Lets say there was concrete proof exposed that this was an inside job. Would you look at your government the same way (unless you already hate them)? What would your reaction be?

Well, I for one would not be shocked. I can't say anything would change, but I would hope that the american public would look at our current system and change things for the better.

It's kinda like Pearl Harbor. Can't prosecute the dead.

I don't think the govt was responsible. Just a few people inside it.

Similar to the way Nixon was involved in the Watergate break in or Clinton had the Lewinsky affair.

The value of the individuals involved would be diminished in my eyes but America would still be number one.

You conspiracy theorists give the government WAY too much credit.

If im not mistaken, the owner of the twin building went over and up-ed his insurance for the towers a week before the incident.

You tell me?

The "government" couldn't cover up a bj. What makes you think they could cover this up?

I would like to be more involved in this but the chemtrails over my house are making me forget where I am and what I am doing.

It generally takes 30 days for any changes in insurance coverage to take effect.

You mean Sal, from the Port Authority of NY & NJ (port authority owned the buildings and still owns the site, not just "some guy") went over to his State Farm agency's office and asked to bump up the terrorist protection on his skyscrapers?

hmmm...not that i'm familiar with, and that's my field of business. laws do differ from state to state tho. even so, it could have been done 30 days out. coverage was raised on the towers before they fell tho, that part is fact.

actually, thats not correct. the towers were privately held at the time of the attacks. Held privately for the first time ever in May of 2001. Also keep in mind that pre-9/11 terrorism coverage was VERY rare for ANYONE to take or even offer. But, when the private firm that held the towers bought the building, they took out a handsome amt in terrorism coverage.

i'm not trying to convince anyone of a conspiracy either, just offering some facts.
