I'm confused on how someone could not take a stand on the truthers, either way.
either the planes knocked the buildings down, or they didn't. either you think the government pulled off the largest conspiracy in the history of the world AND kept every single person involved quiet, or they didn't.
I have taken US navy crash-rescue and firefighting school. I know people that do controlled demolition for a living.
crash-rescue school taught me that materials (titanium and nickel-steel alloy, designed for heat resistance) far tougher than the steel used in the WTC will melt when subjected to sublimating jet fuel. I've seen it happen.
my friends who do controlled demolition tell me that it would have taken 6 months, minimum, working 3 shifts round the clock, to do a controlled demolition on the WTC. and that's if it were empty. yet no one in the building saw anything of the sort....and none of the hundreds of workers needed to pull that off have come forward.
conspiracy theories are a waste of resources and talent. they get good people so concentrated on chasing shadows and their own tails that they forget the enemy staring back in the mirror. the REAL conspiracy is how many people waste time on these sorts of things rather than fixing the obviously broken parts of government right under their noses.
if these people who claim to know the "secret truth" really KNEW anything, and the "shadow government" they claim to know about was as powerful as "they" say it is..how come they aren't dead or arrested? to an all-powerful secret organization "perfect accidents" or trumped up arrests are pretty easy, right?.
they're not dead or arrested because either a)they're loons. they don't know anything. or b)they're plants..meant to distract you with wild stories. usually to get you to spin your wheels on useless things or to get you to do something that will get you arrested. most are probably "b" or people who repeat stories from "b". the FBI got caught doing this already...and if the FBI is doing it you can be sure other agencies are copying it. the ATF has been doing it for YEARS.
"Hal Turner worked for the FBI from 2002 to 2007 as an "agent provocateur" and was taught by the agency "what he could say that wouldn't be crossing the line," defense attorney Michael Orozco said. "His job was basically to publish information, which would cause other parties to act in a manner which would lead to their arrest,"
