9-11 Research Does Not Endorse No-Jetliner Theories
Starting in early 2002, the idea that the Pentagon was attacked by some means other than a jetliner began to receive aggressive promotion by the Hunt the Boeing website and a series of expertly marketed books by Theirry Meyssan.
In late 2003, the idea that the Twin Towers were attacked by flying objects other than jetliners was being test-marketed, and in 2004 it received effective promotion in the form of the expertly produced film In Plane Site.
In late 2004, an article in American Free Press floated the idea that the crash of Flight 93 in Pennsylvania was faked, with the actual Flight 93 being disposed of by some other means.
All of these ideas are unified by a theme: denying that the jetliners taken over on 9/11/01 crashed where were reported. Thus they have earned the name 'no-jetliners' or 'no-planes' theories. A number of other theories dovetail with the no-jetliners theories, such as the Bumble Planes theory and the faked phone calls theory.
9-11 Research does not endorse any of the no-jetliners theories or their associated theories such as Bumble Planes. We have not found any compelling evidence to support these theories, and have found abundant evidence contradicting them. In fact, we have done a great deal of work to debunk these theories, and think that, while they are promoted by many well-meaning people, they were probably created as part of an intentional disinformation strategy.
The 9-11 Research essays section has a number of articles debunking no-jetliners claims. The Information Warfare section of 911Review.com contains detailed analysis of many of the no-jetliners claims.
Unfortunately, despite our work to critically review the no-jetliners theories, we have received many angry e-mails by readers assuming that we deny the crashes of the jetliners. Perhaps some people mistake our detailed objective analysis of Pentagon attack theories on pages such as this one as promotion of those theories. However, it is more likely that such complaints simply reflect a tendency to assume that 9-11 Research, which clearly rejects the official account of the attack, rejects it for the same reasons as the high-profile productions like Thierry Meyssan's books, the 9/11 Pentagon Strike flash animation, and the films In Plane Site and Loose Change.
