I was having Thanksgiving dinner with some friends. And, one of the guys I didn't know real well started complaining about the war. When he said something about Bush and Cheney knowing about 9/11 I had to stop him in his tracks. I said, "Look...I don't want to offend anyone in this room."

And, to set the scene, there were about 25 people there. I said, "If anyone here thinks there was a conspiracy involved with 9/11, and people in our administration, you're an idiot. It's that simple. I understand that at the Adams Avenue Street Scene, they had booths set up passing out pamphlets stating that Bush knew about the attacks before hand. If I would've seen them, I would've told them, they were idiots. People that believe in conspiracy theories, are idiots. It's that simple."

Another thing to think about -- it's insulting to the families of anyone that died in those buildings.

Of course, a few in the crowd didn't like my comments, but when the women sensed it would escalated, the subjected changed.

Aside from me typing all the reasons why 9/11 had nothing to do with President Bush, and why with President Kennedy there was a lone gunman, and why we really did land on the moon, and why OJ Simpson killed two people...just realize something. For conspiracies to work, you need a lot of people involved. And, you need NONE of those people to talk after years and years.

That, alone, would never happen. With all the book deals, or people itching for their 15 minutes of fame or quick cash, it just wouldn't fly.

If you need more than that, I'll be happy to debate it with ya. But, keep in mind, I'll think you're an idiot the entire time we debate the issue.

I don't think 9/11 was a conspiracy with the US Govt...however, I do believe that there was a conspriacy with JFK...sorry, just throwing that out there. The others you mentioned I believe happened...the moon, OJ being a killer, etc. There's been too many things written on both sides of the JFK thing..too many little coincidences that sway me toward that way...so, if you think I'm an idiot, that's okay with me...you know why? Because everyone is entitled to their opinion... ;-) Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Read the book "Case Closed". A best seller, and written by a credable author with no agenda. Also, in all this time, with all these investagations, time and time again, all they have continued to find over and over, was that it was a lone gunman. That's why there's no ANOTHER book coming out, by (what's his name? Italian guy that also was involved in the OJ case) Bagosi????

How about the House Senate Committee on Assassinations in 1979 stating that there could have been "another shooter", thus making the lone gunman theory impossible, thus being a conspiracy? There is also a book called Six Seconds in Dallas that's good too. Sound recordings, the Zapruder film, etc. Just seems to be too clean, if you know what I mean. Have you been to Dealey Plaza in Dallas? Very eerie. There's a RED X in the middle of the street marking the fatal head shot. For some reason, you're drawn to it...then you look up at the 6th floor of the then Book Depository, then the Grassy Knoll...just puts it all into perspective...I'm not saying you have to visit there to be convinced one way or another, but I can't believe the lone gunman theory. Sorry....but I'll read that book you suggested during the Xmas break from school...

The book was also mentioned a lot on the PBS special on the case. And, you will have no doubts, it was a lone gunman, after that. Trust me. And, it's a great read.
