The events of 9/11, which occurred ten years ago, are still a major topic of discussion. There are many theories about what happened that day, and some of them revolve around the idea that it was an inside job. Many of these theories have been put forth by a number of sources, including Sky History UK, CliffsNotes, and a book written by journalist David Griffin called The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration and 9/11.
The conspiracy theories surrounding the events of 9/11 are a hot topic these days. One of the most popular and controversial theories is that the World Trade Center was destroyed by a controlled demolition. This was supported by a film called Loose Change, which argues that the planes involved in the attacks were replaced by remote-controlled drones.
Dylan Avery is the director of this film. He has been working on this documentary for the past few years. Originally, it was supposed to be a fictional thriller. But after he started researching the event, he became convinced that there was a plot to defraud the United States.
Sky History UK’s CliffsNotes version
The Sky History UK is a big name in the history department, and they’ve been a part of the television landscape since the late ’70s, if you can believe it. They’re now broadcasting in a multitude of languages, and on a number of devices including TV, internet, and mobile. As such they’ve become a favourite with millennials and jaded oldsters alike. In fact, the company was recently rebranded, albeit in a relatively minor manner. It was formerly known as A&E Television Networks, or AETN for short. On a more practical note, they’ve since rebranded their name to A&E Networks UK.
Griffin’s The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration and 9/11
The New Pearl Harbor is not a book to be sniffed at, and if you’re in the market for a quick and dirty romp through the Bush administration’s history of duplicity, this is a must-read. Not only does it contain more than a few amusing anecdotes and amusingly named acronyms, but it’s also a logical and readable read. This is thanks to Griffin’s adroit sleuthing and a savvy publisher who knows what a good story looks like.
While this book’s main focus is on a well-researched and readable account of the Bush administration’s blunders, its author reaches out to the rest of the world in his quest for the truth. In addition to his own investigations, he has gathered reports from foreign countries, the mainstream press, and a select few other researchers and writers. He has managed to distill what he deems as the best and most compelling stories into a single, albeit short, mashup.
NIST reports on Twin Towers collapse
The US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has produced a report on the collapse of the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001. This massive document is nearly 300 pages long, and contains the most complete analysis of the events of that day. However, it is difficult to see how this report can be trusted.
The report makes many assertions about the causes of the collapse. These include that the buildings fell down “progressively,” and that they were “propelled by aircraft impact and fire.” Yet it fails to mention that they were brought down by controlled demolition.
NIST investigated a number of hypotheses about the collapse of the buildings. It concluded that the collapse was caused by sagging perimeter columns, trusses, and floors.
The 9/11 attacks in New York City, and the subsequent fallout, has spawned a myriad of conspiracy theories. Some have been debunked, others remain a mystery. In this article we look at the most prominent ones.
There are two major factions. One is the official government version, and the other is a group of engineering professionals who claim to have uncovered evidence of an actual conspiracy.
The official government version says that two planes crashed into the World Trade Center complex. The third one hit the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia. Almost 3,000 people died in the attacks, with some conspiracy theorists claiming that as many as 30,000 people were killed.
