I am creating this thread as a place for those that think that the planes did in fact hit the buildings, did in fact think the buildings fell down minus any sort of DC and more or less see those that soo enthusiastically run off the deep end with the "truther" movement as ultimately pointless escapades in overboard paranoia. With some "truth" seeking authors that are really only looking for the $$$.
This is a place to talk evidence and hopefully the above mentioned will just let it be, rather than sink it or drag it off into silliness as so often happens with any dissenting voice.

But do think that there was something fishy about how 9/11 went down.
Kinda like here: Simple and Elegant Plan (9/11) Thread

1) The fact that there just so happened to be a "training exercise" that day so no fighters were scrambled in what is supposed to be one of the more secure air corridors in the US.

2) The fact that Bin Laden is an old asset left over from the cold war and the Bush/Bin Laden family connections.

3) The fact that the NIST seems to be trying to hide piss poor construction and materials on the Twin Towers.

4) Why at WTC you got pictures leaked of ground zero when it was supposedly on "lock down" but with Shanksville you get none that I know of.

5) Someone once mentioned that a hacker said something shortly before 9/11 about a unprotected backdoor to the pentagon's network. If you are that person please post.

6) Etc.

Got an alternative theory. POST IT!

How bout the fact that the bin laden confession tape looked nothing like the guy. and the imposter was wearing a ring, which i believe is against ladens religion.
Or how bout the fact that the hijackers that supposedly flew the planes were magically found alive and well.
Or the fact that firefighters who had helped look for black boxes found some at ground zero yet the official story was none were found.
Or there was no damage left from the wings and no wings were recovered from the dc attack.
Or ppl were being pulled from the bottom floors of the towers including the basement, not the top,with injuries from explosives and saying there were bombs down there.
I could go on all day, but i will leave you with those to begin with

Or how about your exactly what I was talking about not being welcome.
Plenty of other threads for you to go play in.

As I do not wish to get dragged into the pointless pursuit of pointing out the wholes in your theories but would however like to talk about others.

LOL a dictatorship post?

I'm posting this just because you said not to.

Please explain how the tilting top of WTC, which was under angular momentum, did not continue its angular momentum and fall in the path of least resistance as physics says it should?

Pretty simple question that has yet to be answered by anyone who believes the official story. In fact the official story doesn't even attempt to explain it, i.e. NIST report.

Do you think global collapse was inevitable once initiated, and how did the buildings, all 3, not meet resistance of undamaged columns and fasteners (welds, nut and bolts)?

Unless these questioned are answered nothing else really matters.

Did NIST look for evidence of the WTC towers being brought down by controlled demolition? Was the steel tested for explosives or thermite residues? The combination of thermite and sulfur (called thermate) "slices through steel like a hot knife through butter.

NIST STATEMENT: "NIST did not test for the residue of these compounds in the steel."


Why didnt NIST test for these compounds, when people on the ground were adament that explosives were going off in and around the buildings?

One must really wonder why certain people are soo threatened by this post they feel the need to troll it.

As I said. I am not here to continue the pointless pursuit of arguing with you people. Unless someone me and the people that agree with me discussing our thoughts somehow threatens you. Which it obviously does. Then you really got to ask yourself why. But eh what do I know.

No one is threatened at all.

You stated in your thread: "This is a place to talk evidence".

So we are talking evidence.

I would like to hear your thoughts on AROKS and my post. Please refute the FACTS.

It's easy for me now,

You compare the official version with the conspiracy version.

You then compare the conspiracy theories with the disinformation conspiracy theories. Which are which is legitimate question.

Once you put all these together you find a common ground: eg dates, times, witnesses, evidence.

Like a court of law you should then really have two sides to the story, and then an untainted jury (is this possible now?) to decide the outcome.

Pretty simple really, yet it is strange with the amount of people that want something like this to happen (in a free democratic society) can not get what they want. I often wonder what would constitute a movement large enough to let this happen? 1000 people? 10000? 100000? If new evidence is bought forward does this not warrent a new investigation? How can one legally propose this? I'm sure any laywer reading could help on that answer.

