Most of you will know my feelings about conspiracy theorists, I don't believe a word nor their ridicules 'so called proof of facts' they come up with! They are never satisfied with the facts but find it necessary to continue sensationalizing what are mostly appalling tragedies from the death of Marilyn Munro, the assassination of JFK, the tragic death of Princess Diana and of course 9/11 and I have for years spoken out and interviewed many people directly or indirectly on many of these tragedies on my radio shows. Those who benefit from these tragedies are the TV stations, Movies and the millions of books trying to convince us of one conspiracy or another. Big bucks is what its all about.
So Im going to rune a series of blogs debunking as many of these so called conspiracies as possible.
Up first is the 9/11 conspiracy theories debunked.
The twin towers were destroyed by controlled explosion
The Truthers say:
video footage of the buildings falling points to demolition due to the way the towers bend before collapsing. Also, there appear to be explosions as the windows blow out, floor by floor, from the top downwards. One US academic claims to have tested samples from the wrecked towers which show the presence of chemical residue, suggesting explosives had been used.
But in controlled explosion demolition experts collapse a building from the bottom not the top. Experts say the windows were blown out as each floor collapsed on to the one below, sending debris and office equipment flying out.
Think about this:
It would also have taken considerable work, which would not have gone unnoticed, to plant sufficient explosives the length of the buildings to bring them down.
The Pentagon was hit by a missile, not a plane....
The evidence for this, say sceptics claim:
Is that the major damage to the building comprised a roundish blast hole, not the more extended destruction some say would be caused by aeroplane wings. Truthers claim parts of a scrapped plane, including the tail, were moved to the Pentagon as part of the fabrication.
This theory ignores the considerable evidence of the bodies of passengers and crew at the site which were photographed. Thousands of people saw the plane circle then fly into the Pentagon. Some quickly photographed the scene.
Think about it:
Approximately 23,000 military and civilian employees and about 3,000 non-defense support personnel work in the Pentagon, Surely anyone planting plane debris at the site afterwards would surely have been seen.
The hijacked planes were packed with explosives and flown by remote control:
Some conspiracy theorists believe:
That thehe passengers supposedly on board were either killed elsewhere and their bodies dumped at sea, or were part of the conspiracy and are now in hiding with new identities.
A key piece of evidence claimed for this theory is that the mobile phone calls the victims are recorded as having made to loved ones from the doomed planes were not possible because of the altitude of the aircraft and therefore faked using "voice morphing technology".
However, phone records show the calls were made from satellite phones fitted to the back of the aircraft seats.
Israel was behind the attacks in order to draw America into a conflict with Arab nations:
The evidence claimed for this theory is:
4,000 Jews who supposedly worked at the WTC failed to report for work on 11 September because they had been forewarned by the Israeli intelligence service, Mossad.
However, the figure appears to be based on a statement made by the Israeli foreign minister that about 4,000 Israelis were in the cities under attack at the time. More than one in ten of those who died on 9/11 were Jewish.
This partially confirms the information provided by the United States Department of State.
“A total of 2,071 occupants of the World Trade Center died on September 11, among the 2,749 victims of the WTC attacks. According to an article in the October 11, 2001, Wall Street Journal, roughly 1,700 people had listed the religion of a person missing in the WTC attacks; approximately 10% were Jewish. A later article, in the September 5, 2002, Jewish Week, states, “based on the list of names, biographical information compiled by The New York Times, and information from records at the Medical Examiner’s Office, there were at least 400 victims either confirmed or strongly believed to be Jewish.” This would be approximately 15% of the total victims of the WTC attacks. A partial list of 390 Cantor Fitzgerald employees who died (out of 658 in the company) lists 49 Jewish memorial services, which is between 12% and 13%.”
So there you have it. Of cource The Truthers as thy're called will never belive any of this.
