Conspiracy Theories #2

From the mis-informed to the wacky!!

                          911 CONSPIRACY THEORIES 


Continued from previous page:



9/11 conspiracy theories - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia 


There are allegations that individuals within the Pakistani
Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) may have played an important
role in financing the attacks. There are also claims that other
foreign intelligence agencies, such as the Israeli Mossad, had
foreknowledge of the attacks, and that Saudi Arabia may have
played a role in financing the attacks. Francesco Cossiga, former
President of Italy from 1985 until his resignation over Operation
Gladio, asserts that it is common knowledge among democratic
circles in the U.S. and Europe, and primarily in the Italian
center-left, that the 9/11 attacks were a joint operation of the
CIA and the Mossad.  148  General Hamid Gul, a former head of
ISI, believes the attacks were an "inside job" originating in the
United States, perpetrated by Israel or neo-conservaties. 149

(And of course so it has ever been with major events in history.
Conspiracy people have always been around for just about any
event of note - as stated before, some people are hooked,
drugged, upon the mental and often the emotional thrill that
conspiracy ideas gives them. And with such die-hards there is NO
answer or facts that can change their mind that it was not a
conspiracy - Keith Hunt)


NO PLANE THEORIES

Nico Haupt and Morgan Reynolds, formerly the chief economist
within the Labor Department under the Bush administration argue
that no planes were used in the attacks. Reynolds claims it is
physically impossible that the Boeing planes of Flights 11 and
175, being largely aluminium, could have penetrated the steel
frames of the Towers, and that digital compositing was used to
depict the plane crashes in both news reports and subsequent
amateur video. 151 "There were no planes, there were no
hijackers," Reynolds insists. "I know, I know, I'm out of the
mainstream, but that's the way it is." According to David
Shayler, "The only explanation is that they were missiles
surrounded by holograms made to look like planes," he says.
"Watch footage frame by frame and you will see a cigar-shaped
missile hitting the World Trade Center." Truth movement veterans
tend to distance themselves from "no-planers", 62/151  Discussion
of no plane theories have been banned from certain conspiracy
theory websites while advocates have been threatened with
violence by posters at other conspiracy theory websites. 152


(As I've stated earlier, such an idea as no planes, no people, is
so crazy an idea it is hardly worth the time to debate it, for
hundreds of people would have had to have been imployed to lie,
cry, story tell, hold funerals or memorial services, going all
the way to friends of those people as well as relatives and co-
workers etc. and etc. But such is the mind-set of some planet
Pluto fruity-nut cases - Keith Hunt)


REPTILIAN SHAPE-SHIFTING ALIENS

See also: David Icke

English author and public speaker David Icke argues that
reptilian, shape-shifting extraterrestrial humanoids are
responsible for the 9/11 attacks. According to Icke, a reptilian
global elite is behind all things that occur in the world. Icke's
theories are rejected by 911blogger.com and other conspiracy
theory sites) 153/154

(I mean, as if not to be out-done by the no plane/no people idea,
this guy's thinking is from further out than planet Pluto - he's
from the next galaxie - light years away - Keith Hunt)


DRUG INDUSTRY CARTEL

In September 2009 public health expert Leonard G. Horowitz and
journalist Sherri Kane published online and sent to the F.B.I. an
affidavit with documents they claim prove the 9/11 attacks were
part of a population reduction conspiracy by an international
drug industry cartel that involves leading business and media
figures. The pair alleged the documents show a link between the
9/11 attacks, Larry Silverstein and a conspiracy that also
involved creating the swine flu pandemic. 155

(Again, what people come up with is truly mind-bending. I think
they are drugged out on the drugs they claim the conspiracy is
all about. As you should be seeing the conspiracy buffs have no
end to the variety of conspiracy ideas, much like all the
"denominations" of Christendom - there is one for every taste of
whatever gives you the best thrill down your spine - Keith Hunt)


