Look at the OP's first link - the claim is that the flight crew and passenger's phone calls were fake and made by actors in a hangar.

Wasn't it proven that the cell phone technology needed to make all these calls from high altitude was not available in 2001? That the technology wasn't that advanced at that time?

Yes. In 2013 they were talking about how people might be allowed to make in-flight phone calls, but that the airlines would have to install satellite technology for them to be able to do this.

https://money.cnn.com/2013/11/22/tec...hts/index.html

The phone calls are one of the things that didn't quite make sense when it happened.

Several things didn't make sense.

The very first thought I had while it was happening and while the news replayed it over and over - was how could someone getting a Joe Citizen's kind of pilot license command a commercial plane as though he'd been flying for years? It couldn't have looked any smoother, at least the clips we were shown, and it never sat right with me.

That doesn't mean I believe in any conspiracy theories. There is a place between 'believes everything being fed to us by the government via the mainstream media' and 'I wear a tinfoil hat' and I sit somewhere between the two.

The last group I'm willing to believe on anything is the government, however.

I'm in this camp.

They faked a ton of things for the moon landing too and got busted.

In the end it's government so you never know what really happened.

Silverstein buys terrorist insurance on his purchase of the twin towers 6 weeks before the attack....
Really?
Ever read every insurance policy ever? Always a terror act exclusion.

Talk about conspiracy.
Then 14 years of war to cover it up.


Then today Silverstein promotes Grafitti Art all over walls in front of the Twin Tower location...trying to cover up his guilt much for being complicit and profitting off the death of thousands of people...?

This doesn't raise the eyebrows with me. He didn't buy the towers until July 24th, so that would mean he insured it almost as soon as he bought it. And yes, he bought separate terrorism insurance coverage because several people in NYC were saying for years that the towers would be an easy target for terrorist acts. That was just a smart business decision.

And maybe because the North Tower had already had a terrorist attack in 1993?

Exactly. I don't think the truth is all out there, but this is one thing that I'm not questioning.