The basic idea is both believers and non believers would then have their day in court to decide once and for all what exactly happened on September the 11th 2001 in New York.

Dude it's you who is ignoring the facts. I brought up facts and you have no idea how to answer how those facts came about because it's not in your precious NIST report, and you won't find it on any of your debunker websites. So you have no idea how to answer my questions so you pretend it doesn't matter or just ignore it.

You are afraid of the truth and this post of yours makes that very obvious. I just don't understand why you so blindly believe what we've been told when there is so much evidence that proves that the collapses were not natural.

Want to prove me wrong? Then explain what happened to WTC 2 as I asked in my other post. If you can't then you have to admit to yourself that something isn't right with what we've been told. Then do some real research instead of just reading what you want to hear on 911myths and the like.

How does this...

End up like this?...

Answer this question in your own words and I'll quit bugging you.
Shouldn't be a problem right? You are convinced of the official story right? You've done your research right? So why is it so hard to answer? And if you can't answer it then why are you so sure it was as we were told?

I have spend more time then I would care to arguing with you so I will not continue it here. You think your right and your information spot on regardless what holes others TRY to show you.

Could you please point out where the tilt of WTC 2 has been explained.

I've been on this forum since 2004 and I have yet to see that question answered.

It's rather telling when someone responds like you have, it shows you are frustrated with the question. Why is that? Because you have no answer for the question? Have you even thought about it? Or does the question make you question what you believe?

I bet if I brought up 'no planes' or 'holograms' you'd be all over it?

If you had an answer you would have posted it. I know you don't want to believe the truth, and will think anything to convince yourself the towers were demolished globally to the ground by office fires.
There were many in WWII Germany that refused to believe there were concentration camps until they were forced to see the truth.
It's Human nature to deny something that is so shocking to their belief system.

If you look honestly at the towers collapses there is no way that they were natural collapses. You can yell and ignore and tell me to go away all you want, but the truth is still there right in front of your face but you refuse to see the obvious. The truth is not going to go away.

It's your patriotic duty to question, however scary the answers might be.

The OP clearly doesn't want facts that support the government conspiracy view. He only wants facts that support the 19 Hijacker conspiracy view.

“Indeed, it almost seems to be a requirement or admission into public discourse to announce that one rejects conspiracy theories. What is the logic behind this thinking? It cannot be that we literally reject the very idea that conspiracies occur. We all accept conspiracy theories of all sorts. We accept a conspiracy theory whenever we believe that two or more people have conspired in secret to achieve some goal, such as to rob a bank, defraud customers, or fix prices … It is false to suggest that those who allege that the attacks occurred because of official complicity are ‘conspiracy theorists’ while those who accept the official account are not. People differ on this issue merely in terms of which conspiracy theory they hold to be true, or at least most probable. According to the official account, the attacks of 9/11 occurred because of a conspiracy among Muslims, with Osama bin Laden being the chief conspirator. Revisionists reject that theory, at least as a sufficient account of what happened, maintaining that the attacks cannot be satisfactorily explained without postulating conspiracy by officials of the US government, at least in allowing the attacks to succeed. The choice, accordingly, is simply between (some version of) the received conspiracy theory and (some version of) the revisionist conspiracy theory.” -David Icke, Alice in Wonderland and the World Trade Center

I did, take a look...

Notice a lack of debunkers in my thread?

LOL I know it's off topic but there is a point to my questioning.
Unless the physics anomalies of that day are answered then how can the debunkers be so sure they're right?

What's the point of arguing 'alternative theories' if the basic physics of the collapses can't be explained?

The debunkers focus on the fringe theories, like 'no planes' etc., because they can be easily refuted, but whenever the hard physics questions are asked they're ignored.

If you're all so sure the collapses were natural then why do you not know how to answer this very important point?

My reason for this is to make it clear that this one point proves, either way, whether the collapses were 'natural' or they had 'help' from another source of energy other than fires and gravity.

If you don't understand this you need to start your research over.

It's like arguing over who, and how, joe bloggs was killed when all the evidence shows it was suicide. In other words pointless.

2) The fact that Bin Laden is an old asset left over from the cold war and the Bush/Bin Laden family connections.

