You've got to be kidding. It would be impossible to keep something of that magnitude a secret.
Common sense is not one of your strongest traits is it?

Some of the flat out craziest people I've ever met have been PhD. Having a degree in some esoteric field doesn't mean they have the sense to do anything practical.
All a degree shows is that you went to school and pleased people.
Not that you can drive a big rig, or fix a water heater, or cook a meal. Or figure out 9/11 from every conceivable angle.
I can understand why someone wouldn't want to believe it, but its pretty clear, its not a mystery, its just a horrible thing to have happened. The terrorists even bragged about it.

If you get your news only from Fox News then you have no news no facts no truth only propaganda. Clear Channel and all corporately owned channels do not want you to know the truth. Even CNN is in on the cover-up. Scientists absolutely proved the Thermite used and planned demolition (as proved by the falling of Building 7)! Check out the book Omerta by Mario Puzo (Feb. 2001) to see the blueprint for 911. On a poster in a Valiant comic book (or issued with a slip case hardbound set) in Dr. Solar and you'll see an explosion that took place there of a similar nature 10 years before this all took place. Wizard of the Coast even was behind it by issuing Jihad cards just prior (published by some Jewish guys). Yes indeed as far fetched as it sounds Marvin Bush was there at the World Trade Center for months prior to this plan of action on an empty floor doing what? (also lusting for the Gold under the World Trade Center)! Remember we were heading into a recession with Bush suddenly placed in office which was seemingly staved off by 911 -- an inside job for sure! (Cheney at the heart of it with Bush and Rumsfeld and others). We are at that recession now again as the worst President in History is trying to rewrite it. See the DVD's (widely circulated by concerned citizens): Loose Change 2nd edition; Sept. 11 Revisited at www.911revisited.com and so much more. The Scientists I watched on TV were very clear how this happened. I believe the Scientists. I do not believe politicians (either side). Our 2 party system has failed us and no matter who wins the next elections the corporations will still tell them what to do and they will do it. Since Kennedy our vote has never counted not even once. The military is in charge. Not the people. Kucinich might have helped. Obama and Hillory will be more of the same and an even longer stay in Iraq. We need a viable 3rd party. We need our vote to count. We need the Constitution upheld. Now I realize over half the States this nation in which I was born gets its income from war. We have a war economy! (And that is why things won't change).
The internet has some facts if people research from a nuetral place they can find the Truth! No one talks about the fear warp of control is how Republican so called leaders always do it. That is suppress us. Color and gender won't make a change if they too are owned. Who are the people who benefitted from 911? The economic war on us is now underway (again control via fear). Cheney and Bush wanted ultimate power and should at least be impeached and removed from office to show this is not OK with us. Over 100000 innocent Iraqi's have died and Bin Laden is in Pakistan (not Afganistan). What about the white powder at the same time as 911? Wasn't that an inside job too? A trillion dollars wasted and you want to debate this. Wow. How many brave servicemen and women have needlessly died in a false war? The rich control you and I because they are merciless. But God is real and judgment is guaranteed.

The Educated types are familiar with the truth concerning
the FED/IRS(internal rockefeller scam) and central oil-
another Rockefeller scam. And how Senator Jay-Rock
is in charge of National intelligence (notice how "all" senate
bills have been foisted upon the rest of the senate through
the intelligence commitee lately)
NAU then WWIII then NWO. Then notice how Nagasaki
and Hiroshima are currently thriving cities-none of that
50k year nuclear fall-out. HBO did a documentary on the
matter showing how Japans present youth know little or
nothing about that part of their history. Also, check-out
By the way--do you have your real NAFTA/DL card yet.
And the phd's picking on you--safe to say they will do
well with erasing our borders and rfiding the little people
into paying personal income tax that should never have
existed in this country. THAT's what the Revolution was
all about in the first place according to B.Franklin.Source(s): My own personal IRS-verichip

Guess what, I went here:
got a list of lots of people that believe that 9/11 was an inside job. Added up the totals, and it looks like your list does not represent a statistically significant percentage of the survivors.
Let's talk realistically here.
Assuming that everyone that lost their lives had only two survivors, that would mean around 6000 survivors. The list of 200 people on http://www.patriotsquestion911.com/survivors.html
means that you are only looking at 3.33% of the survivors buy into the BS that is the truther movement. And, we all know that the odds are that each person that lost their life on 9/11 has more then two survivors, which only pushes that percentage lower and lower.
Now, let's tally up the numbers that really count:
Number of people in the US: Approx. 300 Million
Number of people convinced by you to believe in the inside job conspiracy: Zero.
You all gotta do better then that.

They don't and only a very disturbed person would sit on this venue and take the time to actually post what you just posted.
I lost two cousins on 9-11 and resent the accusation BUT one must consider the source: "Far Left Wing Ultra ACLU Adoring Loonies".
They were brave NYFD heroes, James and Michael and they died because of Radical Islam and 19 Muslims "NOT" a sitting President or the USA killing it's own.
I am, almost sorry now I dignified this question with an answer.

Because it was, and all those families that lost someone in Bushes shambles should be really pissed!
Look up the word Thermite, do a lil research on it than kook at the steal beams at Ground Zero.
Let me know what you think!
- dartagnon pLv 61 decade ago
Because it WAS an inside job. All the evidence points directly at our Shadow Gov't. They needed to create something with lots of death, people calling their loved-ones last minute to say they loved them as they plummeted hundreds of feet to their doom. It had to be BIG and it had to point at the Arabs. We needed, and wanted their oil. We even called our first operation "Operation Iraq Liberation" or O.I.L.
For a detailed list of all the things that the gov't did WRONG in their cover-up of this obvious inside job read the book by David Icke called Alice in Wonderland and the 911 tragedy: The truth about 911. He has tons of references in the glossary in the back of the book if you want to check HIS sources and get to the root of the whole thing. But I found his synopsis to be quite revealing and accurate.Source(s): Iceman ... there is more and more proof coming out each day. The news, newspapers, it's beginning to unravel. The people will know the truth soon. Open your eyes and accept the truth ... it's out there.
- Anonymous1 decade ago
How do you not run up against the character limit?
I am a PhD and I don't think it was an inside job. Are you going to believe me?
Look who those people are - almost all liberal activists. How does that carry any weight?
I got tired of reading 1/3 of the way through your list - but the only name I recognized was Ed Asner. Wasn't that Gomez Adams?
I also saw "Michael J. Fox" but then realized it was someone else with the same name. Too bad.
- Unsub29Lv 71 decade ago
I'm interested to see what information they have. They are right to be skeptical of our government. Too many government officials have abused the public's trust without consequences. It would be very naive to not consider this possibility. I don't know if 911 was an inside job or not but based on what little I know, some things just don't add up. The Boston group went through the tolls 5 days without paying. (something like this, more than 3 days) No one tried to track them down? That doesn't sound like Massachusetts unless these folks had connections. It's possible but seems unlikely based on what I know.
