9/11 CONSPIRACY THEORIES:
First, a very prolonged and continuous video of the attack:
Since the September 11 attacks, a variety of conspiracy theories regarding the 9/11 attacks have been put forward in Web sites, books, and films. Many groups and individuals advocating 9/11 conspiracy theories identify as part of the 9/11 Truth Movement.
Unlike conspiracy theories about the death of Princess Diana, 9/11 conspiracy theories did not emerge immediately after the event. Indeed, most professional conspiracy theorists in the United States appeared to be as shocked as the rest of the population.
The first theories that emerged focused primarily on various anomalies in the publicly available evidence, and proponents later developed more specific theories about an alleged plot.
9/11 conspiracy theories allege that the September 11 attacks in 2001 were either intentionally allowed to happen or were a false flag operation orchestrated by elements within the United States government.
The most prominent claim is that the collapse of the World Trade Center and 7 World Trade Center were the result of a controlled demolition rather than structural weakening due to fire.
Another prominent claim is that the Pentagon was hit by a missile launched by elements from inside the U.S. government or that a commercial airliner was allowed to do so via an effective stand down of the American military.
The common prescribed motives are the use of the attacks to justify the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq, to facilitate increased military spending, and to restrict domestic civil liberties.
Published reports and articles by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology, Popular Mechanics and mainstream media have rejected the 9/11 conspiracy theories.
Civil engineers state that the impacts of jet aircraft at high speeds in combination with subsequent fires, rather than controlled demolition, led to the collapse of the Twin Towers and WTC 7.

BCC documentary - "The Conspiracy Files: 911":
An interesting documentary dedicated to debunking the conspiracy theories surrounding the 9/11 attacks on New-York and Washington DC. Exposes just how ludicrous these myths are, but unfortunately, true to the BBC's tradition of Political correctness and leftist bias, fails to connect the dots between their views and their Political affiliation. Ranging from the outright insane "inside job" theory of the so called "9/11 Truth movement" (talk about the height of irony), to the preposterous and racist anti-Jewish conspiracies, this charade has all the characteristics of a mental disease. I hope you enjoy this, and strongly advise you to also take a look at the desperate follow ups by this crazy bunch to get a better idea of what we're dealing here with.
Democracy Now - Popular Mechanics vs. Loose Change:
Pay close attention to Jason Bermas when he gets confronted with facts or has his poor investigative skills shredded. Like any child his first reaction is to call the men liars. No debate, no "I didn't know that" banter. Just childish name calling like any two year old caught with his hand in the cookie jar.
1,000 architects and engineers call for new 9/11 investigation?:
This is a common tactic employed by every denialist group.
There are numerous problems with this approach:
-Appeal to Authority - The truth is not a democracy, nor a popularity contest
-Apeal to False Authority - Often these lists contain names of those who only superficially seem to be qualified experts in a related field when they're not qualified
-Length of the list - Often the numbers of signitaries on the lists superficially seems high when in comparison to all qualified experts in the world, equals well under 1% "Debunking the Oregon Petition Project" By Michael Ashcroft 700 “Scientists” Doubt Evolution National Center for Science Education's Project Steve
