Who Is Telling the Truth Or Deceptions About 9/11?

[See which group is most likely to believe 9/11 theories]

The Skeptic Wiki no longer exists, but they had a pretty interesting list of 911 theorists and their backgrounds and motives.

Also see Robert F Kennedy and JFK conspiracy theories: which are being promoted by pretty much the same bunch of people with similar motives.

9/11 Conspiracy Theorists

This article provides a list of the more prominent 9/11 conspiracy theorists, or members of the "9/11 Truth Movement" as they like to call themselves. One common position is that 9/11 was a "false flag" attack to create an excuse to wage a war on Islamic nations. Most reject the notion that 19 "alleged" Muslim terrorists with box cutters managed to defeat the worlds most sophisticated security and air defence system under the "alleged" mastermind Osama bin Laden who operated from a cave in Afghanistan.

 Many dispute alleged "facts" that an airliner crashed into a field in Pennsyvania or in to the Pentagon, or that buildings collapsed due to fire, or that "alleged" phone calls by Betty Ong and others were scientifically impossible and therefore, faked by technology such as voice synthesis and remote control. Most of the "facts" established by government and airline sources and families of the victims are disputed by conjecture, (sometimes using very sophisticated science-based explanations) as unlikely, implausible, and therefore impossible. Such arguments can also be used to "prove" that it is impossible for a bumblebee to fly, even though they do fly despite such arguments, no matter how well formed such arguments can be made.

Many accept bin Laden's statement that he had nothing to do with 9/11, instead saying that bin Laden is only an innocent scapegoat at best or at worst a creation of American intelligence used to justify unjust wars and genocide against Muslim nations such as Iraq, Afghanistan and more recently, Iran. The real threat to America lies not on Muslim extremism but on elements of a United States government strongly influence by a pro-Israel lobby. More extremist theorists such as Hufschmid and Pastore openly place the blame on Israel, zionists and the Mossad and fault more mainstream theorists such as AlexJones who have appeared on mainstream outlets such as BBC for failing to point out the "links between 9/11 and Israel".

Many appear to be participants in a common network of conspiracy media sources such as infowars, rense, and thetruthseeker and quoted in muslim media such as Tehran Times. Many have also appeared on Iranian PressTV and Russian "Russia Today" which are governments that tolerate or promote such theories. Many such as Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed are sympathetic to Muslim causes and come from a background of blaming or opposing Israel and zionists for world problems, and standing up for rights of Muslim nations and Palestineans, or hosting / citing / promoted by theorists and media with such political views.

911 Truth

911 Truth is a New York City-based conspiracy group. It claims the Bush administration staged the September 11 terror attacks. Though the group does not seem to have many members, but unaffiliated protesters often uncritically accept the group’s professionally made posters and signature “deception dollars”—fake bills covered in conspiratorial images and web sites. Its influence was most clearly seen at the March 2004 antiwar demonstrations in New York, where numerous “Stop the 9-11 Cover-Up” signs were displayed. The group has been identified by the ADLas an anti-Israel protest gorup.

Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed

Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed is Executive Director of the Institute for Policy Research & Development (IPRD). The Briton is the author of The War on Freedom: How & Why America was Attacked, September 11, 2001[1], an early "inside job" book that would greatly influence others including David Ray Griffin. Expanded his material with The War on Truth: 9/11, Disinformation and the Anatomy of Terrorism[2]and added a British dimension with The London Bombings: An Independent Inquiry[3]. Writes on a blog called The Cutting Edge[4]. A vocal critic of Israel and zionism, he also wrote "The Origins of the Israel-Palestine Conflict: Settler-Colonialism, Apartheid and Political Zionism". He also author of "Apartheid in the Holy Land: Racism in the Zionist State of Israel" for the Islamic Human Rights Commission in August 2001, which was presented at the NGO Forum of the United Nations World Conference Against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance in September of 2001. In 2002, he wrote how the War on Terror was really a War on Islam in "Why the Media Lie, Part II: America in Terror and the War on Islam" His doctoral thesis was "The Violence of Empire: The Logic and Dynamic of Strategies of Violence and Genocide in Historical and Contemporary Imperial Systems"

Dylan Avery

Dylan Avery, director of the Loose Change video[5], which questions the different reports made about the 9/11 attacks. The project apparently started out as a work of fiction, but later Avery started describing it as a documentary. He is currently finishing the third version, called Loose Change Final Cut. Has his own forum[6]. Loose Change takes the unusual position (but common among anti-Zionist truthers and Islamists) that Osama bin Laden's statement that he was not responsible for the 9/11 attacks should be trusted, while videos showing bin Laden taking credit for the attacks were faked. The film also accepts at face value that Atta was still alive because Atta's father said so, though he later he stated his son was killed or kidnapped by the Mossad. In 2005, El-Amirpraised the London bombings and 9/11 attacks, and predicted that "there would be many more fighters like his son". On a debate with Popular Mechanics hosted by the progessive DemocracyNow, Avery insisted that witnesses who saw bodies and airplanes were lying and there was never any evidence of a plane crash in Pennsylvania. There were no airplanes parts and no bodies, and he would like to know what really happened to the missing passengers since they could not have died in a crash that did not happen.

