    Good list. I’m more of the opinion that the government knew about the attack in advance and simply let it occur (rather than planning it all themselves), but this was a good and unbiased list. A lot of 9/11 theories are based on ignorance or psuedoscience, but this list pretty much sticks to the facts and let’s the reader decide.

      There is a lot of info in this top 10 that implies more that they planned it then only knew about it, but with what they give to us you can believe what you want

      i didnt see hardly any facts here at all. silverstein for one lost billions of dollars. he didnt profit at all. insurance paid out a little over 4 billion and just to rebuild will cost over 9 billion. truthers do believe all of these to be true though so i guess that makes the list accurate in that sense.

        Silverstein made $500 million on the insurance covering his construction of an even taller wider Tower 7.

          you dont make anything if the costs are higher then what they paid. it will cost 9 billion to rebuild. insurance paid 4 billion. that would be a negative 4 billion.

            He’s not RE-building anything. You insurance gives you $1000 for your totaled yugo, you go out and buy a new mercedes, and you’ve “LOST” a lot of money? Oh, and genius George, 4 from 9 is FIVE, the way we do math here.

            sorry the 4 is right next to the 5. its called a typo.

            but please tell me where you can buy a new mercedes for $1000. lets say a new mercedes cost 50k. now after you deduct the 1k insurance gave you, you are now 49k in the hole. does that make sense to you? probably not. you dont seem very bright.

            your analogy is as bad as your critical thinking.

              In the words of The Cat In The Hat, “You’re not just wrong, you’re stupid.” 

              Larry Silverstein received $4.577 billion in insurance money from the destruction of the World Trade Center Complex. He tried to get $7.1 billion by stating that the towers being hit by 2 planes meant that he should be entitled to 2 claims against the terrorism clause of his insurance . However, after several court appearances, he was allotted the above figure.

              The cost to rebuild the new 1 World Trade Center building was $3.9 billion. Only $1 billion of which Mr. Silverstein put up from his insurance money. The rest was funded by the state of NY and Port Authority, as they are the owners of the complex and Mr. Silverstein merely held a lease on buildings 1, 2, 4, and 5. That means that he made $3.577 billion on the destruction of the towers. (Granted that number will go down slightly once construction begins on buildings 4 and 5.)

              Building 7 was the only building in the WTC complex that was owned solely by Larry Silverstein. It cost $700 million to rebuild and he owed about $400 million on its mortgage. That comes out to $1.1 billion. He had received $861 million from insurance on the old building and $475 million in Liberty Bonds. If you need help with that, (clearly you aren’t very good at math) that is $1.336 billion. Which means that he had about $236 million leftover after the rebuild of WTC7.

              Are you still with me? Let’s do just a little more math.

              If he has $3.577 billion left over in insurance money from buildings 1, 2, 4, and 5 and $236 million from building 7, that means that he came out $3.813 billion richer than before 9/11.

              Does that sound like he lost money to you? I didn’t think so. So the next time you want to condescend someone and tell them that they “don’t seem very bright”, maybe you should do just a little research, lest you come out looking like the one who isn’t very bright.

            2. George at |

              See this is the problem with conspiracy theorists. They aren’t very bright and they go to a conspiracy website such as infowars or abovetopsecret and think that counts as legitimate research.

              Silverstein only got a total of $4.5 billion out of all the towers. Out of that $4.5 billion he was only allowed to keep 57% of it. The rest had to be paid to the Port Authority. The cost to rebuild the complex is over $8 billion and according to his deal with the Port Authority he still has been paying the $120 million a year in rent since 9/11. That is roughly $1.5 billion he has had to pay for a set of buildings he wasn’t making any money off of until very recently. Your math is absolute garbage but I am not surprised considering where you do your “research”. You are using information that is almost a decade old and lies by omission by failing to mention the rent he still had to pay and that he only got 57% of the insurance money with the rest going to the Port Authority. This is why everyone thinks conspiracy theorists are stupid. You refuse to do adequate research and believe the first article you read that coincides with your preconceived notions of “what really happened”(coincidentally another website you probably get your “research” from).

