Troofer Morons Proliferate Around the Globe

by PAUL L. WILLIAMS, PHD September 25, 2010
From Egypt to Ottawa, millions of people agree with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that the U.S. government orchestrated the attacks of 9/11.
 
The Iranian president leveled this charge in an address before the UN’s General Assembly on Thursday, causing Western diplomats, including representatives from Canada and the European Union, to walk out of the meeting in protest.
 
Ahmadinejad said that U.S. officials engineered the attacks in order to “reverse the declining American economy” and to save “the Zionist regime.”
 
P.J. Crowley, the U.S. assistant secretary of state, called the statement “totally outrageous.”
 
But, according to a survey by the Program on International Policy [PIPA} at the University of Maryland, only 46% of the world’s population believe “the party line” that the 9/11 event was planned by Osama bin Laden and executed by 19 members of al Qaeda.
 
The survey consisted of data obtained from individuals with 16,063 individuals throughout the globe.
 
Bin Laden initially declined but later admitted his complicity in the attacks.
 
In Jordan, 31 per cent of those polled said that Israel was behind the attacks, and only 11 per cent placed the blame on al-Qaeda. In Egypt, 43 per cent blamed Israel for the terror event, and 12 per cent said that the US was responsible. A scant 16% of Egyptians thought that al-Qaeda brought down the trade towers.
 
An additional survey conducted by Scrippsnews shows that 36 per cent of Americans now consider it "very likely" or "somewhat likely" that US government officials either allowed the attacks to be carried or launched the attacks themselves.
 
The growing conspiracy theory resulted in Loose Change, a so-called “documentary” that questions the official 9/11 narrative.
 
"That 19 hijackers are going to completely bypass security and crash four commercial airliners in a span of two hours, with no interruption from the military forces, in the most guarded airspace in the United States and the world? That to me is a conspiracy theory," Korey Rowe, the film's director, said.
 
Mainstream media in the West, and even the US government itself, have felt a need to respond to these theories. The US State Department’s Bureau of International Information Programs has established a website to debunk the "top September 11 conspiracy theories".
 
In a piece titled "Why the 9/11 Conspiracy Theories Won't Go Away", Time argues that what many would call conspiracy theories are "not a fringe phenomenon".
 
Some of the claims of conspiracy theorists include speculation that the twin towers did not collapse from the impact of two Boeing 767s and the petrol stored in their tanks, but rather from planned, controlled demolition - perhaps through explosions in the basement.
 
Another popular theory is that a missile fired by elements from within the US government hit the Pentagon, rather than an aircraft. Some of the "alternative" or "conspiratorial" views come from people with academic credentials.
 
The Center for Research on Globalization ,a site which frequently publishes articles critical of the "deliberate suppression" of answers on 9/11 and the "falsification of evidence" by the US government, boasts Dr Michel Chossudovsky, a professor at the University of Ottawa and author of the book The Globalisation of Poverty, as one of its leading members.
