The 9/11 Conspiracy Theory: Was 9/11 an Inside Job?

"Examines Loose Change's arguments, the desire to be famous, and the mentality of conspiracy theorists in general. Alternates between using logic, facts, and humor."

@kindernacht you have been quite a stand-up commentator here. I wouldn't have given johnnykarate the time of day. This person obviously has no interest in reading and studying this stuff for themselves. Personally, I have looked at many, many sources of data. One point being that I don't believe everything in Loose Change. I know planes hit the trade center towers, and most likely the Pentagon. However, it doesn't mean I don't use my critical thinking skills and expand my mind by looking into the other theories. It really helps you sort out fact from fiction.

The evidence from Building 7 in no way allows for the collapse as it did. The one side of the tower which was alleged damaged (at least one firefighter saw this too) if in fact collapsed as NIST points out, then it would have toppled over and NOT gone straight down into its own footprint pile. There would have been a progressive collapse, starting on that side, and then you would have seen perhaps 1/2 of the building fall away. There are many building collapse videos which show things like this. Whether the building would have completely fallen or not, I don't know. Steel frame buildings have never fallen like that, and wtc 7 was a traditional/modern steel building.