        Silverstein is very rich, and also has access to a huge amount of rebuilding money through Liberty Bonds.

          please tell me where you can buy a new mercedes for 1000. this is where your logic, or lack thereof, falls apart. lets say a new mercedes costs 50k. now the insurance company gives you 1k for your totaled yugo. now you have to make up the 49k to pay for the rest of the mercedes. your analogy is correct yet your conclusion is wrong. silverstein is going to have to come up with an extra 5 billion that the insurance didn’t cover to rebuild. he isn’t making any money off of this. he is losing 5 billion.

            I love the fact that’s you think you know me. And I love being lumped into a category, that’s always fun. I don’t know where you are getting your information from but everything from my previous comment was readily available information on the Wikipedia websites of Larry Silverstein and The World Trade Center. Not “conspiracy websites”. And if you will notice, I never claimed even once that he had foreknowledge of the event. I was simply quoting numbers. Sure Wikipedia is not the end all, be all, infallible source for 100% factual information, nothing on the internet is. But it is pretty close and widely recognized as such.

    If this were all true and the gov’t knew of this and was 3000 plus people died, then if I were the “Truthers” I would be very afraid. If the gov’t could be so caprice and killed innocent people, then there would be no reason at all for the men in black to show up at their door one day and snuff them out. I think that the military had knowledge of some event happening but didn’t know what.

    I wonder what people think of the ’93 World Trade attack, maybe Clinton knew that it was going to end in failure and didn’t do a thing about it. He was probably too busy in the the oval office, nudge, nudge, wink, wink!

      Hypothetically speaking, if this was an “inside job”, it was clearly done for a specific purpose, which was to secure the support of the American people before going to war in the Middle East. Since this goal was attained so rapidly after 9/11, there would no need for men in black to do dirty deeds “door to door”. Thanks for reading the list and leaving a comment.

      One of the biggest falsehoods is that those planes could take down those buildings in the manner we saw. Structurally speaking, the 1993 attack was more threatening, and you see how that failed. No, these terrorists had some help.

      Do yourself a favour and read Susan Lindauers book “Extreme Predudice” – when youv’e done that and if you are still of the opinion that the government were not complicit in 911 Ill be very surprised.

    Al-Qaeda or “New World Order” controls the story online regarding the 9 11 Conspiracy

    My name is Aaron Fleszar and I’d like to expose, with your help, the largest conspiracy in world history. Most people don’t believe in conspiracies or conspiracy theories, I know because I was one of them. The thing about a conspiracy is it cannot be proven, if it could, it wouldn’t be a conspiracy. I will try and make this as simple as possible so that you can follow my logic and likely reach the same conclusions.

    What do we know about Osama Bin Laden that we haven’t been told by the media? We know that he is a spokesperson for Al-Qaeda. Once or twice a year, this guy appears in video, pointing his finger, from a tape that mysteriously arrives at the Al-Jazeera network. If Osama Bin Laden is only spokesperson, and not a mastermind, who makes up the organization behind him?

    Even a president is only a spokesperson. A president surrounds himself with an administration that advises him. There is always a force behind a president with an agenda. Sometimes that agenda is known, sometimes it’s not.

    Are we being mislead by Osama Bin Laden and the organization behind him? Could Osama be the spokesperson for a New World Order, the richest people in the world who would like to take over the government? Could Osama be a distraction, and a catalyst, for starting an endless war on terror, increasing defense department spending, lining the pockets of defense contractors, and driving up the price of oil?

    Could the attacks on 9/11 be attacks against capitalism? Is Al-Qaeda or New World Order’s goal to destroy capitalism? Would destroying capitalism allow the richest people in the world a chance to implement socialism, get wealthier by collapsing the dollar, and allow them to institute a one world currency, only to enslave the rest of the world to their New World Order government?

