Even if you watched too many episodes of the Xfiles and believed that the government would take down a national landmark and kill all of those people, why on earth would they do something that affected our national economy so greatly? Our economic situation has only worsed after 9/11 and that hasn't been good for anyone's political career.
I guess if the US wanted to fabricate a reason to go to war, couldnt they have just blown up a daycare or a school and got the same effect from the American heartstrings?
I think these wacko professors got thrown out of their last star trek convention and needed to create a new group of friends.

And I'm sure the millions of people that witnessed the events on 9/11 either in person or from live video feed think that planes didn't fly into the towers either...


There's always going to be an extreme group of people that like to ignore common sense and simple fact.. that much is obvious to me in this world... It's up to the rest of us to ignore them and keep our heads on straight. If we don't it only gives them fuel and, according to those idiots in the article, "credibility."

Interesting? No. Unless by interesting you mean; Wow that guy is a dumb ass with too much time on his hands, in the Wisconsin woods, in his cabin, touching himself, while he's coming up with conspiracy theories on how our government is playing Vulcan mind meld games on us and keeping him from getting laid. Bet he's living out in the woods to keep Uncle Sam from slipping a computer chip into his pea sized brain while he's sleeping.

It’s good to question what happens and looks for conspiracy, it’s foolish to want to see one so badly you make up one that is not there. THEY ALREADY tried to blow up the trade center with a bomb in the basement in 1994!!! Was that some rouge agency in out government?

Every conspiracy has to have a winner:

Who benefits from blowing up the trade center?

What is the risk reward, pretty risky such a huge endeavor isn’t a 3 man job, how do you repress something like that.

Where the explosives planted in the trade center? There is people there 24/7 I am to believe they drilled into the concrete and steel and laid tens of miles of explosive wires and plastic explosives?

There are a million things that could go wrong, what if an agency was co operating with al Qaeda, and one of the planes was downed, the other simply clipped its wing on the tower revealing tons and tons of sub floor and piles of explosives this jack ass thinks is there? Where did all the wires go when the tower fell? Lots of these planned detonations do NOT go off with out a hitch. The building could half collapse then stop, that would be impossible to make an excuse for. When the firemen go in there, and there are wires for the plastic explosives everywhere.

Do these professors or people that believe this bother to think for more than a moment about the details or they are so overwhelmed with hate they see what they want to see. Very sad.

WOW someone with a degree (maybe even a doctorate but they didn’t even call Jones or Barette a dr. so let’s assume they are not) is a complete ass. I know of many teachers and professors that DO have doctorates that are ignorant fools. Just proves you had money to go to school for a long time and then teach. Whoop dee dooo.


Neither Jones or Barrett according to the article is an expert in demolition. There are only like a dozen companies that do demo work with explosives and make building fall straight down. You don’t go to school for it, you learn on the job, they are family business. It’s not taught in the liberal jack ass wing of some big university. Clearly this “journalist” wants it to be a conspiracy also since they never interviewed any real expert, like say the owner of such a company that has dropped hundreds of building. CNN blows.

By interesting I meant that it was just a story on CNN is all. With all the talk in the other threads, it just was written at a coincidental time.