Loose Change is refuted here[7].

Robert Balsamo

Robert Balsamo, AKA JDX – Pilots for 9/11 truth[8]. Apparently a pilot whose online activity is centered around the analysis of the FDR, or "black box", of flight AA77 found at the Pentagon, where he claims its data disputes the official path. Director of the video Pandoras Black Box. Has his own forum[9].

The evidence from the FDR is discussed here[10].

In an article by James Fetzer for by Scholars for 9/11 Truthon globalresearch.ca, he says that NTSB data obtained by Balsamo's group clearly shows that a large aircraft "swerved off and flew above the Pentagon.” He said that "debris begins to show up on the completely clean lawn in short order, which might have been dropped from a C-130 that was circling above the Pentagon or placed there by men in suits who were photographed carrying debris with them” including the commercial airliner part which is improperly adduced as evidence. Fetzer also endorses the Pastore book which blames Zionists rather than "Islamic fundamentalists ... under the control of a man in a cave in Afghanistan" for the 9/11 attacks.

Kevin Barrett

Kevin Barrett[11]: University lecturer and a member of Scholars for 9/11 Truth. Islam convert who lectures about Islam. Dr. Kevin Barrett appeared in London July 2010 with Kenneth O'Keefe, Gilad Atzmon and James Fetzer as "four of the most outspoken and eloquent challengers to the Zio-American imperial order that has emerged post-September 11th." on an article posted by Salem-News.com.

Kevin Barrett is assistant imam at the Madison Muslim Dawa Circle mosque in Madison, which presumably does not promote radical beliefs or blame Zionists for 9/11 if Barrett's leadership is any indication. He was as president of Khidria, a nonprofit corporation dedicated to Islamic socio-environmental awareness. He writes for the Muslim magazine al-Jumuah, and was a cofounder of MUJCA-NET, the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth.

Jason Bermas

Jason Bermas, researcher for the Loose Change video – see Dylan Avery.

Christopher Bollyn

Christopher Bollyn is author of the book "AMERICA THE TARGET: 9-11 and Israel's Use of Terrorism to Coerce the West" which examines some of the largest Israeli terror attacks against the United States before 9-11. Shimon Peres, president of Israel is named as one of the Israeli terroristsHe asks 1. Has the Israeli military conducted false-flag terror attacks against the United States in the past?" 2. If so, are there links between the people or agencies involved in the previous terror attacks and 9-11? 3. Is there a strategic goal for which Zionist planners would conduct such an extremely dangerous and sophisticated terrorist operation? 4. If so, has that strategic goal been realized as a result of 9-11? He concludes the answer to all four questions is yes. He also supported BYU professor Steven Jones after he was unfairly forced to retire as a result of organized pressure from the Jewish community. On his website, the article "Double Vendetta - The Insanity of the Iran Confrontation" opposes confrontation with Iran, arguing that "at the behest of his Zionist masters and based on a new pack of lies, Obama is beating the Zionist drums for war against Iran"

Andreas von Bülow

Andreas von Bülow [13], German lawyer, writer and former SPD politician. Wrote The CIA and September 11[14], in which he claims 9/11 was an inside job. Member of Scholars for 911 truth[15]. He claims[16]that WTC7 was the staging post for the entire attack and his theory is that the planes were remote controlled to fly into the Twin Towers, after which WTC7 was imploded to cover up the evidence. He is also the author of another book, In the Name of the State, in which he claims that the CIA is the driving force behind most, or perhaps all, terrorist organizations in the world, among other criminal activities. In 2002, Andreas Von Bülow was interviewed by AlexJones where he said that the US government carried out the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Lauro Chavez

Lauro Chavez - Alleged whistleblower. Claimed to have served in CENTCOM, where he was one of many in the organization who quickly realized that 9/11 could not have been perpetrated by hijacked planes. Was declared a fraud when his DD-214 form, posted to the Internet by Alex Jones as proof of Chavez's validity, contained several obvious instances of tampering.

Lauro Chavez is discussed here[17].

