911 Conspiracy Theory Nonsense

Recently on the Bellarmine Report Blog there is a bit of a conspiracy theory posting regarding the second plane hitting the World Trade Center on 9/11/2001.  The following video is posted there:

Now, let's look at some OTHER views of the second plane hitting the WTC...



And here's a collection of many different views of the second plane hitting the WTC.  It's ludicrous to think that the government got to all these different people, news crews and private citizens!

As for the "nose through" conspiracy theory, one of at least two explanations are quite tenable.
1) The nose entered between floors and made it through before exploding out the other side.
2) The sheer force of the "nose cone" hitting projected through with debris in relatively the same shape.

There's just WAY too many shots of the second plane hitting!  There weren't too many of the first plane hitting, but by the time the second plane hit - news crews and dozens of others with home video cameras were trained on the Twin Towers.  It's pure craziness to think this was all a conspiracy concocted by the US government.
