The 9/11 truth movement has been around since the late 1990s, and its main claim to fame is the false flag attacks of September 11, 2001.
The idea is that the terrorists were trained by American intelligence to attack the United States.
In the United Kingdom, the US government’s own official report in 2004 concluded that the attacks were a false-flag operation and that the government was not responsible.
In the United Arab Emirates, the government has issued a ruling that the attack was a fake and that Osama Bin Laden was involved.
In Australia, the 9/1/01 attacks have been seen as a pretext to overthrow the government of Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and impose a new regime led by the former prime minister Julia Gillard.
But, as with most conspiracy theories, there are many who believe that the 9 of 9 attacks were staged.
In a video produced by The Truth Team, a group that claims to be the world’s largest collection of 9/12 truth enthusiasts, they make a case for why the attacks of 9-1-01 are a false claim.
“We don’t need to know anything about the 9 September attacks, we need to have a conversation about them,” one of the founders of the organisation says.
“There are many theories out there about how these events happened, but the only ones that are based on solid facts are the 9 9-9-01 attacks,” they say.
“So we have to take the time to get to the truth.”
A ‘sick’ conspiracy theory, says Professor Stephen Jones “It is one of those things that, like the whole idea of 9+1=7, it’s a sick conspiracy theory,” said Professor Stephen A. Jones, a professor at the University of Sydney and an expert in 9/01 conspiracy theories.
“It doesn’t really need to be a very detailed explanation.”
The Truth Team says that a large part of the population are convinced by the claims of the “false flag” attacks.
“When we talk about a conspiracy, the people who believe the conspiracies are sick,” said Mr Jones.
“I would say, it is sick that people believe that a number of these false flags happened on 9-7.”
The truth is that we don’t know exactly what happened on September 11 in New York, the Washington, DC, and in London.
There is no consensus on what happened.
In London, there was widespread belief that the building collapsed because of a fire, and the collapse itself was blamed on terrorists, but there was no evidence to support this.
The collapse of WTC 7 was never widely reported.
The World Trade Centre Building 7 was not destroyed on 9/7, nor were the planes that struck the towers.
But if 9/9/01 was a staged event, then why did we hear a lot about the false flags on 9.11?
“People would say something was false-flagged, but it wasn’t, and it was probably a lot of false-flags,” Professor Jones said.
“The 9-6-01 attack, for example, was a bit of a wild goose chase.
It wasn’t like the 9.7-11 attacks, where you had a lot more details coming out about what happened.”
Professor Jones said it was more likely that the false-Flag attacks were “just the beginning of a wider conspiracy”.
“It’s possible there was a larger conspiracy, or that there was more to the 9 attacks,” he said.
It’s also possible that the events in London on 9 September 2001 were staged, with an international false flag event being the trigger.
“If you had all of these 9 attacks coming together in London, and we could see them all in one place, you could see that there were all sorts of false flags going on,” Professor Stephen said.
Professor Jones believes that the real reason for the 9 and 9.1 false flags is that they are all related.
“All of these attacks are part of this global conspiracy,” he explained.
“For example, in London you had the World Trade Center on fire, you had hijacked planes crashing into the buildings, you also had a false building collapse in New Jersey.”
He says that the most likely explanation is that these attacks were all connected.
“What we see is that all of this was a very big operation,” Professor Kevin said.
“So if you look at the events from the 9 to 9.9 false flag, you can see the whole story, and all of the conspirators are connected.”
The “World Trade Center false flag” was the first false flag attack to be widely reported, and was the trigger for the real 9 and 1 false flags.
