Was 9/11 a conspiracy theory to justify American military campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq?
On 11th September 2001, 19 al-qaeda terrorists hijacked and crashed 4 passenger jets destroying the world trade centre towers and damaging the pentagon. The attack killed almost 3000 people and injured 25,000 people prompting the launch of the US led military campaign in Afghanistan and Iraq.
It's believed that the US government might have had the foreknowledge of the attack and even contributed to it, it's claimed that the US administration needed a pretext for wars in Afghanistan and Iraq or for curbing American civil liberties.
The North American Aerospace Defence Command (NORAD) deliberately ordered the the fighters to stand down in order to let the hijackers reach their targets without any interference, even though it had the capabilities to stop the attack. Was 9/ 11 a terrorist attack or it was a conspiracy theory for hidden agendas.