Gordon Duff

Gordon Duff is US Marine Vietnam veteran who is editor of the website Veterans Today. He suggests that generals are revolting because of the rapidly spreading knowledge 9/11 was a Zionist false-flag operation. Gordon Duff appeared with unofficial Hezbollah spokesman Franklin Lamb on Kevin Barett’s Truth Jihad Radio [18]on a website hosted by intifada-palestine.com.

James Fetzer

James "Jim" Fetzer[19], a Ph.D in philosophy, heads the Scholars For 9/11 Truth[20]. Has had a recent breakup with Steven Jones, who left and formed his own site. The breakup[21]centered around Fetzer and Jones' different opinions regarding certain 9/11 theories, e.g. the "Starwars" theory of Judy Wood, the "no planes" theory and the alleged use of small thermonuclear devices at the Twin Towers. He also has his own personal website[22]. Fetzer endorsed the book "Stranger Than Fiction"which blames 9/11 on Zionists. Fetzer says that he had no clear concept of Zionism until relatively recently. Invited guests on his radio program, "The Real Deal" including Stephen Lendman, and the author, Albert Pastore, Ph.D. (which is a pseudonym) on 28 May 2010.

Richard Gage

Richard Gage  is a San Francisco Bay area based architect, founded Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth in 2006. Gage, who is a member of the American Institute of Architects,has worked as an architect for twenty years and was involved in the construction of numerous fireproof steel-frame buildings. He became convinced of the need to create an organization that brings together architects and engineers when he listened to an independent radio station interview with theologian David Ray Griffin. According to Richard Gage, 7 World Trade Center (7 WTC), a 47-story high-rise building that was part of the World Trade Center complex and collapsed in the afternoon on September 11, 2001, is the "smoking gun" of September 11,[42][52] providing the most compelling evidence that something was suspect about the building's collapse that had not been told to the public.[53][54] Gage also described 7 WTC as "the most obvious example of controlled demolition."[55]  

When asked by Iran's PressTV ""How those building fell, why does it make a difference?", he answered : Because we went to war based on the events of 9/11. A million people have been killed in the Middle East; 5,000 US soldiers have been killed; we’ve lost our civil liberties through legislation. If 9/11 was something different than what we were sold – and I assure you that it is; the forensic evidence is overwhelming for the explosive demolition of these buildings – then the roots of these wars are in deep question. And a new investigation that lets the chips fall where they may; that pursues the truth wherever it leads will unravel the reasons we are at war in Afghanistan and Iraq. That’s not our agenda at Architects and Engineers for 9/11 truth, we don’t have conspiracy theories – We’re calling for a new investigation based on this forensic evidence."

He has appeared on a variety of outlets known for their reliability and freedom from political biases:


How one man gave up everything—his family, his friends, his job—to spread the Truth about 9/11

David Ray Griffin

David Ray Griffin[23], a retired professor of theology and philosophy, author of The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration and 9/11[24]and The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions. Has his own non-9/11 related homepage[25]. Daniel Hopsicker recalls being inundated with e-mails urging him to buy Griffin's book which he believed was probably an organized disinformation campaign to deflect blame away from Al Queda, possibly related to funding of disinformation by the Saudi-funded Genesis family of businesses.

On globalresearchand 911Truth.org, Griffin writes that 9/11 was a "false flag" operation which made it appear to be the work of victimized Arab Muslims to marshal support for a "so-called war on terror" against innocent Muslim and Arab states. He asks Christians to realize "we are living in an empire similar to the Roman empire at the time of Jesus, which put him to death for resistance against it."

Nico Haupt

Nico Haupt' focuses mainly on Flight 93/Shanksville, taking the stance that no plane actually crashed there. His autobiography can be found here[26]and his weblog here[27]. His timelinepurports to show that one or more of the WTC airliner strikes was done as a CGI effect. He supports "the evidence on "controlled demolition" of WTC 1,2,7 and that 14-16 U.S. military helicopters had been involved in the orchestrated, controlled demolition of the Twin Towers, and that no commercial aircraft crashed into the Pentagon or in Shanksville

Screw loose changenoted that Nico Haupt on his "9-11 Stalker TV" went "beyond the pale" for making homophobic cracks about "Josephus" Cressy and Richard "Gay-ge" as "perverts" in the truth movement. His 911tvfakery.blogspot.com has been removed.

Gerard Holmgren

Gerard Holmgren[28], an Australian 9/11 researcher who had a significant influence on early "inside job" thinking. His support for more extreme views[29](the Naudet video was staged, the South tower impact videos are faked) have lead to Holmgren being eclipsed by others in recent years, though, and now he's best known for attacking other 9/11conspiracy theorists[30]such as Steven Jones, Alex Jones and Jim Hoffman.

