Wowza, excellent replies you guys....Thanks a bunch.

I have to admit, there is much more than just 9/11 driving me here. It's kind of like once you realize that this goes way beyond 9/11, and into the darkest corners of the elite- it sort of all piles up in me, including 9/11 and out comes a thread like this. And in that rage and frustration I can forget that everyone does have a right to their own opinion.

But what is worse is when you are attempting to talk about 9/11 with someone who is clueless about all the work that has been done by guys like Craig Ranke, Domenick, SPreston, Rob Balsamo, Richard Gage, Steven Jones, and even guys like my friend Phil Jayhan at, Dave Von Kleist, and Dylan Avery.

These kinds of people, who won't research jack, sit there and call us "nuts," "wackos," "unpatriotic," etc, etc. And Sean Hannity has got to be one of the worst at this. I fume every time I hear him say stuff like that. Glenn Beck used to do the same thing, although he appears to be wisening up a bit lately.

My answer to people like that is how can thousands of respected professionals, veterans, architects, engineers, pilots and so many more all be questioning the official story if there really was nothing to all this research that has been done?? They are all "nuts" and "unpatriotic" too???


Ace, I really do appreciate you helping to bring me back to center on this. It helps me maintain, when really, I just want to lose it.

My what a lovely mound of generalized BS sprinkled with generalized attack propaganda you have here............... Oh I just love when people who generalize soo much try to tell me they are apt investigators and know "the truth".
Thanks for the laugh though.
Seriously though, what's next? Tell people that if they believe the *dum dum dum* official story, oooooooo, *pauses in time for shock and horror ro pass* are the only ones that get Swine Flu????

Um, ya.
These are the same people who made it so your kids will be lucky
if they have jobs and stuff to eat or even a habitable environment
to live in! Good job! Be proud. Give more money(and your soul)
to them!

Based on chemical analysis of WTC structural steel residue, a Brigham Young University physics professor has identified the material as Thermate. Thermate is the controlled demolition explosive thermite plus sulfur. Sulfur cases the thermite to burn hotter, cutting steel quickly and leaving trails of yellow colored residue.

Well, you to because I do enjoy reading your threads even though I do not agree that often. I am NOT a sheep. I am NOT someone who did not research
nor did not read all I could on this subject.

However, it is hard to read and comprehend some of the statements that are made that were propagated by out of context remarks or only part of a statement.

9/11 Official Story - Contains numerous FACTS that can be verified in publications and through the Commission Report. There are also multiple other books on the subject.

9/11 Truth Movement - Conjecture, Opinion and altered videos. A true Lack of evidence regarding explosives, missiles at the Pentagon and the relocation of passengers. A small percentage of a large majority follow these revelations who include FD, PD and scientists as well as other architectural professionals. However, why are they not published in REAL journals and not psuedo peer reviewed articles that are often times dismissed.

In the 7 years since 9/11, they have continued to find body parts in NY on an almost daily basis but still no explosive evidence. None.

So, in review, Being patriotic means one thing, that you THINK like a patriot. The definition of a patriot is one who loves his or her country and supports its authority and interests.

I love my country and support it authority but I do not always agree with their actions. This does not make me non-patriotic, but a free thinker. One who can come to conclusion on my own.

Details really dont matter! Its all posturing!
Like wishing it were bigger and could last longer!

It's always the smallest details that carry the largest impact!

At 21:54 GMT on 9/11/2001 the BBC announced that WTC 7 had collapsed. There was just one problem with this news: WTC 7 did not collapse until 22:20 GMT.

The Pentagon was hit at approximately 9:45 Eastern Time, so we're talking about an hour and 40 minutes between the time they knew there was a hijacking and the time the Pentagon was hit. That hijacked plane was flying west from Boston. So they knew it could have been flying to Washington, right? Why didn't they put planes in the air?

