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.
