Or possibly - just possibly - such a person is simply telling the
honest truth as that person sees it, either accounting for or not
accounting for any data you may have which, in your opinion, disproves
such a case beyond reasonable doubt.

For instance: I was responding to the fact that it was thought up 20
years previously, and noting that that alone did not necessarily mean
it was still being thought of.  I was unaware of any war games within
a year of the attack which actually tried to anticipate jets
deliberately being rammed into buildings.  (And I still am unaware,
unless someone cites references to said war games.)
