Here's the film the film 9/11 CTers wish Oliver Stone had made...
New Oliver Stone 9/11 Film Introduces 'Single Plane' Theory

NEW YORKAcademy Award-winning director Oliver Stone said Monday that his new film World Trade Center unveils "compelling and controversial" new evidence that a single plane was responsible for all four collisions in New York, Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania on Sept. 11, 2001.

...
World Trade Center... tells a story quite different from what Stone called "the official government line" about the event. According to the film, at 8:46 a.m., a lone commercial airliner flew diagonally through the North Tower of the World Trade Center, maintained a circular holding pattern for approximately 17 minutes, then struck the South Tower before heading to the Pentagon.

After its collision with the center of American military operations, the so-called "magic plane"which variously and ingeniously identified itself to air-traffic controllers as "American Airlines Flight 11," "United Airlines Flight 175," "American Airlines Flight 77" and "United Airlines Flight 93"took to the skies once again, landing at a top-secret "black-ops" Air Force base in West Virginia, where it was reloaded with a group of clones from another shadowy government program that Stone described as "shocking."

...
Here's my favorite part:
Early public reaction to the film has been skeptical. Many 9/11 conspiracy theorists claim Stone is presenting an exploitative, far-fetched, and manipulative Hollywood version of the pain and sufferingincluding eye strain and carpal tunnel syndromethey have undergone during their countless hours on the Internet in the tragedy's aftermath.


So I guess now CTers will now be adding the Onion to their list of government agents (along with Snopes.com, just about every structural engineer on the planet, everyone who says that they saw the planes fly into WTC1 & 2 and the Pentagon, the police and fire services that had to deal with these disasters, etc..)

"There's no way anyone can ever deny there was only one plane."

5. I suppose you also believe that Clinton killed Vince Foster?
Point is, not all conspiracy theories are the same.
The OP isn't about JFK. Thanks for appreciating the satire.

9. Actually it wouldn't surprise me
Clinton is not in the clear by any stretch in my book. It's pretty well documented that he aided and abetted the Mena Arkansas drug and money laundering operation while Governor, which qualified him to be a bonafide candidate for the Oval Office.

All conspiracy theories are not the same, that's true. But Democrats are not immune from conspiring either. History bears that out.

10. Well said. Anyone w/hopes of being Pres. MUST establish their "bones".

It seems mandatory.

BTW - Clinton was in Australia on 9/11. Coincidence? Why sure.

7. !
In a gripping sequence, undercover agents transmit pre-recorded cell-phone messages intended to fool loved ones and relatives with a false cover story as the aircraft heads to its final, prearranged crash site in the fields of southwestern Pennsylvania.


Showing his skeptical but supportive wife the footage frame by frame, Cage notices that the so-called "first" plane, which, according to official, whitewashed reports, detonated upon impact with the North Tower in the initial collision, actually banks "back and to the left, circling for about 17 minutes, and then diving into the other tower." He repeats the phrase over and over in increasing intensity, toggling back and forth between individual frames while the music swells and the emotional drama rises to a fever pitch.


Obviously written by Rovian plants... :P
