Is 9/11 Still a Conspiracy?
In honor of 9/11, I showed my students a documentary of 9/11 with time to discuss. I was amazed how little they knew about the event. All of them knew what had happened but with only minor details. Which led me to ask the question. Is 9/11 still a controversy?

Does anyone still believe that our government did not tell us the whole story?

Saw an article today. Author was saying there was a huge generational divide among the millennials between those who remembered 911 and those who really didn't.

Did they not tell us the whole story? Almost certainly. Does that make it a conspiracy? no.

I was surprised that my son said they didn't talk about 9/11 at school yesterday.

(Though I understand at some point it has to become a discretionary discussion.)

I actually got very pissed at one of my kids yesterday. Kid #1 had a cooking accident (microwaved an egg) and kids #2 shouts "The Great egg explosion of 9/11".

I had to dress her down for making light of the event...

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

Fit's students are not millenials. Millenials were born between 1981 and 1997. Those at the end won't remember, but most will. I was born in 1979, borderline Gen X, and I was 22 with a job and my own apartment during 9/11 while about half of those in college were millenials. They remember it well.

You are correct.

My oldest student right now was born in 98 and he doesn't remember it so everyone I talked to only has been told about it.

One of the more interesting questions I got was how did OBL do that if he lived in a cave? LOL

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.
