Has anyone ever considered the fact that maybe the official story is true, or as close to the truth as those investigating it can get?

1. How can you discern what is the "official" story? Is it the soundbites released through complicit media as events unfold, that are varied from day to day to muddy the waters? Or is it the result of an Official Enquiry 10-15 years after the events? "Official" doesn't really stand up unless you are happy to assemble a series of often contradictory facts.
2. Citing the "official story" about why the Bush administration-infected US led a "coalition of the willing" to invade Iraq, are you happy that it was to protect the national security of the United States from the imminent threat of immediately deployable Weapons of Mass Destruction?

What you speak of is nothing more than a justifiable reaction to the massive influx of members who aim to ridicule and discredit the conspiracy theorists among us. Even those who merely entertain ideas like those you mention are trampled down by closed minded skeptics.
This has been going on in the real world for years, and has now encroached on a website originally intended as a safe haven where conspiracy theories could be taken seriously by those who took an interest in them. AboveTopSecret.com was, and is, a conspiracy site. And the conspiracy theorists have every right to "talk down" to those who invade their territory with malicious intent.
People should be able to express there ideas and opinions without being subject to abuse and ridicule. You don't need absolute proof to entertain an idea.
