No, I don't. Our government/intelligence agencies have been doing it for centuries. Since, as far back at least, Francis Walsingham - Elizabeth I's spymaster. Those professions, politics and intelligence, attract psychopaths. People who don't recognise limits to what they can do to achieve their ends. And they've got allies in the military-industrial complex, that Eisenhower warned everyone to beware of. Bigger atrocity = bigger backlash = bigger profits.
I'm not saying they definitely were involved, but it's a possibility that needs considering.

It is indeed but in the case of 9/11 I contend that it would be far more likely for a few powerful individuals in the know to monitor progress and simply decide whether to let it happen or not based on odds for success at achieving their own ends. As has been pointed out it wouldn't have taken very much. It is very difficult to gauge what is more personally shocking, a building far away hit by a plane with thousands of faceless people killed or a single individual being beheaded. It doesn't take a lot to spread FUD and cause a reaction. It often doesn't even have to be true.

And we should trust one guy, who has several 9/11 "truth" sites, should we?

Maybe we should also believe any one of the following sites too?

dugan, thanks for opening this thread, i learned a lot.
i think it would be naive to fully believe in any explanation (official or not), but "Something else" seems to be the sanest answer.

The ownership of that website is irrelevant, what is important is the evidence presented on it. Has anyone disproved the existence of traces of thermite in the ruins?

Actually ownership gives insight to bias if not full blown agenda. The major organizer of of disbelief in Natural Collapse (including proponents of controlled demolition) is Richard Gage and his organizations. There is no direct evidence of thermite. Disbelievers claim that tiny melted steel spheroids are evidence of thermite (and not the original construction welders). If you want detailed further discussion to decide what is and what is not actually in evidence please see any or all of the transcripts or videos of the Gage vs/ Mohr debates. They are readily available as are the backgrounds and lists of studies of each man.

Not my problem. It's his problem to convince me that he didn't just make it up.

Seriously, you should know by now that this is, in fact, how the burden of proof works.

No, not really. I'm certainly not working for anyone, and I think it is rather interesting that "Natural Collapse" is implicitly described as the "right answer" such that someone has to sow "disbelief" in it, and that there must be an "agenda."

The frank reality of the situation is that, even on that day and the days immediately following, I looked at what I saw, put two and two together, and formed my own opinion ... an opinion which has never wavered since that fateful day. It never will. Furthermore, I know that I am not alone.

"How are they gonna 'cover story' this one?" I wondered. And when the story came out, I thought, "Oh, you have got to be kidding."

To me, there is exactly one explanation: demolition. Three times in a row, and perfect. This is my own self-drawn conclusion, and it will never change nor be changed. No one gave it to me.

I'm not a demolition expert. I don't pretend to know the state of the art in high explosives nor in detonation techniques. I can plainly see what they did, but I don't know how they did it. I don't feel the slightest need to know, technically speaking, "how they did it." And furthermore, I don't expect to ever know "who they are."

There are many gaps in my understanding of what happened, and I do not wish for these gaps to ever be filled. As I have stated, these are things that I believe should remain Secret. Neither do I fault the existence of a cover story, or ask for one whit more. "Yes, you certainly know more than what you are telling. This is War, not 'an act of terrorism.' Keep your mouth shut."

Now that we finally know where you stand in this debate; why is it "naive" (as you keep saying) to believe in "any explanation"?

Ah, no it isn't, mate. It's HIGHLY relevant, as I'd like to be able to trust the source of said "evidence". Otherwise it's just silly to believe anyone, wouldn't you say?

Has anyone PROVED it?? If so, SHOW US the prove! And NOT from a questionable 9/11 "truth" site either!

Anyone care to rebut this? anyone?
