government actions leading to 911
“Nobody in our Government, and I don’t think the prior Government could envision flying planes into buildings” - George Bush.

However, in the two years before the Sept. 11 attacks, the North American Aerospace Defense Command conducted exercises simulating what the White House says was unimaginable at the time: hijacked airliners used as weapons to crash into targets and cause mass casualties.
One of the imagined targets was the World Trade Center. In another exercise, jets performed a mock shootdown over the Atlantic Ocean of a jet supposedly laden with chemical poisons headed toward a target in the United States. In a third scenario, the target was the Pentagon — but that drill was not run after Defense officials said it was unrealistic, NORAD and Defense officials say.

NORAD, in a written statement, confirmed that such hijacking exercises occurred. It said the scenarios outlined were regional drills, not regularly scheduled continent-wide exercises.

“Numerous types of civilian and military aircraft were used as mock hijacked aircraft,” the statement said. “These exercises tested track detection and identification; scramble and interception; hijack procedures; internal and external agency coordination and operational security and communications security procedures.”

A White House spokesman said Sunday that the Bush administration was not aware of the NORAD exercises. But the exercises using real aircraft show that at least one part of the government thought the possibility of such attacks, though unlikely, merited scrutiny.

On April 8, the commission investigating the Sept. 11 attacks heard testimony from national security adviser Condoleezza Rice that the White House didn’t anticipate hijacked planes being used as weapons.

On April 12, a watchdog group, the Project on Government Oversight, released a copy of an…...

Conspiracy Theories

...The basis of conspiracy theories shows trends of repetition throughout history that implement fear into everyday life. True or untrue, conspiracies are still followed, almost religiously, by many people. Theories that are wrong are still being pursued by people, and the choices they make based on those theories influence how they live their life. Conspiracies start from a source that is displeased by a particular group or activity. The source of the conspiracies usually makes them to slander the group that they are displeased with. The global catastrophe, which was known as the end of the world, compelled fear into the minds of people everywhere. For decades, 2012 was prophesized as being the end. The Mayans had carved a calendar that mysteriously stopped on December 21, 2012. Because the Mayans were such a highly respected and omniscient civilization, people instantly believed that the world would end based on their predictions from thousands of years ago. “The Maya invented an accurate calendar almost 2,000 years ago which measured time in 394-year periods known as baktuns and some anthropologists believe the 13th baktun ends on December 21. While some experts say the calendar never actually predicted an apocalypse, it has been interpreted that way by doom mongers all over the world.”(“End” N.A.). Others believed that a massive planet, four times the size of Jupiter, called Nibiru would collide with the earth or come close enough to shift the world’s polar axis and cause...

9/11 Conspiracy Theories

... above them. At the last minute, he said NBC dropped the story, and told him to keep quiet or his life would be in danger (Steiger, p. 332). Conspiracy Theorists believe that Rodriguez’s evidence and accounts of that morning clearly demonstrates that the World Trade Center was unmistakably brought down by a controlled demolition. Rodriguez lost over two hundred friends the day the towers collapsed and he firmly feels he now represents their voices for speaking the truth of this fateful day. Many have never heard or been exposed to Rodriguez’s story because it demonstrates the 9/11 investigation as a sham and would lead people to believe that the government is involved in a cover-up about the truth and validity of the World Trade Center disaster.

Conspiracy on Aids

...Conspiracy of AIDS Thousands of conspiracy theories are tossed about everyday making outrageous claims about something not fully understood by the theories creators. On subject in particular that has been the subject to many of these often ridiculous accusations are ones about AIDS. Today, most people believe that HIV and AIDS originated in Africa. However, the reality is that no one really knows where the AIDS virus originated. Due to numerous counts of cases and other important factors of AIDS, there are many different possibilities that have been proposed regarding the derivation of the disease. For instance, the conspiracy theory that was first introduced to the people of the world was that AIDS was contracted by a monkey bite. But now we know it is impossible. Some people say that it wasn’t nature that created AIDS: it was the U.S Government. According to this conspiracy theory, the U.S Government made AIDS in effort to rule out homosexuals and black people because these two minority groups are two of the most disliked minority groups in America. Though the conspiracy theory, known as the AIDS/bio warfare theory, proposes some suspicious and persuasive arguments, there is no possible way that the U.S Government created HIV. First of all, it is important to know what HIV and AIDS are. The Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) causes acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) HIV is a virus that attacks the immune system. It is a Lentivirus, which means “slow virus...

