Do you think, that 911 was a inside job?

There is a growing movement among some conspiracy theorists to believe that 911 was an "inside job."

This is possibly the most popular conspiracy theory that exists and has actually become a popular joke, especially on social media. I was astounded in reading your post that according to a recent poll, 53% of Americans believe 9/11 was an inside job! I’ve seen videos and documentaries about this conspiracy and to the average person, they seem very convincing. They appear to have a substantial amount of evidence to back up their claims and as the conspiracy increases in popularity, it gains supporters as well. It’s hard to determine who truly does believe 9/11 was an inside job because a lot of people joke about it, but nonetheless, it’s certain interesting how this theory has spread so far.

It’s interesting to consider how the joke about 9/11 being an inside job might affect how many people believe it. Even if people are sharing this conspiracy as a joke, or making memes, etc. they still might be convincing people that this actually happened, even if they themselves don’t actually believe it!

9/11 Commission Final Report. Any attempt to understand what we know about the 9/11 attacks has to begin with the report of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, better known as the 9/11 Commission. Established by Congress and President George W. Bush, it was tasked with assessing how the attacks happened and recommending steps to prevent future ones. Its final report, released in July 2004, paints an unsettling picture of how unprepared the U.S. government was for the attacks despite mounting warnings during the summer of 2001 that something was afoot. In doing so, it shows that there is little need to believe in a conspiracy. The truth is alarming enough.

The 911 commission report failed to address many key questions about the attack.

It should not lower them too far. Our report shows a determined and capable group of plotters. Yet the group was fragile, dependent on a few key personalities, and occasionally left vulnerable by the marginal, unstable people often attracted to such causes. The enemy made mistakes-like Khalid al Mihdhar's unauthorized departure from the United States that required him to enter the country again in July 2001, or the selection of Zacarias Moussaoui as a participant and Ramzi Binalshibh's transfer of money to him. The U.S. government was not able to capitalize on those mistakes in time to prevent 9/11.

Many people believe that the government staged the attack in order to gain support for war in iraq.

However that doesn't mean there's any evidence for the more outlandish online conspiracy theories about the attacks. Some claim the US government was complicit - that officials deliberately let the attacks happen or were even involved in the planning. Experts say part of the reason for the persistence of such conspiracy theories is the dissonance that results when people hear that a relatively small group of men using low-tech weapons caused such cataclysmic carnage.

I did not realize the number of people who actually believe this. I thought the number of people was much lower than the 53% mentioned in this post. It’s still hard for me to believe that the government would have killed so many Americans and caused so much destruction just to have a reason to attack the Middle East. I know there a lot of people who believe in conspiracies with the government, but this is one that seems too extreme for me.
