    somebody should inform them that it was a Zionist/Mossad job.

    Because there is not one single shred of hard evidence that the "Official Theory" presented by the 9/11 Comission Report is even possible, let alone likely.

    The only reason that many rational & educated people are considering that 9/11 might have been an inside job is that the White House did so much to avoid a real investigation that it became suspicious.

    Why would they want to hide the evidence if they were innocent?

    Again I notice that aside from childish name-calling, the opposition has nothing real or intelligent to say. Log off and let the adults talk about how we are going to avoid the next false flag operation.

    Explain this to me. You claim that Bush used 9/11 to take extra power and to get the OK to invade Iraq.

    But it wasn't Iraqis on those planes. They were Saudis.

    You claim that 9/11 was all set up. It was all a conspiracy. It was perfectly planned, and you claim there were slip ups in execution.

    The Bush Administration came in wanting to take on Iraq militarily. They wanted Saddam Hussein.

    You claim that 9/11 was a set up. If so, why didn't they set up Iraqis to be the hijackers? If that were the case, the entire country would support war in Iraq. You claim they controlled the whole thing, yet they set up the wrong people to be the hijackers???

    Another question--EVERYBODY saw planes in New York. No question there. You CLAIM that it was a missile that attacked the Pentagon.

    Why would "they" use PLANES in New York and a MISSILE in the Pentagon?? Did they think the Pentagon was out in the middle of nowhere where no one would see it?

    Your arguments make absolutely no sense and they lack basic logic.

    But, you know what, when you're faced with having to make some actual logical, reasonable arguments, all that's going to happen is that you're going to block me because you CT's don't want to deal with hard truth. You just want to hear Alex Jones tell you a bunch of really badly written horror stories.

    The former Italian President claims that 9/11 attacks were organized by Israeli Security service Mossad. The Israeli undercover officer hired Muslim extremists,trained them and gave them money and documents.

    Ok now that you've proven that you can cut and paste, why not make an actual list of members of the families as you say you have done. These are not survivors of victims in most cases. Most of the people you list are conspiracy theorists and nuts, extreme libs from the ultra left wing nut side of the democratic party.

    They have not one credible shred of evidence that 9/11 was an inside job.

    In fact, why would the Dems blow up the world trade center anyway? I know most Libs are nuts but that's going prertty far even for them. How then did this conspircay theory get started?

    Liberals prefer character assassination to real explosives/

    I don't think they could have done this.

    There are some that just can not believe that Islamic terrorists attacked us that day. They are so desperate to believe that there is more there. The attack was so planned out and executed so well that we do not believe terrorists are capable of doing this. But it has been proven time and time again that there was no inside job. We just got caught with our pants down durning the Clinton years. This is why it is so important today not to get caught again.

    why are so many people stupid? JUst because you are a victim, doesn't make you intelligent. Look at a Barack Hussein follower. Do you see a rational person? Do you see a political supporter? Or do you see a ravenous disciple? They faint over him...hes a cult hero, a religion.

    Most of the victims of 9/11 lived in New York, a heavily liberal town, they love Billary out there so OF COURSE they will blame Bush over Jihadist Muslims.

    Being a victim does not equate to reasoned suggest as such is logical fallacy.

    Indirectly it was. Yeah it was an external terrorist attack but the lightweight truss construction is what brought the towers down.