1979-1989 CIA Operation Cyclone, with joint funding from Britain’s MI6, heavily armed and trained over 100,000 Afghani Mujahideen (“holy warriors”) during the Soviet war in Afghanistan. With the help of the Pakistani ISI (Inter-Services Intelligence), billions of dollars were given to create this Islamic army. Selig Harrison from the Woodrow Wilson International Centre for Scholars stated, “The CIA made a historic mistake in encouraging Islamic groups from all over the world to come to Afghanistan. The US provided $3 billion [now many more billion] for building up these Islamic groups, and it accepted Pakistan’s demand that they should decide how this money should be spent … Today that money and those weapons have helped build up the Taliban … [who] are now making a living out of terrorism.”

Perhaps as Harrison stated, the CIA “made a historic mistake” in creating these Jihadists, or perhaps they knew exactly what they were doing. Recently declassified DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) documents prove that the US government was long aware of the ISI’s sponsorship/creation of both the Taliban and Al Qaeda

“The United States has been part and parcel to supporting the Taliban all along, and still is let me add … You have a military government in Pakistan now that is arming the Taliban to the teeth … Let me note; that [US] aid has always gone to Taliban areas … And when people from the outside try to put aid into areas not controlled by the Taliban, they are thwarted by our own State Department … Pakistan [has] initiated a major resupply effort, which eventually saw the defeat, and caused the defeat, of almost all of the anti-Taliban forces in Afghanistan.” -Congressional Rep. Dana Rohrbacher, the House International Relations Committee on Global Terrorism and South Asia, 2000

British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook stated before the House of Commons that “Al Qaeda” is not actually a terrorist group, but a database of international Mujahadden and arms dealers/smugglers used by the CIA to funnel arms, money, and guerrillas. The word “Al Qaeda” itself literally translates to “the database.” Not only did the CIA create the Taliban and Al-Qaeda, they continued funding them right up to the 9/11 attacks blamed on them. For example, four months prior to 9/11, in May, 2001, Colin Powell gave another $43 million in aid to the Taliban.

“Not even the corporate US media could whitewash these facts and so explained it away by alleging that US officials had sought cooperation from Pakistan because it was the original backer of the Taliban, the hard-line Islamic leadership of Afghanistan accused by Washington of harboring Bin Laden. Then the so called ‘missing link’ came when it was revealed that the head of the ISI was the principal financier of the 9/11 hijackers … Pakistan and the ISI is the go between of the global terror explosion. Pakistan's military-intelligence apparatus, which literally created and sponsored the Taliban and Al Qaeda, is directly upheld and funded by the CIA. These facts are not even in dispute, neither in the media nor in government. Therefore when we are told by the neocon heads of the new world order that they are doing everything in their power to dismantle the global terror network what we are hearing is the exact opposite of the truth. They assembled it, they sponsored it and they continue to fund it. As any good criminal should, they have a middleman to provide plausible deniability, that middleman is the ISI and the military dictatorship of Pakistan.” -Steve Watson, “U.S. Intel Officer: Al Qaeda Leadership Allowed to Operate Freely” (

Major Pierre-Henri Bunel, a French military intelligence agent, who was framed and convicted no doubt for daring to raise his voice in December, 2001, said,

“The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al Qaeda. And any informed intelligence officer knows this. But there is a propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an identified entity representing the devil only in order to drive the TV watcher to accept a unified international leadership for a war against terrorism. The country behind this propaganda is the US and the lobbyists for the US war on terrorism are only interested in making money.” (

In a late 1980’s Newsweek article, outspoken opponent of President Bush and recently assassinated Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, told George Bush Sr., “you are creating a Frankenstein,” concerning the growing Islamist movement. She also came out in 2007 to say that Osama Bin Laden was already long dead having been murdered by Omar Sheikh. She was murdered herself a month after the interview, only two weeks before the Pakistani 2008 general elections.

