So, do I get this right? Operatives in the U.S. government want an excuse for war. They learn of the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in advance and allow it to happen. Then, thinking that crashed airplanes into the WTC, Pentagon, & White House will NOT be enough excuse for war, the U.S. secret operatives place thermite strategically into the WTC buildings to make sure they fall into a neat little pile of rubble after the attack.
Hey, Dr. Jones, I’ve got a nice beach front plot of land here in Iowa I would like to sell you just in case BYU doesn’t work out.
There is one factor that, for any reasonable American, makes this hypothesis EXTREMELY unlikely. Its the human factor. While we’d all agree that our government is riddled with dishonesty and greed, there are still a good number of moral, Christian people working for our country. Think about the sheer number of people it would take to pull off an operation of this magnitude — yet not ONE person has come forward in 5 years. Having the blood of almost 3000 people on your hands is not a burden most people could carry, certainly some of them would have come forward, even if it meant losing their own life for doing so.
Corruption certainly exists in our government, and a number of American lives have been lost because of it during the existance of this great nation. But, there is simply NO WAY the obscene number of lives lost in this attack could have been justified by any political adjenda.
To respond briefly to the scientific aspect — the jury is still out on Building 7, but Trade 1 & 2 fell victim to a flawed design. Concrete-on-truss combined with inadequate fireproofing makes for a building that cannot tolerate a large scale oil fire for very long.
Just a couple of things…
First, Gadianton lives.
Second, regardless of who did what on 9/11, it should be enough for us to make change in government when those in positions of power use these catalyzing events (either thrust upon us or arranged by some among our own people) to consolidate power in government. If we are not willing to be vigilent in preserving our liberty it does not matter if attacks on the American people are from without or from within.
3 Ne. 2: 11-12, 18
11 And it came to pass in the *thirteenth year there began to be wars and contentions throughout all the land; for the Gadianton robbers had become so numerous, and did slay so many of the people, and did lay waste so many cities, and did spread so much death and carnage throughout the land, that it became expedient that all the people, both the Nephites and the Lamanites, should take up arms against them.
12 Therefore, all the Lamanites who had become converted unto the Lord did unite with their brethren, the Nephites, and were compelled, for the safety of their lives and their women and their children, to take up arms against those Gadianton robbers, yea, and also to maintain their rights, and the privileges of their church and of their worship, and their freedom and their liberty.

18 And thus ended the fourteenth year. And in the *fifteenth year they did come forth against the people of Nephi; and because of the wickedness of the people of Nephi, and their many contentions and dissensions, the Gadianton robbers did gain many advantages over them.
Hel. 7: 4, 25
4 And seeing the people in a state of such awful wickedness, and those Gadianton robbers filling the judgment-seats—having usurped the power and authority of the land; laying aside the commandments of God, and not in the least aright before him; doing no justice unto the children of men;

25 Yea, wo be unto you because of that great abomination which has come among you; and ye have united yourselves unto it, yea, to that secret band which was established by Gadianton!