MOTIVES


PAX AMERICANA

Main article: Pax Americana

In 2006, members of the group "Scholars for 911 Truth" argued
that a group of US neo-conservatives called the Project for a New
American Century (PNAC), which included Paul Wolfowitz, Dick
Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld, set on US world dominance and
orchestrated the 9/11 attacks as an excuse to hit Iraq,
Afghanistan and later Iran. 156  In September 2000 the PNAC
released a strategic treatise entitled Rebuilding America's
Defences. David Ray Griffin in his 2004 book "The New Pearl
Harbor: Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration and
911" argued that the treatise may have been the blueprint for
9/11 attacks. Specifically the language in the paper that read
"the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary
change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and
catalyzing event - like a new Pearl Harbor" was describing an
alleged motive. 157/158/159

The Defense Planning Guidance of 1992, was drafted by Paul
Wolfowitz on behalf of then Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney.
This was described as "a blueprint for permanent American global
hegemony" by Andrew J. Bacevich in his book "American Empire: The
Realities and Consequences of U.S. Diplomacy." 160

Matt Taibbi argued in his book "The Great Derangement" that
conspiracy theorists have taken what is written in the paper
"completely out of context", and that the "transformation"
referenced in the paper is explicitly stated to be a decades-long
process to turn the Cold War-era military into a "new, modern
military" which could deal with more localized conflicts. 161  He
stated that, for this to be evidence of motive, either those
responsible would have decided to openly state their objectives,
or would have read the paper in 2000 and quickly laid the
groundwork for the 9/11 attacks using it as inspiration. 161

(The things that can be taken out of context or even within a
context of a decades long re-vamping the USA war machine to meet
modern space-age technology or mad-men that may arise, is truly
inventive at times. They should be given a prize for "wandering
mind fiction story tellers." How do you counter such mind
thinkers? Only time can obliterate their far-out ideas. And time
is slowly blowing them apart (the pun is certainly not intended)
and showing that such motives as the USA wanting to dominate and
rule the world is about as far away from the truth of the matter
as you can get. Crazy Gentile leaders (like Hitler) may have
wanted or still want to rule the world, but the USA and Britain
wanting to do so .... well they had no better time to do so than
after the Second World War, they only had Russia to blow away, if
they wanted to be the world power - Keith Hunt)


INVASIONS

Conspiracy theorists have questioned whether the Oil Factor and
9/11 provided the United States and the United Kingdom with a
reason to launch a war they had wanted for some time, and suggest
that this gives them a strong motive for either carrying out the
attacks, or allowing them to take place. For instance, Andreas
von Bulow, a former research minister in the German government,
has argued that 9/11 was staged to justify the subsequent wars in
Afghanistan and Iraq. 162  Former Malaysian premiere Mahathir
Mohamad was quoted as saying that there was "strong evidence"
that the attacks were faked so the United States could go to war
against Muslims. 163

(Again, if the USA/Britain wanted control of the oil of the
Middle East as well as smashing the fanatical Islam fellows, all
they needed to do was bring in the "weapons of mass destruction"
in Iraq, and ..... off to war we go planning [being planned for
ex years as the theory goes]. There was no need to kill thousands
in some blow-ups on USA soil, mainly civilians, when they surely
would have known they would loose thousands from the military,
when a war came about in the Middle East. "Weapons of mass
destruction" was in the end ALL that the USA/Britain needed and
gave as to why they would go to war with Iraq and Afghanistan.
And as for "oil" - look at the loss of oil right now in the Gulf
of Mexico for the USA market in 2010. Is the USA slowing down any
in its regular way of life? Are people driving less with their
cars? Is there any line-ups in anything [except rock-concerts and
iPad machines from Apple]? Are we hearing the USA is missing
anything from missing oil from the Gulf? Are we hearing more oil
must be brought in from the Middle East to satisfy domestic
needs? The "oil" reason for war is so outdated and so far off the
track of reality for the Western world to make war over in the
21st century, it is laughable - Donald Duck laughable - yet some
minds are so soaked with "oil conspiracy" their brains would slip
out if their skull opened up - Keith Hunt)


SUGGESTED HISTORICAL PRECEDENTS

Operation Northwoods was a false-flag plan that originated within
the United States government in 1962. The plan called for Central
Intelligence Agency (CIA) or other operatives to commit genuine
acts of terrorism in U.S. cities to blame and subsequently invade
Cuba for it.

