Yes, I believe there's evidence 38%
No, that's ridiculous 45%
I'm not sure 17%
I agree with Workerbeecitizen "I can't believe 38% of the 23,78 people think our Gov. would murder. Un-freakin believable!"
"Involved" is such a fuzzy word. Plenty of libs would say the U.S. Government was involved because of our foreign policy, because the "bushies" are evil and are actually buddies with OBL, or the equally probable theory that GWB is an alien of some sort.
9-11? No fricken way...
The fact that NIST even had to answer these inane questions is absurd, as well as a complete waste of time and money.
Yes the government is complicit. The Clinton government. Bubba and his henchman allowed these monsters to think we are weak. So they kept coming at us.
My dopey brother thinks the collapse of the World Trade Center towers was the work of the government. He says it's all over the internet. I get very angry with him. The only time he was on the internet was when I sat him down at my computer and put him on an NFL site, and he had trouble manipulating the mouse. I think his bar buddies have fed him a heaping plate of bull crap.
Uhhhmmm . . . because the hypothesis is stupid?
The answers to these FAQs seem to be written in the tone of an annoyed teacher who has to explain a simple concept to a particularly dull student for the 814th time.
Well, these are libs. These are the types of people that would treaten ABC with losing their broadcast liscence if they air the Path to 9/11. They see conspiracy by government everywhere because that is how they would operate the government. THank God libs aren't in office any more.
Something to keep for for the future!
Because they're not IDIOTS!
Wonderful! Now, is there anything similar available regarding the Pentagon attack?
Watch the towers collapse.
It starts from the top where the planes hit.
bump for later...........
THE PENTAGON BUILDING PERFORMANCE REPORT
(Note: Not all of the text or pictures are listed here.
Following the September 11 crash at the Pentagon of an airliner commandeered by terrorists, the American Society of Civil Engineers established a building performance study team to examine the damaged structure and make recommendations for the future. The members of the team reviewed available information on the structure and the crash loading and drew on focused assessments by others.
In addition to analyzing the essential features of column response to impact, they investigated the residual frame capacity and the structural response to the fire. Plausible mechanisms for the response of the structure to the crash were established. Recommendations are offered for future design and construction along with suggestions for research and development.
