From the moment the first plane hit one of the twin towers on the morning of 11 September 2001, the conspiracy machine jumped into high gear.
I admit that I was even sucked into to a couple of those whacked out ideas about our own government attacking us to create the mood to go to war. Hey! It’s been done before, right?
