The Conspiracy Files: 9/11 Ten Years On

I thoroughly enjoyed The Conspiracy Files: 9/11 Ten Years On, which was broadcast last night on BBC2 television. It only last for 60 minutes but it covered a lot of ground. The programme was well balanced and let the viewer form their opinion of the veracity of each conspiracy theory. Here are five of the most prominent 9/11 conspiracy theories circulating in online communities. The death of Osama Bin Laden might have been expected to put an end to the conspiracy theories, but the failure to release any pictures of Bin Laden's death and the hasty disposal of his body in the Arabian Sea, has instead given these theories a new burst of life.

The Conspiracy Files: 9/11 Ten Years On was a great programme to watch. It was entertaining and although it happened nearly 10 years ago, the reporting seemed very fresh. I enjoy all conspiracies as they offer food for thought and quite often governments have shown that they can't be trusted. Watching the whole programme, I believe that all the 9/11 conspiracies were debunked and shown to be false. Brilliant television though and as I watched each conspiracy being explained, I did think that maybe they were on to something and lies may have been told. Then when experts explained the many flaws in these conspiracies, I understood how people can jump to conclusions when they have been lied to so many times in the past by their elected representatives.

I watched the same programme and agree with your comments. The only thing I do not believe the experts managed to explain, is why the entry 'hole' in the side of the Pentagon was as small as it was. Clearly, plane parts and bodies were found, as described by witnesses, and footage exists which hasn't been released by the FBI/CIA, but no one said why the entry point was as narrow as it was.

Not that I believe any of the conspiracy theories at all.
Yes, the Pentagon had me puzzled because Al Qaeda do very good research into their attacks. I found it very difficult to believe that the terrorists chose the strongest part of the Pentagon to fly into rather than the weakest link.
