"I see the nose of the plane clearly entering the frame of one video and the tail of the plane entering the Pentagon in the other video." Many conspiracy Web sites have posted the video loops and report the films are inconclusive or were manipulated by the government. "Some folks will never be convinced," Fitton said. "But I'm hoping that these videos will dissuade reasonable people from falling into a trap with these conspiracy theories." University of Florida law professor Mark Fenster, author of the book "Conspiracy Theories: Secrecy and Power in American Culture," said the poll's findings reflect public anger at the unpopular Iraq war, realization that Saddam Hussein did not have weapons of mass destruction and growing doubts of the veracity of the Bush administration.
His unwavering and at times ruthless tactics, however, have brought him both praise and staunch criticism from around the world. Many have even gone as far as condemning him as a war criminal. The most common outcry against Kissinger’s policies has been in relation to the war in Vietnam and his realpolitik principles. The anti-war sentiment that had been created by an increasing number of US casualties and the “Peace by Honor” slogan that many felt was extending America’s involvement in Southeast Asia were just the beginnings of Kissinger’s criticisms. They blame him for the deaths of millions in the Indochina region by way of indiscriminate bombing campaigns to help influence local regimes (Branfman).
In a world that has been flooded by news, there is usually nothing that rises far above the smoldering lava of sensation—that which consumes all truth and absorbs all lies mixing them into a fiery lake or stew of bubbling nonsense. So much so, that to discover glanced over facts, to question people of importance within government or the machine itself leads to the branding of one as a “conspiracy theorist.” Truthfully, there are many people who lived life with doubt over the facts surrounding 9/11, who felt afraid to express it, probably because they feared being accused of “hating America,” of being “with the terrorists,” hence sympathizing with the people who were responsible for killing all of those who died on 9/11.

This essay Was written by Serj two days after the attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001. It caused a lot of controversy, particularly because many readers seemed to miss the message. Please understand, this essay is not attempting to justify the 9/11 attacks. When it was published, many mistook Serj's intentions and consequently denounced him, but if you pay attention to this small excerpt, it is impossible to say that Serj tried to justify the 9/11 attacks: ...my belief is that the terror will multiply if concrete steps are not taken to sponsor peace in the middle east, NOW. This does not mean that we should not find the guilty party(s), Bin Laden, or whoever they may be, and not try them.
Alternatively, was it a precise move in which the execution was needed to highlight the country which possessed this power? It may never be known why President Truman gave the green light on a technology–one which he was well aware would cause death and devastation far beyond what the world had ever seen on the battlefield. It is well documented that President Truman did not act on a hunch or without advice from many within the both the American government and those who fully understood the capabilities of this weapon. Truman’s inner council was made up of high-level government officials including the Secretary of State, Secretary of War, Asst. Secretary of War, Secretary of the Navy, Admiral William D. Leahy, General George C. Marshall, and all the members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Poli-Sci Top Secret America This documentary is a perfect example on how the government is extremely secretive and exhibits how the government handles certain situations that are not exactly the “American Way”. “The top-secret world that the government created in response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks has become so enormous, so unwieldy, and so secretive that no one knows how much money it costs, how many people it employs or exactly how many agencies duplicate work being done elsewhere” (The Washington Post). The result is that the system put in place to keep the United States safe may be putting us in greater danger and slowing chipping away at our civil liberties because it was said “The Gloves are coming off” (Bush). This Secret
Controversial acts were passed in an effort to control terrorism, the Patriot Act. The Patriot Act was passed by George Bush shortly after 9/11 to make it easier for the government to access personal information like; phone conversations, emails, and other private information. It also gives them the power to detain anyone who they suspect of terrorism for up to one week. The freedoms and privacy of all Americans have been curtailed because of this act. Even though most Americans are not terrorists, simply knowing that the government has these new powers and abilities to invade on their privacy is bothersome
Americans viewed their homeland as a place that they could confide in and feel safe about their existence. 9/11 left the entire country in an uproar, and everyone was frightened from the terror of the attacks. The attacks left little or no comfort at all to most Americans. Homeland Security was looked upon as a joke. The military defense was not looked at the same after the disaster of September the 11th.
Over the course of the war new weapons, vehicles and armor were created and for those who it protected or helped were the ones that most likely survived to fight another day. With the creation of these new technologies also can relief for the economy because the war economy took place where the normal economy was failing because the US was buying these new technologies from companies that were in the US which put money into the economy (war economy). The war itself cost the US $22,625,253,000 and it cost the Allied Powers in total all together $125,690,477,000. All of that money is what went back into the economy of failing countries and brought the US out of the Great Depression. There were about 35,000,000 uniformed people who were killed, wounded, or POW [prisoners of war]
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the technology magazine Popular Mechanics have investigated and rejected the claims made by 9/11 conspiracy theories.  The civil engineering community accepts that the impacts of jet aircraft at high speeds in combination with subsequent fires, not controlled demolition, led to the collapse of the Twin Towers.During the initial confusion surrounding the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, the BBC published the names and identities of what they believed to be some of the hijackers.  Some of the people named were later discovered to be alive, a fact that was seized upon by 9/11 conspiracy theorists as proof that the hijackings were faked.  The BBC explained that the initial confusion may have arisen because the names they reported back in 2001 were common Arabic and Islamic names.  In response to a request from the BBC, the FBI said that it was confident to have identified all nineteen hijackers, and that none of the other inquiries had raised the issue of doubt about their identities.
