    Well, there you have it, Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11:

    Press Conference by the President

    Q Quick follow-up. A lot of the consequences you mentioned for pulling out seem like maybe they never would have been there if we hadn't gone in. How do you square all of that?

    THE PRESIDENT: ...And so my question -- my answer to your question is, is that, imagine a world in which Saddam Hussein was there, stirring up even more trouble in a part of the world that had so much resentment and so much hatred that people came and killed 3,000 of our citizens. You know, I've heard this theory about everything was just fine until we arrived, and kind of "we're going to stir up the hornet's nest" theory. It just doesn't hold water, as far as I'm concerned. The terrorists attacked us and killed 3,000 of our citizens before we started the freedom agenda in the Middle East.

    Q What did Iraq have to do with that?

    THE PRESIDENT: What did Iraq have to do with what?

    Q The attack on the World Trade Center?

    THE PRESIDENT: Nothing, except
    for it's part of -- and nobody has ever suggested in this administration that Saddam Hussein ordered the attack. Iraq was a -- the lesson of September the 11th is, take threats before they fully materialize, Ken. Nobody has ever suggested that the attacks of September the 11th were ordered by Iraq. I have suggested, however, that resentment and the lack of hope create the breeding grounds for terrorists who are willing to use suiciders to kill to achieve an objective. I have made that case. ...

    Report: No knowingly false info by FAA:

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060901/..._11_response_2

    "Members of the panel (9/11 Commission) had asked the Transportation Department inspector general to look into inaccurate statements made by FAA officials.

    "We did not find evidence to conclude that FAA officials knowingly made false statements," said the report, signed by Acting Inspector General Todd Zinser.

    The FAA said in a statement that it had provided more than 6,000 documents and materials to the commission."

    If the conspiracy theory is true, then what did my then boss see fly over her car and hit the pentagon? She said it was a plane, as she called us in the office in hysterics. She was stuck in traffic outside the pentagon.

    If the conspiracy theory is true, AA flt 77 didn't hit the building, then where did an acquaintance of mine go that was on the flight? That left behind her husband and young children?

    If the conspiracy theory is true, then what killed a friend of mine that was serving active duty in the pentagon?

    Regardless if these theory's are true or not, they make me sick. I lived it. My friends that lost loved ones, still do.

    I am tired of coming to the defence when these theories emerge. I don't know what happened. All I know is who I have lost.

    The Disbelievers
    9/11 Conspiracy Theorists Are Building Their Case Against the Government From Ground Zero

    I’m not a structural engineer, coroner, or pilot. I’m certainly not able to educate myself enough searching the net to formulate a valid opinion.
    Many people are trying to find out what happened because they don’t trust the government.
    I wonder why administration officials refuse to be under oath.

    I guess the recent video of OBL chatting up some of the hi-jackers released on Al Jezeera was just a fake to take credit away from some of the gov't's nefarious agents.

    Darn those terrorists trying to steal credit.

    We should go after them for that. If OBL wasn't in danger from our gov't before, his nasty attempt to steal credit puts him in mortal danger now. And, just in time for the elections, too.

    How convenient.

    It is amazing how little correct information we are given. One foreign reporter told me that "because of the hype, we have to publish although this subject is causing much merriment amongst the members of the media who are in the know." I was angry at him for this, and let him know...

    Like I said before, it is like an onion....

    HERE is a great video... it is long, about 2 hours, but explains everything.

    Is this a surprise? Mike Ruppert told the truth. You think it's going to get better?

    How is the above a response to the liberal media giving two of many opinions a chance to debate?

    ...AMY GOODMAN: "Jim Meigs of Popular Mechanics. "

    JAMES MEIGS: "We started talking about physical evidence for an aircraft hitting the Pentagon, that an aircraft was seen by hundreds of people, eyewitnesses. The wreckage was removed from the Pentagon. The bodies were removed from the Pentagon and identified. None of those people have materialized to explain that this was a conspiracy.

    We're not a political magazine. We're about facts. We're about what happens when airplanes crash, how buildings are built, and so we're not going back to conspiracies that might have been hatched, you know, during the Kennedy administration or other eras, but we are looking for physical evidence, positive evidence for any of these claims. Every time we get into detail on one, they fall apart." ...

    ... DAVID DUNBART: The wingspan of the plane was about 124 and change, not loose change, but that punched the hole into the building. And then the landing gear was more dense and heavier and continued on through a forest of columns to smash that exit ring. So when you see that nice round hole, that's the exit ring in -- that's the exit hole in the C-ring punched by the landing gear. And Purdue University did a massive computer reenactment of the crash and the aftermath, and they worked with the American Society of Civil Engineers to preparation of their report, and it's conclusive that the plane did strike the Pentagon...."

    conspiracy therories crop up when anything happens i watch both cnn and fox both are biased but i feel if i will get some idea of the truth somewhere inbetween the two views

    i cannot believe that the idea that bush ws capable of these acts but that osama was as innocent as a new born babe

    hussien and ossama were paying for suicide bombers in isreal

    9/11 commision did not whitewash bush as a matter of fact they were very critical of the act before and after the fact but i have never heard any one logical express the idea that it was intentional on our part

    i have talked to too many people who were eye witness to that horrible day they can't all be wrong or bought off
