Too bad 9-11 was an inside job moreover, the American people are will ignorant of this fact. Can anybody explain WTC 7? It's so obvious.

Wow. You do not understand the facts of the building engineering of WTC-7, or the other facts of 9/11. The truth is that we were attacked by foreign enemies in Al-Qaeda, and the attack was not as a result of any US internal plot. You have to be the biggest dumb-ss, in history, along with the people who think that Elvis is alive and well, and eating at his favorite Burger King restaurant in Michigan each day at 2pm. All the claims of conspiracy point to one fact; no person has hard facts that 9/11 was a conspiracy, just like Elvis…..

In the final analysis, while the Bush Administration can be criticized for ignoring warnings that an attack like 9/11 might occur, it is the Clinton Administration which can be accused of actually facilitating 9/11 by conducting a foreign policy that promoted the rise of radical Islam, that attacked us. You bone heads….think.

This story was not written to provoke opinions on how or why 9 11 happened. It was written from the perspective of someone who witnessed and survived this unspeakable tragedy. To Kevin Danni....I'm so glad you survived!! Bless you and your beautiful family.

Agreed too. Aside from the grunge-bone-heads here who think this current war is "false", this news story of Kevin is awesome and heroic. This war is real. True Americans, not cowering in their Mama's 2nd guest bedroom, and who stood up to "educate" themselves on the true facts; and fight for freedom of the USA from terrorist extremists; understand that this war is very real, and 9/11 was an attack by Extreme Islam. Grow up dip-wits out there....

The people who engineered the attack were all Al-Quaeda people, and enemies.

People who think it was an inside job are part of a nutcase crowd that has always existed in America. On a subconscious level, they think that America is supposed to be a perfect society, and that its leaders are endowed with some form of prescience, that is, the ability to see future events. When something bad takes place, this nutcase crowd thinks that some evil party within American institutions must have allowed/created/caused it. In other words, America is the Utopia, and the cause of bad fortune is the Enemy Within.

This is very distorted thinking, but similar stuff has been seen in many times and places. You will be amazed at otherwise intelligent people who get taken in by such stuff. A lot of innocent people get victimized by such mass psychosis.

Thank you. While in some societies the "enemy within" does exist, it is not a conspiracy among individuals for the most part, but the values of the society itself.
In America's case with the 9-11 disaster, politically-correct security theatre was easy to penetrate by outside enemies. Even today, for instance, the United States relies on ridiculous body-searches of everyone, including old ladies at airports. A lot of this nonsense is to impress news media so people THINK the authorities are doing their job, and not just collecting their fat paychecks.
Israel's El Al Airline relies on the other hand on verbal interviews of people; they have not had a hijacking in many years, and their security apparatus does not toadie to the news media.
The United States has never handled the terrorism issue in a realistic manner. It reminds me of the Richard Jewell case, where a security guard was falsly accused of the Atlanta Olympics Bombing, with the FBI stating some grandiose and ridiculous psychological theory as to why Jewell must be the bomber. It was all for press coverage. As a result of this, the real bomber, a religious extremist named Eric Rudolph, stayed under the radar and was not caught for years.

You seem to know so much about nation security...explain how in the world did dudes living in caves, riding camels, with AK-47s strapped come here, learn to fly, hit 3 of 4 targets, all in the meanwhile stand down NORAD for SEVEN HOURS? NORAD, by default, guards US air space 24-7...NORAD, is the most sophisticated, best trained, defense system mankind has ever known. So how did a small group of cavemen do this??? You still haven't explained WTC 7 either making your arguments weak with NO FACTS.

Sir, it is simply a cultural attribute of American people to ignore pending issues until they look them right in the face. At that time, Americans are reasonably good at solving them. While hindsight is always perfect, it is a fact that the Pearl Harbor attack, the 9-11 attack, the Great Recession, the 1980s death toll from HIV, and other issues all were preventable. People in this society who speak of futures problems or issues are treated in the manner that the Trojans treated Cassandra. That is the way things are in the United States. That cultural attribute has been around since the Founding Fathers. It will not go away anytime soon. I suggest you deal with it in a more constructive fashion.

I forgot to add that all the technological expertise in the world is no good unless used in a proper fashion. Putting a lot of faith in science and technology is one thing; expecting science to think for itself while you do not do your part is another. That is the key. Information is worthless unless organized, appreciated, and used.
