Are you looking for 10 best 9/11 documentaries? For many Americans, the events of September 11, 2001 was something that no one could have ever seen coming. It left a nation in shock and the city of New York devastated. But was the attack on the Twin Towers and the hijacked planes something that our government actually did see coming? Were there signs that something this big, this painful, and devastating could actually happen?

Here are the ten best 9/11 documentaries that try to get to the bottom of one of the most shocking events in US history.

  1. "Fahrenheit 9/11"- This is a controversial film by Michael Moore that looks at the US government, particularly George W Bush, in the aftermath of 9/11.
  2. "In Plane Site"- This is a documentary movie that looks into what happened in 9/11.
  3. "No End in Sight"- This is a movie that looks into the Bush Administration in the aftermath of 9/11.
  4. "102 Minutes that Changed America"- Produced by the History Channel, this is the seventh anniversary documentary of the events of 9/11, based on witness and archive footage.
  5. "Aftermath: Unanswered Questions from 9/11"- Created by network GNN, nine people are asked eleven questions that spark wonderment in the events of the 9/11.
  6. "In Their Own Words: The Untold Stories of the 9/11 Families" – This is a sequel to "Press for Truth" that explores the unanswered and unheard questions from the families of the 9/11 victims.
  7. "National Security Alert" - This is an independent movie that looks at the plane that 'supposedly' hit the Pentagon.
  8. "The 9/11 Conspiracies: Fact or Fiction" – Produced by Popular Mechanics and NBC, this documentary tries to separate the fact from the fiction of 9/11.
  9. "Zero: An Investigation into 9/11" – Made by an Italian film company, this documentary explores how the truth that we know may not be the truth about 9/11.
  10. "War & Globalization: The Truth Behind 9/11"- This is a lecture given by Michel Chossudovsky that explores the reasons behind 9/11 as not terroristic, but militaristic and made by the Bush Administration.

Most, if not all, of these documentaries can be found on Amazon for purchase or may be available for viewing online. While some viewers may not agree with the theories that are presented in these documentaries, the point is to learn about the different views and different opinions that each side has, opening up a dialog about what we witnessed and what has come to pass since then. It is important that we all try to understand the reasons behind the act, though sometimes, that may be hard to achieve.

These films are presented as a means to help understand the events of September 11th, with the hope of combining viewpoints from each side in order to get a semblance of the tragedy.