Time magazine contrasted events which inspired past conspiracy
theories with those that inspire 9/11 conspiracy theories such as
the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Time called the public
assassination of Kennedy a "private, intimate affair" when
compared with the attack on the World Trade Center, which was
witnessed by millions of people and documented by hundreds of
videographers; and stated, "there is no event so plain and clear
that a determined human being can't find ambiguity in it." 28

(AMEN to Time magazine on that! Something as clear as the nose on
your face, some people will think was a conspiracy against your
face, by insider evolution of the body - Keith Hunt)


PROPONENTS

Main article: 9/11 Truth movement


Many individuals and organizations that support or discuss 9/11
conspiracy theories consider themselves to be part of the 9/11
Truth movement.

Prominent adherents of the movement include, among others,
theologian David Ray Griffin, physicist Steven E. Jones, software
engineer Jim Hoffman, architect Richard Gage, film producer Dylan
Avery, former Governor of Minnesota Jesse Ventura, former member
of the U.S. House of Representatives Cynthia McKinney,  164
actors Daniel Sunjata, Ed Asner, and Charlie Sheen, political
science professor Joseph Diaferia and journalist Thierry Meyssan.
63/165/166  Adherents of the 9/11 truth movement come from
diverse social backgrounds and hold diverse views on other
political issues.

Among the organizations that actively discuss and promote such
theories are Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, a group that
focuses on the collapse of the World Trade Center buildings; 9/11
Truth, founded in 2004; Scholars for 9/11 Truth, founded in 2005,
and Scholars for 9/11 Truth & Justice, a group that split from
Scholars for 9/11 Truth in 2007 and runs the online publication
Journal of 9/11 Studies; 9/11 Citizens Watch, which was already
formed in 2002; and the Hispanic Victims Group. Several of these
groups collects signatures for petitions asking for further
investigation of the September 11 attacks.


MEDIA REACTION

While discussion and coverage of these theories is mainly
confined to Internet pages, books, documentary films, and
conversation, a number of mainstream news outlets around the
world have covered the issue.

The Norwegian version of the July 2006 Le Monde diplomatique
sparked interest when they ran, on their own initiative, a three
page main story on the 9/11 attacks and summarized the various
types of 9/11 conspiracy theories (which were not specifically
endorsed by the newspaper, only recensed). 167  The Voltaire
Network, which has changed position since the September 11
attacks and whose director, Thierry Meyssan, became a leading
proponent of 9/11 conspiracy theory, explained that although the
Norwegian version of Le Monde diplomatique had allowed it to
translate and publish this article on its website, the
mother-house, in France, categorically refused it this right,
thus displaying an open debate between various national editions.
168  In December 2006, the French version published an article by
Alexander Cockburn, co-editor of CounterPunch, which strongly
criticized the alleged endorsement of conspiracy theories by the
U.S. left-wing, alleging that it was a sign of "theoretical
emptiness." 169/170


Also, on the Canadian website for CBC News: The Fifth Estate, a
program titled, "Conspiracy Theories: uncovering the facts behind
the myths of Sept.11, 2001" was broadcast on October 29, 2003,
stating that what they found may be more surprising than any
theories. 171  On November 27, 2009 the The Fifth Estate aired a
documentary entitled "The Unofficial Story" where several
prominent members of the 9/11 Truth Movement made their case. 
172/173

An article in the September 11, 2006 edition of Time magazine
comments that the major 9/11 conspiracy theories "depend on
circumstantial evidence, facts without analysis or documentation,
quotes taken out of context and the scattered testimony of
traumatized eyewitnesses", and enjoy continued popularity because
"the idea that there is a malevolent controlling force
orchestrating global events is, in a perverse way, comforting".