To begin with, most people are unaware that the Bush and bin Laden families have been close friends and colleagues for a long time. Back in 1976 Osama’s older brother Salim bin Laden invested $50,000 in George. W. Bush’s budding Arbusto Energy Company. They met through fellow CIA employee and Bush family friend Jim Bath who handled all the bin Laden family’s American investments. By the late 1970’s the Bush’s and bin Laden’s already owned oil companies and airports together. Larry Klayman, President of Judicial Watch, among others has confirmed that the Bush family also vacations with the bin Ladens and usually stays at their home when they are in Saudi Arabia.

“How many know that the Bush family and the Bin Laden family have long been extremely close? Or that the former head of the family construction business, Salem bin Laden, brother of Osama, was an investor in President Bush's first oil company? Or that an investor in a later Bush company was Khalid bin Mahfouz, an associate of Bin Laden, who was named by the US State Department during the Clinton administration as a funder of the al-Qaeda terrorist network? Or that al-Qaeda was funded into existence by the CIA during the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan? Or that the 'al-Qaeda' tunnel systems in Afghanistan were built by Bin Laden Construction with CIA money funneled through Pakistan military intelligence, the ISI, which is the CIA branch in Pakistan?” -David Icke, “Tales from the Time Loop”

Since the late 1980’s the Bush’s and bin Laden’s have also worked together in the Carlyle Group, Washington DC’s largest private equity firm, which deals in the industries of Aerospace/Defense, Automotive, Consumer/Retail, Energy/Power, Healthcare, Real Estate, Technology, Telecommunications/Media and Transportation. In 1998 and 2000 George Bush Sr. traveled to Saudi Arabia on behalf of the Carlyle Group and met with the bin Laden family. Then on the morning of September 11th, as the planes were heading for the towers, George Bush Sr. actually sat in the Washington Ritz-Carlton hotel at a Carlyle Group meeting with Osama’s brother, Shafig bin Laden! The London Observer reported on this 6/22/02: “On 11 September, while Al-Qaeda's planes slammed into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the Carlyle Group hosted a conference at a Washington hotel. Among the guests of honor was a valued investor: Shafig bin Laden, brother to Osama." The Wall Street Journal later called for Bush Sr. to resign from Carlyle Group. He never did, but for fear of bad publicity, the bin Laden family formally sold their investments back to the firm in October, 2001. They went on national TV calling Osama the black sheep of the family, effectively disowned and washed their hands of responsibility for him. Nowadays Bin Laden Construction still builds most United States military bases in the Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia, including the bases in Iraq.

“The Carlyle Group also has very close links with the bin Laden family, who have been both clients and investors. Father Bush has been a paid consultant to the Bin Laden Group. Reports in the Wall Street Journal say these Carlyle investments have been earning the Bin Laden family some 40% a year on their money since 1995.” -David Icke, “Alice in Wonderland and the World Trade Center” (83)

“The Carlyle Group is the biggest defense contractor on the planet and the majority owners are the Bush family and the bin Laden family. Both families are profiting hundreds of billions of dollars off America’s foreign policy and Carlyle’s earnings continue to rise since 9/11.” -Alex Jones, “911 Descent into Tyranny”

Osama bin Laden was the 17th of 52 sons of construction baron Mohammed bin Laden. Back in 1979 The CIA paid Osama to recruit and train Al-Qaeda fighters. When Bush became CIA director in the 1980’s they recruited Osama, Al-Qaeda, and the Taliban in Afghanistan to run their opium trade. Everything changed however on Dec. 4th, 1997, when American oil barons proposed the Afghanistan oil line to the Taliban who turned it down after demanding too large a share. A BBC headline from that day read, “Representatives of the Taliban are in Texas Visiting the Headquarters of Unicol.” The proposed pipeline was to be built by Halliburton, who’s CEO at the time was none other than Dick Cheney. Shortly after this the media began labeling the Taliban as terrorists.

I generally steer clear of impugning people's motives and ad hominem style attacks but when I read the OP's initial post, the idea that came to mind was, "The Bush administration's explanations of 9/11 have been so lame that maybe the brain trust that goes to work everyday in the bowels of the White House, decided to tap ATS for some kind of line that would at least hold together."

Other than that, as per the OP's instructions, I will go amuse myself elsewhere. Toodle-oo.
