I'm not talking the crazy but more like who helped finance it and stuff like that.

Hate to say it, but I'd bet 5 bucks most "adults" wouldn't know that kind of stuff.

Sad but probably true.

To us, 9/11 will always invoke memories and emotions that take us back to where we were on that day when we found out, but it will just be a part of history to our children. It'll be something that they maybe learn about in school or see a documentary about, but it won't have the same meaning that it does for our generation.

Yup. But hopefully the schools are teaching it still as it's an incredibly important part of our History. It's changed damn near everything worldwide since then.

Much like my folks living through the bombing of Pearl Harbor, course I was no where around, but certainly have been educated on the subject since. Both through schools and self interest. That changed everything from then on out too.

This.

The government has covered up Saudi involvement (likely training and financing) of the terrorists as well as the health effects to those first on scene who, for reasons one cannot readily fathom, nobody thought to have or distribute breathing masks when sorting through rubble heavily laden with asbestos.

Building 7 definitely is.

The Pentagon announcing 2.3 trillion missing the day before it gets hit is.

Still not necessarily a conspiracy. Most of Al Quaeda's funding came from the Saudis in the form of extortion payments. That does not mean the Saudi royal family support the mission. Obama gave Iran $160B. That doesn't mean he supports their throwing gays off buildings. The Romans funded the goths for a century so they wouldn't attack them. That does not mean they supported the eventual mission to overthrow Rome. Refrain from oversimplification.

Okay so maybe conspiracy isn't the proper word. Perhaps I should have asked, Is Are there still unanswered questions?

For example, my kids quickly asked why building seven fell but 3-6 stayed in tact.

FIFY. You aren't an English teacher are you? 03-razz

I was taught to use "Are" with plural subject (questions)

And "is" with singular subject ( question)

So, the twin towers were brought down by airplanes hijacked by terrorists, but there was a conspiracy to bring down building 7 because of inadequate accounting procedures?

This.

The training was actually done in Florida.
