9/11 Conspiracy Theories, Debunked

 

There are some 911 conspiracy facts that everyone should know if they’re interested in September 11th conspiracies. 9/11 conspiracy theories started as a way to make sense of something that had never happened before – the organized hijacking and crashing of four jetliners on US soil. Almost immediately, the nascent internet conspiracy movement seized on things that “didn’t make sense” and “didn’t add up.” They didn’t believe it was plausible for hijackers to take control of four planes with box cutters; in their minds, there had to be more to it than that.

Since then, September 11th conspiracy theories have revolved around two different central themes: that the government either made the attacks happen or allowed the attacks to happen. One says that the buildings were rigged with explosives and destroyed, using faked hijackings as a cover. The other says that the government didn’t actively plan the attacks, but knew they were about to happen, and let them unfold without taking action to stop them. Other elements of possible 9/11 conspiracies include a missile fired at the Pentagon, Flight 93 being shot down on purpose, wealthy individuals profiting off the attacks, and evidence of the hijackings being faked.

In the years since the attacks, no 9/11 conspiracy theory on this list has been proven. They’ve mostly been debunked with facts, and those that haven’t generally didn’t boast enough evidence to debunk in the first place. The 9/11 truth movement, which exploded during the Bush administration, has mostly faded away, with hardcore truthers moving on to other conspiracy theories, leaving only these discredited theories behind.