Third of Americans suspect 9-11 government conspiracy

Why weren't standard operating procedures for dealing with hijacked airliners followed that day? Answer: On May 31, 2001, Donald Rumsfeld signed a sweeping change in those SOP which, among other things, required his prior authorization before fighter interceptors could be scrambled.... Why weren't the Pentagon's extensive missile batteries and air defenses activated during the attack? Answer: The attack jet was a modified military aircraft with a "friendly" transponder beacon,
which Pentagon anti-aircraft systems were programmed to ignore, as opposed to a "foe" beacon which those systems were correctly programmed to shoot down......

Fine, I will try this again. True American, do you have anything to contribute other than a personal attack? Can you rebuke anything that I have posted?

Calling those who feel that terrorist attacked us on 9/11 as unpatriotic is unpatriotic in its own sense. In the days following 9/11, our country came together as a, white, Christian, Muslim, all to denounce that had occurred on that day. Remember how hard it was to but a flag? Anyone? It was not a false sense of patriotic fare, it was a wake up call to America that we, as well as many other nations, are vulnerable.

Those who feel that there country perpetrated 9/11 are the ones, by definition, that are unpatriotic because, as the definition states, they do not love their country but wish to promote it as an evil entity, bring it down and make others hate it as much as they do.

So, in conclusion, this OP did nothing but show the true non patriotic stance of those who choose to still believe that Bush pushed a button and controlled the jets that hit the towers(this is not a literal statement folks)

Well, nice to see the mods are on top of THEIR game.

I suppose having the tables turned on one's self does tend to upset, doesn't it?

Well too damn bad. I am sick of being labeled unpatriotic because I can see through the official story lies. Not through blind devotion to the government line, but through careful attention and years of reading and contemplation about the subject. If I was alone in this, I'd be more apt to shut my trap. But clearly I am not. And I object to being called a troll, much less king of the 9/11 trolls at ATS. I feel I have done my part to contribute here at ATS, across many subjects, not just 9/11. In fact, I have contributed the LEAST to the 9/11 forum here out of all my threads.

Ok, self-preservation activated: must put esdad on ignore.

Im starting to see deeper matters. i mean theres no reason not to care about everything we see in life on a deep spiritual need to be with another in experiences of life. It is a matter of the times they were raised, what kind of house they grew up in and their modern state now. Many are ex-military or police, or they are just ver ystubborn or time consumed to even care. Which as we espouse is where the people perceivably we are discussing, want everyone so they can do what an equal many others believe they are doing.
deliberate swindles.

then you have the people who just follow the winner, which means they follow the money. Now while many in that arena know well where they stand in life, and many hate it, they also love it. And in that mindset just dont want the pain of seeing constantly where they feel they must stay because of a past limmeny snickets of events leading to there innocuous meeting of a dark world of well connected international whatevers.

i define unpatriotic as a word that means unwilling to do the right thing in the right measure. Or ignorance to achieve such failure. Patriotism is a daily activity. and cannot be defined as a nuance.

Yes, the mods are on top of their game to keep these forums clean. I apologized to them for what I wrote in the post but that I still have conviction in what I expressed however it should have been just to you.

Sorry if you are tired of being labeled unpatriotic but in what you state, by definition, you are. You can create an opinion but not sway a fact or decide you have a different meaning to a word or phrase if it is fact.

No tables were turned either, i just decided to defend myself and this is not the correct forum. Putting someone with opposite views then you on ignore further exemplifies close mindedness. I have been attacked, battered, gang attacked by multiple posters but I do not put them on ignore. Even those you do not agree with will sometimes bring to light something you never recognized. It is part of learning. You may not like you teacher in school but 99% of the time they were right.

I am in this post because I do not believe the official story, but believe what I saw, what relatives and friends saw that day and what I have researched and read. Please stop telling me I love my government blindly...I love my country.

trust me, if the day came when someone, anyone, came forward and said I have a blasting cap or I have audio or video of anything that was not circumstantial, I would then have to admit defeat and then pursue other angles against those who did pull this off.

