"FUD (Fear Uncertainty Doubt) is generally a strategic attempt to influence perception by disseminating negative and dubious or false information." -Wikipedia

I gave up knocking heads with disinfobots concerning the 9/11 attacks back in 2009.   It was after I read this, and it finally appeared hopeless.   Barack Obama, the stuffed suit who could speak for hours and say exactly nothing, would continue the September 11th cover-up.   The 9/11 Commission, which the two chairmen admitted was "set up to fail," and was largely based on testimony extracted through torture in secret dungeons, was to be taken at face value by Obama's administration.   Obama also went to great lengths to protect the CIA torturers and to persecute CIA whistleblowers like John Kiriakou.

It was by then a nightmarish media environment.   Most so-called "alternative" press wouldn't listen to actual, substantial complaints with corroborated evidence of government malfeasance and lying about 9/11.   Accusing the government of criminal activity made one a "conspir acy theorist" by definition, even if the crimes were true.   "Conspiracy theorist" describes every police investigator in the world; that's what they do.   Intelligent writers who pushed to discredit the government's treasonous 9/11 cover-up were ignored.  

"Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort." -US Constitution

The Bush White House committed Treason the moment they shielded the Saudi Arabian government from accountability, after the Saudis were caught giving material aid to the San Diego hijacker cell.   This protection of the Saudi regime was, and remains, "Aid and Comfort," as per the US Constitution.

By 2009, the 9/11 "Truth" Movement was so inundated with disinformation that it had become a laughingstock.   The easily-discredited claims (lies) contaminated the greater issue and soiled dissenters across the board.   "Turd blossom" was a Karl Rove phrase that could describe what the movement had devolved into.   The media, whether corporate or foundation-funded, could find people ranting about "the Jews" or the Illuminati, the Lizard People, the missiles, holograms, mini-nukes, or space-beam weapons vaporizing the Twin Towers.  

Many trolls, and some public personalities, appeared to be professional disinformation artists hard at work concocting and posting this crap online, which others repeated to their own detriment.   One cannot easily prove that a specific person is a paid shill, a disinformation agent, a cyber agent provocateur, but be assured they are out there, and "out there."

DISINFORMATION TO DISCREDIT

Author Thomas Pynchon wrote, "If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don't have to worry about answers."   I'll go one better and in the process explain modern cyber disinformation:   If they can get you asking stupid questions, then their lapdog media can dismiss you as a "nut."

That's how it works, people.   Well beyond questions, they have long lassoed a whole generation of newbies into reposting pseudo evidence about the 9/11 attacks, as if these were established facts.   That's FUD, using bogus evidence to taint those who choose to pass it on.  

"A honey pot, in intelligence jargon, is a tempting source of information or 'dangle' that is set out to lure intended victims into a trap. Ultimately the honey pot is violently and maliciously discredited so as to destroy the credibility of anything stuck to it by association."
-Michael Ruppert, "Crossing the Rubicon," p. 184

Photographs or sound bites are taken out of context to fabricate some new angle that no one had ever noticed before.   More often than not, that was because these new findings were patently false.   So much sloppy research and twisted factoids peppered the 9/11 "Truth" universe that the very concept of truth itself was devalued in the process.

WHAT IS TRUTH?

Dictionary.com provides a clue:

"1. the true  or actual state of a matter...
2. conformity with fact or reality; verity: the truth of a statement..."

Gravity holds us down on planet earth.   True.   It always has, and this is reinforced by countless experiments, observations, and measurements.   It is undisputed, and it cannot be disproven.

Things are much less clear when we consider the complex events leading to the September 11th 2001 attacks, the day itself and the aftermath.   Matters are so cloudy that often we simply cannot know the truth of a specific question from the available public data.  

Period.
