There is a difference between the conspiracy to frame Iraq for terrorism, and conspiracy about 911 controlled demolitions. The former is readily seen for what it is by anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of the Middle East, Islam and islamist terrorism. It was a blatant abuse of the West's, specifically the US', ignorance of these things - and it worked like a charm. People still believe Saddam Hussein and Bin laden were ::cough:: best pals. 911 is tinfoil hat territory. Rather than repeat what I can't be bothered reiterating, you can read this thread. The core point where conspiracy theory collapses is the assumption that any government can be competent enough to keep things that massive a secret. Its loony-toon land.
