Debunking 9/11 Conspiracy Theories

Over 15 years after the tragic 9/11 attacks and conspiracy theories still abound in the darkest corners of the internet as to what happened on that day. Despite the fact that countless experts, from senior government officials to respected journalists have thoroughly debunked each and every one of these ludicrous conspiracy theories, the alt-right has been stubbornly spreading this misinformation and infecting the minds of gullible Americans.

Conspiracy theorists still claim to this day that the buildings collapsed as a result of a controlled demolition, even though top engineers have provided simple and plausible explanations for how the buildings collapsed the way that they did. The supposed ‘smoking gun’ of building 7 has a very simple explanation – it collapsed due to a fire caused by the planes hitting nearby buildings. Countless engineers and construction experts have explained this mechanism in detail, but it’s never enough for people who want to believe that they’re living in a Hollywood spy thriller.

The official story is simple and is backed by mountains of evidence. Bin Laden, with the help of Saddam Hussein, managed to hijack a couple of passenger jets and fly them into the twin towers. The collisions gave rise to extremely high temperatures that eventually collapsed the metal frames inside the buildings from top to bottom. Building 7 collapsed for the same reasons, except the heat was caused by fire transferred from the nearby buildings. Simple! Any normal person would accept this explanation without endlessly questioning the official story and assuming that a vast dark network of conspirators is deceiving them.

It’s time to put these conspiracy theories to bed once and for all, and put this tragic event behind us. It’s now time to make sure this never happens again by taking out Assad and liberating the Syrian people, as Syria is currently a hotbed for terrorism.

Where was Trump on 9/11? It’s interesting that Trump continually insults Muslims, and here we are, fifteen years after 9/11, and this Islamophobe is seizing the White House despite losing the popular vote.

Islamaphobia caused 9/11. The attack was a retaliation against decades of US foreign policy oppressing Muslims. Trump is only exacerbating the problem by provoking them even further.

Black Lives Matter

Agreed, but it’s rather convenient that Donald Trump is a New Yorker. If he was in New York on 9/11, that would place him at the scene of the crime. We also know that Trump made false accusatory statements, claiming, ridiculously, that Muslims were cheering the attacks. Of course, Islamophobia caused 9/11, but did Trump actively promote that Islamophobia for his own political ambitions? This is something that must be investigated, and it must be investigated in full.

Of course he did! Trump is ALWAYS citing examples of so-called ‘Islamic extremism’ to justify his hatred of Muslims. He is stoking hatred for Islam all over the world and only causing ISIS to retaliate even more.

That’s interesting Pbier. I’m reading mixed reports about this from various accredited media sources. Some say that building 7 does exist and collapsed due to catching fire from the nearby buildings, and others don’t mention it, like the official accredited 911 Commission Report that you mention. But the one theme that ties them together is that the attacks were perpetrated by Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein. All media sources agree on that.

I don’t know – some say it does exist. But clearly it’s not important if it’s not in the official report!

Yes I agree. There needs to be an enforced indisputable truth here that it is illegal to misreport. This really is confusing.

Yeah if its not in the report its not important. Did the report mention “Black Lifes”?
Probably not.

I don’t know. I’ll look into it tomorrow and see what the problem might be. Maybe a lot of people have cached the old site and can’t see the new one. I’ll redirect the old one here and see if that makes a difference.

richandrenee I don’t know.
In my case my nerves broke down and I crossed the border yesterday to apply for political asylium in Canada. I know that it looks like a coward attitude but I was no longer able to withstand the thumbs down and the hostility around me, America has become a cesspool of white supremacists. Maybe I’ll write books like Bertol Brecht after he fled Nazi Germany. There were many Iraqis, Somalians, Libyans, Syrians in the queue, when I told them about my woes, the Internet bullying, they were so amazed , their mouth was wide open, it was probably hard for them to conceive how someone can suffer so much

Wow that must have been a difficult decision jfb. Don’t worry, you’re in good company – many beloved public figures and Hollywood stars have sadly vowed to leave the United States and it is our loss and Canada’s gain. It’s sad the very best Americans are leaving such as Hollywood stars and undocumented Americans, while the very worst are staying – rednecks, hillbillies and religious nuts.

richandrenee

You’ve made the correct move jfb – good for you. Just ignore that bigot TrueDat, you’re better than that, he’s evidence of just what enlightened progressives are now facing in the US.

Im tired of conspiracy theories too.

This was the act of islamic terrorists, to kill innocent people that were going about their lives. Islam culture and leaders generate these terrorist and terrorist acts and they have been fighting with someone ( either outsiders or internally) since islam began. Sharia law and islam view of women and others they consider motally reprehensible (LGBTAnd more) are treated barbarically. Islam seeks to spread their way throught the globe and wipe out others ideals and destroy diversity.

Please don’t say the word ‘terrorist’ – it’s triggering for many Muslims. The twin towers were brought down by Saddam Hussein, who was a secularist. I don’t see how that has anything to do with Islam.

EVERYONE knows Assad attacked his OWN people using venomous gas! And EVERYONE else knows he gets his weapons from RUSSIA! And we all know what Russia MEANS: Russia means PUTIN!

Everyone knows who else used venomous gas against his OWN people: Saddam Hussein: the very same Saddam Hussein everyone else knows our own President, George Dubya Bush, proved on live TV was responsible for 911! And who supplied Iraq with weapons? Russia!

The link between PUTIN and 911 is OBVIOUS!!!!!

You make a very good point Aggie – 9/11 was caused by Putin! Yet another reason why we need to go to war with Russia! For goodness sake they sailed a ship right through the English Channel and even tried to stop for fuel in Spain! Launch the nukes already Obama!

I am sure glad we have this settled once and for all. Now we should move-on to the other fake news about waco texas, twa 800. ok city, Randy Weaver, boston. the nightclub where my boyfriend and I lost so many of our loving gay friends, OMG it seems the list of all these fake news stories are unending. Thank all things good (like being gay) that we have you here to sort through the lies, deceit and cheating.

Most of those were caused by lax gun laws, right wing extremists and retaliations against Islamaphobia. We need to tackle each of these issues in order to prevent future terror attacks and save lives.

Wait a minute. Are u saying a new gun law would have magically made the terrorist not kill people?

I guess the idea is that the terrorist knows it is against the law ro kill someone bur doenst care but then discovers there is a gun law. Holy shit! Now the terrorist quits and becomes a writer for the accredited times because its ok to kill but not ok to brewk a gun law. Makes sense. Thanks again Million bone us for dollars.

Pbier, thanks for being such a great building inspector. Do you think you can start training classes for all those experts that got it wrong. Much appreciated.

2996 people are dead and over 6,000 are injured. What difference – at this point, what difference does it make?
