"911 Was an Inside Job" is a slogan associated with the 9/11 Truth movement and other related conspiracy theories that accuse the United States government of orchestrating the September 11th, 2001 attacks as part of a large-scale false flag operation.
During the weeks after the September 11th, 2001 attacks, many conspiracy theories and conjectures regarding the identity of the perpetrators began flooding online discussion forums across the United States and overseas, which were fueled by the absence of a comprehensive official account of the events from the George W. Bush administration, as well as publication of news reports based on incomplete information and less-than-reliable sources in the media.
