    well, this is more spoon fed BS for the masses. Kinda goes along with the official story as well, this guy does his utmost to sing the republican/democrat lies. What makes it worse for me is when he brings the non existent pink unicorn in the sky into the equation. The moral dilemma he is in is a joke, he lies like the rest all the way through this. He swallowed the blue pill as far as I’m concerned. Hope he chokes on it along with all his official story believing sheep friends. Sad state of affairs in the ole USA when people believe the basic laws of physics can be bent and changed to corroborate the neo-con story of that day. Buildings cannot fall that way without explosives. Period. Irrefutable. That’s just 1 impossibility of that day out of hundreds.

    But thanks Vlad, always a pleasure to visit here.

      agree ^ indeed buildings do not fall like that, and many high ranking engineers have said this,

      the bs people are lead to believe is the jet fuel burned the iron which was covered in tons and tons of thick cement ,. and made the iron melt and the building fell,

    Enjoyed the documentary, it gives, I think, a good impartial account of what his experience was after being in Afghanistan and meeting some of the key players.Well balanced work, thanks.

    My god..could we stop with the conspiracies about 9/11…
    It seems that every time some event happens that seems too great to be caused by such a simple chain of events we MUST claim it’s due to some great govt conspiracy…
    No explosives in the towers, fools! It was what it was…any other claim is an insult to human intelligence..
    Anyone planting the amount of explosives needed for a job like that would have been noticed..

      Never, ever, ever believe there is no conspiracy. JFK Lone Gunman theory anyone?

      Do you notice the cleaners at your work when you are at home? Notice that a man in security uniform means you never question him?

      And have you come up with a theory YOU can believe about WTC7? Why did it “collapse”? No jet fuel, no plane impact. Buildings in between didnt fall. Why has it never happened before?

      The PUT options on the stock market. Dead giveaway. Osama and crew are speculative investors also?

    Even before the events of 9/11 we as a nation have been turning our country into a prison for the generations who follow. We keep adding more and more and more laws in the name of justice and in the name of safety and security for the next generation, we are adding technology that keeps every one connected and even places a GPS signal on their locations, we are putting video cameras every where and even making them affordable enough that everyone will have one.
    We are tightening the noose around our own precious freedom and the mass can do nothing about it. Because in their FEAR they cry out, and put their selves, their freedom, their sinless self conscience into the hands of someone who will take the action that they themselves are too good of a people to take.
    It is not a conspiracy, it is simply the people that you put in charge, doing what it is that they need to do in order to take, keep, and replenish the power that you have given them.
