OK. If 9/11 was an inside job it would have had to be a pretty big one. How coul every one involved stay quiet. No one could bribe, threaten of discredit that many. Think about it this way.
The airlines would have to be involved. Assume that just the CEO, directors, and a few lawyers at each airline know. Thats about 50-60. Then add demolition experts to plant the explosaves. Maybe one or two do the math, but you gotta have a ton of it made or purchaced, which takes maybe a hundred people. Lets assume these people plant the explosaves as well.
Next, the planes. Each plane has to be flown by a pilot, logicall by remote control. Thats four, or less depending on your opinion. At least two, with every one in the wolrd looking at WTC, almost certinly three with all the people at the pentagon looking. But each plane has a ground crew, thats another 10-20 people. Now the conspirators. The president, secratary of state, defence, attourny general, a few real generals, and so forth. Look at all the people. This is just a few off the top of my head. It would be pretty hard to keep all that under wraps.

And anyone trying to say 9/11 was something other then a terror attack has to factor in this problem. The larger the group the more likely faliure is, and this is any way you look at it, a huge group. Some one would get a critical peice of info out there and that would be the end of it. Even the mafia couldnt hid their existace and they had no problem killing people who though about talking. QED.

You have a very good point; however, secrets can be kept for a long time.

One example that springs immediately to mind is 'Who shot JFK?'

That was a pretty big crime, lots of people had to be involved in the planning and cover up and yet, over 50 years on the culprits have never come forward or been named

Civilian organized crime for the most part does have government oversight on it. When the government itself is engaged in organized crime activities, there is absolutely no oversight. At least no oversight that couldn't be eliminated anyway. With the media in the pocket of that same government, getting out any damning information from sources that could hurt that government would be quite the problematic task. With the resources that a government with multiple intelligence services has, I'm not sure anybody who knows anything would be left unmonitored.

Other conspiracy subjects, such as UFOs/ETs, has quite a few high profile names within it that claim the subject is within the realm of reality regarding their own experiences. However the subject continues to remain an uninvestigated, unprosecuted mystery.

9/11 could of involved a couple dozen people at most...government hires private contractors to 'take care of stuff' all the time...

and word DID begin to spread weeks before 9/11...people DID hear about enforecement , fbi, mayors, civilians...etc

Think of the criminals in a mafia ring. totally out of the public eye, in secret...out of your realm of knowledge.

OK, with JFK, the size of that conspiracy could be any size of any type. Its difficult to say there was a conspiracy and it was pulled off perfectly and no one talked anytime. Besides wouldnt it be a trillion times easier to just crash real planes in to the buildings. Send a CIA guy to terrorists training camp, spread the idea, then kill that guy and let it happen.

How do you know that's not how it actually happened? At least you are starting to think outside the box. Plus, in your scenario, there is the underlying problem of the government still being involved.