Eric Hufschmid

Eric Hufschmid[31], director of the Painful Deceptions[32]video. Also active inHolocaust revisionism and the Moon Hoax at [33]. The motto on his website is "Avoiding Zionist traps since 2002"

There is a brief discussion about the links between Holocaust denial and 911-truthers here[34], and here[35].

Jim Hoffman

Jim Hoffman[36], a software engineer, director of WTC 9/11 Demolition Analysis'[37]. Homepages include 9/11 Review, 9/11 Researchand WTC7.net. Unlike many other theorists, Hoffman has been careful to not directly attack or blame Zionists or Israel, which has led to internet posts accusing him of being a "zionist agent or shill"who refuses to examine Israel's role as a key conspirator in 9-11]. It is unclear whether Hoffman even believes that hijackers or Osama bin Laden are even guilty of crimes as he uses the terms "alleged perpetrators" and the "alleged hijackers". It appears less important exactly what parts of the official story should be questioned than to establish that "Osama bin Laden" cannot be "presented as the prime suspect". Hoffman disagrees that "Within three days the FBI published the identities of all the alleged hijackers" shows that it is an "open-and-shut case." Like most conspiracy theorists, Hoffman appears to be shifting blame from radical Islam, Al Queda, the hijackers and Bin Laden to the "real terrorists".

Daniel Hopsicker

Daniel Hopsicker, a journalist who suggests the Florida-based pilots were involved in drug-smuggling operations and that there was high-level Government knowledge. Also notable for claiming that Mohamed Atta used cocaine, drank, partied with strippers and more. Hopsicker supports this with interviews from Amanda Keller, someone he says was Atta's Florida girlfriend (although this claim has been questioned[38], or even ridiculed[39], and Amanda Keller now denies it[40]). Hopsicker gave his account in the book Welcome to Terrorland[41], and publishes more stories on his own site, The Mad Cow Morning News[42]. He has been criticized by some conspiracy theorists[43]for avoiding theories like controlled demolition.

Books such as "Stranger than Fiction" footnote Hopsicker's accounts of Atta's alleged drinking and womanizing, but mostly to prove that No True Atta would have ever behaved in such a manner. Hopsicker reports being inundated with e-mail urging him to look at Griffin's book, but he severely doubts such a ex-minister could be a credible researcher. He believes this book campaign was part of an organized campaign of disinformation, possibly related to various Genesis-named businesses funded from Saudi Arabia. Accounts differ on whether GCN which promotes Alex Jones, Rense, and many of the othertheorists who place the blame away from the hijackers and Al Queda is the same Genesis organization.

Hopsicker casts many individual europeans, Muslims, Arabs and Iranians in a negative light. However, unlike most of the truth movement, he does not speak ill of Isreal, the Mossad, zionists, or advocate for the rights of Palestine. He does not doubt the guilt of terrorists or Osama bin Laden by speaking of "alleged hijackers" or the "alleged masterminds". He essentially believes that the US government participated in covert operations involving illegal drugs and arms using persons from Europe and the middle east as operatives, but that they took advantage of their covert operations to engage in an operation against the US relatively free from interference by the FBI or intelligence agencies that should have been tracking them.

Phil Jayhan

Phil Jayhan[44], suggested along with Deborah Simon that photos of the plane that hit the South Tower showed it had a "pod" on the underside, that may have fired a missile at the tower immediately before impact. Also gave Dylan Avery some money in April 2005 to help with pressing DVDs of the first edition of Loose Change, although the two have since fallen out and are now feuding.

It Wasn't Muslims

It Wasn't Muslims is a widely referenced web essay which establishes in a wildly anti-semitic fashion that Muslims were not responsible for 9/11 or terrorism, but rather establishes the US government and "international Jewry" as guilty of massive crimes against Muslims and humanity in general. It shows a much more radical face than the 9/11 truth movement which is shown by mainstream media. It was allegedly based on the November 2003 essay "It Wasn't Arabs" by an Edgar J. Steele who evidently takes a pro-Muslim position despite his quite Anglo-sounding name.

Alex Jones

Alex Jones[45], talkshow host and head of Prisonplanet[46]and Infowars.com[47]and Infowars.net[48]. Has his own Myspace area[49]. He is a "patriot" who has been a featured on interviews on both Russian state "Russia Today" (who also interviewed New York-based Revolution Islam which supports Al Queda and the Fort Hood Massacre) and Iran "PressTV" television. He opposes US and Israel military actions against Islamic, Iran and Arab states, while advocating for Palestinean rights, and comparing US troops on a Wikileak video a worse than Nazis. From 911guide:Radio host, fired from KJFK-FM in 1999 because of his views. A former Republican turned "libertarian and independent". According to Radar Magazine also a former bodybuilder. The father figure to some of the younger generation of truthers. Says Waco is what really woke him up. After an unfulfilling stint at Austin Community College, he decided what he really wanted to do was talk about his new concerns, and signed up for a cable access show (see full article here).

