after the attacks began? Why was there no response from Andrews Air Force Base, just 10 miles away and home to Air National Guard units charged with defending the skies above the nation''s capital? How did Hani Hanjour, a man who failed as a Cessna pilot on his first flight in a Boeing, execute a difficult aerobatic maneuver to strike the Pentagon? Why did the attack strike the just-renovated side, which was largely empty and opposite from the high command?

4) Wargames
a. US military and other authorities planned or actually rehearsed defensive response to all elements of the 9/11 scenario during the year prior to the attack - including multiple hijackings, suicide crashbombings, and a strike on the Pentagon.
b. The multiple military wargames planned long in advance and held on the morning of September 11th included scenarios of a domestic air crisis, a plane crashing into a government building, and a large-scale emergency in New York. If this was only an incredible series of coincidences, why did the official investigations avoid the issue? There is evidence that the wargames created confusion as to whether the unfolding events were "real world or exercise." Did wargames serve as the cover for air defense sabotage, and/or the execution of an "inside job"?

5) Flight 93
Did the Shanksville crash occur at 10:06 (according to a seismic report) or 10:03 (according to the 9/11 Commission)? Does the Commission wish to hide what happened in the last three minutes of the flight, and if so, why? Was Flight 93 shot down, as indicated by the scattering of debris over a trail of several miles?


6) Did cell phones work at 30,000 feet in 2001? How many hijackings were attempted? How many flights were diverted?

7) Demolition Hypothesis
What caused the collapse of a third skyscraper, WTC 7, which was not hit by a plane? Were the Twin Towers and WTC 7 brought down by explosives? (See "The Case for Demolitions," the websites and, and the influential article by physicist Steven Jones. See also items no. 16 and 24, below.)


8) What did officials know? How did they know it?
a. Multiple allied foreign agencies informed the US government of a coming attack in detail, including the manner and likely targets of the attack, the name of the operation (the "Big Wedding"), and the names of certain men later identified as being among the perpetrators.
b. Various individuals came into possession of specific advance knowledge, and some of them tried to warn the US prior to September 11th.
c. Certain prominent persons received warnings not to fly on the week or on the day of September 11th.

9) Able Danger, Plus - Surveillance of Alleged Hijackers
a. The men identified as the 9/11 ringleaders were under surveillance for years beforehand, on the suspicion they were terrorists, by a variety of US and allied authorities - including the CIA, the US military''s "Able Danger" program, the German authorities, Israeli intelligence and others.
b. Two of the alleged ringleaders who were known to be under surveillance by the CIA also lived with an FBI asset in San Diego, but this is supposed to be yet another coincidence.

10) Obstruction of FBI Investigations prior to 9/11
A group of FBI officials in New York systematically suppressed field investigations of potential terrorists that might have uncovered the alleged hijackers - as the Moussaoui case once again showed. The stories of Sibel Edmonds, Robert Wright, Coleen Rowley and Harry Samit, the "Phoenix Memo," David Schippers, the 199i orders restricting investigations, the Bush administration''s order to back off the Bin Ladin family, the reaction to the "Bojinka" plot, and John O''Neil do not, when considered in sum, indicate mere incompetence, but high-level corruption and protection of criminal networks, including the network of the alleged 9/11 conspirators. (Nearly all of these examples were omitted from or relegated to fleeting footnotes in The 9/11 Commission Report.)

The Most Important Event Of Our Lifetimes

If it turns out to be a false flag, wow would that ever turn the world on its ear. THAT would certainly shock people into waking up. But I think it's too much "cognitive dissonance" for people to take. I think people need to learn the smaller things first (e.g. the fed and its money printing) and fall down the rabbit hole that way before they can handle the idea of false flag terrorism in this country.

Only one piece of evidence is needed

How does the top 1/10th of a mass which would have been the lightest portion of the building crush the bottom 9/10th of that mass at near free fall speed and not defy the laws of physics? If someone could even recreate this with some sort of scale demonstration I would change my mind. Show me 1 saltine cracker falling from above and crushing 9, show me 1 coke can falling from above and crushing 9.

fireant's picture

The scale of collapse would be more like an apple

smashing through the 9 crackers below. Your analogy is false, and throws many off course. The design of the buildings (large span) is key to understanding, as well as careful study of collapse video. In a nutshell, very large slabs of steel perimeter wall sliced and smashed down through the tower where the only resistance was lightweight trussed floors; no vertical support. Initiation indeed occurred at the vertical structural areas of core columns and perimeter walls, but after that, collapse occurred between those two structural components. The lightweight floors spanning 60 feet were no match for the mass coming down upon them. Note that substantial portions of both cores were standing after everything else collapsed, though briefly.

Undo what Wilson did

Also note that the South

Also note that the South Tower that was hit at a lower level than the North Tower came down first because more weight was bearing on the damaged area.


One day well all realize

I side

with the truthers more. I try to convince my older ones in my family but they refuse to listen. The whole 9/11 thing just doesn't work when I try to wake up people. I some times bring up to the truthers that what if this really did happen. Our government saw it coming and did nothing to prevent it. I also find that the one plane that got took down was headed to the white house. My guess is this they shot the plane down. If that is true, this means they are willing to protect them selves but not the people. But I still believe bringing up this issue doesn't work on many.

