Conspiracies Abound

Questioning everything about 9/11

By Kurt Brighton

“The Terror Conspiracy: Deception, 9/11, And The Loss Of Liberty”

By Jim Marrs, published by The Disinformation Company

The unthinkable happened five years ago on a balmy day in September, and reams of paper as well as thousands of terrabytes have been devoted to the subject. And when something unthinkable happens, people start to look outside of the realm of the thinkable.

In addition to triggering an instantaneous clamp-down on civil liberties, the expansion of domestic spying programs unheard of since the COINTEL program of the ’60s and ’70s, billions of dollars in increased Pentagon spending, billions of dollars dumped into private defense contracts, an ongoing war against a nebulous enemy that can never be shown to have been decisively defeated, and an ongoing war in a country that had little or nothing to do with the attacks, the events of 9/11 also spawned a surfeit of conspiracy theorists.

Funny thing is, once you get past the knee-jerk dismissal of alternative theorists as wild-eyed crackpots colluding in mom’s basement while wearing tinfoil hats, there’s a lot that doesn’t add up about the government’s official story. A whole lot.
