Conspiracy Theories On 9/11 AttacksBy: Kayla Forsberg

Comparing Popular Mechanics negative view to 9/11 conspiracy theories to Popular Mechanics positive view to 9/11 conspiracy theoriesThe Planes (continues on next slide)Wheres The Pod?Claims- Military pod a missile.- A bomb or a piece of equipment on a air re-fueling tanker.- Inside job planned by President George Bush.Facts- Greely is an expert at analyzing images to determine the shape and features of geological formations based on shadow and light effects. - Greely studies the photo comparing it to photos of a Boeing 767- 200ERs undercarriage.Conclusion- The photo is only a pod that contains landing gear.- The sunlight glinting off the fairing gave it an exaggerated look causing enlargement on film which tends to amplified on digital versions of images.- The pixels are saturated and tend to spill over to adjacent pixels. - There were no bombs or missiles in the pod.

No Stand-Down OrderClaims- No fighter jets were scrambled from any of the 28 Air Force Bases within closes range of the four hijacked planes. - Air Force ordered to Stand Down on 9/11.Facts- Hijackers turned off the planes transporters, which broadcast identifying signals.- ATC or Air Traffic Control searched for signals and tried to contact the Air Force but could not find any because the hijackers turned off the planes transporters.- NORDAD or North American Air Defense Command made the mistake of not being prepared; looking outward for threats instead of inward.- Could only intercept planes off shore of the US called Air Defense Identification Zones (ADIZ)Conclusion- There was no Stand Down on 9/11.- ATC and NORDAD tried to look but couldnt contact the Air Force because the hijackers turned off the planes transporters.

Ask your-self this- Could cell phones receive reception from the altitude the planes typically fly because cell phone calls were made from the hijacked planes of 9/11?

The World Trade Center DamageClaims- No way impact can cause such wide spread damage 80 stories below.- Explosives were used on lower floors.Facts- Plane debris sliced right through utility shaft.- Burning fuel from plane traveled down the elevator causing damage to the elevator and to the lower floors.- Some elevators slammed right down to the ground floor. Conclusion- Explosives were not used to damage lower floors.

Puffs of DustClaims- Explosives caused the tower to collapse and create puffs of dust.Facts- Unable to absorb the massive energy, that floor would fail, transmitting the forces to the floor below, allowing the collapse to progress downward through the building in a chain reaction called pancaking and it does not require a explosion to begin.- Huge volumes of air caused enormous energy to come into place while floors pancake creating the illusion of explosives going off. Conclusion- Explosives did not cause the tower to collapse and create puffs of dust; pancaking caused the tower to collapse and while falling huge volumes of air caused enormous energy to come into place creating the illusion of explosives going off.

WTC 7 CollapseClaims- Controlled demolition on WTC 7 seven hours after two towers fell.Facts- WTC 7 collapsed over time due to fires and intense structural damage.Conclusion- WTC 7 collapsed because of fires and intense structural damage and WTC did not collapse because of controlled demolition.

The PentagonBig Plane, Small HolesClaims- Two holes were visible in the Pentagon immediately after the attack: a 75-ft.-wide entry hole in the building's exterior wall, and a 16-ft.-wide hole in Ring C, the Pentagon's middle ring.- Holes in Pentagon too small to fit Boeing 757.- Missile or different type of plane hit the Pentagon. Facts- one wing hit the ground; the other was sheared off by the force of the impact with the Pentagon's load-bearing columns, explains Sozen, who specializes in the behavior of concrete buildings. What was left of the plane flowed into the structure in a state closer to a liquid than a solid mass.Conclusion- The plane hit the Pentagon differently causing it to make a smaller hole. There was no missile or other plane that hit the Pentagon.

Intact WindowsClaims- Since the windows were intact when the plane crashed, a missile caused the damage to the pentagon.Facts- The windows are blast resistant. ConclusionThere was no missile that hit the Pentagon.

Ask Yourself This- Why was the plane that hit the pentagon not shot down prior to impact? Why did the plane crash into an area that was emptied do to renovations? Flight 93 destroyed by white jet, no terrorists were aboard, the passengers were drugged, and the bumble planes theory, when people from flight 11, 175, and 77 were brought aboard flight 93 so the military can kill them.Indian LakeClaims- "Others reported what appeared to be crash debris floating in Indian Lake, nearly 6 miles from the immediate crash scene." - a strong cold front pushed through the area, and behind itwinds blew northerly. Since Flight 93 crashed west-southwest of Indian Lake, it was impossible for debris to fly perpendicular to wind direction. ... - Theorists claim the plane was breaking up before it crashed. states bluntly: "Without a doubt, Flight 93 was shot down."Facts- No heavy debris was found near the lake, only light debris was found because of the concussion. - Indian Lake is less than 1.5 miles southeast from the crash site not 6.- Wind that day was northwesterly, at 9 to 12mph, blowing towards Indian Lake.Conclusion- The plane was not shot down.

F-16 PilotClaims- In February 2004, retired Army Col. Donn de Grand-Pre said on "The Alex Jones Show," a radio talk show broadcast on 42 stations: "It [Flight 93] was taken out by the North Dakota Air Guard. I know the pilot who fired those two missiles to take down 93.-, citing de Grand-Pre, identifies the pilot: "Major Rick Gibney fired two Sidewinder missiles at the aircraft and destroyed it in midflight at precisely 0958."Facts- Gibney flew an F-16 that morning--but nowhere near Shanksville. He took off from Fargo, N.D., and flew to Bozeman, Mont., to pick up Ed Jacoby Jr., the director of the New York State Emergency Management Office. Gibney then flew Jacoby from Montana to Albany, N.Y., so Jacoby could coordinate 17,000 rescue workers engaged in the state's response to 9/11. Jacoby confirms the day's events. "I was in Big Sky for an emergency managers meeting. Someone called to say an F-16 was landing in Bozeman. From there we flew to Albany." - Jacoby is outraged by the claim that Gibney shot down Flight 93.Conclusion- The F-16 did not shoot down the Flight 93 plane. The conspiracy theorists were wrong.

Did you know that on 9/11 4,000 Jewish employees took off from work? Some of the first people to record the attacks on camera were Jewish.F:\Conspiracy theories on 911 paragraph.docxAsk Me No Questions By: Marina Budhos

Summary Ask Me No Questions is a book thats about a Muslim family living in the U.S. after 9/11. The Muslim family includes Abba, Ma, Aisha, and Nadira Hossian. Abba is the father, Ma is the mother, and Aisha and Nadira are the two daughters. They used to live in Bangladesh, but their country got split in two, Pakistan is where the Muslims lived and India is where all the others lived. So, the Hossian family moved to America before 9/11 on tourist visas to have a better live. They lived in peace going on with their life, but when their visas eventually were expired, the Hossain family tried to become legal citizens of the U.S. When that failed, they tried to cross the border to Canada only to turn back because of their expired visas, and Abba being detained. While Abba was detained and Ma was at the shelter waiting for any good news, Aisha and Nadira try to get their father out of detainment for only Aisha to become stressed out of all the hard work leaving Nadira, the daughter that lives behind Aishas shadow, to find a way to bring their family back together again. They fear they will have to be deported and nothing will be the same. But, Nadira finds a way to get her father out of detainment. The officers accuse Abba of putting money into a suspicious account and having an expired visa. So, Nadira gets all the money the officers think Abba is putting into a suspicious account and a letter from the guy that held the money for Abba and brings it to them during a court meeting. She tells them that the money Abba put into the account was the money for hers and Aishas tuition. The judge tells them is