911 Research Paper

... States planned the 9/11 terrorist attacks to use them as pretext to invade the Middle East to take control of their oil sources. According to him the United States “masterminded the 9/11 incident and pointed an accusing finger at Muslim countries.” He also stated that “To achieve that goal, they (the United States) launched preemptive attacks on Afghanistan and Iraq, and Iran was their next target, but wise policies adopted by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Aeyyed Ali Khamenei anlong with the unity of the Iranian nation prevented them from achieving their objective.” The United States did invade Afghanistan but not for their oil sources but to find and bring Osama Bin Laden to justice for his involvement of the 9/11 attacks. (us-planned-911-attacks-to-invade-me, 2013). Retrieved from http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2013/01/19/284446/us-planned-911-attacks-to-invade-me/. The attacks of 9/11 not only changed the lives of Americans but it also changed the lives of Arabs living in America. Many have been singled out just for being Arab, being called names to even being attacked just for walking down the street. Many Arab Americans suffered from anxiety and depression as a result. A study was done to see how much Arab Americans suffered from anxiety and depression compared to other ethnic groups. According to the study Arab Americans demonstrated significantly higher levels of anxiety and depression compared to normative samples. The study showed that Arab......

911 Attacks

... The attacks resulted in the deaths of 2,996 people, including the 19 hijackers and 2,977 victims. The victims included 246 on the four planes (from which there were no survivors), 2,606 in New York City in the towers and on the ground, and 125 at the Pentagon. Nearly all of the victims were civilians; 55 military personnel were among those killed at the Pentagon. More than 90% of the workers and visitors who died in the towers had been at or above the points of impact. In the North Tower 1,355 people at or above the point of impact were trapped and died of smoke inhalation, fell or jumped from the tower to escape the smoke and flames, or were killed in the building's eventual collapse. The destruction of all three staircases in the tower when Flight 11 hit made it impossible for anyone above the impact zone to escape. One hundred-seven people below the point of impact died as well. In the South Tower, one stairwell (A), was left intact after Flight 175 hit, allowing 14 people located on the floors of impact (including one man who saw the plane coming at him) and four more from the floors above to escape. 911 operators who received calls from individuals inside the tower were not well informed of the situation as it rapidly unfolded and as a result, told callers not to descend the tower on their own. 630 people died in that tower, fewer than half the number killed in the North Tower. Casualties in the South Tower were significantly reduced by some occupants deciding to......

College Conspiracy Documentary Report

... going to the college. However, it is actually a college bubble that is made by the United State government. In result, the bubble makes the tuition way higher than most people can afford. When the students are not able to pay the loan, because it cost so much money to support their tuition, the bad debt make every holders of U.S. dollars lose their money.

Moreover, there is few student who go to college to study how to grow or manufacture, which will make the product of United State increase skyrocket and lose its manufacture bases. In result, it will destroy the role of world’s reserve currency to U.S. dollar. * Commentary In the documentary College Conspiracy, it talked about the reality of the United States’ education business which provides nothing useful to learn but just a degree that is worthless.

Cancer Conspiracy

...Charmaine Threat GS1140 10/11/2014 To understand the cancer conspiracy one most first understand cancer and what causes it and the business be hide it. Cancer is a group of diseases characterized by the uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells. If the spread is not controlled, it can result in death. . Cancer is caused by both external factors (tobacco, infectious organisms, chemicals, and radiation) and internal factors (inherited mutations, hormones, immune conditions, and mutations that occur from metabolism). What is important to understand is with the great balancing act that our body performs, because of our poor life styles, we wind up gradually storing large growing amount of waste products (acidic properties or toxins) throughout our body, slowly causing acidification and problems. Another important thing to understand is that acid coagulates blood, thus causing poor blood circulation around the places where acids are accumulated. This in turn causes the conditions of extra cellular fluids, especially the blood, becomes acidic, our physical condition will first manifest tiredness, proneness to catching colds, etc. When these fluids become more acidic, our condition then manifests pains and suffering such as headaches, chest pains, stomach aches, etc. The organs to act sluggish and we start to see the symptomatic signs of aging and disease.

Jfk Conspiracy Theory

...President Kennedy disregarded the many death threats towards him, as he pursued his purpose to go to Dallas, Texas for he wanted to be reelected. The president’s short thrip to Dallas sadly resulted in his early death. Uncertain of the reasons behind the assassination and the person who assassinated the president, people started coming up with different conclusion about the event. This resulted in the creation of many conspiracy theories regarding the death of president JFK. The conspiracy theory regarding president JFK’s assassination is widely believed due to the propagation by mass media. Conspiracy theories have been propagated all around the world through the use of many different means. Nowadays, people spread large amounts of information, facts and rumors using social media.

Explain what really happened during the election. The Gore v. Bush election in 2000 hinged on the state of Florida, the election was covered in lead by Fox News, ABC, CBS, NBC and CNN all followed Fox’s lead in the announcement of President. The call was made by John Ellis, a freelance political advisor contracted by Fox News to head their election night “decision desk.” Ellis is also first cousin to George W. Bush and Florida governor. By calling the election for his first cousin, Ellis’ involvement was scrutinized for being instrumental in turning Bush’s loss in the popular vote. Furthermore, the Florida election was held under the supervision of Florida Secretary of state, Katherine Harris, a co-chair of the Bush campaign. This and Ellis’ position at Fox presented an interesting campaign issue: fraud. Ellis announced Bush as the winner of Florida; however, the margin of victory triggered a mandatory recount, the litigation ultimately reached the United States Supreme Court. The Courts decision ended the recounts. On the day of the joint session both the house of representatives and the senate was to certify the election results, Al Gore in his dual role as Vice President and President of the Senate presided over the event that would officially anointed George W.

