The 9/11 terror attacks in the US were organised by US intelligence agencies

The 9/11 terror attacks in the US were in fact organised by US intelligence agencies.

Disproof

This is a conspiracy theory, presented without any evidence-

It relays a recurring narrative that suggests US government involvement in the 9/11 attacks; an unfounded claim that has been extensively refuted. In this case, baseless speculation adds a new layer to the conspiracy, with claims that US authorities may have somehow 'dealt' with people who intended to expose evidence of such involvement.
