[quote] 9/11 conspiracy theories come under fire
Two separate reports combat belief by some that U.S. government had role in terror attacks

Faced with an angry minority of people who believe the Sept. 11 attacks were part of a plot run by Americans, separate reports were published this week by the State Department and a federal science agency insisting that the catastrophes were caused by hijackers who used commercial airliners as weapons.
The official narrative of the attacks has been attacked as little more than a cover story by conspiracy theorists, including those who say the Bush administration wanted to use the attacks to justify military action in the Middle East. Some propose that the collapse of the World Trade Center was actually caused by explosive charges secretly planted in the buildings.
The government reports and officials say the demolition argument is utterly implausible on a number of grounds.
On Wednesday, the National Institute of Standards and Technology issued a seven-page study based on its earlier 10,000-page report on how and why the trade center collapsed. The full report, released a year ago, and the synopsis are available online at wtc.nist.gov.
The State Department report is titled, “The Top Sept. 11 Conspiracy Theories” and says, “Numerous unfounded conspiracy theories about the Sept. 11 attacks continue to circulate, especially on the Internet.” The report is dated Aug. 28 and appears as a special feature on the department’s web site, at usinfo.state.gov/media/ misinformation.html.
The report brought to light one little-known detail about the morning: a private demolition monitoring firm, Protec Documentation Services, had seismographs at several construction sites in Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn.
Those machines documented the tremors of the falling towers, but captured no ground vibrations before the collapses from demolition charges or bombs, according to a separate report by Brent Blanchard, the director of
field operations for Protec.
Now, I also, am looking for a high paying job researching the obvious.
