This was Larry Silvestein`s plan all along... Destroying the old and obsolete towers and rebuild new and improved. And it also could resolve another problem, give the world the impression that terrorists did it so the Gov could take our freedoms away and get some oil from the middle east. It`s not a conspiracy, it`s obvious!

Cajun247: Pretty hard for a judge to charge someone when they aren`t there, haven`t been indicted, or arrested.

I don`t know how it goes in some other countries but here you have to at least get caught, arrested, and brought before a judge before any of the rest can take place. Sure people have ran and been convicted `In Absentia` but that`s only after being brought before a judge.

It`s sad that most people do not know at least the basics of legal procedure.

I know it`s hard for someone as patriot and blind as an American to believe his Government is trying to kill him... But one day he will see, when the police barge in his home and take him away with the pretext of terrorism. Open your eyes idiots, your all sheep and your going to the slaughter. And keep watching tv, it helps shorten the time to your demise.

Oh please, there are wackos, wackjobs, nutters, and people who believe in them and/or insane ideas etc. etc. all throughout the world.

Like people who believe in Communism, young-Earth creationism, flat-Earth theories.
Then their`s exceptionalism, jingoism/chauvinism.

80% of Turks believe in young-Earth creationism (pity I was liking the place).
A large minority in Japan believes the Nanking massacre didn`t happen or wasn`t as severe.
Don`t even mention holocaust deniers.

No CJ, Clearly it`s not. Obama promised to close Guantanamo. How could I have known republicans would refuse to allow transfer of prisoners to the USA for fear they might be found not guilty?

I agree that Janet Napolitano is a failure. She`s un-American and should be forced to read the constitution. However she`s not a fraud like Michael Chertoff who spent millions of our tax dollars on a company he was heavily invested in. That company makes the the full body scanners that are used in airports and Michael is sitting on a giant pile of cash like the rest of that corrupt administration.

Bush can`t travel outside the USA for fear of being served with an indictment.

osmandias: Polls vary by how the question is asked, But when the question is phrased as "Were the towers intentionally `Demolished` ?" or "Were the planes military jets ?" the percentages are very low. However if the question mentions GW Bush at all, The percentages rise, Probably because of hatred toward him instead of any "inside job" belief.

osmandias: The only coincidences I find are that conspiracy theorists seem to flock together in each others groups. Wackjobs so anti-American that they`ll believe anything that smears the USA.

Those people might make up maybe 10% of the US population, that`s nowhere near a third. I know it`s a popular pastime in Europe to bash the US, has been for sometime now. I can only attribute that to jealousy and envy, because Europe is such deep crap economically right now and it`s easier to blame the US for your own country`s problems.

Btw, Americans don`t blame our problems on Europe, We have more class than that.

The plans for the Freedom Tower were in place way before Iraq invaded Kuwait...around the time Bush Sr. was selling secret chemical weapons to the Nazi regime in the 60s. The reason why construction has been held up was because a big chunk of the funding for the project has been tied up in the controversy surrounding gold reserves in Swiss banks linked back to the Nazis and the attempt by post war families to regain some of the fortunes lost in the Halliburton-Bolshevik alliance.

In the end it comes down to how many unanswered questions, how many coincidences and how many bullsh*t you are willing to swallow to accept the explanation that fittes your taste.

Does my profile say I`m from the South? No, I`m from New York you idiot. That`s why I`m making such a big deal out of this because I know several very close friends who had relatives that died in the towers. I`m lucky that my uncle, who is an NY firemen was not inside when they collapsed. So why don`t you pay a little more attention to detail and learn your stereotypes you retard.

You do realize the actual logistics behind closing gitmo aren`t nearly as simple as "Close it down"

Those prisoners have to be transferred to different prisons where their safety, and the safety of other inmates are both kept in mind. As well as the safety of the townspeople in the general areas in case of prison breaks.

You should write you congressmen and petition them to take the detainees to the prison closest to you if you feel that it needs to be closed.

Oh yea, how about that promise the basis of our countries government was built upon that you [should have] learned about in 3rd grade? That`s still relevant, isn`t it? In fact, if Obama had the power to just will policy into existence, Gitmo would indeed be closed down, national debt would be outlawed, and people like you wouldn`t have a reason to spout such absurdity.

There are people who spew nonsense all the time, on the other hand there is stuff they DO know and is well accepted by the community. You two are simply saying that we should not allow a physics student to take classes or allow a physics professor teach a physics class simply because they believe in an insane conspiracy theory?

I say let them learn physics/chemistry/biology and when it comes to professors if they start preaching something other than their subject then you can rein them in.

9/11 didn`t need to be an "inside job" to be a conspiracy. It could be something like withholding information in an effort to ultimately chip away at our civil liberties. Nobody got fired from 9/11. We`ve spent trillions on military spending and Osama bin Laden is free. They`ve used terrorism to invade sovereign nations, justify imprisoning people indefinitely, rendition. Our government listens in on phone calls now without a court order. They takes nude pictures of us and feel up toddlers and old women in wheelchairs. This is no "freedom tower" it`s a monument to the day we wiped our ass with the constitution.

osmandias: It was the 1970s when the twin towers were erected, They tested the frame vs. a Boeing 707 (one of the larger planes at the time) in computer simulations. They did not factor in all the burning jet fuel, carpet, furniture, etc.

The planes that were flown into the towers were much larger Boeing 767s fully loaded with fuel.
Engineers that investigated the crash were amazed the buildings withstood the stress and heat for as long as they did.

The new buildings were computer simulation tested vs. several of the largest planes being flown today, On much more advanced computers than they had in the 1970`s. The elevators and stairways are designed better and despite your instant appraisal they are vastly better than the originals.
