Yes, 9/11 Was An Inside Job, and ...

American Airlines Flight 77 was hijacked by five terrorists on September 11, 2001, and deliberately crashed into the Pentagon, killing all 64 people aboard and another 125 people in the building Peroutka also called the 9/11 terrorist attacks an "inside job," saying "you can't have an explosion in the basement that's done by the hijacker on the airplane" and claimed that the official account of the 9/11 attack was the real "conspiracy theory." "We know who was responsible for 9/11. In its detailed report on the plot, the 9/11 Commission wrote simply, “We do not know where they went.” Counterterrorism agents often complained before 9/11 that headquarters tightly managed the flow of intelligence information, sometimes to the detriment of investigations. “I had my marching orders,” says Lambert, who is now consulting for the lawyers to the Sept. 11 families. SHAPIRO: Bankruptcy filing can be a strategy or a tactic. Infowars has filed for bankruptcy. Three companies founded by conspiracy theorist and right-wing broadcaster Alex Jones filed for bankruptcy yesterday. “We want to see tangible proof before the 20th anniversary of 9/11 that this Administration is truly committed to transparency,” said Brett Eagleson, the first signatory of the letter, in a statement. “The 9/11 families deserve justice and closure. Allow us to have the justice and closure that we deserve,” he said. The Taliban and al-Qaeda “remain closely aligned and show no indication of breaking ties,” the U.N. report said. With the fundamentalist group taking over again, Afghanistan could be a “humanitarian crisis in the making.” (Video: Alexa Juliana Ard, Ishaan Tharoor/The Washington Post) In April, the U.S. intelligence community told Congress that al-Qaeda “will continue to plot attacks and seek to exploit conflicts in different regions.”

No, In fact, Meziche's crimes were petty, and ...

Heaven is for good people, people who respect life, people who do good.” Still others just wanted to return to their families and live normal lives. They seized computers, files and videotapes and took Meziche in for questioning.

Maybe, The years since 9/11 were worse, and ...

Mr. Bermas, who came on to help with the film’s second edition, told me that “Loose Change” drew attention because it was better produced than other videos in its genre, and because it came out several years into the Iraq war, at a time when trust in many institutions was declining and many Democrats (and some Republicans) were rightly concerned about government cover-ups and misdirection. The “Loose Change” team also hit on other creative distribution strategies, selling DVDs in multi-packs, and encouraging fans to leave copies behind in laundromats, post offices, hotel lobbies and other public places where strangers might pick them up. New technology helped, too. And in fact, the unruly media anarchy of the immediate post-9/11 juncture was treated by government and commercial media forces, at least implicitly, as a dangerous hazard. The vertical integration of social media has made it easier for political actors to fundraise, gain recognition and circulate the kind of simple (and often patently false) information that first really flourished online after the attacks of Sept. 11. Among other problems, social media consolidation happened in a context where people’s privacy was being trampled in the name of national security, often taking the shape of collaboration between the state and private companies providing Internet services and collecting surveillance data: deregulation and coordination were closely linked.