It concludes that "conspiracy theories are part of the process by
which Americans deal with traumatic public events" and constitute
"an American form of national mourning." 174

The Daily Telegraph published an article titled "The CIA couldn't
have organised this..." which said "The same people who are
making a mess of Iraq were never so clever or devious that they
could stage a complex assault on two narrow towers of steel and
glass" and "if there is a nefarious plot in all this bad
planning, it is one improvised by a confederacy of dunces". This
article mainly attacked a group of scientists led by Professor
Steven E. Jones, now called "Scholars for 9/11 Truth and
Justice." They said "most of them aren't scientists but
instructors... at second-rate colleges". 175

A major Australian newspaper The Daily Telegraph, published an
article in May 2007 that was highly critical of Loose Change 2, a
movie which presents a 9/11 conspiracy theory. 176

Doug MacEachern in a May 2008 column for the Arizona Republic
wrote that while many "9/11 truthers" are not crackpots that
espouse "crackpot conspiracy theories", supporters of the
theories fail to take into account both human nature and that
nobody has come forward claiming they were participants in the
alleged conspiracies. 177  This view seconded by Timothy
Giannuzzi, a Calgary Herald op-ed columnist specializing in
foreign policy. 178

On June 7, 2008, The Financial Times Magazine published a lengthy
article on the 9/11 Truth Movement and 9/11 conspiracy theories.
179

Charlie Brooker, a British multimedia personality, in a July 2008
column published by The Guardian as part of its "Comment is free"
series agreed that 9/11 conspiracy theorists fail to take in
account human fallacies and added that believing in these
theories gives theorists a sense of belonging to a community that
shares privileged information thus giving the theorists a
delusional sense of power. 180  The commentary generated
over 1700 online responses, the largest in the history of the
series. 181  In a September 2009 piece, The Guardian were more
supportive of 9/11 conspiracy theories however, asking, "when did
it become uncool to ask questions? When did questioners become
imbeciles?" 182

On September 12, 2008, Russian State Television broadcast in
prime time a documentary made by Member of the European
Parliament Giulietto Chiesa entitled Zero, sympathetic to those
who question the mainstream account of the attacks according to
Chiesa. According to Thierry Meyssan in conjunction with the
documentary, Russian State Television aired a debate on the
subject. The panel consisted of members from several countries
including 12 Russians who hold divergent views. The motive of
Russian State Television in broadcasting the documentary was
questioned by a commentator from The Other Russia who noted that
Russian State Television had a history of broadcasting programs
involving conspiracy theories involving the United States
govemment. 183/184/185

Nasir Mahmood in a commentary printed by the Pakistan Observer
wrote favorably about a 9/11 truth lecture and film festival held
in California and quoted a Jewish speaker at that festival who
said that none of the 19 suspected hijackers had been proven
guilty of anything and compared racism against Muslims resulting
from what he called false accusations to the racism against Jews
in the Nazi era. 186

On November 10, 2008, ITN broadcast a story summarizing various
9/11 conspiracy theories. 187

The emergence of the birther movement in 2009 has led to
comparisons between that movement and the 9/11 Truth Movement,
with both movements seen in a very negative light. Moon Landing
conspiracy theories have also been compared to the birther and
9/11 conspiracy theories. James Borne, a journalist for The Times
who covered the September 11 Attacks, described his assignment
covering a 9/11 truth meeting "Perhaps the most intellectually
scary assignment I have had in recent years".  188/189/190/191

