Did Bush do 9/11?
Were we Told the Truth?
The topic of 9/11 conspiracy theories can be very challenging to understand. This is because an American citizen is unable to understand why their own people would be killed by the government. The most talked about and potentially believable theory is that the Twin Towers were taken down via controlled demolition after the planes had stuck the towers. This theory is known as the "Inside Job".
Many conspiracy theorists suggest that President Bush had a hand in the 9/11 attacks. They believe that Bush wanted to engage in war with Iraq but he had to no reason to. By initiating these attacks, and blaming it on Iraq, President Bush had a reason to deploy troops in Iraq.
Trading Increase Theory
In the days leading up to 9/11 an extraordinary amount of sell options were placed on United Airlines and American Airlines stocks. This caused speculation that insiders may have known in advance of the coming attacks and placed their assets into a selling position.
Stand Down Theory
A common claim among conspiracy theorists is that the North American Aerospace Defense Command issued a stand down order or deliberately scrambled fighters late to allow the hijacked airplanes to reach their targets without interference. According to this theory, NORAD had the capability of locating and intercepting planes on 9/11, and its failure to do so indicates a government conspiracy to allow the attacks to occur.
Pentagon Missile Theory
These conspiracy theorists argue that the Pentagon was hit by a missile launched by the U.S. government. Some claim that the holes in the Pentagon walls were far too small to have been made by a Boeing 757. They say, "How does a plane 125 feet wide and 155 feet long fit into a hole which is only 60 feet across?"
