It’s been over eighteen years since the deadliest terror attack of modern times in September 2001. Since then the “Truthers” who disputed the official version of events have faded into yesterday’s news.
The most popular conspiracy theory of the time was the towers were brought down by controlled demolitions. According to this theory, since jet fuel can’t melt steel beams, the buildings must have been wired to blow. But a Popular Mechanics article showed that while jet fuel can’t melt steel beams, its 500-degree heat can severely weaken them.
Other theories included that Flight 93 was shot down and the US let the attacks happen.
The biggest argument against all of these is the same as claims we never went to the moon — the sheer scale of that kind of cover-up is impossible. For the 9/11 attacks to be a conspiracy, thousands of people would have had to work together without a single one of them making a mistake or telling someone about it.
But could there have been a reason for the “terrorists” to take down the Twin Towers other than hatred for America? Joe Rogan, the former host of Fear Factor and current ringside commentator for UFC fights, is known to have some out there conspiracy theories about events. Now normally we wouldn’t pass on these kinds of things, but this theory is rooted in some facts and it is very compelling.
This 9/11 conspiracy theory involves then Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. Who announced just days before 9/11 that the GAO was missing trillions of dollars in the Defense Department coffers.
Watch the video as Joe Rogan explores an interesting and admittedly unproven theory about Donald Rumsfeld and the 9/11 attacks.
