Why do we have troops in Afghanistan?

We have to stop Al Qaeda.

Why do we have to stop Al Qaeda?

They are terrorists who attacked us on 9/11.

Where is the proof they attacked us on 9/11?

It is in the 9/11 Report.

Why should I believe the 9/11 Report?

It is official.

If it is official, does that mean it is necessarily accurate?

No, but it is.

Then why does the 9/11 Report omit mention of Building 7 and the simulation exercises?

So these "hijackers," thought to be Al Qaeda, may really have come from somewhere else?

He's a con artist.

Why have Arabic translators said that the person in the videos never confesses to 9/11?

They are bought off.

Who bought them off?

Conspiracy theorists did.

Which conspiracy theorists -- the ones who say bin Laden conspired with Al Qaeda?


Which ones?

The ones that say our government acted to attack the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Why would they make up a conspiracy?

They want to convince people to get our troops out of Afghanistan.

Why do we have troops in Afghanistan?

Dean Hartwell's book, "Planes without Passengers: the Faked Hijackings of 9/11," reached the top of Amazon's charts for large print books on history. He has authored three others: "Facts Talk but the Guilty Walk:the 9/11 No Hijacker Theory and Its (more...)
