Your own source of information backs up my position rather than yours. If you have an ounce of sense or self-respect you'd apologise for your patronising remarks and your bull# opinions and for citing a source which contradicts your position. You've assumed I'm just another conspiracy theorist. This is a tremendous mistake on your part. Almost as bad as citing a source which contradicts your position.
Now, apologise or face my mother#ing wrath.

How much evidence does 1 person need to show them 911 was an inside job? I cannot believe there are still people out there that blame BL and the middle east..lol Out of all the evidence building 7 screams inside.... anyways.. here's how al Q came to be...
"the base of Jihad" "...apparently as a result of the merger of the overseas branch of Egypt's al-Jihad (EIJ) group, led by Ayman El-Zawahiri, with the groups Bin Laden brought under his control after his return to Afghanistan in the mid-1990s."
Investigations by Spinwatch reveal that a group of freelance terror trackers who promote stories about the threat from violent Islamists have been involved in exaggerating and even fabricating such stories, which they then comment on in the national press and on network television and radio. The group – which has now fallen apart – was centred on freelance spy Glen Jenvey and Conservative Party member Dominic Wightman, who uses the pseudonym 'Whiteman'.
The barrage of stories from official sources and from terror 'experts' suggesting that Britain is under serious and extensive threat from Islamists and that Islam as a religion is particularly prone to extremism has been boosted by some stories that have little basis in fact. These have included:
An alleged attempt to plant a story about terrorist grannies planning to blow themselves up in British supermarkets
An attempt to suggest – quite falsely - that campaigners against the Israeli attack on Gaza were actually planning to target British Jews
The creation of a fake allegedly Islamist website in a bid to entrap suspects.
Spying on Tamil activists in the UK.
A fraudulent fundraising effort in the 1980s which was claimed to be to aid the African National Congress
The group behind these stories – Vigil – is a convenient label for a number of people who are linked on the one hand to elements of the British far right and on the other to networks of neoconservative ideologues in the US and UK seeking to exploit the genuine threat faced by UK citizens - Muslim and non Muslim alike. In this case behind the anodyne label of 'terror expert' there is a story including alleged spying, deception, fraud, assault, and a falling out over money.
The case also highlights:
The controversial newsgathering techniques of The Sun newspaper, currently facing legal questions over its reporting of the alleged terror experts' testimony
the ease with which alleged terror experts can gains access to the most prestigious British broadcasting outlets such as Radio Four and BBC Newsnight
The use of the internet for employing the traditional arts of the agent provocateur including surveillance and virtual stings
The role of the blogosphere in investigating and revealing the use of fake identities - 'sockpuppets' in internet jargon