Featured on BBC, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today , The Dallas Morning News, The Los Angeles Times, The Austin-American Statesman, and The Austin Chronicle, 911truth.org credits Jones with predicting the 9/11 attack in a July 2001 television taping when he warned that the Globalists were going to attack New York and blame it on their asset Osama bin Laden.

Source to numerous conspiracy claims. Has implied the FDNY were complicit of murder on 9/11. Says the 7/7/05 London bombings were orchestrated by British intelligence. Says global warming is a hoax. Says AIDS was orchestrated by the high powers of the world. Says the Oklahoma bombing was orchestrated by the FBI. Says the 1993 WTC bombing was orchestrated by the FBI. Says there is a New World Order, an Illuminati, an evil entity of powerful people that control and dominate the entire world. Says the NWO/Illuminati leave signs and give clues of their work, but are so arrogant they just don't care if someone (Alex Jones) notices.

Says there is a plan to get rid of most (80%) of the population of the world. Claims all the terrorists are patsies. Has speculated the Virginia Tech shootings being a government black-op, Hurricane Katrina being weather manipulation and the 2004 Tsunami possibly caused by a deliberate under sea detonation. Believes in Chemtrails, JFK assassination being a government operation and US Government foreknowledge and allowance of Pearl Harbor. Says "they use cancer research to develop new cancers". Claims the Cold War, Russian Revolution and The Great Depression are all staged. Claims that Communism was a plot by international banks in the early 1900s to oppress the Russian serfs. Producer of Loose Change Final Cut

Steven Jones

Steven E. Jones[50], only prominent Mormon truther, early-retired Ph.D in physics who after a disputewith James Fetzer left Scholars for 911 Truth[51](which he co-founded), to form his own organization, called Scholars for 9/11 Truth and Justice[52]. Steven Jones is the author of the paper Why Indeed Did the WTC Buildings Collapse?[53], where he argues that thermite[54]was used to bring down the Twin Towers. After publishing his paper on his homepage at Brigham Young University[55], his employeer put him on paid leave to review his 9/11 work. During this period howeverJones and the University agreed on him going into early retirement. It has been said that he believes that Jesus visited America, and has written a paper about it, called "Behold My Hands: Evidence for Christ's Visit in Ancient America", but that's a standard LDS religious belief.

According to Christopher Bollynwriting in an article originally posted on Rense.com, and also byglobalresearch.caJones was invited to speak on a public radio station. Rather than blaming 19 Arab hijackers for 9/11, Jones stated he sided with Webster Tarpley's analysis that individuals linked to the "international banking cartel" were possible suspects. Afterwards, the chairman of the Jewish Community Relations Council called in, outrageously charging that Jones' was using code language to make anti-Semitic allegations. The two Jewish professors who followed Jones proceeded with a hostile discussion that the now-absent physics professor was nothing more than an anti-Semite indulging in conspiracy fantasies without even discussing the technical details of Jones' theories. Bollyn believes that BYU caved to organized Jewish pressure and put Jones on paid leave.

Henry Makow

Canadian Makow has written that the "9-11 Truth-Deniers are Criminally Responsible", giving "shelter, aid and comfort to the perps". Makow maintains that Larry Silverstein gave the order to "pull" (demolish) WTC-7 building on Sept. 11. He has also written that Zionism is A Conspiracy Against Jewsexplaining that Zionism is a "movement to deceive Jews into advancing the objectives of British imperialism" and that "both Nazism and Zionism were sponsored by the same banking cartel". That article was also posted or linked on the websites the7thfire, thetruthseeker, and the Zionism data page of Rense.com.

Aldo Marquis

Aldo Marquis AKA Merc, together with Craig Ranke ("Lyte Trip") co-founder of the "Citizen Investigation Team" and director of The Pentacon[56]- a video that claims to show that the AA77 flight flew on a different path towards the Pentagon. Uses the forum of Pilots for 911 truth.

The Pentacon is discussed here[57], and here[58]and there is a brief, but to the point, debunking here[59].

Thierry Meyssan

Thierry Meyssan[60], French author and journalist who published 9/11 The Big Lie[61].

