1010 WINS' 9/11 Series: 'Truthers' Still Contend U.S. Government Was Complicit In Attacks

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Ten years after Sept. 11, 2001, some conspiracy theorists still subscribe to a more sinister version of the attacks on the World Trade Center.

Luke Redowski, a 24-year-old from Bensonhurst, is among those who believes and argues the United States government and U.S. military were complicit in the attacks.

"The people who are supposed to protect us knowingly knew about this. There were many warnings," Redowski, a member of the group "We Are Change," told 1010 WINS' John Montone.

Largely ignored by the mainstream media, the 9/11 "truthers" have used social networking sites and YouTube to disseminate their views.

Redowski claims the government has evidence that bombs placed in the World Trade Center brought the towers down.

"On 9/11, on that horrible day, we have over an hour, four airplanes off course and the best military, the best air defense stood down. And the people who were accountable were not demoted, were not fired, but they were promoted," he said.

Redowski said a janitor in the North Tower, who helped rescue people believes bombs placed inside the World Trade Center brought the towers down.

"There's William Rodriguez -- a national hero -- who heard a huge explosion in the sub-cellar basements and then heard the plane hit," he said.

Though the so-called "truthers" have a significant following, former President Bill Clinton has referred to them as "idiots."
