Why I believed the "official story" about 9-11

Believe it or not, I didn't always think 9-11 was an inside job ... there was about a month back in 2001 where I went along with what the mainstream media was telling us. It's been a long time, but since I'd like currently unaware people to start questioning their misguided trust in the official story, it's important for me to ask myself why ... why did I believe back then what so many still believe today?

They wouldn't dare

It's not that I didn't think the Bush Administration wasn't evil enough to murder hundreds of innocent Americans ... though I can understand why other Americans would think this way. I knew that Bush had stolen the 2000 election, and someone that ruthless against the principles of democracy probably wouldn't blink at killing hundreds of Americans. But now we have proof of how ruthless and uncaring these people are: they lied us into a war that ended up killing and maiming thousands of Americans and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis. But it would have taken the collusion of (at the very least) scores of people to pull off an inside job, or even a "let it happen on purpose" scenario the scope of what took place that September. Is it possible for that many people to keep such a horrible secret from the public? Yes, according to the man who disclosed the "Pentagon Papers," Daniel Ellsberg:

But I didn't know that. Early on, I read some papers on Indymedia from people who knew their physics and how buildings were constructed, and said, "there's no way those buildings could have fallen like that. Jet fuel doesn't melt steel. Buildings, if they're going to fall, topple over, they don't disintegrate (at free-fall speed!) into their own footprint, unless it's a well planned, controlled demolition. Today 1,501 verified architectural and engineering professionals agree with that assessment:

How could they plant all those bombs in secret?

Okay ... I thought. How the hell did they rig up those buildings for a controlled demolition without everyone else in the building knowing about it??? Again, GW at Washington's blog has the answer:

Those were my major misgivings. It turns out that it is possible for hundreds of insiders to keep a secret ... this was done during the Manhattan Project, responsible for killing thousands that probably didn't have to die, and unleashing one of the most terrible weapons this Earth has ever known. How many terrible weapons does the acknowledged "Shadow Government" of this country have access to, that most people don't know about? (Hint: look up "HAARP" on your internet browser.)

Despite these hesitations, I realized the "official conspiracy theory" (that 19 guys with boxcutters who trained on Cessnas were capable of knocking down three of the largest skyscrapers in the world and hitting the Pentagon) was even more unlikely, so I kept researching -- and was soon overwhelmed with so much evidence pointing towards an "inside job" scenario I could not in good conscience believe the official story. There are so many inside stock deals, unbelievable gaffes in protocol (in which the offenders weren't punished but promoted) and impossibly convenient coinciences ... anyone in their right mind who looks into this story has to ask ... "why haven't we properly investigated these things? This deserves not only a second look, but a serious government investigation!"

World Trade Center 7 is a 47-story building that was never hit by a plane. It completely collapsed the afternoon of 9/11/01, allegedly due to fire. Many family members of 9-11 victims think there's more to the story. You can contribute to the cause of their informing the public about this anomaly here:
