[This article has been modified to take into account some of the points that esbe has raised.]

A growing consensus of Americans (and, in my case, Canadians) believe that 9/11 was a "false flag" operation carried out by the Bush administration and their agents in the American military and intelligence communities.  (1)

According to many people who have studied the situation, 9/11 was not caused by 19 Middle-Eastern hijackers; it was an inside job like the Gulf of Tonkin incident in 1964 and the bombing of the U.S.S. Liberty in 1967. (2)

The conspiracy seems to have been aimed at frightening the American people into agreeing to attacks on Afghanistan, Iraq, and Iran. 



The intent appears to be to capture Middle-East oil and establish American hegemony before the American economy itself collapses from debt and the greenback falls as the world’s premier currency at the hands of regimes who would like to see it ousted from that place. (3)  

According to Michael Meacher, the administration had been negotiating with the Taliban for a pipeline right-of-way through Afghanistan. They had offered a carpet of gold or a carpet of bombs and the Taliban refused the gold.  (4)
Some say that the plans for the invasion of Afghanistan were already in place before 9/11; that the troops were already positioned.  They allege that George Bush had the necessary papers to go to war ready for signing on his desk. (5) 

In my view, a view which is not shared by many others in the 9/11 Truth Movement, the North and South Towers were not hit by passenger planes, but by remote-controlled drones.  These allegations explain the pod the proponent of this view point to on the belly of the aircraft that hit Tower 2, the testimony of an eyewitness that the plane that hit Tower 2 had no passenger windows and was not a passenger jet, and the tight flight manouevres that would have rendered a pilot unconscious and would have been overridden by the plane’s onboard computer. (6) 

The people I have found convincing point out that all the aircraft involved in 9/11 were followed from the first indications of abnormality by air traffic controllers, but that neither NORAD nor the Pentagon responded to the emergencies.  Certainly the FAA knew by 8:30 a.m. on Sept. 11 that an emergency was playing out, a time well before the first crash.  This time allowance would have been sufficient for NORAD to have launched interceptors and have brought down the “airliners.” (7) 

Again, the people I have found convincing argue that the North and South Towers, as well as World Trade Center Building 7, were brought down by thousands of cutter charges.  This explanation accounts for the explosive auras bursting outwards as they collapsed and the demolition “squibs” observable in the news coverage.  The fact that the buildings were brought down by controlled demolition is also inferable from the time it took the buildings to collapse (around 8 seconds), and corroborated by reputable architects, engineers, emergency responders, and demolitions experts.  (8) 

To bring a building down by controlled demolition takes extensive planning over days, if not weeks, moving the date of preparation well back before 9/11.  Nineteen Middle-Eastern hijackers with boxcutters could not possibly have engaged in the extensive planning required or have installed thousands of explosives in the three WTC buildings.  (9)