On August 31, 2009, the National Geographic Channel aired the
program 9/11 Science and Conspiracy, in which the Energetic
Materials Research and Testing Center tested some of the claims
frequently made by those who question the official 9/11 account.
Specifically, the experiments concluded that burning jet fuel
alone can sufficiently raise the temperature of a steel support
column to the point of structural failure, that a controlled
demolition using conventional techniques would leave clear
evidence that was not found at Ground Zero, that using thermite
is not an effective technique to melt a steel column, and that
even if thermite chemical signatures were found, it would be
impossible to tell if thermite was actually used or if the traces
came from the reaction of aircraft aluminum with other substances
in the fire. The testing also concluded that the type of hole
found at the Pentagon was consistent with the mainstream
scenario, and that damage from a bombing or missile attack would
differ from the damage that occurred. In the program, several
prominent 9/11 conspiracy theorists viewed rough edits of the
experiments, and expressed their disagreement with the findings.
192/193

(And did I not give you the logical SAME answer already in past
studies on this issue. I had NOT read this about National
Geographic until this monment of entering this segment on this
Website. But logic and common sense is seldom found in the brain
of those who push and promote conspiracy ideas - they will still
deny the facts of the matter - they are drugged on the potion
called "conspiracy" - Keith Hunt)

The British left wing magazine New Statesman listed David Ray
Griffin as the 41st most important person who matters today. The
magazine said that Griffin's "books on the subject have lent a
sheen of respectability that appeals to people at the highest
levels of government". The publication listed 9/11 conspiracy
thories as "one of the most pernicious global myths". 194
Griffin's book "The New Pearl Harbor Revisited" was chosen by
Publishers Weekly as a "Pick of the Week" in November 2008. 195

Denver public television KBDI-TV has aired 9/11 truth
documentaries several times. The stations spokesperson claimed
airing these documentaries has been a boon for the stations fund
raising efforts. 196

Glenn Beck, television and radio host, said of the allegations:
"There are limits to debasement of this country, aren't there? I
mean, it's one thing to believe that our politicians are capable
of being Bernie Madoff. It's another to think that they are
willing to kill 3,000 Americans. Once you cross that line, you're
in a whole new territory." 197

(AMEN TO THAT STATEMENT!! It's one thing to see errors, blunders,
mistakes, even fraud and lies, and just bad moral things, done by
politicians [President Clinton and the young "Monica" gal one
example], but willing to kill 3,000 plus from America and other
world nations on 9/11 .... cross that line and you are in a whole
new territory all right - the territory of freaky minds from
planet Pluto - Keith Hunt)

In March 2010 The Washington Post editorialized against Yukihisa
Fujita, a prominent Japanese politician who has espoused 9/11
conspiracy theories. They described Fujita as "a man so
susceptible to the imaginings of the lunatic fringe". 198


IN POPULAR CULTURE


In June 2005 the popular German State Television murder mystery
program Tatort ran an episode in which a woman who claims the
9/11 attacks were instigated by the Bush family for oil and power
is targeted by FBI and CIA hitmen after her male roommate is
found dead. The roommate was trained to be a 9/11 pilot but was
left behind. The episode viewed by 7 million people ended when
the detectives investigating the death believed her and she
escapes to an unnamed Arab country. 199

In season 10 of the animated show South Park, the episode
"Mystery of the Urinal Deuce" centers around 9/11 conspiracy
theories. After Eric Cartman, a main character in the show,
blames Kyle Broflovski of causing 9/11, Kyle and his friend Stan
Marsh end up in the White House, where they are told that the
government did in fact cause the 9/11 attacks. They escape, and
eventually it is revealed that the government wants people to
think that they caused 9/11, so that they think the government
has more power than it does. 200

A Rescue Me episode featured a character played by actor Daniel
Sunjata who is a 9/11 conspiracy theorist in real life,
explaining to a French journalist that the 9/11 attacks were a
"neoconservative government effort" to create a new Pearl Harbor
to control oil and increase military spending. 201/202  According
to Denis Leary major plot lines in the first 10 episodes of the
show's season 5 revolved around reinvestigation and conspiracy
theories surrounding the 9/11 attacks. 203

