i'm all for voices and opinions.
i don't believe in silencing the most "bizzare" of the theorists. in fact, i am against "hate speech" laws and i encourage the public debate with holocaust deniers - so that their ridiculous theories can be shows for the frauds that they are.
in similar vein, i think these 9/11 conspiracists should be debated and their theories exposed to public light, with evidence disproving them. the republic of india has a motto borrowed from an ancient hindu text. it says "satyameva jayate
" --- translates to "truth alone triumphs".
that said, i think these 9/11 'conspiracy theories' are bunkum.
here's something i can put forth as "counter argument" , just right off the top of my head:
9/11 conspiracits claim that the us government, for whatever ends, killed nearly 3,000 innocent americans. if the government has no problem killing 3,000 innocent people, this raises the question: if the government has no ethical qualms about killing thousands of its own people, then why wouldn't the government kill the conspiracy theorists as well? what's a few more lives to them to ensure the success of this conspiracy?
i'm no friend of the government. infact, i'm not very fond of any
but bunkum conspiracy theories must stop.
here are a couple of good websites :
matthew, with regard to the many different questions that are being asked, and some of which are addressed in the links you have provided, i am more than willing to back down if what they are saying, is addressed in a credible way. it's not a problem for me, that body parts and a passport, are said to be found. for myself, i never doubted that those planes hit those buildings. not everyone who questions what occurred that day, questions all the same particulars. i might with some things, but not others.
i have started looking at what you have provided, and i will say, that i can agree with some of their explanations for the physical evidence. for example, the use of cell phones was never an issue for me. i might still be unconvinced about wtc 7, maybe. i will look at other links also that address physical evidence in an attempt to explain how the buildings came down. i really do want to know if the official story is correct in that regard. if i can believe what they are saying, i'll admit it. lord knows, i've been wrong before, and i'll be wrong again.
there are different theories with regard to who was responsible, and of course, why. that is the central issue. even if it all happened as has been explained, and the guys who did the deeds genuinely believed in whatever their cause was, it does not have to mean that they were not used to advance an agenda other than what we have been told. and, on the other hand, it also does not mean that all governmental persons, etc are in some way connected to these events. your question, however jokingly made or not, about why the conspiracy buffs are not also on "the hit list," is because they don't need to be. they have been neutralized by ridicule. even if some of what they are saying is true, because some of it seems "over the top", all is discredited. the same argument could be given to the official story. theorists may dismiss all of that story because parts of it do not seem believable. i think we would all be best served by being willing to look more closely at this. and, even then, we may not be able to agree, but at least we went there. thank you for your consideration.
