First things first, our deepest condolences go out to those who lost their family and friends in this gruesome terrorist attack. However, when something as big as the 9/11 attacks happen on the world scene, the ripples are bound to be felt for years to come. The impact of this incident has transcended politics and foreign affairs to find its way into films, art and popular culture. The documentary movie 'Fahrenheit 9/11' is one of the best films of the 9/11 conspiracy.
Many people in the world regard 9/11 as a conspiracy. The details of the conspiracy theory change according to the person telling the story. We do not know if 9/11 was actually a conspiracy but enough death and destruction has already come of it. So on the 11th anniversary of this sad event, lets finally take it on a lighter note. Here are some of the most bizarre conspiracy theories about 9/11.
Theory 1: Planes didn't make the Twin Towers collapse; it was the bombs.
And by bombs we do not mean the bombs inside the hijacked planes. Some analysts who scrutinized the video footage claimed that tiny blasts were occurring on different floors of the towers. This means that bombs had been placed throughout the building and that sped up the fall of the towers.
Verdict: Fat chance because it would take a lot of security breech to get bombs inside the Twin towers and it would take 10 truck loads of explosives to blow up the building.
Theory 2: The Jews call it a day.
According to official reports, more than 4,000 Jewish people took a day off on the day 9/11 attacks. It has been hypothesised that they knew it was coming and stayed away.
Verdict: It is nothing but the sentiments of an Anti-Semitic group who spread these rumours. Considering that 50,000 people worked in the World Trade Centre on any average weekday, 4,000 people taking a leave is just a matter of coincidence.
Theory 3: Pentagon attack is a scientific impossibility.
Many experts believe that the hole formed in the Pentagon is much smaller than the average diameter of an American Airlines plane. In fact, the angle at which the plane crashed was extremely strange and the impact was too small for such a huge commotion.
Verdict: Well, this is the most compelling among all the other conspiracy theories but there is no way to tell. I guess we will have to crash another aircraft into Pentagon to find out for sure!
Theory 4: Fake phone calls.
Many people called their family and friends from the hijacked planes. The severe formality of their tone indicates some lack of emotion. That is uncharacteristic in such an emotionally charged situation. Many people believe that these phone calls were faked.
Verdict: Either that or the real tapes of the calls were never released!
Theory 5: It was an inside job.
Many security experts and the general population are of the opinion that an attack of such magnitude must have been comprehended by the Intelligence agencies. Nobody says that the White House itself was involved in it. However, there must have been some source of help from the administration to achieve a security breach of this magnitude.
Verdict: We cannot vouch for political ambitions but it still seems improbably. Such a massive cover-up is rare even in best selling political thrillers.
These are some of the most bizarre theories to explain the conspiracy of 9/11 given by Newsone. Do you find any of them believable?
