Is the 9/11 conspiracy theory becoming more accepted? According to one article, it is. Jesse Ventura was a guest on Piers Morgan Tonight recently, and talk turned to the 9/11 tragedy. Morgan referred to Ventura’s conspiracy theory about the event as a crackpot theory. Ventura then proceeded to ask the audience how many people agreed with him, and enthusiastic applause followed. So the idea that 9/11 was an inside job does seem to be gaining support, at least on the part of average people.
The funny thing is that even if 9/11 was not an inside job (I’m still debating the issue with myself), more and more people will probably be more likely to believe it because of the general distrust that people are exponentially feeling toward the government. When we hear stories like the one involving Fast and Furious’ Eric Holder being released from any wrongdoing by the Department of Justice for the gunrunning scandal known as Fast and Furious, our distrust grows because it can seem sometimes like ‘they’ are all in it together. One theory about the Fast and Furious scandal is that Barack Obama’s administration was supplying Mexican drug cartels with guns so that they can point to the Mexican situation and say, “Look, America, we need more stringent gun control laws because look what happens when there is less control!” Every time a political scandal surfaces such as this, chances are at least one more person is going to think the 9/11 conspiracy theory is slightly more likely.
The connection between Fast and Furious, and 9/11, is that both raise questions of how involved the govenrment was in the execution of those plots. I have no doubt believing that the Obama administration was behind the gunrunning for the reason described above, but I do find it harder to believe that 9/11 was an inside job. I’m not quite ready to accept the level of evil that would have to exist in order for it to be an inside job, but I do have a very negative view of human nature so it is possible that eventually, once I learn more, I will accept that 9/11 was an inside job. What do you think? Which of the two events do you think the government was behind? Or both? Or neither?