Flight 93 was likely headed to WTC 7.

A few co-conspirators were in the WH bunker.

What Happened to the Bodies?

Nearly 3,000 human beings lost their life on that day in New York City and on the aircraft involved in the attacks yet only 10% whole bodies were recovered (see: ). How could this have occurred?

Flight 93 that crashed in Pennsylvania had 44 people aboard and according to this article (see:, all of the remains were too decimated to identify without the use of DNA sampling. Eric Peterson, an eye witness to the plane going down, rushed to the crash site and said, “he saw no bodies” (see: ). How can there be no whole bodies or body parts?

There have been many notable passenger jet aircraft crashes where bodies were found when the plane impacted the ground.

In 1991 Lauda Air Flight 004, a Boeing 767 disintegrated at 4000 feet and crashed in Thailand
(see: ) killing all 213 passengers. However there were whole bodies found including Thomas Welch, the pilot of the plane still strapped to his cockpit seat!

In 2005 Helios Airways Flight 522, a Boeing 737 crashed from an altitude of over 34,000 feet (see: ) killing all 115 passengers. Autopsies revealed that all the passengers were alive at the time of impact. The body of the flight attendant who attempted to save the plane when the pilot and co-pilot were rendered unconscious was found near the cockpit area. Again, bodies were found!

It is clear the government of the United States murdered American citizens on 9/11 to further some nefarious agenda. What happened on that day has be investigated again. This cover up must be exposed and these evil perpetrators punished for their crimes against the country.

I only have one question

Who paid for the destruction of the crime scene on 9-12?

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Oh I am sure you and I as the taxpayer did, Fishy.


Norfolk, VA

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

Good stuff here, but why oh

Good stuff here, but why oh why did you leave out info about Mossad agents being arrested in NYC on 9/11? These "dancing Israelis" just happened to be spotted by many witnesses celebrating the tower collapses. When they were arrested, they were driving in two different vans, one packed with explosives, the other with traces of explosives. They failed lie detector tests. They were sent back to Israel, much to the objection of lower level FBI officials by Michael Chertoff, the son of hard core Zionist terrorists. I swear, the fear of being called "anti Semitic" is just too much for some of you. If you are talking about 9/11, and you AREN'T talking about Israel, then you aren't telling the whole story.

Good point...

That should be added and it should now be titled 41 REASONS.

We LOOOVE to include the Israelis in our false flag ops.

Like the attack on the USS Liberty:

(What are allies for, right?)

What would the Founders do?

Wouldn't have

(A DP Repost) been sufficient?

With the nonsensical down votes

I learned a very long time ago, that most people don't care if you live or die.. they just don't want to be the one that kills ya.

People must know the truth! The original thread was old & Dead

as in no comment bar.
Also dead thread rhymes.

is pretty handy if you know how to use it. Also, it is not a "DP Original" if you didn't author it yourself. That's probably why people mistakenly thought you wrote it.

3) "Do not post the ENTIRE text of articles from other sites. This is copyright infringement, and could get you, me, and this site in trouble. (In fact, it already has!) Feel free to post a short intro, and then a link to the original article. Understanding fair use would be wise, also."

Yes, no, yes, maybe, yes yes yes.

OK, searched for a paragraph and found it is from oops. The original said 'original' so I assumed it was. Yes I've read the entire posting guidelines. Much familiarity with fair use. Now I see it's been 'pulled' from the originals list. I'll edit it anyway. Also I clarified that I didn't write it clearly but some must have overlooked this. Plagiarism is lame and impossible nowadays. Thanks for finding the original source.

worries. I already took care of it.

You may not have been around when MN went throught the lawsuit mess with Righthaven. It wasn't pretty. I wasn't trying to be snarky BTW. It's a good article.


Repost is

Repost is sufficient without making it sound irrelevant?


Sure. That would have been fine...

except that Michael went and permalinked it, and several people's comments implied they thought I wrote it, which I didn't. If only.

edit: the laughter was towards the 'permalinkin' (in good spirit), not with the appearance that you wrote this, easily understood if a person didn't see the original original.

Good list

thanks for posting

I just cut and pasted an un-commentable post

The REAL #1 reason

Maybe I missed the text where this point was made, sorry my eyes glazed over at #5 or something.

The #1 reason,not to believe the official version is because the official version states that the 3 sky scrapers in the WTC that went down on 9/11 'collapsed', whereas the evidence clearly proves that the WTC skysrapers exploded.

If the towers had merely fallen, all of the evidence would be easily identifiable, human bodies, mangled office equipment and melted airplane as well as massive chunks of building.

Since the only physical evidence is tiny fragments, the buildings were obviously 'fragged'...

American Truth & Justice commission

... with the best independent investigators charged with finding as much truth as remains and most importantly tracing the chain of command up to the rotten stinking head of this treasonous mass-murder and cover-up. 2,790 Americans were murdered in plain sight ... and the perps are still among us.
