9/11 “Conspiracy Theories”

Posted on: September 11, 2006

What with this being the 5th anniversary of 9/11, and with the 9/11 conspiracy (aka 9/11 truth) voices rising, I figured this weekend was a good time to get myself up to speed on the various theories. So after reading a few web pages on the question, I watched two videos: (1) Loose Change; and (2) Perspective on 9/11. I found both videos to be highly interesting and worth watching — certainly worth blogging about.

But actually, these videos spurred too many thoughts in my head to write them all down. So, as usual, I’ve recorded some (rather lengthy — sorry!) podcasts laying out my thinking. Here they are:

(96) 9/11 Conspiracy Theories, Part I: My Analysis (Here, I canvas the various flavors of the 9/11 so-called conspiracy theories, and give my two cents on what I think is true.)
(97) 9/11 Conspiracy Theories, Part II: Opportunism (I suspect that the drivers of most 9/11 conspiracy theories are Enneagram 5s who cannot understand impulsive yet accurate opportunism (ie. action without thought that achieves success).)

I need to listen to all these podcasts of yours yet – I just thought I’d also mention that I see that the RU Sirius show also has one I haven’t listened to yet. It’s apparently some sort of roundtable on the 9/11 theories:

I have no idea how good this one will be, but in general, I like the show.

It seems like 9/11 is on a lot of folks mind – and I’m not sure it’s just the 5-year anniversary. Personally, I’m still not convinced of much after seeing Loose Change, but it looks like you read more/watched more than I did on the topic. I *do* think there’s probably more to the story, and it is a puzzler that the administration would try to thwart the (allegedly independent) 9/11 investigation – “they hate our freedoms” isn’t an explanation that every adult will buy for very long. Also, PNAC’s phrasing of a “new Pearl harbor” – and all the media’s use of that phrase over and over and over again (without mentioning the PNAC document) does seem awfully strange. And we have plenty of proof that the U.S. government has done or planned some terrible things – so many examples, but Operation Northwoods comes to mind first.

Anyway, I’ll listen to your podcasts shortly. It looks like you have a lot on your mind, judging by the amount of time there. 🙂
