Provisional results of our latest (continuing) poll show that 58% of those polled to date believe 9/11 was an ‘inside job’.

The poll, which ends October 24 PST, asks one simple but contentious question: Do you believe 9/11 was an inside job? The question refers of course to those persistent conspiracy theories that the September 11 attacks should be attributed to the US Government (or agencies of) and not to terrorists.

This interim result would seem to reflect the belief of many (Americans especially) that the September 11 attacks – including the “controlled collapse” of New York’s Twin Towers and 7 World trade Center – were orchestrated by US officialdom to provide a ‘false flag’ justification for invading Afghanistan and Iraq.

Predictably, the poll, which is running in our discussion group 29 Conspiracy Theories, is generating some heated discussion.

Meanwhile, here’s some of the comments received to date (names redacted):

I’m totally shocked there are still people out here who actually still believe the government’s story!


Inside job as someone in our own Government did this? If that is what this quiz is about then hell no.


Charlie Sheen has by his own admission fried his brain with more drugs than he can probably recall and even he knows the official 9/11 story wouldn’t pass for a bad B-movie script: “It seems to me like 19 amateurs with box-cutters taking over four commercial airliners and hitting 75 percent of their targets, that feels like a conspiracy theory.” -Charlie Sheen


I think yes….only because it was an anniversary to something…and they were using that as justification for this attack. Very sad that people have been reduced to this type of behavior.


The official story is a joke and has more holes in it than a Swiss cheese. Now does that mean it was an Inside Job? Not necessarily. But it sure doesn’t bode well. Anyone who researches 9/11 soon realizes that while there’s no smoking gun, there’s a plethora of anomalies like building 7 and Dick Cheney’s “stand down” orders to his minions which is on-the-record to name only two.


My personal un-provable belief is that, at some level, the US knew this was coming. They calculated the benefits that could be extracted by the rulers under every scenario they could imagine, and this was the result; a perennial war feeding the war machine; a law to strike fear in the heart of every free man; a depleted US Treasury contributing to the economic demise of the population; a logical attempt at a total takeover.


It seems so convenient for those who wanted a “Patriot Act” and provide the excuse to fund the war machine for this to have happened. The tapes of the firefighters indicated that they were hearing continued explosions. These tapes are now “confidential.”


If you simply have faith in your country and government and media that they tell you the truth, then of course you’ll believe 9/11 was the whole known Bin Laden/Al Queada story.


Man, there’s just SO much evidence out there, I don’t know where to begin: the Bin Laden families being flown out of no-go air space the day after. The U.S/Saudi connection. The fact that Building Seven came down without reason, and is most definitely a demolition job, as was the towers themselves- supported by well over two thousand actual architects (see link). The fact that Bin Laden was trained by the CIA. The false excuse for invading Iraq which had nothing to do with Al Queada at that time. The video footage of Bush being told America was under attack, whilst he just nodded and carried on reading a nursery story about a goat…


Reminder: Our poll “Do you believe 9/11 was an inside job?” closes October 24 PST. Your opinion is welcome. Go to:



The rumors persist that 9/11 was an inside job: bombs, not planes, leveled Twin Towers; inside traders knew about the 9/11 attacks before they happened; Air Defense was ordered to stand down etc. etc.

As the rumor mill continues to churn out theories on what happened on that unforgettable day in 2001, we are reminded of an incident in US history that could have resulted in the officially sanctioned murders of countless American citizens.

The incident we refer to is ‘Operation Northwoods’ – an especially murky episode in American history. It features prominently in the very first chapter of our new release book THE ORPHAN CONSPIRACIES: 29 Conspiracy Theories from The Orphan Trilogy. Here’s an excerpt:

In 1962, the US Government’s Department of Defense and Joint Chiefs of Staff proposed carrying out acts of terrorism on American soil to justify military intervention in Cuba.

Hard to swallow or believe, we know, but it’s on the record. Numerous military and intelligence documents recording these disturbing false flag proposals, known as Operation Northwoods, have since been declassified.

Operation Northwoods remained a secret for 35 years. The sinister proposal first came to the public’s attention in November 1997 when The John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Review Board declassified various top secret military records, which included the Northwoods documents. The following year, the National Security Archive published further revealing information on Northwoods.

A (since declassified) ‘Top Secret’ memo dated March 13, 1962, addressed to the Secretary of Defense and signed by then-Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff makes for interesting reading. Its subject line reads: Justification for US Military Intervention in Cuba.

Item No. 1 on that memo reads: “The Joint Chiefs of Staff have considered the attached Memorandum for the Chief of Operations, Cuba Project, which responds to a request of that office for brief but precise description of pretexts which would provide justification for US military intervention in Cuba.”

Operation Northwoods’ plans included the sinking of US war ships, shooting down hijacked passenger planes, killing innocent American citizens, letting off bombs and orchestrating other violent terrorist acts in major cities including Washington DC and Miami.

Every event would be blamed on Fidel Castro and the Cuban regime. The Joint Chiefs of Staff’s logic was that these events would help gain enough support from the American public and the world at large for a US military invasion of Cuba.

Fortunately, President Kennedy immediately rejected the Northwoods proposal and fired one of its main proponents, Lyman Lemnitzer, who was then Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The following year, Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas, while Lemnitzer was appointed Supreme Allied Commander of NATO.

Go figure!

In his 2001 book Body of Secrets, US political journalist and bestselling author James Bamford wrote that Operation Northwoods “called for innocent people to be shot on American streets; for boats carrying refugees fleeing Cuba to be sunk on the high seas; for a wave of violent terrorism to be launched in Washington, D.C., Miami, and elsewhere. People would be framed for bombings they did not commit; planes would be hijacked. Using phony evidence, all of it would be blamed on Castro, thus giving Lemnitzer and his cabal the excuse, as well as the public and international backing, they needed to launch their war”.

Sadly, Bamford is one of the few well-known political commentators to write about Operation Northwoods. When the documents were declassification in 1997, they were almost universally ignored by the media.

Apparently on-the-record discussions within the US Government about murdering its own citizens as propaganda to create a war were not deemed newsworthy.
