My big problem with conspiracy theories in general is my belief that no one can keep their mouth shut to keep the secret concealed. Somebody's always going to talk, go the media, wikileaks, etc. with genuine, hard proof of the conspiracy if it actually existed. I don't think the US government coordinated 9/11, but I wouldn't put it past the war mongering, military industrial complex and the proverbial powers that be to ignore intelligence reports and key data if it fit their agenda; much like how there is proof the US government ignored certain warnings (and antagonized the Japanese) leading up to Pearl Harbor because they wanted an in to WWII. I also agree with americorps thought that conspiracy theorists need to find a pattern that creates order out off chaos, as if somebody has to be behind it all because if not the nature of chaos is just too scary to deal with.
As a context, if one is to study history, real history, not the propaganda version we get while getting schooled, we realize that history's major, transformative events are in fact conspiracies, this is easily corroborated as one digs up into the biographies and personalities of those who are actively behind those transcendental events in relation to power and money. So, we have prophecies vs business plans. Karl Rove, Senior Advisor and Deputy Chief of Staff during the George W. Bush administration, during an interview with Vanity Fair 2002, put it assertively yet accurately, when confronted by the interviewer naively describing how the world (politics) works :
"...that's not the way the world really works...we are an empire now, and when we act we create our own reality, and while you study that reality, judiciously as you will, we will act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors, and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do."
History is full of false flags events carried out to influence or cause a chain of events leading to satisfy pre-ordained agendas which are recorded history, not conspiracy theories. There's no need for every one to be in the conspiracy, it is called 'compartmentalization' which works down the line on a 'need to know' basis.
The evidence put forth by engineers, architects, scientists, not just from the US but from around the world is overwhelming and compelling, any honest and sincere research on this could corroborate all this vs the junk science put forth by the US government. Moreover, there are also pilots, aviation professionals, professors, 9/11 survivors, family members, senior military, intelligence, law enforcement and medical professionals who question the official report, which is been proven to be a sham. The best lawyers who value the Constitution and the rule of law, examined evidence and spotted cover-ups or inconsistencies in the evidence and bias in witnesses or decision-makers, and they are good at weighing conflicting evidence. It is therefore also interesting to note that numerous high-level legal scholars question the government’s official story about 9/11. The truth is sadly to scarry to deal with, facing it threatens all that we've been conditioned to believe in, and with that our own very selves.
