Dear Dr. Pipes,
I am a huge fan of yours.... had the wonderful opportunity of seeing you a few years ago at a synagogue in Miami, on a panel with Mona Charen and John Poderhertz. I love David Horowitz, and Pamela Gellar! I am a committed Zionist, and a proud, conservative American.
Not to long after the 9/11 Commission Report, I remember reading that almost 1/3 of all Americans believed something wasn't "kosher". I was shocked and saddened that so Americans could believe their government had something to do with it....or the Mossad!!
Recently though, having studied some 9/11 conspiracy theory, even I have become convinced that we have not been told the complete truth. It is specifically the collapse of Bldg 7 that concerns me and is my focus. That building was detonated!!
Please Dr.Pipes, tell me that I have succumbed to the kool aid in our water. Please disabuse me of this notion .....if you can.

Daniel Pipes replies:
I have not studied Building 7, so I cannot reply to your specific question.
I have not looked at this because I reject the very concert that 9/11 was an inside job. Don't we have Bin Laden himself boasting about the attack? Do you really think that the US government could engage in such an atrocity?
I urge you to focus on other topics than this one.