Jeff Rense

Jeff Rense has a websiteand radio program which promotes many conspiracy theorists including Webster Tarpley. The Jewish interest group ADL considers that the Rensewebsite "Promotes Anti-Semitic Views", and that the Oregon-based Internet and satellite radio host maintains a "virulently anti-Semitic Web site" at Rense.com. In their own defence, they receive "threats or intimidation at the hands of those would impose a fascist silence over any news or editorial commentary of which they disapprove" from "Brown Shirt, book-burning freedom-hating enemies of our besieged Constitution, The Bill Of Rights and YOUR right to be informed and to entertain alternative viewpoints on ALL subjects." Rense maintains that the real issue is ZIONISM and how it has "hijacked Judaism and the nation of Israel and is using them as worldwide geopolitical tools of suppression, control, massive manipulation, spying, bribery, blackmail, influence peddling and God only knows how many other things.". While Isreal is not the only such nation it is "near the top of the list in terms of brilliance, sophistication, ruthlessness and results." Alex Jones, who is also on the Genesis Communications Networkpublically thanked "Jeff Rense for defending me in the past from attacks" and "Jeff Rense has NEVER been wrong in his assessments of suspect 'patriots' in the alternative news media." Athough Rense denies accusations that rense.com published articles by David Duke, David Duke'sofficial website has an interview with Jeff Rense "We Fight for the Right For All People to Be Free!" about the critical issues facing America.

Dr. Albert D. Pastore Phd.

Dr. Albert D. Pastore Phd. is the penname of an author of the book " Stranger than Fiction"published by Dandelion Bookson Jan 2004, and mirrored under this name and "anonymous" on numerous conspiracy oriented websites. The most popular website is on Mike Riveros's [whatreallyhappened.com]. The book was featured on James Fetzer's radio show and the author was interviewed in 2010. Copies have been mirrored across dozens if not hundreds of matches on the internet, usually on websites critical of Israel or zionism. He opposes the "bold takeover scheme of Arab Palestine", and cites "certain elements within the Israeli government, and Zionist movement in general, have a long history of attacking the USA". He believes Arabs have been unfairly framed in order to gain US support. He quotes Henry Ford and Charles Lindbergh's statements about "Jewish control" and "Their greatest danger to this country lies in the Jewish ownership and influence in our motion pictures, our press, our radio, and our government." Pastore appears to side not only with the Arabs against Israel, but also with Bin Laden's denial of any role in the attacks and his suggestion that Zionists were responsible: "I was not involved in the September 11 attacks in the United States nor did I have knowledge of the attacks. There exists a government within a government within the United States. The United States should try to trace the perpetrators of these attacks within itself; to the people who want to make the present century a century of conflict between Islam and Christianity. That secret government must be asked as to who carried out the attacks....The American system is totally in control of the Jews, whose first priority is Israel, not the United States."

Craig Ranke

Craig Ranke AKA Lyte Trip, together with Aldo Marquis ("Merc") co-founder of ”Citizen Investigation Team” and director of The Pentacon[62]- a video that claims to show that the AA77 flight flew on a different path towards the Pentagon. Uses the forum of Pilots for 9/11 Truth.

The Pentacon is discussed here[63], and here[64]and there is a brief, but to the point, debunking here[65].

Mike Ruppert

Mike Ruppert, former LAPD detective who runs the web site From the Wilderness[66], "a newsletter and website dedicated to investigating political cover-ups". His web articles and book Crossing the Rubicon[67]popularised the idea that NORAD war games were key to the 9/11 "inside job", that "fake blips" inserted onto radar screens may have confused the FAA, that Dick Cheney was in charge of NORAD on 9/11, and more. Left the US in July 2006 complaining of harrassment, but still writes online at Peak Oil Blog[68].

William Rodriguez

William Rodriguez[69], WTC janitor during the 9/11 attacks. Has made statements about explosions in the WTC basement. Filed a civil RICO lawsuitwith two other people, directed against the government claiming a conspiracy on it's part. Tours lecturing about his WTC experiences and gives public speeches contradicting the 9/11 commission's account.

Korey Rowe

Korey Rowe, producer of the Loose Change - video – see Dylan Avery

Loose Change is refuted here[70].

Kevin Ryan

Kevin R. Ryan[71], a lab director at Environmental Health Laboratories Inc. wrote an open letter[72]to NIST questioning their report. He claimed that his alleged employer Underwriter Laboratories had tested and certified the steel in the Twin Towers. The open letter which was published at Septembereleventh.org[73]led to Mr Ryan's subsequent termination at EHL. The reason given was that he had expressed his own opinions as though they were the institutional opinions of Underwriter Laboratories. Ryan is believed to be the source for the "No way WTC Steel Could Melt At 2000 F" claim that later gave way to "Only controlled demolition could account for molten steel at WTC".