Kurt Cobain Conspiracy Theories

... related to the one and only, Courtney Love as the murderer. One month before the tragic event, Cobain was rushed to a hospital in Rome after overdosing on pills – apparently this was not an attempt at suicide, but merely a mistake on Cobain’s half. At first, Love referred to the overdose as an accident, but after Cobain’s collapse, she interchanged her story to the media by claiming the Rome incident was certainly a suicide pursuit. Also, a week before Cobain checked into rehab, he purchased a shotgun with Carlson since he did not feel safe inside his Seattle mansion. If Love thought Cobain was suicidal in any way, why did she not mention anything to Carlson before he helped pick out the gun that ended Cobain’s life? Not only was Cobain in the midst of divorcing Love, but he had also planned to remove her from his will – of course, Love would not approve. Ponder upon this, Love would receive an abundance of fame and wealth from a suicide, not a divorce: she would inherit and manage all of Nirvana’s revenue, record sales would heavily increase because of the sudden death (which means more income), and the publicity would benefit Love to launch her own musical career. It was not long until numerous conspiracy theories began to circle around about Cobain’s departure. There have been various books, articles, and even films published containing personal opinions and insight on the conspiracies. One piece of information, however, has caused a great deal of controversy amongst...

September 11th Conspiracy Theories

...SEPTEMBER 11TH CONSPIRACY THEORIES On September 11th, 2001, four American Airlines flights were hijacked. All of the planes were full of passengers. One aircraft crashed in a field in Pennsylvania, one hit the Pentagon, and the other two hit the World Trade Center in New York City. Most Americans remember where they were when they this malicious series of events happened, and the shocking feeling they had when they heard the news. When this first happened most people were scared for their lives and the lives of their loved ones. It was not until later that people started to ask questions about who was behind these events. Allegedly, a number of terrorists affiliated with the group Al-Qaeda were responsible. A few months after the attacks of 9/11 a group of skeptics formed something called “The 9/11 Truth Movement”. This group found a number of occurrences and facts that make some of the attacks and other happenings of 9/11, not likely, possibly set up, and in some cases nearly impossible. One of the groups most popular claims was that the World Trade Center falling was a controlled demolition. After demolition experts reviewed the videos of the World Trade Center falling, they agreed with the skeptics of the 9/11 Truth Movement. According to experts the building falls as if many small explosives were planted on all sides and it exploded in a very specific order, just like in a controlled demolition. When videos of the World Trade Center falling are compared with a...

911 Debunked

...Professor Dana English 1101 March 30, 2016 9/11 Conspiracy Debunked Most people in a disturbed and extremely instable state of mind often will want to believe things that may or may not have actually happened in real time. The year was 2009, a moment that shook Americans grounds so drastically and changed so many peoples lives was September 11, at 8:45 am in New York City. In the blink of an eye, one of Americas most loved cities was attacked and reawakened to the real world. Conspiracy theorists have tried to debunk the theories and misconceptions about the horrific morning of 9/11. Fortunately, after 7 years of analysis and research we figured out that the conspiracy is true, science has undoubtedly debunked this mystery and everything finally makes sense. On September 11, at 8:45 am on a clear Tuesday morning, an American airliner Boeing 767 loaded with 20,000 gallons of jet fuel crashed into the north tower of the World Trade Center in New York City near the 80th floor. According to the National Institute of Standards and Technology the North tower was completely obliterated by a single commercial Boeing airliner jet. While studies show that the height of the impacts on the North tower to cause it to collapse is a complete fallacy. The truth is that the top 20 floors could not have possibly disemboweled the remaining sturdy 90 floors. Even though the Boeing was transporting 20,000 gallons of fuel, which certainly caused plenty of damage and fire to the initial...

Conspiracy Theory

...Conspiracy theory Protective sense of human-beings naturally help observe others’ action whether it is hostile or not. A person, who is suspicious of persecutory actions from others around him for some or no reason due to excessive protective sense, is said to be jealous. When this sense goes even further, it becomes a disease. In medicine, it’s called paranoia. This is one type of schizophrenia. Paranoia leads one to reach quick conclusion about why a bad thing has happened to him, accuse the suspect easily and overlook one’s easy conclusion. This disease is common in any society. Personal analysis is much better and healthier and therefore less prone to this disease while paranoia at the level of society is more common as it is more prone. Psychologists say that this has to do with the fact that individuals are directly responsible for consequences of his action while no one is held responsible for actions of society as a whole. Society is much more susceptible to paranoia and is easy to escalate it once infected. In other words, society holds much stronger conviction in order to find the person guilty of causing bad things got them. It’s very common for social paranoia to be directed towards people with different nationality, religion and beliefs, and different social strata. Its symptoms manifest in accusation and suspicion. Victims of social paranoia tend to be accused of having supernatural power and association with witches, and of plotting evil conspiracy. This...
