Why Serious Questions Still Remain Five Years After the Attack

Questions about 9/11 are getting big and ugly in the public imagination for a number of very good reasons.
Among the most serious of these are:
An enormous amount of physical evidence was removed illegally from ground zero, the Pentagon, and Shanksville, PA in the days and weeks following the attacks. This removal was unprecedented in American history.
The theory about what happened on 9/11 was chosen first; then the evidence (out of what was left) was selected to fit that theory.
For this reason, a great deal of evidence (out of what was left) was ignored, distorted, or misinterpreted.
To this day, the bulk of evidence held by the government is classified as secret and has not been released to the public.
Not one person from NIST, FEMA, or the 9/11 Commission has agreed to debate the official theory in public.
None of the above is reasonable and all of it constitutes terrible science. Properly done, a scientific theory is drawn from the evidence, and not the other way around.
Anyone who points these problems out is called as a “kook” or a “nut-case.” This sort of argument (ad hominem) is a sure sign of a weak position.
Some of the people who point these problems out are actually threatened with the loss of their jobs or otherwise intimidated. This is a serious violation of their First Amendment rights to free speech, and a wickedly ironic refutation of the notion that the terrorists hate us “because we are free.”
The questions outlined above (except for the first one) could be very quickly and easily answered by simply:
-Releasing to the public all of the 9/11 evidence held in secret by various branches of the government.
-Responsibly debating the official theory in public.
-Opening a new investigation into 9/11 if that proves to be necessary or if the public wants one.
That these obvious remedies are consistently and repeatedly avoided by the US government makes many Americans wonder if there is not something being hidden. After all, if the truth is on your side, you will want everyone to know the facts, and you will not be afraid to debate your position in public.
