The terrorist network founded by Osama bin Laden became known worldwide in 2001 with the September 11 attacks. However, the 9/11 Truth Movement challenges the conventional narrative, suggesting that corrupt elements within the US government were responsible for planning and executing the attacks (MIHOP thesis) or at least had foreknowledge and did nothing to prevent them (LIHOP thesis). According to this perspective, Al-Qaeda is considered merely an accomplice or scapegoat. Supporters of the movement point to perceived inconsistencies in the official version, such as the omission of witnesses who reported hearing explosions or the alleged discovery of nanothermite in the rubble, indicating a controlled demolition. There is also speculation that Al-Qaeda was specifically trained by the CIA for false flag attacks.
