Many conspiracy theories have emerged which contradict the mainstream account of the September 11, 2001 attacks. The most visible group of conspiracy theorists is the 9/11 truth movement, whose claims typically include suggestions that individuals in the government of the United States knew of the impending attacks and refused to act on that knowledge, or that the attacks were a false flag operation carried out with the intention of stirring up the passions and winning the allegiance of the American people in order to facilitate military spending, the restriction of civil liberties, and/or a program of aggressive and profitable foreign policy.
Most members of the 9/11 truth movement claim that the collapse of the World Trade Center was the result of a controlled demolition and/or that United Airlines Flight 93 was shot down. Some also contend that a commercial airliner did not crash into the Pentagon; this position is debated within the 9/11 Truth Movement, with many who believe that AA Flight 77 did crash there, but that it was allowed to crash via an effective stand down of the military.
Published reports by the National Institute of Standards and Technology do not support the controlled demolition hypothesis. U.S. officials, mainstream journalists and independent researchers generally accepted the conclusion that Al Qaeda is solely responsible for the attacks and the resulting destruction, and civil engineers generally accept the mainstream account that the impacts of jets at high speeds in combination with subsequent fires, rather than controlled demolition, led to the collapse of the Twin Towers.

Wikipedia has as much credibility on any controversial subject as a dogturd. It can be edited by idiots, trolls, and lobbyists, so it has zero credibility on any subject which might upset someone.
It wasn't even in NIST's analysis to investigate the possibility of a controlled demolition, so their dismissal is utterly irrelevant in the first place. NIST lied, and has as much credibility as asking the mafia to prove their innocence. It's been proven repeatedly, and in court cases to force NIST to release data, that NIST lied. They have denied every FOIA request, and always have to be forced by courts to release data, which shows that the authorities in NIST know that they were lying.
The line "Mainstream engineers, investigators, industry experts, and all informed sources dismiss it as a conspiracy theory" is actually total bullshit since it can be counted on just two hands the number of engineers and other so-called "experts" who put their name to supporting the official story. Most of the writers of the Popular Mechanics hit piece were just journalists, not "experts" at all. Trying the stupid line about tens of thousands of engineers doesn't wash either, since I bet you can't actually NAME them in any lists as publicly supporting the official story.
Don't bother with badly researched crap from Alex Jones, Loose Change, or Fetzer. No hologram planes - hardly anyone in the 9-11 Truth Movement abides by such bullshit. The 9-11 Truth Movement is not a bunch of wackos and nuts, started by the RELATIVES OF THE VICTIMS BECAUSE THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION REFUSED TO CARRY OUT A PROPER INDEPENDENT HONEST INVESTIGATION - and they have been lied to, and lied about, by the USA corporate media and USA government for 13 years! There has STILL not been a proper legal investigation of the 9-11 attacks even 13 years later.
For example, "Al Qaeda" doesn't actually exist and never did according to the BBC documentary "The Power of Nightmares". Two British members of Parliament publicly stated that the name "Al Qaeda" referred to a database of terrorists-for-hire used by Western intelligence agencies. The Bush Administration began applying the name "Al Qaeda" as a fictional super-villain organisation like something out of a James Bond movie because they needed a one-size-fits-all "super badguy" as an excuse for wars and the introduction of the Patriot Act. Several CIA officers have backed this up.
Read also about Operation Gladio, and the campaign of terror carried out by Western intelligence agencies in order to demonise leftwing groups in Europe. it got blown wide open and exposed years ago but it's STILL going on because in the Western media, the lies of officials and corporations are favoured over those of the truth.
James Corbett with his "open source" investigation of ISIS has also completely debunked the official lies from the Western governments about ISIS/ISIL/FSA/Al-Nusrah/Al-Qaeda. It's all the same thing, with the same players, and the same western governments working with their allies.
Ryan Dawson put together an extremely impressive and thoroughly researched documentary called "Wars By Deception". It's over nine hours long, but worth watching, as it blows the lid wide open about continuing terrorism funded by governments - and the history of state terrorism going back centuries.
The Pilots for 9-11 Truth got hold of the data from the Flight 77 FDR, and discovered it contradicted the official story. Flight 77 did not fly the flight path which the USA government claims.
The FBI was forced in court to admit in 2006 that none of the alleged cellphone calls or airphone calls from the planes actually connected, and none of them actually happened. There were no phone calls. The USA government officials had lied, repeatedly.
The USA government has a long history of disregard for the lives of USA citizens. If anyone here thinks that the nice friendly government wouldn't slaughter people, they're ignorant and idiotically in denial of reality.
I'm just saying it was all a setup. It was not meant to be offensive by all means...
I'm sorry for your loss.
