I read all the answers above, and I believe there are many intelligent people who answered this question.
Before there was Yahoo Answers, I decided to write many chapters about my feelings on 911.
I grew up in N.Y.C. I went to where the Twin Towers once stood...many times. When young, my dad took me there to look at what the stores had for sale. It was then a place for international trade. That memory I still have, along with the memory of visiting the Twin Towers...and some people who happened to be working there on Sept. 11, 2001.
I haven't forgotten anything.
For people to close their minds and decide it's similar to the Pearl Harbor attacks is not what I suggest.
Because I follow how capitalism works, and have been charting stocks for over twenty years, I have some interesting points to make.
The question is what would anyone want to pay to know what probably ( I say probably because we can never know the complete truth) happened?
People have paid to want to get some answers.
So far, nobody gave a good interpretation and many people have paid to read what their opinion is.
People who make big money writing books have given their views, but nobody has really gotten to the heart of the matter.
I decided not to pursue my writings, having solved 911 for myself. That alone gives me confidence to go forward and not have to cave in to other peoples' theories and ridiculous actions regarding all those events that make up for a horrible day in U.S. history.
The United States has had many perplexing and horrible events in it's illustrative history. 911 sticks out as one of the worst. I feel much sympathy for all those who perished and for those who continue to suffer due to what I feel mostly revolves around the economic system we live under.
I have clues, I did many hours of work on my own time.
Many young people like you will want to keep pondering this question because it's been haunting your mind and the mind of many more who desire answers.
hassan younes is right..it's complicated...too complicated for a normal mind to comprehend. A mind wants to be attracted to what makes sense, and often jumps to conclusions blindsightedly. I keep my mind open.
Frosty says we can only speculate. I have done lots of speculating. I have compiled facts and those facts keep pointing to an economic event that transfers a piece of valuable real estate to a better useful purpose, over many years time, in a vibrant economy now favoring global expansion.
And then we have "woman's place". That got the ire up of those free women who want to be in charge. Now that is an entirely different avenue of pursuit, one of many avenues spawned by 911.
911, the Kennedy assasinations, Martin Luther King, Oklahoma City bombing of the Murrah building, the horse drawn cart that exploded in downtown N.Y.C. some 80 years ago that killed over thirty people(Sept. 16, 1920)...it goes on and on.
We are starving for answers.
I have them...not all, but enough to draw some startling conclusions.
When you visit your local supermarket again, think how wonderful capitalism is and how easy you can buy the things you need. This comes with a price. Sometimes a high price.
It wasn't always like that.
I follow the money trail and capitalism.
I hope my views gave you some feeling of resolution.
Having done my homework, I am relieved.
