And who possibly could've made money off of 9/11? The military industry, is one. This rules out aliens, mole people, and possible flying turtles of course.
Oh, wikipedia outlined Loose Change. Here's their explanation of motives for pulling a 9/11:
Heh, I just don't think the money thing is a great motive considering the risk/reward thing. All the people who hoped to gain any money from this are already wealthy people. Why would these people risk doing something like this to make a bit more cash, especially when the price for getting caught would surely be death for treason and the HUGE chance that they would be caught (Considering the amount of people it would take to pull this off). Granted, greed can make people do stupid things, but this would be far beyond stupid.
Then you've got to take into account all the other lose ends like getting Bin Laden to go along with it and what-not.
When you compare the above scenario to the one in which a douchebag terrorist organization that has the motives, money, people, and will to attack important American structures it just seals the deal as far as I'm concerned. There's no rational reason for government officals to do these things.
Is it possible that the government is hiding information to possibly save face or protect it's interests? Absolutely. Is our government responsible for the 9/11 attacks? I can say with confidence that they weren't. Quite frankly, it's stupid to think otherwise.
