Mike Friend September 11, 2001, a day that will live infamy! Or should it really be: September 11, 2001 a day that will live in infamy? This is a question that any citizen should ask himself or herself if they take the time to review the video footage of that day . Since that infamous day in 2001, there have been many questions about what really happened and whether or not the U .S.

One of the first things that conspiracy theorists cite is the collapse of the World Trade Centers and what they believe really happened to them . Conspiracy theorists believe the World Trade Centers were brought down by controlled demolitions . By examining video of the collapses of both buildings, theorists point out that what appears to be puffs of smoke can be seen coming out of windows as the buildings collapse . These visible puffs of smoke coming out of the building are sometimes 20 or 30 stories below where the huge cloud of falling debris is at according to theorists . Theorists say the puffs of smoke are explosions being set off inside the building meant to destroy the inner core so that the building will fall right down on itself . In addition to the close examination of video footage of the World Trade Center collapse,
