with regards to the 9-11 theory i have always thought to myself and posted a comment similar to this:
if al gore won the election in 2000 would 9-11 still have happened and would bin laden still be guilty? and would the government still get the blame and the conspiracy theories gained the traction they did?
in my opinion no they wouldnt there would have been no truther movement no nothing except a few people questioning it.
conspiracy theories are politically and ideologically driven meaning the common perception is that the us government is pure evil when republicans are in control and not evil when democrats are in control.
not really trying to make this a right left issue but i was trying to look at it from outside the box.

Agreements with other countries on operations like this are made all the time.
1 The Pakistanis knew Osama was there.
2 The Pakistanis knew that the US was going to get him
3 The Pakistanis cannot outwardly admit they approved this action because that would mean chaos in their country.
4 You should ask yourself why the State Dept. is playing down the Pakistani involvement in this operation and continuing to give them military and other financial aid.
When a declaration of war is made every target that could be hit, every fighter that is killed, is typically not named.
There has been a continuing authority by Congress since the 1990s approving the capture or killing of Osama bin Laden.edit on 5-5-2011 by projectvxn because: (no reason given)
