Groupthink occurs when people avoid individually testing, analyzing, and evaluating facts in order to avoid upsetting the consensus of a group.

In effect a bracketing occurs whereby some topics are okay to discuss while others are closed off – often without the group being consciously aware of it.

Those who violate the unspoken rules often find themselves being ostracized, alienated and ultimately expelled from the group.

9/11 is a good example of groupthink on the part of the media and the public.

For example, eyewitness accounts and media reports from New York reported multiple instances of bombs going off. (See videos below.)

Yet according to the NIST report, it was fire from jet fuel that brought down the World Trade Center Towers on September 11th, 2001.

When NIST officials were specifically asked if they considered the possibility of bombs being planted in the building, they categorically stated there weren’t any bombs so why should they look for signs of them!

Once the ‘official version’ of what happened was issued, the mainstream media merely repeated it even though many journalists knew that the government’s version did not match up to their own first hand experiences. But they, like the public, found it less risky to make their experiences conform to the government’s version of events than to challenge them.

A perfect example of groupthink in action.

Below is David Chandler’s analysis. Watch for the huge sections of the building being ejected – some at over 70 miles an hour. Notice the squibs going off in waves below the visible explosions. Yet NIST and a large portion of the American public refuses to see what’s right in front of their eyes.