    Everyone knows that something happened on 9/11 that is being covered up, but what is it? Is it that planes didn’t collapse 2 buildings which fell with precision as if they were being brought down by a controlled demolition? Is it that no one ever talks about the third building which collapsed that never got hit by an airplane? Were the planes nothing more than misdirection, or an illusion, created by Al-Qaeda/New World Order, also known as “the Illuminati?”

    Written across thousands of get rich quick scams online there is a code. Al-Qaeda or NWO appears to be using the internet to take over all ecommerce and media. Several people making up this code are look a likes for people associated with the current administration, in addition to media moguls, and CEO’s.

    Several of the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists make up this code online. They are wanted for US embassy bombings in Kenya, Obama’s family’s birthplace, and Indonesia, a place where Obama spent many years as a child.

    These are the aliases of Most Wanted Terrorists. Check out Google images;
    Mark Joyner Simpleology-Seif Al Adel (Sarah Palin’s book Palinology)
    John Ferrero-Ramadan Shallah
    Yaro Starak-Umar Patek
    Armand Morin-Noordin M Top (said to have been killed in Indonesia and now removed from the FBI’s most wanted list)
    Michael Filsaime-Ali Sayyid Muhamed Mustafa al-Bakri (Die Hard 4 “Fire Sale” The cyber attack on our infrastructure)
    Dr. Mani Sivasubramanian-Ammar Mansour Bouslim
    Carl Galletti-Ahmed Garbaya, Samir Salwwan
    Ted Ciuba-Abdul Rahman Yasin

    What’s interesting about the Al-Qaeda organization online, that literally own the internet, is that this same group of marketing experts ran the last election on Youtube. Could the organization behind Osama Bin Laden be the New World Order Illuminati? Could the organization behind the election of Obama, be the same group? Could Osama be the look a like to represent Obama, and Biden, Bi(nla)den?

    It’s not a conspiracy when it’s taking place right in front of you. There is just an overwhelming amount of misinformation to try and prevent you from connecting the dots. Keep in mind that the Illuminati, or New World Order, are masters at illusion.

    It’s important for the future of America that you tell others immediately about this information. You can learn more by simply searching my name. Email and text everyone you know. When enough people start demanding honest answers, we will finally learn the truth to what really happened on 9/11.

    Thank you for reading this,
    Aaron M Fleszar

    Very well done, Heather.

Simple truth: jet fuel didn’t cause this.

      except that the steel didnt melt. aluminum from the plane melted though. at the temps that the jet fuel was burning at steel loses over 50% of it structural strength. more then enough to cause the tube within a tube that the wtc towers were to collapse especially with the big giant holes in them further weakening the structure.

Doesnt anybody think it strange that even 10yrs on the US media have been banned from showing footage from that day.

      plus where did you hear that the us media is banned from showing footage? you can hardly turn on the tv without seeing another special on it with an hour of footage. also the part of the pentagon that was it was under renovation. hardly anything was in there at all much less the records for the “missing” 2 trillion. funny how the number keeps going up isnt it? now it is up to 4 trillion? must be inflation. lol.

      what is amusing is that when rumsfeld said that he was quoting a report from back in 1999. a report that was made public then. this is what happens when you go to conspiracy websites that pick and choose the “facts” that they are going to show you. you get an out of context quote that means nothing. now people like you think this was a new report that came out on 9/10/11 and not the truth that it actually came out in 1999.

    Mossad was caught read handed. They exploded at least one truck bomb, tried to explode another on the George Washington bridge. Used other vans to transport explosives.

    Ever since the Blackhawk helicopters were shot down in Mogadishu or the USS Cole was attacked, it has been Sunni jihadist that were responsible. And these “Old men of the Mountain terrorist were supported and armed by the royal princes and sheiks of Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Pakistan. The attacks on New York on 9-11 and the atrocities committed in Africa, India , Iraq and Libya were all done by groups like Al Qaeda.

