Tough. Grow up.

9/11 Commissioners:

  • And the Senior Counsel to the 9/11 Commission (John Farmer) - who led the 9/11 staff's inquiry - recently said "At some level of the government, at some point in time...there was an agreement not to tell the truth about what happened". He also said "I was shocked at how different the truth was from the way it was described
    .... The tapes told a radically different story from what had been
    told to us and the public for two years.... This is not spin. This is
    not true." And he said:
    "It's almost a culture of concealment, for lack of a better word.
    There were interviews made at the FAA's New York center the night of
    9/11 and those tapes were destroyed. The CIA tapes of the interrogations
    were destroyed. The story of 9/11 itself, to put it mildly, was distorted and was completely different from the way things happened"

If even the 9/11 Commissioners don't buy the official story, why do you?

Senior intelligence officers:

  • Former military analyst and famed whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg said that the case of a certain 9/11 whistleblower is "far more explosive than the Pentagon Papers".
    He also said that the government is ordering the media to cover up her
    allegations about 9/11. And he said that some of the claims concerning
    government involvement in 9/11 are credible, that "very serious
    questions have been raised about what they [U.S. government officials]
    knew beforehand and how much involvement there might have been", that
    engineering 9/11 would not be humanly or psychologically beyond the
    scope of the current administration, and that there's enough evidence
    to justify a new, "hard-hitting" investigation into 9/11 with subpoenas
    and testimony taken under oath (see this and this)
  • A decorated 20-year CIA veteran, who
    Pulitzer-Prize winning investigative reporter Seymour Hersh called
    "perhaps the best on-the-ground field officer in the Middle East”, and
    whose astounding career formed the script for the Academy Award winning
    motion picture Syriana (Robert Baer) said that "the evidence points at" 9/11 having had aspects of being an inside job

If even our country's top intelligence officers don't buy the official story, why do you?

Congressmen:

  • Former
    U.S. Republican Congressman and senior member of the House Armed
    Services Committee, and who served six years as the Chairman of the
    Military Research and Development Subcommittee Curt Weldon has shown
    that the U.S. tracked hijackers before 9/11, is open to hearing information about explosives in the Twin Towers, and is open to the possibility that 9/11 was an inside job

If there is bipartisan questioning of the official story, why aren't you questioning it?

Other government officials:

  • Former
    Deputy Secretary for Intelligence and Warning under Nixon, Ford, and
    Carter (Morton Goulder), former Deputy Director to the White House Task
    Force on Terrorism (Edward L. Peck), and former US Department of State
    Foreign Service Officer (J. Michael Springmann), as well as a who's who
    of liberals and independents) jointly call for a new investigation into 9/11
  • Former
    Federal Prosecutor, Office of Special Investigations, U.S. Department
    of Justice under Presidents Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan; former U.S.
    Army Intelligence officer, and currently a widely-sought media
    commentator on terrorism and intelligence services (John Loftus) says
    "The information provided by European intelligence services prior to
    9/11 was so extensive that it is no longer possible for either the CIA
    or FBI to assert a defense of incompetence"

If top government officials are skeptical, why aren't you?

Numerous other politicians, judges, legal scholars, and attorneys also question at least some aspects of the government's version of 9/11.

Note 1:  Yes, this does have to do with economics and business. Nobel prize economist Joe Stiglitz just said
that the Iraq war is partly responsible for our bad economy.  Many
forget, but the Iraq war was "legally" justified by the claim that Iraq
had a hand in 9/11.  See this.  And 9/11 has had a profound affect on the economy in many other ways as well.  See this.
