I am fairly new to ATS, but 9/11 is the reason I joined. I stumbled upon ATS researching 9/11. Someone told me "you are a dumb*** if you believe
anything you've heard about 9/11." This got me thinking what do I actually believe. I knew there were holes in the OS, but in my opinion how big
were those holes? When first stumbling upon ATS, I will be honest I was much more naive than I thought about 9/11. I'm still doing my own research,
diving into different angels of the conspiracy.
I have spent ALOT of time reading threads, watching videos, and investigating websites people have suggested. However, when on ATS I feel as most
debunk others ideas (which I understand is one of the main points of the website.) I have an understanding of what many members DON'T think happened.
I'm creating this thread in the hopes of learning what you DO think happened. Who was behind the attack? Osama, the US, a combination? Do you believe
plans hit the WTCs, the pentagon, the field in Pennsylvania? Who in the MSM knew originally, who knew later? etc.
Also, I was young when the attack happened. I was always a patriotic child, but after 9/11 I had nothing but the highest level of respect for America,
something I wish I still had. For those of you who were older with more experience, did you originally think this was a false flag? If not, when did
you start to believe something wasn't right? Lastly, if an attack like 9/11 happened tomorrow, what would be your first reaction.
I don't want this to be a thread bashing others opinions or trying to disprove anything. I'm sure I will not agree with what some of you say, but I
thought though this thread could help me and others gain insight when reading others threads and posts. Also, hopefully steer me in a direction to
learn more about the topic.
*I did not go back through 12 years of history, but I searched for a topic like this and did not find anything. A thread like this could go by many
names though, so if I missed something I apologize and please remove this thread.
I'll come back and edit my opinion in soon
