I guess I like a good conspiracy theory like most people. In today’s Guardian there are a number of letters about a recent article which I think belittled the numerous 9/11 sceptics out there. George Mobiot’s article was what you might expect in retort to the Loose Change movie but the letters it provoked were interesting.
One claims that the WTC was destroyed by a controlled demolition. I have to say that the way the towers collapsed always struck me as odd… like a controlled demolition rather than a tower falling over.
The thing that got me most about 9/11 was the attack on the Pentagon. The damage doesn’t seem to look to me (a completely untrained observer) to be consistent with a plane crash. When I was a teenager I drove past the site of the Lockerbie crash and the crater was enormous… not like the Pentagon site at all…
Told you I liked a good conspiracy theory.
The thing about conspiracy theories is that someone has to profit. So who profits if the events of 9/11 were carried out by someone other than the people we have been told did it?