The problem is that 9/11 truth has stalled because there is NO new evidence. Trust me when I say if there was ANYTHING that could implicate the government, the Obama administration would release it along with all the other documents they have.

I am a patriot because I love my country and feel blessed to wake up each day and not live in Afghanistan, Lebanon or Venezuela where i have no rights...especially to post my views in a forum such as this.

Star, Flag ... my favorite post in my brief ATS history ....

Its gonna be tough to turn the tables on the brainwashing machine and get the idea thru to people that if they do NOT take another look at 911 then THEY are the ones who are UNPATRIOTIC.

What we need are ATS talking heads on TV that call people who don't investigate 911 "crackpots" and "loons"

Then we can get operatives to infiltrate the "Ignorance" movement and make posts on blogs that make sense and lead in the right direction so that they get confused...start to question ... and finally see thru the media smokescreen.

I truly admire the OPs sentiment and passion here. Him speak truth.

Even more absurd is that fact that not a single official inquiry has attempted to respond to, discredit, or refute the questions that have been raised. On the contrary, both the American government and the complicit media have dealt with the every single challenge to the 9/11 explanations in two ways. They either totally ignore them or dismiss them out of hand as ridiculous conspiracy theories. Most of the well-researched and revealing findings by independent investigators are unknown to the vast majority of Americans.

Time and time again, when I come across close-minded Bush supporters, I witness the effects of an unexplainable phenomenon: a highly dangerous variation of HIV – a condition I call the Hypocrisy & Illogic Virus. Strangely, the most severe symptoms of this condition seem to manifest themselves during any and all discussions of the events of 9/11,..
In fact, we’ll take it all back and admit the errors of our ways IF you do something first. Show us YOUR proof....The facts about 9/11 that has been uncovered are dismissed by people who apply unbelievably skewed logic to their opposing argument. They believe a story when the only proof they use to validate the story is the story itself. That’s it! All they know is what they have been told. News reports, video, witnesses, whistle blowers, their own eyes and even common sense contradict their beliefs. Still, these people continue to accuse the researchers of being either crazy or traitorous. What kind of convoluted reasoning has infected such a large segment of the nation?

This is a battle for truth. It’s not a debate over conflicting philosophies. It is a battle between those who are searching for facts and those who choose to deny that a search is necessary....

The level of denial and resistance can only be explained by understanding a very basic human response: sometimes truth is too painful for people to deal with. In this case, the perpetrators of 9/11 understood that most Americans could not permit themselves to consider the involvement of people within their own government in the dastardly attacks of that day. They could never allow themselves to even consider such a possibility, even though people within the administration had openly professed that just such an event would benefit their cause!

History has proven the U.S. government has repeatedly lied and murdered people, even their own citizens to further what in essence is the gain of a relatively small number of individuals connected to private corporations and the privately held Federal Reserve Bank who runs our government.
Deny ignorance and promote the reality of living
in the land of the greed, home of the fraid'!!

Also, what I find humorous, is I do NOT believe the official story but I still am outcast but the Truthers and others...

You see, I feel that we blew that plane out of the sky in Pennsylvania. The reason that the 9/11 movement is so large, is to keep those who are investigating away from the truth in Shanksville. There was no stand down order and the timeline proves it. The Air Force had ample time to find, track and shoot down 93. This is a Classic case of deflection. With 93 they had "roll on" and then a quick movie and then...nothing to see here...move along...and everyone attacked WTC 7. This is a conspiracy folks.

Does this make me semi patriotic in the eyes of those who do not believe anything of the original story?

Also, lets look at what ignorance is since the word is tossed around so often.

Ignorance is the state in which a person lacks knowledge, is unaware of something or chooses to subjectively ignore information. This should not be confused with being unintelligent, as one's level of intelligence and level of education or general awareness are not the same. The word "Ignorant" is an adjective describing a person in the state of being unaware. The term may be used specifically (e.g. "One can be an expert in math, and totally ignorant of history.") or generally (e.g. "an ignorant person.") -- although the second use is used less as a descriptive and more as an imprecise personal insult.

