I'm not sure where I stand on the 9/11 debate, but after having a conversation with friends, the argument came down to, who would have carried out such an act on there own people? and such an act would surely have required the knowledge of 100's if not 1000's of accomplices.

So is there a general consensus in the Truth movement to who actually carried out the attacks.

I was arguing 9/11 could have been carried out by those higher than George Bush. but who is higher than the POTUS?

I'm sure these questions have been answered before, but I was looking for a bit of clarification from those who are a little more savvy with the subject than myself.

If your on the side of the fence that says 9/11 was an inside job, then the options you have of people carrying out the act are pretty simple:
1. al Qaeda/Taliban extremists (public knowledge of the people who did it)
2. Auto-pilot (unlikely)
3. American Government/Military agents
4. Hired personnel

Those are basically your options. If I was a 9/11 inside job believer, I'd probably be thinking that it still was al Qaeda/Taliban extremists...but were employed and trained by the Government.

Yeah that was my argument or that the government knew something was being planned and did nothing to stop it.

In the UK we have civil servants that stay in their position whoever is in government. I imagine you have similar roles in your political set up

That is my theory [let it happen], the funny thing is, i was talking the other day about this and about wtc 7 and the super thermite and so, the guy says, or so the terrorist also used the thermite and used the drills to attack?..And why not, why are the "truthers" using the drills as their argument for a false flag? i mean, AQ also have intel, it would have been smart, and the controlled demoiltion, maybe the terrorist explicitly wanted the towers to fall, so they also painted the interior with super thermite? why not?

if the events leading up to 9/11 were an inside job, and the events of 9/11 were an inside job, and the cover-up of the events after 9/11 were an inside job, then the ones who carried out the attacks were the tax payers who funded the operations.

if it was an inside job, then the tax payers who funded the expenses are the ones who carried out the attacks. how much would something like this cost? do americans know where more than a trillion dollars went in the last decade?

even if we follow the money, it still leads back to those who funded it.

these are some of the thoughts i entertain about this subject,

Thanks for the thoughtful response. I guess it will remain one of life's questions with no definitive answer. One where you have to draw your own conclusions

The PEOPLE.

Or it is supposed to be.

My personal opinion is that it was some ultra-secret NSA/Black Ops agenda, allowing for a multitude of sins:

* Further suppression of human-rights/freedoms within the US/Worldwide.
* Handy excuse to further develop interests in the middle-east.
* Furtherance of an NWO/One world government agenda - not too sure where I stand on that one though.

There are also some further ideas about who might have done it that I don't believe in:

* The Jews (they're evil).
* Reptile people.

There are others, sorry, family arrive I can't give this the time it deserves.

I generally don't take a stance on this subject because there are simply too many unknowns to make a reliable decision on anything (other than the buildings and people are gone). The intelligence community, from my viewpoint, does not view "borders" in the same way that your average joe or jane does. National Security has nothing to do with the invasion of a country's main land. As such, something like 9/11 may have its origin in something that started 50-60 years ago and was merely a milestone in a much larger long term project plan.

Who is behind it? Who knows? The persistant elements of government.. The folks who don't give the information to the prsident because he "doesn't need to know". That would be my guess.

Well, an ex-Italian Prime Minister said publicly that the CIA and Mossad carried out 9/11.
current.com...
But then, what would someone who was deep in the international intelligence community know about it?

I could throw a few names in, And a few links but my honest truth is i dont know who was involved,

But i do know that it was NOT a few random muslim men,

Who ever it was they are still laughing at the whole world 9 years later

Look. whoever did this gig, did it with "military precision", and I use the term loosely.

This was planned down to the last minute, so to pull it off, you'd have to have every facit covered.

Nop, it wasn't arab dudes, they don't have the technical resources or the "missles", only the military have missles.

Inside job, you can count on it.

It was probably a little from all of the above.

If the government truly knew about it then they obviously they let it happen to push an agenda they may have been wanting to push.

That would mean Moe Atta was not innocent as many of his sympathyzers tend to suggest. That would also mean that the rest of his radical muzzie bunch were definately involved in and on 9/11.

Dont forget that America went to sleep shedding tears that night, while a certain group of people in our society continued to celebrate and dance way into the next day.

The OP has a really good point here and generally hits upon a very difficult hurdle with regards to the inside job theory.

Imagine how the plot must have started......

Hey Muhammed, I have a great job for you. It pays great and has a lot of perks. All you have to do is hijack a plane and fly it into the world trade center, while I blow it up on the ground using micro nukes! The whole thing should go down in a big fireball.

Muhammed: "Oh yeah OK boss, where do I sign up? What do I get in return?"


We'll pay you millions, you get to indulge in unlimited porn and drinking prior to the deed, and uhhh you get to die like you always wanted....

Somehow I just can't imagine how you'd sell this job to your trained operatives.

Thus I have to conclude, no matter who was involved, there was some definite involvement by suicidal jihadists. If the latter is the case, the whole theory starts to unravel. For example, why would true believers like the jihadists wish to support a job that would plunge the Middle east into chaos and wipe out their terrorist strongholds?
