Today is the 10th anniversary of 9/11, that tragic and terrible event that marked our lives forever. I pay my respects to the memory of all the innocent souls that perished on that hellish day.
As a human being I still carry with me the horror and pain of that unprovoked attack. And as a technical communicator I feel the need to search for the truth behind the collapse of those two magnificent buildings and to separate truth from fiction.
Just like I do not believe in UFOs, I also do not believe in the conspiracy theory that the collapse of the World Trade Center towers was an inside job; that it was the result of a “controlled demolition” which was rigged just so to make it look like an attack by two airliners.
Here is a great feature article from SKEPTIC magazine that addresses 12 “controlled demolition” myths and demolishes them.
On my part, looking at the evidence and thinking through the many sensible questions posed in this article, I am convinced that 9/11 was not a conpiracy at all.
