Consequently, the attack destroyed the World Trade Center buildings from with people profited from insurance of the buildings. Primarily, before the attack took place some fishy business were carried out within the insurance firms and stock markets with traders profiting from the tragedy. Consequently, similarly, it is widely argued that the planes did not bring down the buildings but bombs did.

Thirdly, evidence suggests that the hijacker’s passports survived the attack indicating that there was a cover-up.
