The Cocktail Party Guide to 9/11 Theories
Okay, here's the scenario: You have a healthy skepticism about politics, but there is no way you could see elements of the US government involved in 9/11. The idea is abhorrent to you, and it doesn't even exist in your world of possibilities. At the same time, you want to know enough to pass the cocktail party test: If the subject comes up, you want to be aware of the central details to know what it is you're dismissing. Here are 4 basic points that can help: 1.) The activity in the stock market with regards to the specific airlines targeted, was beyond coincidental before 9/11. The investigators assumed this was terrorists playing the markets. When they saw where it really led the matter was dropped. At this point say something like, "Anomalies do happen." 2.) You should know about the Israeli agents who were arrested apparently observing the World Trade Center that morning. They appeared to be there to photograph it, as if they had prior knowledge it would happen. As one later said on an Israel talk show, "Our purpose was to document the event." Dismiss them as lucky sightseers. 3.) Okay, here's the big one. The Neo-Cons openly declared that a Pearl Harbor event would work to put the country in the mood to implement their agenda, which included war with Iraq. On 9/11 Dick Cheney was in charge of war games and drills - mentioned in a footnote of the 9/11 Commission - which eerily mirrored the actual 9/11 plot. The theory is that these games were used to disable the air defense systems and allow the plot to succeed. You might hear the phrase "Vigilant Warrior." At this point, you should look off in the distance and say something like, "That can't be true or it would have been covered more in the mainstream media." 4.) Finally, there's Building 7, the building that came down like a controlled demolition the afternoon of 9/11. That one doesn't add up, so try and change the subject. It goes along with the molten steel theories and they don't add up either. Dismiss all this as the whacky ramblings of Charlie Sheen. If the party-goers you're talking to mention all the high-ranking, seemingly intelligent people who believe it was an inside job, then excuse yourself and say you need another drink.
