Maybe you're interviews are going so poorly because the students never took a course in critical thinking. Maybe their professors just instructed them to sit complacently and never question anything. Truth is infallible. You can examine it all you want and it remains what it was. One-sided narrow-minded thinking is what got this country attacked to begin with.
This guy is presenting his side of the story as proven facts. Man, if there was even a hint that the U.S. was in on the attack, don't you think the people who are out to destroy the President would be all over this?

What got us attacked was religious muslim zealotry. Hatred for all things western. That includes all the bleeding heart liberals who think if we just leave them alone everything will be okay. Israel's liberal faction tried that, and you see whats happening now.

I haven’t taken the course so I can't speak intelligently on what he actually teaches or what he simply presents as compelling ideas. I just assume that things are taken out of context when discussed.

We did not get attacked for simple hatred of all things Western. If that were the case, Wal-Mart and McDonalds would have been targets... not the quintessential representation of capitalist imposition onto cultures who have no part in the benefits, but reap the repercussions of the cultural and geographic exploitation.

We won't even get into this topic.... leave it for another thread.

However, I haven't looked too much into alt conspiracy theories about the twin towers. I've looked at a couple presentations about the pentagon attack and it actually is pretty intriguing. The only thing that wasn't speculated on is where the supposed missile came from... in that, I don't know how many times I've been present when missiles were "test fired". The shot off well out of visual range, and everyone cheered.... I never heard anyone say... "Hey, where'd that thing go anyway?". I digress.

People are bringing these ideas up (obviously ?!?). The problem is that when people do, others tell them that they're being unpatriotic, call them conspiracy theorists, criticize them, tell them that they shouldn't disrespect the families like that and then state that people would be talking about it if there was an ounce of evidence. (sound familiar?) American's have been trained and put in fear enough that all they know how to do is sit complacently and not question anything.

Kind of strange.... most countries used to admire America. We were the one's that broke away from colonization and imposition of beliefs. We were the rebels. Now we've simply become the hypocritical beast that we broke away from. Shit.... look who's got our back through everything. Am I the only one that finds this ironically funny?
