“9/11 was an inside job”

"9/11 was an inside job” is a slogan of 9/11 “truthers” who believe that the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center were a false flag operation organized by the United States government. A possible objective of the “false flag” operation, according to some of these theories, was to bring the United States into wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

As early as December 29, 2001, an internet post asked: “What if 9/11 was an INSIDE job?” A graphic with the statement “9/11 WAS AN INSIDE JOB” is cited from December 17, 2003; the truther slogan then appeared on bumper stickers. On September 23, 2010, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told the United Nations that the September 11th attacks resulted from an “inside job” by the United States government.


Wikipedia: 9/11 conspiracy theories
9/11 conspiracy theories allege that the September 11 attacks in 2001 were either intentionally allowed to happen or were a false flag operation orchestrated by an organization with elements inside the United States government. A poll taken in 2006 by Scripps Howard and Ohio University showed that, “More than a third of the American public suspects that federal officials assisted in the 9/11 terrorist attacks or took no action to stop them so the United States could go to war in the Middle East.” The most prominent theory is that the collapse of the World Trade Center and 7 World Trade Center were the result of a controlled demolition rather than structural weakening due to fire. Another prominent belief is that the Pentagon was hit by a missile launched by elements from inside the U.S. government or that a commercial airliner was allowed to do so via an effective standdown of the American military. Motives cited by conspiracy theorists include justifying the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq, and geostrategic interests in the Mideast, including pipeline plans launched in the early 1990s by Unocal and other oil companies.

Published reports and articles by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Popular Mechanics and mainstream media have rejected the 9/11 conspiracy theories. The civil engineering establishment generally accepts that the impacts of jet aircraft at high speeds in combination with subsequent fires, rather than controlled demolition, led to the collapse of the Twin Towers. NIST stated that it did not perform any test for the residue of explosive compounds of any kind in the debris.

This web page does not present a “conspiracy theory” in the usual pejorative sense (a whacko theory which can be dismissed out of hand). It takes the available evidence (mainly still photos and some video clips) and known facts and considers logically various explanations of what happened on September 11th in the light of this evidence. The inescapable conclusion is that September 11th was an inside job, planned and carried out by Americans (with possible foreign assistance) acting from within U.S. military and state security organizations. The three thousand people who died in these attacks were killed not by Arab terrorists but by agents of the U.S. government and their collaborators.

We both know that 9-11 was an inside job and that the future of humanity is at risk if people don’t wake up to the fact. Does it really matter how big the damned plane was?

500 Conspiracy Buffs Meet to Seek the Truth of 9/11
By ALAN FEUER
Published: June 5, 2006
CHICAGO, June 4 — In the ballroom foyer of the Embassy Suites Hotel, the two-day International Education and Strategy Conference for 9/11 Truth was off to a rollicking start.
(...)
Such was the coming-out for the movement known as “9/11 Truth,” a society of skeptics and scientists who believe the government was complicit in the terrorist attacks. In colleges and chat rooms on the Internet, this band of disbelievers has been trying for years to prove that 9/11 was an inside job.

World Trade Center Premieres, 9/11 Truth Movement Responds
by Carol Brouillet
Thursday Aug 10th, 2006 9:34 PM
A review of Oliver Stone’s new film, World Trade Center, as well as the day’s events, civil disobedience and an arrest on the East Coast, legal leafletting across the country, a strong statement on the West Coast marquee of the Grand Lake Theater where 9-11 Truth activists were invited to table, the mainstream press coverage.

Oliver Stone’s films have deeply touched many people’s lives, including my own. His film, JFK, prompted me to research the CIA and catalyzed my activism. I wrote to Stone twice, when we were working on one of the first American 9/11 truth documentaries, and later when I heard that he was making a film about 9/11. I sent him materials, books, documentaries about 9/11, and encouraged him to tell William Rodriguez’s story. Rodriguez worked in the North Tower and rescued many people, miraculously he lived through the experience. He also heard explosions before the first plane crashed, and witnessed the injuries that those explosions caused. I thought that Rodriguez’s story deeply challenged the official narrative of 9/11, and could wake people up to the reality that “9/11 was an Inside Job,” perhaps the biggest “psychological operation” of all times.

Fire, Not Explosives, Felled 3rd Tower on 9/11, Report Says
By ERIC LIPTON
GAITHERSBURG, Md. — Fires in the 47-story office tower at the edge of the World Trade Center site undermined floor beams and a critical structural column, federal investigators concluded on Thursday, as they attempted to curb still-rampant speculation that explosives caused the building’s collapse on Sept. 11, 2001.

“It is very difficult to find what you are not looking for,” said Shane Geiger, who contributes to a Web site that follows the topic and who had come to Maryland from Texas to quiz Dr. Sunder about his findings, with a bumper sticker on his laptop computer that says, “9-11 was an inside job.”

Ahmadinejad’s speech to UN: Hey, maybe 9/11 was an inside job

Via Mediaite, you’ll see in the clip how the U.S. delegation reacted to the “news.” A hint: It’s the same way they’ve reacted to all of his UN speeches.
