It was not an inside job because there is no motivation for anyone in the government to commit such an act. Also, the time and work effort needed to do something like that don't seem likely at all, especially for someone on the inside. Plus, the terrorist organization that really did 9/11 took responsibility for it, and would have no reason to make an enemy out of America. They admitted to being responsible for 9/11 because they did it and wanted to cause terror, but they wouldn't have if they weren't truly responsible for it. Therefore, it could not have been an inside job.

Though my opponent did not respond to the previous round, I would still like to point out some things showing that 9/11 could not have been an inside job. Mainly, if the government wanted a war, or to invade somewhere, then they could have started that in ways that would not involve such massive amounts of lost American lives. The government stands to gain nothing from murdering hundreds of its own people. Also, information is leaked from the government fairly often, and the government is aware of that fact. The American government would never be able to completely cover up the fact that they were responsible for 9/11, as evidenced by the fact that we are even having this debate. If 9/11 was an inside job, and that information got to the public (which is a large possibility), then the government would have a full-scale revolt on their hands. They would never risk that information getting out, and if they needed an act of "terrorism" they could have done it in much more subtle ways than 9/11. Still, that is besides the point. 9/11 was not orchestrated by the government. Whatever small gains they could make by that act of terrorism, there are many other less violent ways to get those same small gains. They would have no motive for killing all those people, or organizing the 9/11 attack. The statement that 9/11 was an inside job is just too improbable and ridiculous to be believable.

It seems as if my opponent has decided to end the debate without any arguments. Still, I would like to reaffirm that 9/11 cannot have been an inside job because the government would never kill so many of its own people. No matter the gain, the price far outweighs it. Therefore, it is ridiculous to assume that 9/11 was an inside job.

4 points to Con (Conduct and Arguments). Reasons for voting decision: Ff

[*Reason for non-removal*] Pro forfeited every round besides the acceptance round and presented no arguments. We don't moderate these "fully forfeited" debates except in exceptional circumstances like voters voting the side that did the forfeiting.

I definitely agree with anime-arguments on this.

Actually, there is a motive for the government to do such an act. For instance, after 9/11,it would lead to a war against terrorism in which the citizens would fund and support because they were told it was the terrorists who had committed the attack on 9/11. Another is that Iraq was the first to convert the petrodollar system,going from U.S. dollars into Euros. If any other country were to follow them, it would have lead o the financial decline in the U.S. After 9/11, the war in Iraq, Iraq converted back into U.S. dollars.

Reasons for voting decision: Con had better conduct, because Pro forfeited 2 rounds, while Con didn't forfeit any rounds. Pro and Con tie for spelling and grammar, because I was able to read both Pro's and Con's statements with ease - Pro only said "You gonna lose this debate bruh", which is easy to understand, and I read Pro's statements with ease. Con actually made arguments, which cannot be said for Pro, so Con wins for convincing arguments. Neither Pro nor Con used any sources, so Pro and Con tie for reliable sources.
