McALLEN, September 13 - What really happened on Sept. 11, 2001? Why did the Twin Towers collapse so quickly? Why do people still question the validity of the plan that hit the Pentagon?

McAllen residents Eloy Gonzalez and Leo Krayola say they will continue to raise awareness of such issues. On the 11th of each month they hold a banner up, sometimes on a busy street corner in McAllen, sometimes outside the offices of The Monitor and Entravision.

“The response is mostly favorable. I would say 95 percent of the people give us a thumbs up, or honk their horns. About five percent raise their middle finger. We plan to keep this up,” Krayola said.

Gonzalez said there is a growing movement of skeptics who do not buy the government’s account of what happened on Sept. 11. Much of the discussion takes place on the Internet, on forums such as blogs and MySpace.