Richard Siegel

Richard Siegel[74]recorded the raw footage of 9/11 Eyewitness[75]. Although this is listed as the work of Siegel, he himself claims its not[76]. Here[77]he give his own account. Apparently he has had a falling-out[78]with other parts of the conspiracy theory community and seems to consider it a fraud. He has called for other conspiracy theorists to take a lie detector test, to weed out infiltrators[79]. Has his own weblog[80]. 9-11 Eyewitness[81]has its own forums[82].

Sofia Shafquat

Sofia Shafquat[83]AKA Sofia[84], director of the 9/11 Mysteries[85]video. She created and narrated the film 9-11 Mysteries Part 1: Demolitions with Brad Waddell. The film was based on a play that she and Brad performed in Los Angeles. Brad appears briefly at the beginning of the movie and Sofia appears briefly at the end. The film is controversial because it credits Eric Hufschmid, a Holocaust Denier, as introducing "Brad" to 9/11 Denial. In addition, Rick Siegel, maker of 9-11 Eyewitness, is taking legal action against Sofia for using his footage in what he says is disinformation[86][87]. Her website is here[88]. She is also the writer of a novel called The Shadow Man[89]which has been described as "Thelma and Louise without the gunfire".

9/11 Mysteries is refuted here[90].

Webster Tarpley on Russia Today

Webster Tarpley

Webster G. Tarpley[91], author and historian. Author of 9/11: Synthetic Terror. Has a website called Tarpley.net[92]. Tarpley, like Alex Jones has appeared on Russia Today (Russian state TV)including a December 29 interview about what he called the false-flag "attempted terror" attack that occurred on Christmas Day on Delta's Northwest Airlines Flight 253 that was attributed to Al Queda by the US government. Tarpley stated "Al Qaida, of course, is functioning, as always, as the CIA Arab-Islamic legion" and ""Al Qaida in the Arab Peninsula is a creation wholly of the U.S. intelligence agencies." Some are disappointed and believe that Tarpley lied to protect Israel and the Mossad by putting the blame for the attempted bombing on the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

Paul Thompson

Paul Thompson, author and coordinator of Cooperative Research[93]and their 9/11 timeline. Lives in New Zealand[94]where he works fulltime on that site. Not an open conspiracy theorist, and a few non-conspiracy websites use his site as a source. However some argue[95]that he should be considered as such. He has stated that "to me there's no way the official story could hold true."[96]

Paul and Steve Watson

Paul Joseph Watson and Steve Watson. Paul and Steve write most of the articles at Prisonplanet and Infowars such as Obama’s First Appointment Is Son Of Zionist Terrorist. They also have their own website, theJones Report[97]and Paul has a site called Propaganda Matrix[98]. See Alex Jones. Onglobalresearch.ca, Paul wrote headlined "Times Square Bomber Linked With CIA-Controlled Terror Group", also linking an Al Queda-blamed incident to the US government.

Judy Wood

Judy D. Wood[99], a former professor of mechanical engineering. Is the main proponent of the Star Wars Directed-Energy Weapons (DEW) theory[100], which claims that secret Star Wars beam weapons took down the Twin Towers.

 Eric Larsen Ph.D. who wrote the forward of her book said in the conspiracy oriented Atlantic Free Press: "Without 9/11, there would have been no “Patriot Act,” no abuse of FISA and stripping away of privacy rights, no Military Commissions Act of 2006 with its setting aside of Habeas Corpus, no implementation of Northcom and deployment of our own military forces on domestic American soil (for use against who, you might ask?), and no trashing of Bill of Rights and Constitutional guarantees, no  there would never have been any fake and opportunistic “Global War on Terror,” would never have been Guantanamo as we know it now, never have been official programs of torture or fake demonizing of Islam in order to justify wars in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Somalia, or to justify overt plans for the murder of U.S. citizens living in places like, say, Yemen."

Dr Wood was questioned by another conspiracy theorist at the National Press club in Washington. The incident was filmed and posted here[101].

Where Did the Towers Go? Evidence of Directed Free-energy Technology on 9/11

Where Did the Towers Go? Evidence of Directed Free-energy Technology on 9/11

This book is a forensic analysis of what effectively is a crime scene. Ground Zero and the surrounding areas were photographed countless thousands of times, yet no one really assessed all of the phenomena found in these photographs. What is presented in this book is not a theory and it is not speculation. It is evidence. It is the body of empirical evidence that must be explained in order to determine what happened at Ground Zero.

Anyone declaring who did what or how they did it before they have determined what was done is merely promoting either speculation or propaganda. The popular chant, "9/11 was an inside job," is, scientifically speaking, no different from the chant that "19 bad guys with box cutters did it." Neither one is the result of a scientific investigation supported by evidence that would be admissible in court. Neither identifies what crime was committed or how it was committed.

