There have been threads in this forum that address the general issue of what happened on 9/11. That being said, I have found that a lot of them are not neutral in their title- their titles imply that they are either for or against an official narrative. I started a thread with the same title as this one in another forum and after over 1000 posts, I think it's been fairly successful. Not sure if it'll work out here, but I thought I'd give it a go. I'll start by responding to someone who asked me to outline my view of what happened on 9/11 and who was behind it... I've heard many theories as to what happened at the World Trade Center. As to the general outline of what happened on 9/11, I think I'll start with the general outline of both the official narrative of events, as well as the generally accepted outline of what those who disagree with it is, as outlined in a documentary film called Zeitgeist... *** 19 hijackers, directed by Osama Bin Laden, took over 4 commercial jets with box cutters and, while evading the Air Defense System (NORAD), hit 75% of their targets. In turn, World Trade Towers 1, 2 & 7 collapsed due to structural failure through fire in a "pancake" fashion, while the plane that hit the Pentagon vaporized upon impact, as did the plane that crashed in Shanksville. The 911 Commission found that there were no warnings for this act of terrorism, while multiple government failures prevented adequate defense. *** I would like to ask anyone who sides with the official narrative if they essentially agree with this narrative. As to what I believe, this is exemplified by the concluding statement of Zeitgeist in its 9/11 section: *** Criminal Elements within the US government staged a "false flag" rerror attack on its own citizens, in order to manipulate public perception into supporting its agenda. They have been doing these for years. 9/11 was an Inside Job. *** For anyone considering responding to this thread for the first time, I ask that you consider briefly pointing out what you think happened on 9/11; it can be as simple as stating that you believe in one of the 2 summaries outlined above, or it can be more detailed. At that point, I will endeavour to comment on your entry, and explain why I agree or disagree with your point of view.
