9/11 was Planned by the US Government

Theory: President George W. Bush and individuals in his administration knew about the attacks beforehand (or even orchestrated them) and purposefully allowed them to occur.

Facts: A 2006 poll found that 42% of Americans believed that the government and the 9/11 commission “concealed or refused to investigate critical evidence that contradicts their official explanation of the September 11th attacks.” An independent group launched a massive investigation in 2005 that found the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) did not have a history of having fighter jets prepared to intercept aircraft that had gone off route.

Unanswered Questions: Many conspiracy theorists do not understand how the American military was unable to intercept no less than four planes that had gone suspiciously off route. Also, there has never been an independent inquiry into the events of 9/11 despite two years of repeated attempts by the families of the victims of 9/11.This is one of the reasons why conspiracy theorists believe there was a government cover up. Theorists also point to the fact that both the President and Vice-President took extraordinary measures to limit any investigations into the events of 9/11. The steel from the Twin Towers was also shipped out of the country before an investigation could be performed and the NTSB never held inquiries into the four plane crashes as required by law; and the FBI is withholding the data from the flight records. It’s been said that the World Trade Center towers came down as a result of planted explosives, that a plane didn’t crash into the Pentagon, and that Flight 93 crashed in Pennsylvania because it was shot down — a theory that was only fueled when Donald Rumsfeld accidentally said during a 2004 speech that terrorists shot it down.

Many experts also agree that the towers could not have collapsed from the force of an aircraft alone or the fire from an exploding aircraft. No steel structure in history has collapsed due to fire because the maximum temperature of a kerosene fire is insufficient to melt steel.

Theorists point to the Project for the New American Century, a conservative think tank that argues for increased American global leadership, whose former members include ex-Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, Vice President Dick Cheney and several other key Bush administration figures. A 1990 report from the group stated that “some catastrophic and catalyzing event — like a new Pearl Harbor” would be needed to budge public opinion in their favor.

Ideas: The government needed a catastrophic event to generate public support for militarization, expansion of the police state, and other intrusive foreign and domestic policies by which they would benefit. The Patriot Act followed after the 9/11 events, and the War on Freedom began.

Conspire.com Judgment: While it’s nearly unimaginable to think that the United States government could be behind the killing of more than 3,000 innocent citizens on September 11 for political gain, the fact is that the United States and every major country in the world has done so in the name of war. The fact remains that there are many unanswered questions surrounding the events of 9/11 and we at Conspire.com are leaving our minds very, very open to the idea that a cover-up could have taken place. Sadly, conspiracy or not, between military men and women and Iraqi and Afghan citizens, an estimated 919,967 have been killed since the War on Terror began in 2003 based on the lowest credible estimates.