The order of crime solving is to determine

1) WHAT happened, then

2) HOW it happened (e.g., what weapon), then

3) WHO did it. And only then can we address
4) WHY they did it (i.e. motive).

Let us remember what is required to (legally) convict someone of a crime. You cannot convict 
someone of a crime based on belief. You cannot convict someone of a crime if you don't even know what crime to charge them with. If you accuse someone of murder using a gun, you'd better be sure the body has a bullet hole in it. Yet, before noon on 9/11/01, we were told who ..
did it, how they did it, and why they did it (they hate us for our freedoms); before any investigation had been conducted to determine what had even been done.

Many people have speculated as to who committed the crimes of 9/11 and/or how they did so. But without addressing what happened, speculation of this kind is nothing more than conspiracy theory. My research is not speculation. It is a forensic investigation of what happened to the WTC complex on 9/11.

 Awesome!! What ACTUALLY Happened on 9/11! *Dr. Judy Wood* gives us a WINNER!, March 30, 2011
By J. Moore "Yogi" (San Diego, CA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Where Did the Towers Go? Evidence of Directed Free-energy Technology on 9/11 (Hardcover)
Dr. Judy Wood wins! This woman of iron-clad intellect has unraveled the mystery of the iron unraveling! Dr. Judy Wood, a most qualified guide, balances the scientific reality of 9/11 with the sensitivity of her oceanic heart. Both head and heart are wed in this work of painstaking genius. With a background in Applied Physics, Interferometry, and Materials Engineering Science, Dr. Judy Wood seems to have been born specifically for this historic World Trade Center investigation. What many of us have only guessed at--"Isn't that debris pile too small?!"--the brilliant Dr. Wood proves beyond a shadow of doubt: The Twin Towers never hit the ground! 

Here is another unlikely theory "disproving" Wood's unlikely theory: 

Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth Refute Judy Wood's Theory

May 13, 2011
Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth have published an article refuting the theory put forward by Dr. Judy Wood that a directed energy weapon (DEW) was responsible for bringing down the Twin Towers. I am familiar with this theory having written about it early on after meeting with a former East German agent who admitted to having worked for the Mossad. This theory is clearly disinformation used to divert people from understanding how a highly energetic (i.e. explosive) coating of super-thermite (a bi-layered thermitic material made using nano-technology) was used to pulverize the 220 acre-sized concrete floors of the World Trade Center.  All that remained of the Twin Towers was steel and dust, 

Dr. Judy Wood, a professor at Clemson University with degrees in civil engineering, engineering mechanics, and materials engineering science, asked after the 9/11 catastrophe: How did two of the world's tallest buildings all but disappear, and faster than traditional physics can explain?
Over a half mile of vertical building height, containing nearly 150 football fields of floor space, was reduced to a near-level field of dust and debris, where rescue workers walked horizontally or rappelled into empty caverns to look for survivors. How was this possible given the standard laws of engineering and physics?
The 9/11 Commission Report bypassed this central issue, as did the report of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Contrary to its stated objective of determining "why and how WTC 1 and WTC 2 collapsed," the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) made the stunning admission that it did not investigate how the towers fell.
Neither the standard view-that the Twin Towers collapsed from fire-nor the standard opposition view-that they were intentionally detonated by "thermite explosives"- explains the evidence, nor do they follow the laws of engineering and physics.
Dr. Wood left Clemson to research the 9/11 conundrum full time, and she has focused her research strictly on physical evidence and scientific principles. Where Did the Towers Go? provides an understandable, credible, and photo-enhanced summary of Dr. Wood's disturbing findings, which resulted in her lawsuit against the contractors of the NIST report.

In 1947 six flying saucers circled above a harbor boat in Puget Sound near Tacoma, Washington, one wobbling and spewing slag. The falling junk killed a dog and burned a boy’s arm. His father, Harold Dahl, witnessed it all and brought his partner, Fred Crisman, down the next day to see yet another UFO. The Maury Island incident became the first UFO event of the

Barrie Zwicker
Barrie Zwicker, Canadian journalist who was one of the first to raise questions about the response of Bush and NORAD on 9/11. He has produced documentaries on the topic, including The Great Deception[102]and The Great Conspiracy: The 9/11 News Special You Never Saw[103], which may have influenced UK MP Michael Meacher into speaking out about on 9/11 issues. 2006 saw the release of Zwicker's book Towers of Deception: The Media Cover-up of 9/11[104], but this was by and large a compendium of other researchers' work and added little new in itself. He wrote for the Catholic New Timesthat the assault on Iraq is about promoting pro-Israel fundamentalist Christianity, known as Christian Zionism. "Christian Zionists see occupation of the whole of Palestine by the Jewish people as fulfillment of Old Testament prophesy".
