I might actually be considered a LIHOP. I do believe the official story, in terms of the basics: 4 passenger planes with innocent people on board were
hijacked, two crashed into the two towers of the WTC, bringing them down and killing thousands more, a third crashed into the Pentagon and killed
close to 200 more, a 4th was taken down by either a passenger revolt or an Air Force shoot down (I do not dismiss either possibility). The 19
hijackers were all jihadists working under Al Qaeda guidance and inspiration. I also believe that NORAD and the Air Force were genuinely in the dark
about what was going on, and were a surprised and confused as the rest of the country as to what was going on. I also believe the majority of the
government, generally low to mid ranking officials, were also in the dark, as well as several higher placed ones. I also am completely neutral as to
what brought the twin towers and building 7 down. While I don't think we will ever really know exactly what happened to them (even the NIST report is
mostly speculation and theory, because total investigation wasn't really possible) I don't believe that there is any evidence of a controlled
demolition, or that some other nefarious force run by the government brought them down. There was a time in the early years, when the pancake theory
was being sold, that I was pretty sure that CD was involved. But 12 years on, not a single shred of evidence has come forth for CD, so I no longer
consider it plausible.
What I also believe is that certain individuals in high places knew exactly what was up, even details, because the CIA had been hanging around these
nutcases and been pretty damned close to them. I think a handful of very powerful people, both in our own government and in foreign governments, knew
what was going to happen, and for their own reasons, which we can only speculate on, decided to make sure nothing was done about it. It was a very
small number of elites who knew about it, but people who were in the right positions to make sure nothing was done, that investigations were
terminated, exercises ordered and scheduled to keep the Air Force busy and confused. They didn't need to do these attacks, there were already
religious psychos happy to do the job themselves for their own terrorist agenda. I simply believe that agenda was also very useful to certain
individuals who stood to gain much from the attack, whether it be financial, political, or military benefits for their own agendas. I also believe the
Saudis were involved a hell of a lot more than what is stated, and due to political and financial interests, are being covered for. I also think the
Israelis knew much, but were not involved in the attacks themselves.
So yeah, I guess that makes me a LIHOP, and I definitely know that we are almost non-existent. It's why I also do not consider myself a truther, nor
do I consider most LIHOPs truthers, because the truth movement is composed of people who are guillable, clueless, and really would rather believe in
death beams, imaginary holographic remote controlled planes, and government spooks planting fake planes than they are in anything resembling reality.
And this is why I refuse to have anything to do with them. In fact, ripping up their lame brain theories feels more like a service to humanity than
pushing my own LIHOP suspicions and theories, because the truth movement has become disrespectful, abusive, pointless, even downright dangerous
sometimes. And their peddling of nonsense is just as dangerous, in my opinion, as the government continuing to cover up and hide information of who
really knew what on that day.
Props to the Jersey Girls, though. I am on board with them. These are real people who lost real loved ones that day, who have a right to some answers.
Of course, many truthers don't believe anyone died, the victims were faked, and the families are getting paid off to lie. Another reason I have
nothing to do with them.
