What happened on 9/11?

No, not the day democracy died in Cuba, not that 9/11. September 11th 2001, the day the twin towers in New York City collapsed, apparently because two planes were crashed into them, allegedly by terrorists. The astute will have picked up the scepticism in my tone!

Having just watched Loose Change 2nd Edition (new window), I have to say I’m very sceptical. When you stop and think about it, the idea that a plane crashes into the upper floors of a building and then destroys the building 54 minutes later, in what appeared to be a perfectly controlled demolition, well it does sound a bit ridiculous doesn’t it?

The film can be downloaded for free, so go ahead, see what all the fuss is about, ask questions. It scared the hell out of me.

  1. Interestingly, i watched a dispatches documentary on this film a few days ago. It suggested that Loose Change misrepresents a lot of facts and offered a number explanations for many of the highlighted issues. While i’m not passing judgement on either side, i think that this film is only one side of the story.

  2. I think the presentation in the film is fairly biased. However, some of the fundamental facts are pretty hard to argue with. They show pictures of the Pentagon front lawn, in my opinion, there’s no way a plane hit that building. I also don’t believe that a plane collides into the upper floors of the twin towers, and after burning for an hour, the building collapses perfectly into a pile. I just don’t buy it. Do you?
