9/11 conspiracies brought to you by the History Channel.

The History Channel put together an interesting show called The 9/11 Conspiracies: Fact or Fiction. The premise of the show describes each and every conspiracy brought to you by a Billy Ocean favorite Alex Jones, the directors of Loose Change, and various other believers of government involvement in the terrorist attacks.

While it did do a great job in attempting to debunk each and every theory the problem was the time allotted for each. I read some early reviews of the show and most seemed to praise it as a great threat to the 9/11 truth movement. There were some issues I had with the presentation.

Given that there are so many theories the show tried to debunk all of them within a relatively short amount of time. The expert response to each claim was brief and didn’t go into as much detail as I’d like. Watching it I could imagine some nut job sitting at home saying “yeah…but” through out each segment. I understand they could probably spend an entire hour on the idea that towers were the result of a controlled explosion, but I’m of the mindset that all evidence must be made clear to it’s audience.

That being said it’s a great resource in case one encounters someone who tries to sway you into believing that the government was behind the attacks. Some theories I’ve never heard of before the show, such as the claim that the cell phone calls made from United 93 were faked, which is despicable when you think about it. If interested I suggest you check it out.

  1. I won’t be able to watch that program as I don’t get the History Channel. So I pose this question, did the program raise the point that it was all part of the Canadian conspiracy to make every sign in the world bilingual and to put cheese and gravy on all french fries. Think about it.

  2. Doh! I had so meant to watch this after you told me about it.

    Honestly, I think “Penn and Teller’s Bullshit!” did a good one on the topic of 9/11 conspiracies, but of course it was even more brief, and boiled down to “You are insulting the victims of the attacks and the intelligence of the rest of us by peddling this inane crap,” but I agreed with them.

  3. How a couple of journalists from popular mechanics can be considered “experts” against physics professors from the truth movement seems strange.
    While it is pointless to debate detail on a blog such as this, it must be said that they did not explain how the entire plane that allegedly crashed in Pennsylvania disappeared with no visible wreckage , how the heat from diesel fuel could make WTC7 collapse, or where is the footage of the actual plane hitting the Pentagon has been hidden and why. There are other glaring ommisions, but the above are the main points.

    If you look at the results from the highly regarded Zogby poll run in the U.S,

    you will find that roughly half of Americans believe it was an inside job. That is just the U.S. In Europe, Canada and down here in Australia, the mark is closer to 70%.
    Make no bones about it, the whole world fears the U.S now as much as the world did Hitler in the 1940’s. And the actions of the U.S political elite will burden American’s children and grandchildren with the same war guilt that the Germans carry now due to Hitlers actions.
    My grandad fought as a U.S Marine in WWII and instilled in me a strong loathing of fascist militarism. How he would be turning in his grave to see the U.S become the very thing he fought against all those years ago.
    Americans are by and large good people, and just wish to live their lives peacefully like every other person in this planet. They don’t deserve the fate that is coming to them. God bless the American people. God curse the murderers that control them
