Several alternative theories to the events of 9/11 have emerged which contradict the official account of the September 11, 2001 attacks. Those who question the official story identify themselves as being part of the 9/11 Truth Movement, and their claims typically include suggestions that individuals in the government of the United States or Israel knew of the impending attacks and refused to act on that knowledge.

Some have suggested the attacks were a false flag operation carried out with the intention of stirring up the passions and winning the allegiance of the American people in order to facilitate military spending, support Israeli oppression of the Palestinians, the restriction of civil liberties, and/or a program of aggressive and profitable foreign policy.

Several members of the 9/11 Truth Movement claim that the collapse of the World Trade Center was the result of a controlled demolition and/or that United Airlines Flight 93 was shot down. Some also contend that a commercial airliner did not crash into the Pentagon; this position is debated within the 9/11 Truth Movement, with many who believe that AA Flight 77 did crash there, but that it was allowed to crash via an effective stand down of the military.[1]

An Italian member of parliament, Paolo Bernini, even described the events as an inside job and the account of what happened as a conspiracy.[2]


In April 2001, filmed earlier, the pilot episode of the conspiracy TV show The Lone Gunmen, an X-Files spinoff, had its plot about the US government hijacking an airplane by remote control and crashing it into the world trade center as part of a false flag attack.

The Zim American-Israeli Shipping (“Zim”)--the predecessor company of the present Zim Integrated Shipping Services--had leased office space in the World Trade Center. On 9/11, Zim’s headquarters was in Haifa, Israel and it was 49 percent owned by the Israeli. The company moved out of the WTC around Sept. 4, 2001 and into a newly built office building in Norfolk, VA, even though they had a significant remaining lease obligation at the WTC and it was six months before they were supposed to actually move.[3]
