Popular Mechanics Editors vs. the Loose Screws at Loose Change.

Start here.

UPDATE: Okay, it looks like I've got a few readers who like them a Kool-Aid cocktail every now and then. So, one question: if the damage at the Pentagon and the crash site/"crash site" in Pennsylvania weren't caused by planes, then what happened to the two missing planes that day that didn't hit the WTC?

About Dr. Griffin:

From Publishers Weekly, Starred Review. An emeritus professor of theology with no previous interest in conspiracy theories, Griffin has dedicated himself since 2003 to the "9/11 truth" movement, a group committed to "exposing the falsity of the official theory about 9/11," and this book is a thorough, highly detailed attempt to do just that.

Emeritus professor of theology? Deer Lord.

"Emeritus professor of theology? Deer Lord."

Also, check out the Senior Military, Intelligence, Law Enforcement, Government Officials, Professors, 9-11 Survivors and Family Members who have expressed significant criticism of the 9-11 Commission Report and/or allege government complicity in 9-11 found here:

Yes, that's nice, Terry. Now, if they can offer a plausible, coherent explaination of the events that began on 11 Sep 2001 that doesn't involve pre-placed demolition charges, I'm willing to take a look.

What? I have to accept pre-placed demolition charges? do you realized how freakin' hard that would be to pull off *without* someone, anyone, noticing?

And in case you haven't been paying attetion, let me point one more thing out to you. This administration hasn't been able to keep any state secrets...well, secret. From NSA intercept program, the SWIFT program, to the most recent leak of plans to undermine the Iranian government, this administration has leaked like a leaky sieve.

And now you would like me to believe that they also have pulled off the conspiracy of a lifetime??

To coin a phrase, oh, puuuuuuullllllleeeeeeeeeeezzzzzeeeeeeeeee.

Seriously, is it even worth the time to debate what happened on 9/11 with Truthers, who, a couple decades ago, would have, at the least, been dismissed as complete cranks, if not stuck in mental institutions?

As for the planes, one of them was Lost.

I had a convo with the husband of a family friend who was working at the Pentagon that day, other side of the building, E Ring, regarding the camera footage. Security cameras there, like most places, are not set up with to capture that kind of speed. They are designed to capture vehicles through the gates, so the frame speed is not real high. To store that high a frame rate would require enormous storage.

Two questions:

1. How does the theory explain Flight 93?

2. How come the US Government can keep this secret and NOTHING ELSE?

Note the '666" in the youtube link. . .
At least we know who is behind this crap. Besides the Left, that is.

Oh, and those nutters have an explanation for the missing planes and passengers--the people have been given new identities and are still alive. Remember the Tom Flocco story of Barbara Olson(Ann Coulter's best friend, wife of Bush lawyer, Ted, who helped him "steal" Florida, killed on Flight 77) being arrested on the Polish/Austrian border in 2005? Shocking because Poland and Austria share no border? And he misspelled her name. And said she was carrying millions in counterfeit Italian "lyra". She was carrying a Vatican passport, of course--never miss a chance to bash Catholics. I guess the Bush pals were given new IDs. The others? Not so lucky. The planes? Still on the NTSB tail number list. Probably in one of those junkyards in Arizona. Desert Cat should go take a look. Or start scratching paint off tail numbers to look for a re-paint. Why should the loony Left break all the "good" stories? Like who's gay.

So is Ted Olson in on the conspiracy? Does he get to have secret liaisons with his wife, or is he expected simply to cope for the good of the cause?

Posted by: Attila Girl at June 4, 2007 09:27 PM

I work for the government and have been in the military for the last 20 years.

I can debunk the 9/11 conspiracy with one concept.

We're not that good. Seriously, I wish we were. But we are simply not that good. No one is.

Posted by: redleg at June 5, 2007 07:38 AM

Yup. No one is.

About Joy W. McCann: I've been interviewed for Le Monde and mentioned on Fox News. I once did a segment for CNN on "Women and Guns," and this blog is periodically featured on the New York Times' blog list. My writing here has been quoted in California Lawyer. I've appeared on The Glenn and Helen Show. Oh—and Tammy Bruce once bought me breakfast.
My writing has appeared in
The Noise, Handguns, Sports Afield, The American Spectator, and (it's a long story) L.A. Parent. This is my main blog, though I'm also an alumnus of Dean's World, and I help out on the weekends at Right Wing News.
My political philosophy is quite simple: I'm a classical liberal. In our Orwellian times, that makes me a conservative, though one of a decidedly libertarian bent.
