Question for the 9/11 Conspiracy Theorists

As we approach the 10-year anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, I am hearing about the conspiracy theories again. Some say that the World Trade Center tower could not have collapsed that way simply due to airliners crashing into them. The conspiracy nuts say that demolition charges must have been placed in the buildings.

There is also talk that the building 7 collapse secondary to the WTC fires "could not have happened" because steel buildings blah, blah, blah. And despite that fact that some Jewish people we're killed in the attacks, there are those who say that Jews were told not to go to work that day because Israel was behind the attacks.

Forget about all the eyewitnesses who saw the planes crash into the towers and the Pentagon.

Here is my question. Over the last 10 years when absolutely no one, I mean no one, can keep a secret for even 30 seconds, how is it that all the guys who set the demolition charges in all the buildings and all the Jews who were called and the people who did the calling have never said one word about what happened?

Not bloody likely.

9/10/2011 ADDENDUM

Last night, @jordjonny tweeted this in reply to me:

"they've probaly [sic] been killed off."

He added a link to a video with the provocative title "911 Witnesses Murdered." The video lists a number of people indirectly or directly linked to the 9/11 attacks who died in "mysterious" and "unexplained" ways. If these deaths were part of a cover-up of the intricate conspiracy, then a number of local, state and federal police agencies as well as the Federal Aviation Administration [there were people who died in plane crashes] would have to be in on it. And all of these public officials would also have not said word one about all this in the last 10 years.

I don't see how that many people could keep such a monumental secret.

Another point the Troofers skate away from is that Donald Rumsfeld was in the Pentagon that day. If he was in on the plot, he surely would have arranged to be inspecting a base in Germany or Okinawa that day; if he wasn't, well, a pissed-off Secretary of Defense is a very dangerous enemy because of the vast resources he controls. This includes a small army of detectives, inspectors-general and auditors, and influence over many other agencies that depend on DOD for support.

it's just absurd and offensive to me when people try to argue that the government was behind 9/11. and I tried to watch "loose change" it was insulting and all the "scientific evidence" was complete BS.

Thanks for the comments.

Conspiracy theories abound. Here’s another blog I wrote about the “contrail” conspiracy.

There will always be conspiracy theories, just like the JFK case. Some people will not believe anything unless they actually live it.

9/11 Empiricists don't have it any easier than the Theorists; some percent of the people who made the threat ahead having thought better and made wonky rudder trim, say, save the day, being in on it v. being told what to (not) do by authority, losing a carpet-knife fight, ATC override oversight; none of it says someone was at home unless that hero's coldly drawing a raid on competing monotheism.