("Conspiracy ideas" make for that part of the human mind that
cannot deal with "reality" but must have a deeper sinister
motive, a motive that must hold deeper secret truths, for the
horrible out and out reality just cannot be true. Some brains
cannot accept that their country and military could be so out of
tune, out of step, have so great mismanagements, so much
uncontrol of so much, that could allow some fanatical
individuals, from a society that hates anything called "American"
to actually pull-off such an attack. Such a mind cannot accept
the reality of a failed Government, that is supposed to protect
us from this crime of 9/11, and hence it can only accept that the
Government was behind it all, or knew it was going to happen, and
allowed it, so it could go to war over in the Middle East. Then
of course that mind has to have a reason for war in the Middle
East, and "oil" for the consuming drugged on oil society of the
USA and Briatin industrial/personal machine is the easiest thing
at hand to bind the conspiracy together. Keith Hunt)
 

CRITICISM

Critics of these conspiracy theories say they are a form of
conspiracism common throughout history after a traumatic event in
which conspiracy theories emerge as a mythic form of explanation.
204  A related criticism addresses the form of research on which
the theories are based. Thomas W. Eagar, an engineering professor
at MIT, suggested they "use the 'reverse scientific method'. They
determine what happened, throw out all the data that doesn't fit
their conclusion, and then hail their findings as the only
possible conclusion." Eagar's criticisms also exemplify a common
stance that the theories are best ignored. "I've told people that
if the argument gets too mainstream, I'll engage in the debate."
According to him, this happened when Steve Jones, a physics
professor at Brigham Young University took up the issue. 205
Michael Shermer, writing in Scientific American, said: "The
mistaken belief that a handful of unexplained anomalies can
undermine a well-established theory lies at the heart of all
conspiratorial thinking. All the evidence for a 9/11 conspiracy
falls under the rubric of this fallacy. Such notions are easily
refuted by noting that scientific theories are not built on
single facts alone but on a convergence of evidence assembled
from multiple lines of inquiry." 206

Scientific American, 207  Popular Mechanics, 208 and The
Skeptic's Dictionary 209  have published articles that rebut
various 9/11 conspiracy theories. Popular Mechanics has published
a book entitled "Debunking 9/11 Myths" that expands upon the
research first presented in the article. 210  In the foreword for
the book Senator John McCain wrote that blaming the U.S.
government for the events "mars the memories of all those lost on
that day" and "exploits the public's anger and sadness. It shakes
Americans' faith in their government at a time when that faith is
already near an all-time low. It trafficks in ugly, unfounded
accusations of extraordinary evil against fellow Americans."  211

Der Spiegel dismissed 9/11 conspiracy theories as a "panoply of
the absurd", stating "as diverse as these theories and their
adherents may be, they share a basic thought pattern: great
tragedies must have great reasons." 212  David Ray Griffin has
published a book entitled "Debunking 9/11 Debunking: An Answer to
Popular Mechanics and Other Defenders of the Official Conspiracy
Theory,"  213 [citation needed] and Jim Hoffman has written an
article called "popular mechanics assault on 9/11 truth" where he
attacks the methods Popular Mechanics uses in forming their
arguments. 214 [citation needed]

Journalist Matt Taibbi, in his book "The Great Derangement,"
discusses 9/11 conspiracy theories as symptomatic of what he
calls the "derangement" of American society; a disconnection from
reality due to widespread "disgust with our political system",161

Drawing a parallel with the Charismatic movement, he argues that
both "chose to battle bugbears that were completely idiotic,
fanciful, and imaginary," instead of taking control of their own
lives. 161  While critical, Taibbi explains that 9/11 conspiracy
theories are different from "Clinton-era black-helicopter
paranoia", and constitute more than "a small, scattered group of
nutcases [...] they really were, just as they claim to be, almost
everyone you meet." 161  Taibbi also argued that 9/11 conspiracy
theorists form "completely and utterly retarded" narratives to
explain the attacks because of "defiant unfamiliarity with the
actual character of America's ruling class". 161

