911 imagery...

When I was looking at this image to present in class, I thought it was interesting what the reporter was saying about the image. What is she saying...that it never happened??

This one reminds me of what Dr. Coonfield was tallking about with the movie being made at the same time that 911 happened..surrealism..what is real? Are they suggesting the guy who leased the buildings knew about the attack?? Knew that the attack was going to happen?!!

These videos are all part of the evidence that those who believe 9/11 was a government conspiracy offer. These folks were protesting at the 6th anniversary. Basically, they think the government knew about the terrorist attacks in advance. But they permitted them to happen anyway for a number of reasons. First, because the Bush administration wanted war. Second, because the Port Authority wanted to rebuild lower Manhattan.

Check out the Responses on youtube. You can glean most of this from there..

Wow! unbelievble. so thousands of lives were lost, shattered, changed forever, becauase Bush wanted to go war and lose more lives, and the Port Authority wanted to rebuild lower Manhattan!!? that is unthinkable...

Yes, that's about it. So in the case of the United flight, for example, they claim it didn't just crash, it was blown up or shot down by the government. And then cleaned up so quickly so there would be no evidence.

Yes, it is a little much for me to get my mind around.
