"No 9/11 truther has ever been able to answer this for me:
If the Bush administration had planned 911, why would they have filled the planes with Saudis, - Bushco's buddies - and not so much have a single Iraqi aboard. Only to spend the next two years desperately trying to connect 9/11 with Iraq. Anyone?"
No idea. But all you need to know is this. All the government reports and the toothy truthers agree the towers collapsed at damned near free fall as you can get.
So, a tower is just about to collapse. Lets take the N Tower. Suddenly appearing nearby is an extremely large crane. From the crane hangs a piece of office block exactly the same size and weight as that above impact in the N. Tower. It is also being held up at the same height. It has nothing beneath it.
The starters whistle blows and both tops begin to fall.
The crane top falls through the empty air achieving free fall rate as one would expect of something falling freely under gravity alone. As a consequence it arrives at the ground also in the shortest and only time it could have taken; that being free fall time.
But funny enough as it lands so does the top of the N. Tower. But that top did not fall freely but fell through the line of most resistance. Strangely enough it still achieved free fall rate even though it was smashing to smithereens approximately 8 floors a second as it did so. Nonetheless it still arrived at the ground at the free fall time as the fictional top that really did fall freely through empty air. Both tops did entirely different amounts of work coming down. One did nothing the other did as much as to beggar belief. Yet according to NIST gravity was the only force involved.
Now if that doesn't sound true to you, it should still sound untrue whether Elvis, James Dean, Marilyn Munro or Donald fucking Duck was on the plane.