Historian Kenneth J. Dillon argues that 9/11 conspiracy theories
represent an overly easy target for skeptics and that their
criticisms obfuscate the underlying issue of what actually
happened if there wasn't a conspiracy. He suggests that the
answer is criminal negligence on the part of the president and
vice president, who were repeatedly warned, followed by a
cover-up conspiracy after 9/11. 215  This was expanded upon by
columnist Matt Mankelow writing for the Socialist Workers Online.
He concludes that 9/11 truthers while "desperately trying to
legitimately question a version of events" end up playing into
the hands of the neoconservatives they are trying to take down by
creating a diversion. Mankelow noted that this has irritated many
people who are politically left wing.  216

David Aaronovitch, a columnist for The Times, in his book
entitled "Voodoo Histories: The Role of the Conspiracy Theory in
Shaping Modern History" that was published in May 2009, claimed
that the theories strain credulity. 94  Aaronovitch also charged
that 9/11 conspiracy theorists have exaggerated the expertise of
those supporting their theories, and noted that 9/11 conspiracy
theorists including David Ray Griffin cross cite each other. 217


IN THE POLITICAL ARENA

Former Canadian Liberal Party leader Stephane Dion forced a
candidate from Winnipeg, Lesley Hughes, to terminate her campaign
after earlier writings from Hughes surfaced in which Hughes wrote
that U.S., German, Russian and Israeli intelligence officials
knew about the 9/11 attacks in advanc. 218/219  Earlier, Peter
Kent, Deputy Editor of Global Television Network News and
Conservative Party candidate in the 2008 Canadian election, had
called for Hughes's resignation saying that the 9/11 truth
movement is "one of Canada's most notorious hatemongering fringe
movements" composed of "conspiracy theorists who are notorious
for holding anti-Semitic views." 220  On June 16, 2009, Hughes
sued Kent, the Canadian Jewish Congress, the B'Nai Brith of
Canada and four senior members of the two organizations alleging
the anti-Semitic allegations were untrue and defamatory and
ruined her career. 221  Later another Conservative Party
candidate called for the leader of the New Democratic Party to
fire a candidate for her pro 9/11 truth views. 222

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, described the 9/11 attacks
on the Twin Towers as a "suspect event"  223  and suggests that
the Bush Administration was involved in 9/11. 224/225

In 2008 calls for the resignation of Richard Falk, the special
rapporteur on human rights in the Palestinian territories for the
United Nations, were partially based on his support investigating
the validity of 9/11 conspiracy theories. 226


In February 2009, Aymeric Chauprade (fr), a professor of
geopolitics at CID military college in Paris, was fired by French
Defence Minister Herve Morin for writing a book entitled
"Chronicle of the Clash of Civilizations" that espoused 9/11
conspiracy theories. 227

In September 2009 Van Jones, an adviser to US President Barack
Obama, resigned after his signature on a 2004 petition calling
for an investigation into whether government officials
deliberately allowed the 9/11 attacks to occur and other
controversial statements came to light drawing criticism. Van
Jones said he was a victim of a smear campaign, adding that he
does not currently, nor ever has agreed with that theory. 228

9/11 conspiracy theorist critic David Aaronovitch claims the
popularity of 9/11 conspiracy theories has hurt the War on
Terror. According to Aaronovitch, because a significant portion
of educated Pakistanis believe that George W. Bush brought the
towers down, dealing with the Taliban is difficult "because they
actually don't believe the fundamental premise on which the war
against terror was waged". 229

The 9/11 truth movement became an issue in the 2010 Texas
Gubernatorial Republican primary when candidate Debra Medina
replied when asked by Glenn Beck about US government involvement
in the 9/11 attacks: "I think some very good questions have been
raised in that regard, There are some very good arguments, and I
think the American people have not seen all of the evidence
there, so I have not taken a position on that." After being
criticized for the remarks by opposing candidates, Medina stated
that she has never been a 9/11 truth movement member and believes
the twin towers were attacked by Muslim terrorists. 230/231

(As you can see, there is a conspiracy theory for just about ever
shocking event in history. To the conspiracy geeks nothing is as
it looks on the surface. That would be just too simple a life for
conspiracy advocates - life cannot for them be as simple as good
verses evil - wrong verses right - evil fanatics doing horrible
killings to innocent people. For them that is too simple of life
in a good and bad world; for them it cannot be that simple; for
them there has to be a "conspiracy" behind all horrid events -

                         .........................


