9/11 theories: What is the probability of a controlled demolition?

I would like to engage anyone who believes that 9/11 was an "inside job" in a truly free thinking debate. We will debate the collapse of WTC 7 - often cited as the "smoking gun" by the Truther movement.

Edward Snowden showed us what was by law our right to know. Revealing the secrets that the government has been breaking laws to provide more security which makes little sense to me because wouldn't that statement cancel out? security is trust and trust should be private as the individual allows it (as an example "you tell your friend a secret, that secret should be private, and your friend keeps it a secret, but a criminal (this example of a criminal personifying the government is the only examp...

And, as usual, the reasons and context for both positions and...

I believe that vampires are real because if vampires weren't real at one point how would they even get the idea.

I don't care what other people think i care about what me my self and I think....
