Should the 9/11 Memorial & Museum include information about so-called 9/11 'conspiracy theories?'

  • True justice for victims would expose the truth

    I don't know if the memorial/museum plans on including information regarding these popular "conspiracy theories" i.E. The truth about 9/11. But one would think that it would only be fair to the victims and their families to do so. While it may be easier to blame it on "the terrorists," the truth, as they say, will set you free.

  • Firstly they shouldn't be called 'conspiracies' as it already implies a lack of basic truth. Secondly sometimes it is hard to swallow the truth.

    It is a factual truth that the American government armed Al Qaeda and trained them with representatives of the CIA, years before the 9/11 event, whether the actual event was orchestrated by terrorists or the government is another issue, but the government should take responsibility for increasing the threat and capabilities of this terrorist organisation, and certainly for giving a name to this terrorist organisation to unite fanatics under. The American government should at least take partial responsibility for the events that unfolded on 9/11, this is why I feel they should display information on other theories surrounding the event in this museum rather than just the story fed to the majority of the populace by the mainstream and corporate media. A balanced account of the incident should be given - The same goes for the 7/7 bombings in London, what happened to investigative journalism, did that die alongside both these incidents? What happened to the truth? Let us not forget 'The Power Of Nightmares' and the basic principles of fear that the US government, mainly the Neo-Conservatives have spread in the same way extreme Islamist groups have done over the past 60 years.

  • It is a part of the event, like it or not

    I see no reason not to include the theories, regardless of my personal stance on the validity of the claims. So long as the museum curators (or whomever puts museums together) puts the information/exhibit in another room where it is kind of off to the side, and able to be skipped over by people who are not interested, I would say go for it.

  • Of course it shouldn't.

    I'm pretty sure the last thing the victims families want to hear, is theories, distorted, lied, mislead, misrepresented and some outright saying their family doesn't exist, or isn't dead.
    You would have to be extremely stupid and evil to want to get these lies in the 9/11 memorial museum. The conspiracy theories surrounding 9/11 do not hold up when you apply reality to them.
    The twoofer will do everything they can to get their fantasy spread.
    The last thing we all want is people lying about dead family members, and who really is responsible for 9/11.

  • Museums should include facts.

    Not conspiracy theory nuttiness. It does not help victims or their families to publish nonsensical conspiracy theories that have no credible evidence to support them. In fact, it rather cheapens their pain to use the memorial to promote a fringe ideology that exists in the minds of individuals who are illogically convinced the government is some massive evil entity out to get everyone.
