On September 11, 2001 the world was awoken to the horrifying sound of the collapse of our World Trade Center. Mainstream media stated that this attack was indeed a terrorist attack. The collapse of the World Trade Buildings and the attack on the Pentagon created an everlasting fear of terrorist attacks worldwide. While terrorist attacks do occur everywhere, people believe there could be alternative forces behind the collapse of the World Trade Centers and the destruction of the Pentagon. Although unsupported by mainstream media, there is evidence supporting the conspiracy that 9/11 was an inside job done by the United States government. The 9/11 attacks were executed by the United States government as an excuse to invade Afghanistan and Iraq. As the fear and terror remain in people sixteen years following the attacks, people begin to connect the dots to what really happened on September 11, 2001. People were in shock throughout the event, but that shock wore off once they figured out what could be a motive for the attack. Shortly after the attack on the World Trade Center the United States began to invade and bomb Afghanistan. The government argues that because nineteen men hijacked airplanes striking at our military and economic nerve centers, we had to react. They assume these men belong to an Al Qaeda a group. According to the government the Taliban “refused” to turn over Osama Bin Laden so they sent our troops into Afghanistan. While some people may think the Taliban truly refused to turn over Osama Bin Laden, there is proof proving those weren’t their exact words. The Taliban never refused to turn over Osama Bin Laden, they only asked for evidence proving he was responsible for the attack on the World Trade Center. The United States government was asked to provide the Taliban with evidence proving his responsibility in the attacks but they failed to provide any (“9/11 conspiracy theories.”). After the Taliban’s requirements were not met due to the fact that the government had no actual evidence proving his responsibility, the government decided to invade and bomb Afghanistan in an attempt to “protect” America. While this may seem like a good way to protect America from terrorist it’s also suspicious that the attack on the World Trade Center enabled to government to pass the Patriot Act. The Patriot Act allows the government to abuse the surveillance powers authorized in ways that attack constitutional rights of Americans with judicial oversight. It enables the government to spy on millions of Americans across the country without needing a warrant or permission from a judge. Americans fear this act is eventually going to lead to political oppression. Political oppression means the government is continuing to abuse citizens and will continue to spy on them ( Russell). If people continue to believe that the attack on 9/11 was strictly a terrorist attack made by the nineteen men accused, then we will continue to live in a world of lies and everybody will continue to be oblivious to reality. The reality of it all is that the United States government attacked the World Trade Center using it as an excuse to start a war with Afghanistan in order to gain complete control over american citizens. The attacks executed by the United States government resulting in the collapse of the World Trade Center had a clear motive and plenty of evidence illustrating their involvement with the attacks. Their motive, to use the attacks as an excuse to invade Afghanistan, was followed by the discovery of evidence. Seven hours after the collapse of the Twin Towers, World Trade Center 7 fell rapidly. The building was not struck by a plane, but it collapsed due to interior fires and explosives. Unsupported by mainstream media, the idea that there were explosives inside of WTC 7 causing the collapse still remains. It is believed that the building included Secret Service and CIA offices which leads to the motive of destroying WTC 7. Following the collapse of the Twin Towers, news reports were made on the event that took place informing citizens of what had occurred. A news report included the information that the WTC 7 building had also collapsed. The reporters made the announcement that the WTC 7 building had collapsed twenty minutes prior to when it had actually collapsed (Cohen). With the information that the building held Secret Service and CIA offices and that a news reporter made the report of the buildings collapse twenty minutes prior to the actual collapse, it is obvious that the United States government destroyed WTC 7 from the inside in hopes to destroy any evidence proving their involvement in the attacks. Along with collapse of WTC 7, the twin towers had inside explosives only known to those who were inside the buildings at the time of the attacks. The collapse of the twin towers raised many questions across America. The controversy that the jet fuels could not have melted the whole steel structure of the twin towers has existed since the collapse of the towers. While building a tower, precautions including an accidental crash of an airplane into a building are taken into consideration. It is not possible that one airplane brought each tower down. People who oppose this conspiracy say the heat of the jet fuel, not