Video: '9/11 Conspiracy Theories Ridiculous' - Al Qaeda
It's been a while seen I've looked into the so-called 9/11 truth movement - 2007 to be exact. As of right now, I'm not convinced of what this movement argues: that 9/11 was an inside job.
What you must say - in order for me to believe that "individuals within the United States government may have been either responsible for or knowingly complicit in the September 11 attacks" as Wikipedia puts it - or rather what you must do is define what you mean by "inside job." If you mean that the Bush administration coordinated the entire thing, then I'm not on your side. However, if you mean that foreign policy as advocated by Washington insiders lead to the events on September 11th, 2001, then sure, I'm on your side. I'm a big believer in blowback; I'm not big on.....
Truth is always important and in all ages. But right now, there's enough evidence that government corruption exists and has been existing for some time now. I can sleep at night not accepting the truth of 9/11. Any explanation for 9/11 is a bad one (if product of foreign policy, then bad; if product of Bush Administration, then it's still bad), and the resolution of contradictory explanations and accounts is not top priority right now.
...Oh yea...The Onion produced a classic in the above video. "How would you like it if you spent two months sleeping in a mountain cave, sleeping on rocks, planning something very special only to have someone take the credit from you?"
August 2011 Update:
I find the 9/11 truth movement more credible now. Better late than never.
