    People still believe that some terrorist group called Al Qaeda hijacked two planes and flew them into the twin towers, destroying them? Why are we the only country that thinks this story holds water?
    It's a shame so many people died, and it's an even bigger shame that U.S. citizens haven't bothered to ask questions or investigate what really happened.
