Was 9/11 a conspiracy?

I think it was, because the four targets were the north tower, the pentagon, the south tower and the white house. Of the four, I would definitely have gone for the white house first, or instead of the pentagon, but the white house was the last target, and so was crashed in a field in Shanksville. How would this have happened, if not by some forewarning given to Osama Bin Laden by the US government?

Even if someone in the US government had been helping Al-Qaeda, how could they possibly have kept it such a secret afterwards?

The US government is able to keep secrets really well. For example, Area 51, or the assassination of JFK.

The White House is by far the smallest target and is quite difficult to see from the air.

And President Bush wasn't there anyway.

Um, neither of those things is a "secret." We all know that Area 51 has been (and likely still is) a site where classified research is done. And there's ample forensic evidence that LHO killed JFK. The only thing that's less clear is whether he had help from anyone else.

9/11 absolutely was a conspiracy. It was a conspiracy between 19 (almost 20) mostly Middle Eastern hijackers, the organization to which they belonged, and its leaders who organized the attack.

The only forensic evIdence about Oswald was the paraffin test which proved he handled a gun, however also proved he did not shoot a rifle that day. That's literally the only forensic evidence in the entire case

There was no conspiracy. 911 truthers are perfect examples of the complete illogical strain of Libertarianism in the US and greater world. Total nutjobs.

The shooting has been reconstructed and analyzed with today's computers to calculate trajectories, etc. There's not much doubt left about a lone shooter.

Well, no, they have his hand prints and finger prints in the book depository next to the window he fired from. They have photographs of boxes of books stacked near the window apparently to shield Oswald from prying eyes, a stack of books for him to sit on while aiming and a stack of books to steady his aim with his prints on them. The orientation of the palm print indicates that he was facing toward the window. They have his rifle and pictures of him holding the same rifle. They have the evidence that he bought the rifle and had it shipped to himself. They found that rifle on the sixth floor of the book depository among the boxes of books after the shooting. They have bullets that tie the rifle to the shooting. They have three brass casings where Oswald fired the gun in the book depository that were proved to have been fired by the rifle. Oswald's palm print was found on the rifle. Tests when Oswald was arrested showed that he had chemical deposits on his hands consistent with him having fired a gun recently.

Tests of the rifle show that it was accurate enough to hit the intended target and could be fired at the rate of speed indicated by auditory recordings.