the impact of the planes, caused the twin towers to collapse. When an airplane crashes jet fuel is released from the plane and catches fire. Burning jet fuel could not be enough to have melted the structure of the twin towers causing it to collapse (Jones). Explosions going around the building causing four horizontal ejections from the building were caught on video before the collapse of the twin towers. Materials shot out horizontally from four sides of the building followed by a delay before anybody could see the collapse of the towers. Firefighters stated that everything was being blown out of the floor before any part of the building collapsed. Multiple firemen stated that they knew there were bombs inside of the building but it’s suggested that they haven’t spoke up due to the fear of losing their jobs (“MUST SEE | TOP 10 REASONS 9/11 WAS AN INSIDE JOB.”). The truth about what truly happened on September 11, 2001 lies inside the walls of the building. Only the people who were inside of the Twin Towers truly understand what had occurred on the day of these attacks. Knowing the information firemen have confronted about explosives going off inside of the building prior to the collapse of it, it is able to be understood that these bombs were for a fact planted inside of the twin towers months ago by the United States government. Along with the attacks on the World Trade Center came the attack on the Pentagon. The Pentagon was said to be hit by a Boeing 757 51 minutes following the attack on the World Trade Center. Conspiracies have been created stating that either a missile or nothing actually crashed into the Pentagon. The Boeing 757 obtained a wingspan of 125 feet while the hole in the Pentagon it was said to have made was approximately 75 feet wide (“Debunking the 9/11 Myths: Special Report – The Pentagon.”). A plane with a wingspan of 125 feet couldn’t have possibly made a hole 75 feet wide in a building. No images that were released to the public show any signs of Boeing 757 crashing into the Pentagon. A news report made in Arlington, Virginia airs a video filmed from a hotel of the explosion following the crash into the Pentagon but no plane was present. The video was disclosed in 2002 when the FBI confiscated it, but a lawsuit resulted in the video being publicly released (“MUST SEE | TOP 10 REASONS 9/11 WAS AN INSIDE JOB.”). The attack on the Pentagon illustrates that there was either an explosive set off in the building or a missile fired into the building due to the fact that a 125 feet wide plane could not only make a 75 feet wide hole in a building. The amount of secrecy about this attack by the government shown through the lack of images being released of the attack and the inaccurate match between the plane’s width and the width of the hole made in the building illustrate an attack in which our government had executed. As more information regarding the suggestion that the attacks that occurred on 9/11 were executed by the United States government was released, people began to come out and voice what they knew about the event. Aaron Russo was a man who was running for governor of the state of Nevada as a Republican in 1998. He came out and exposed David Rockefeller. Aaron Russo got informed that Rockefeller wanted to meet him after viewing his video, Mad As Hell. After becoming friends and constantly sharing thoughts, Rockefeller informed Russo eleven months prior to the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, that an event was going to take place. He stated that this event would lead to the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq. Rockefeller stated that this would lead to a war of terror and that the entire event would be a hoax as a way for the government to take over the American people. Following the attacks, we did invade both Afghanistan and Iraq (“MUST SEE | TOP 10 REASONS 9/11 WAS AN INSIDE JOB.”). We invaded Afghanistan as an excuse to protect America due to the Taliban’s “refusing” to turn over Osama Bin Laden. After hearing information presented by Aaron Russo on what Rockefeller continued to tell him proves that this event was planned and executed by the United States government months before the event actually took place. The shocking attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon resulted in the majority of people concluding it to be a terrorist attack. As the reality of it all began to hit people, their suspicions grew. Conspiracies of this attack were soon made leading to the creation of the conspiracy that 9/11 was an inside job done by the United States government. Due to the fact that trusting the government is important, many people deny the possibility that the attacks on 9/11 were executed by the government. Some people may not believe that the events that occurred on 9/11 were done by the government in hopes to start a never-ending war in Afghanistan and Iraq by knocking down the World Trade Center and destroying the Pentagon. Not everybody believes this conspiracy is what truly happened, but what many people do know is that the government keeps secrets from the citizens of America. The truth is that the government will continue to hide information from people including information on what truly happened on September 11, 2001.