Ignorance is not on par with intelligence. It means, as it states, to be unaware. Even my avatar profile shows I am aware.
.I am quite aware of my surroundings as well as how the government works...secret testing, secret wars and torture..they were all around in history before the CIA folks.

So, put down the laptops, get off Google video and read a book....

I'm calling straight up BS on this. I wanna see these altered videos right now. And I want proof that they've been altered by the 9/11 truth movement and not just your opinion.

A true Lack of evidence regarding explosives

Again I'm calling BS. There are 3 main types of evidence that can be used in a court of law: physical, media (audio/photo/video), and witness testimony.

Here's the photo/video aspect of an example of explosives used on 9/11:

Then there's the hundreds of witness testimony where they saw, heard and felt the explosions and the flashes associated with those explosions. The witnesses included fire, police, news reporters, and WTC survivors.

Now just based on that alone is proof enough. Courts have convicted people for murder without a physical murder weapon or a body, so the physical part of evidence isn't necessarily needed.

However, it's been shown more than once in a lab and verified by more than one scientist that an incendiary chemical has been found in the WTC dust, and that would fill the physical evidence part as well.

Now, without finding the actual, physical devices, I don't know how much more proof of explosives you really need. A part of me thinks that even if a few devices were found, you would still make up some excuse to explain them away so that you wouldn't have to subscribe to the 9/11 conspiracy theories.

Debunkers keep saying that, but you have no proof to back up that claim. 9/11 truth movement, however does have hundreds of architects, engineers, scientists, physicists, fire and police officials as well as government officials from the U.S. and abroad, not to mention a good percentage of 9/11 families that support 9/11 truth and those list of names are open to the public. Until you produce a list of names from the professions you described that far surpass the names that support the 9/11 truth movement, your statement is of a biased opinion only.

alright esdad, I took you off ignore. And mostly because you are a long time member here. Hate to do that to one of our own. But you better damn well take that stupid avatar you created off the ATS media portal NOW. That's total BS. If you don't you are going back on my list for good.

I don't understand you man. You are saying that you are defending yourself, and yet in the same breath say you don't believe the official story? And are still insisting that I am unpatriotic? Make up your mind, will ya?

Um, might as well have been speaking Swahili friend. Can't expect rational arguments from people that write and partcipipate in self congraltory BS attack threads like this. "Their tribe smart and good! Your tribe stupid and bad!" pretty much sums up the mentality.

I did not state the 9/11 truth movement altered the videos, I stated the truth movement and those who believe watch and post altered videos. Do a quick Google search for any 9/11 truth movement videos and see what you get. I you want to get all legal with me and tell me what you need as a defense, please make your opening argument a little better than this. Let me clarify further....

1. Those who believe the published truth about 9/11 are grouped into those who believe the official story.

2. Those who do not believe and offer conspiracy to the WTC collapse are Truthers or those seeking the truth.

This is guilt by association and there can only be 2 sides. Sorry.

Hundreds of witnesses perceived they heard or saw explosives that day. Some described the noises as an explosions. I have read the accounts. I have read the stories. I have watched those videos hoping to hear something that maybe could make me believe....nothing.

Also, if there is no physical evidence and you are convicted of murder, you had a PD or a crummy lawyer. Money talks and public Defenders land you in jail....

As far as those who give us the official story and those who torch paint chips as evidence of nano thermite, lets compare just a few experts from the Truth movement and a few people from NIST and the 9/11 Commision.

David Ray Griffin - theologist vs John Hall - 2005 Nobel prize winner for Physics

Steven Jones - out of work professor vs Prof Hansch 2005 Nobel prize winner in Physics

James Fetzer - philosopher vs. Jun Ye - his team just created a new form of matter with ultra cold materials.

Hmmm....this looks like the Yankees vs the Devil Rays circa 2003...Still wanna call BS?