    The American media, influenced by Jewish plutocrats, wants to promote a “yellow Press” journalism campaign that is very similar to how William Randolph Hearst agitated for a war against Spain in 1898. The Spanish were accused of atrocities, and this was the pretext used to confiscate many of the Spanish colonies. Later in the early 1900′s the Jewish plutocratic cabal that instituted the privately-owned Federal Reserve Bank used Bernays and Woodrow Wilson to start a similar propaganda campaign against Kaiser Wilhelm’s Germany. Though Germany, like Iran today, did no harm to America, the wealthy Zionist disciples of Theodor Herzl insisted America aid England in World War II so that England could wrest Palestine from turkey and make it an independent Jewish state. This was America’s contribution of gentile blood and money to the Balfor Agreement of 1917.

    We see a nuclear armed Pakistan, a nation rife with Sunni jihadist who are out to murder Indians and even many of their own countrymen. Pakistan is allying with China to build a submarine base to attack the Seventh fleet and shut of oil from the Persian Gulf. Pakistan is using Chinese engineers and technology to build three more nuclear power stations, and have a source of fissile nuclear material. Pakistan is also harboring the terrorist who attack American troops in Afghanistan and Indian troops in the south.

    Yet America seems to be under he spell of some unholy alliance. America acts as a vassal to Tel Aviv with their AIPAC funded politicians who willingly implement Israeli designs for Iran. The Saudis and Qataris, who supply much of the oil to America have made the progressive politicians their personal Janissaries, aiding these sheiks in their efforts to re-establish the Sunni empire of Suleiman the Magnificent. There is alliance of Zionist plutocrats, Sunni oil sheiks and their indebted, progressive Western politicians who need money for their socialist Potemkin Village. As a wise proverb says, “The borrower is the servant to the lender”. The US and European politicians have betrayed their citizens, forcing them to cosign a loan called the national debt and forcing heir citizens to comply with the terms, conditions and pledges of collateral. It seems as if one of the terms of this alliance is the destruction, eradication or enslavement of Christians and those who practice Shia. This is compatible with the goals of the globalist Marxist and those of the sheiks of Qatar and Saudi Arabia. What we see is the destruction of every rival to Riyadh and the chaos brought to every nation with a Shia leader. Once vibrant countries like Iraq and Libya are now ruled by savage warlords of various Sunni terrorist sects. And these warlords exist on the money and arms that the Saudis give them or through the arms and money America channels to them through their friends in Syria . (This despite the fact that it was their Syrian free army friends who killed their ambassador at Benghazi.)

    This is just a letter to know not all Americans support this tacit war on all Christians, Hindus and Shia throughout the world.

    Heavens_Joke: See this is why people think conspiracy theorists aren’t very bright. You do all of your “research” on websites like infowars and abovetopsecret and you end up with decades old info that is no longer correct or relevant. Silverstein got a grand total of $4.6 billion and that is only if you count the money insurance companies are still fighting to not pay out. See the insurance policy wasn’t even finalized when 9/11 happened. Silverstein wanted to only insure the complex for $1.5 billion but his lenders wouldn’t let him. He ended up insuring it for the minimum they would let him which was $3.5 billion. Does that sound like someone who knew about it ahead of time and was trying to make money? Of course not. Also the entire time the buildings were destroyed until they had paying tenants, he was still required to pay the Port Authority $120 million a year in rent. That was in their lease agreement. Funny how you failed to calculate that extra $1.5 billion in rent in your calculations. Also per their agreement he only gets to keep 57% of the insurance money. The rest goes to the Port Authority as well. Also he hasn’t received a dime of the bonds yet because none of it has been released. Also he only received 60% of the Liberty bonds which means over the life of the 80 years left in the lease he will only make $3-$4 billion. He won’t see that of course because he isn’t immortal and would be dust by then. His interest payments are currently killing him considering he has only received around $400 million of the insurance money and has had to borrow for the rest. Over half of the buildings for site are on hold because Silverstein can’t come up with the funds to finish them.

    This is the problem when you do your research at conspiracy websites. You get straight out false information as well as irrelevant, misleading, and lying by omission information. You obviously fall under the category of “not very bright” for your reliance on conspiracy websites to tell you the truth.
