The one thing that I thought was really weird and that stood out to me as odd is how the night of 9/11 they were reporting on the news that they had found five Korans in the hijackers’ parked car at the airport. Like, why even report that unless you’re gearing up for a war in the Middle East? They didnt report what else was in the car, just that there were multiple Korans. I thought that was such an odd thing to share. And right away too. My 9/11 conspiracy is that the federal government had vague info that an attack was going to happen at some point and used that info to plan in advance the invasions of Iraq and Afgghanistan.

R53, I think so, too. I worked for Deutsche Bank, across the street from the South Tower. Three months before the attacks, the department heads traveled to our disaster recovery location to do a test run, to make sure we could still perform essential operations from a backup office.

Also, one night in August there was a huge cohort of Port Authority official vehicles parked all around the WTC. It was about 8:00 at night. No idea what that was all about, but I remembered it in the days after the attacks. It could have been nothing.

This is a very detailed account of the cause of the twin towers collapse by specialist metallurgists. They seem pretty clear, and too boring to be conspirators.

The short story is this: the fire, because it was not uniform throughout the upper building, gradually caused steel supports to distort, crucially the floor supports among them. Once one floor crashed down onto the one below, the one below was trying to hold up more than twice what it was designed to hold, so the floors just kept falling on top of each other, gaining momentum as the weight increased, and the inertia took the outside walls with them. These guys say there was no way a building with that degree of wind resistance built in was ever going to topple over.

If you google Why did Tower 7 collapse? you will find a similarly sensible explanation. It was fire, again, over a much longer period because there was less fire all at once. A key factor was that the earlier collapse of towers 1&2 had knocked out the water supply. Had the sprinkler system been working Tower 7 would most likely have been OK. Investigators said if there had been a detonation everyone for a large distance around would have been looking at the tower when it fell, alerted by a very loud noise just before. Nobody reported one.

That there was the perfect pic of the flight 93 plane just before it struck the first tower. Yes, there was a crew of French filmmakers down around Tribeca that morning, filming a documentary that had nothing at all to do with WTC, and one guy just happened to have his camera rolling and heard the plane and the noise grew louder as it approached and he looked up, and . . . ok, right.

The original WTC towers were unique in that the vertical support was in the steel beams running around the building's perimeter that created its distinct facade. The windows were the opposite of picture windows; they ran up and down, not left to right. I don't know how wide they were, but they were narrow, maybe six or eight feet? The conceit was that with no wide, expansive view, it would keep the people who worked there focused on their jobs. So each floor was clear, uninterrupted space until the middle, where the elevators, stairwells and other internal/structural components were.

[quote]R35: Where was the option 'There was no conspiracy theory' which in my books is the only choice.

Of course there was a conspiracy. A group consisting mostly of Saudi nationals conspired to hijack airliners and fly them into buildings.

[quote]R42: Believing in conspiracy theories is a sign of mental illness and indicates a complete inability to think critically.

That's a bit of a broad brush, don't you think, R42? Conspiracies exist. The Boston Tea Party was a conspiracy. There was a conspiracy to assassinate the President, the Vice President, and the Secretary of State just after the Civil War (killing the President was the only one they managed to fully carry out, although William Seward was severely maimed in the attempt). The Reichstag Fire was a conspiracy. The Kennedy assassination was a conspiracy. There are lots of conspiracies that really occurred, and it does not require mental illness to believe in them.

That said, I don't subscribe to any of the options offered in OP's poll. I think it's possible that certain elements of the US government may have known that something was afoot, and permitted it to happen. Per 'The Project For a New American Century,' the 𝑛𝑒𝑒𝑑 for an event of this kind was certainly there ("Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor." - "𝑅𝑒𝑏𝑢𝑖𝑙𝑑𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝐴𝑚𝑒𝑟𝑖𝑐𝑎'𝑠 𝐷𝑒𝑓𝑒𝑛𝑠𝑒𝑠: 𝑆𝑡𝑟𝑎𝑡𝑒𝑔𝑖𝑒𝑠, 𝐹𝑜𝑟𝑐𝑒𝑠, 𝑎𝑛𝑑 𝑅𝑒𝑠𝑜𝑢𝑟𝑐𝑒𝑠 𝐹𝑜𝑟 𝑎 𝑁𝑒𝑤 𝐶𝑒𝑛𝑡𝑢𝑟𝑦"). And the threat assessment had crossed Dubya's desk, but hadn't been acted upon. Conventional wisdom chalked this up to incompetence, just like much of what Trump has and has not done, at least until the Bob Woodward tapes of discussions with Trump were disclosed, and it was revealed that Trump 𝑘𝑛𝑒𝑤. Nothing like that has come across for Bush 43, at least in terms of a smoking gun. Whether Dubya's administration knew about this specific attack in advance will probably never be known for certain, but what 𝑖𝑠 certain is that, once it happened, they took full advantage of it in order to advance the neocon agenda in the Middle East.

Apparently it is an utter impossibility to fly a passenger plane low over Manhattan at 600 mph; the plane would have broken-up into pieces. That is a speed that is appropriate for 30,000 ft., where the plane floats with the aid of air currents in the atmosphere.

Add to that: novice pilots just out of flight training who hit a narrow target at that speed- twice at the WTC site and once at the Pentagon. The odds become infinitesimally small..

And none of the American pilots ever hit the button that they were being hijacked.

And no phone calls were made from the planes. The signal would have been impossible at that elevation in the year 2001.

This so much, I wish I could upvote it more than once

And why doesnt the poll have an option for "none of the above"?

The 911 conspiracy theories all fall apart for the same reason the moon landing ones do - to organise something that big requires thousands of people and a spectacular and consistent level of competence as R79 touched on, which just doesnt happen in the real world. Sooner or later people will talk

The best explanation for how the Saudis and Al Queda managed to pull this off is a mixture of good luck and incompetence on the part of US government agencies who weren't even talking to each other.

R87 thank you for the obvious and logical explanation, and thank you to every other rational person on this idiotic thread

R69, read R71. The towers' construction was unique (x2), and the core wasn't concrete, it was also steel. The fire had heated it and as the floors fell they pulled it down, same as the outer frame.

Also, I think we should make a distinction here between actual conspiracy theories, and the theory that W had prior intelligence about a terrorist attack and chose to ignore it, either for some political reason or just because he was [demonstrably] a twit. I thought that one was pretty much accepted? If so, then you could expect that people in the intelligence community, or people surrounding the President, may have warned others close to them to be careful in the week or two before. It doesn't mean they had any hand in the events.

Actually, not true, R99. Just allowing it to happen and letting it play out in real time seemed to work really well.

Yes, It would be difficult to stage 911. Too many eyes on the scene. I used to believe that there were charges inside the buildings to bring them straight down if they were falling. Then I saw how it was built and indeed the implosion does make more sense with the exoskeleton collapsing on itself.

But the moon landing? I am not taking a stand or anything. But you would just need to control one or two feeds and convince those involved that it was being faked for the good of America. There was still a Cold War then.

[quote] Why can't we see any photos or videos from either the Pentagon or the Pennsylvania crash site?

This sort of willful ignorance is the hallmark of conspiracy theorists.

R103 exactly

Some photos right here at the link below, and lots more if you put the words "Pentagon crash site" into Google images

Ditto the Pennsylvania crash site

9/11 - the QAnon gift that keeps on giving.

And, we all know with whom QAnon align itself.

My issue is not with how the towers fell, but how fast they fell.