I have presented a good length study on this subject, as it was
needful to do so, for many Christians have swallowed the ideas
of the "conspiracy" theology, and I use the word "theology" for
the conspiracy leaders act and teach as if it a theology of
religion - they dream and talk about it night and day it seems.

Those who are dischanted with any government of the world (and
for sure there is much to be dischanted about in all human
governments), also seem to be people who will graspe on to
conspiracy theories, as they already are prone to not only
distrusting their government, but accepting it is so evil that
any amount of evil it can bring forth, including inventing some
complicated attacks on its own people, through an elaberate "pay
off" scheme involving literally hundreds of people, bought off to
lie, cry, and die, on the day of 9/11 and for months afterwards.

The reader should by now have seen that such a plan involving
hundreds of people, would be impossible to bring about let alone
continue for the rest of the lives of those who would have had to
have been "bought off." 

It should be obvious to the reader that such a killing conspiracy
by the USA and Britain, to be able to start a war in the Middle
East, over "oil" and "fanatical Islam religion" was never needed;
for all that was required to start such a war was the famous
phrase "weapons of mass destruction in Iraq" as the USA and
Britain did use to justify going to war in Iraq and Afghanistan.

It is beyond common logical sense to assume other nations, like
Canada, (who have their own secret services) would not have
uncovered the conspiracy plan by the USA and Britain, and hence
brought it to light, and fully refused to help the USA and
Briatin by sending their armies into battle in the Middle East,
knowing many of their soldiers would be killed. Such doing would
be political death, for such a conspiracy by the USA and Britain
would never be able to sustain itself for the rest of the lives
of all who would have had to have been behind such a conspiracy,
amounting to hundreds of people being "bought off." 

There was nothing in the life of the USA and Britain in 2001,
nothing in the life of industry and the averge citizen, where
"oil" was a huge problem to obtain, and was threatening the very
existance of the way of life in the Western world. The Kuwait oil
fields were open. The South American oil fields were open. The
Canadian oil fields were booming along. The Gulf of Mexico oil
drilling was not in danger. The oil drilling off the coast of New
Foundland, Canada, was going well. Oil from the North Sea of
Britain was functioning. The "oil sands" of Northern Alberta,
Canada, was getting going, with enough oil they say for North
America for 100 years.

There was absolutely NO oil crisis for the USA or Britain.
Developing a conspiracy plan for 9/11 and so go to war over oil,
in 2001, is so crazy an idea, it has to come from watching too
many "The Three Stooges" movies of yesterday.

As for the Islamic fanatics and wanting to make war with them.
Well that simply took the USA and Britain shouting out enough
times "weapons of mass destruction in Iraq" and the war was on -
it did not take inventing some crazy 9/11 attacks on its own
people, to start such a war with the lunatic fringe of Islam.

I hope this study has turned around the mind-set that even some
Christians have gotten into with the "conspiracy theories" of
9/11. I pray such people will have come to realize that 9/11
conspiracy teachers are as nutty and deverse (not all agreeing
with each other) as the Christian theology teachers are over what
the Bible is supposed to teach. Most of them are deverse and
nutty also.

Jesus said that His disciples would KNOW THE TRUTH and the TRUTH
would set them FREE!!

I PRAY THAT YOU ARE TRULY FREE!  FREE FROM FALSE RELIGION AND
FREE FROM CONSPIRACY IDEAS AND THE TEACHERS OF BOTH DECEPTIONS!
