I've done some research into CDs, Pepi. It's not a CD, or at least it doesn't look like one to me now. If it did, then I might be on the road to
buying into the MIHOP agenda.
It looks like a building collapsing, after extensive structural weakening from impact damage and fire. I know you can quote that Dutch bloke who says
he thinks it looks like a CD, but he does seem to be in a very small minority of explosive and demolition experts, most of whom do not share his view.
It seems his opinion is almost certainly a misjudgment.
I remain open-minded, but am not going to accept the conspiracy agenda just because it might support my political prejudices.
In all my travels in the Arab world in recent years, I never met anyone who believes that 9/11 was not carried out by Al Qaida. They have too much
direct experience of AQ operations in Saudi, Egypt, Jordan and Iraq to think that the US Govt or agencies within would possibly be capable of it. They
live cheek-by-jowel with militant Islamic sympathizers and lifelong, pathological America-haters on a daily basis. So many westerners have been
murdered by these people in Egypt, Saudi, Indonesia and other places. They KNOW 9/11 was an AQ op, and I don't see anyone convincing them otherwise.
Some of them are proud of it, and look forward to 'the next time soon, when the Moslems will teach America another lesson'. Really.
Conspiracy-theorists in the west live in a kind of bubble, insulated from reality. They can afford the luxury of generating conspiracy theories about
their own government planning & carrying out terrorist attacks and blaming them on the Arabs because they just don't understand enough about militant
jihadist Wahabism and their murderous, uncompromising agenda.
The key about 'controlled demolitions' is evidence, not what something 'looks like'. As you know, I am no expert. If any evidence is produced for
the presence of any explosive charges, or any witness who can claim any knowledge of same ever emerges, then we might have something. But in six
years, there is no evidence.
I find it frankly not credible that if demo charges had been used, there would be no evidence AT ALL. Rescue workers were in the building in
considerable numbers, and cleared up the debris afterwards. Apparently, not one of them noticed any demo charges, explosives or wires. Are they all in
some kind of huge conspiracy? Makes no sense to me. That the building collapse 'looks like' a CD to the uninformed does not mean that's what it
I remain with the evidence, my close personal experience of militant Islamic jihadists and with gut instinct. I will not be swayed by fantasy, because
some kind of evil conspiracy can be manufactured to support a dubious political agenda.
I also have to say that watching '9/11 Mysteries' convinced me beyond doubt that the conspiracy movement contains elements (like the film makers)
who have absolutely no interest in truth. They are pushing their own political agenda, and will lie, distort and misrepresent the facts ruthlessly in
order to push their own propaganda. Shame on them.
