"Skeptics" or Dupes? - Skeptic Magazine Not So Skeptical on 9/11 Lies

Skeptic Magazine has come out with a half-assed response to the 9/11 Truth Movement. They cite Popular Mechanics' theories about the attacks, and not much else in their 9/11 Conspiracy Theories, the 9/11 Truth Movement in Perspective.

Someone should have told them that Professor David Ray Griffin has demolished the Popular Mechanics diatribe in his Debunking 9/11 Debunking: An Answer to Popular Mechanics and Other Defenders of the Official Conspiracy Theory.

Let's forego all of that -- pretend it never happened -- and get to the accusations of the article.

Someone Should Have Told John Doraemi

That this Skeptic Magazine article is from last year, well before DRG's book.

Skepter Dupes

Almost all of those so-called "skeptics" wouldn't know a True Skeptic if s/he kicked them in the ass.

They are (almost) all Skepters. And barely even that.

Senior 9/11 Bureau Chief, Analyst, Correspondent, Forensic 9/11ologist


9/11 — GET rEVENge! (in a peaceful manner, of course)

Mea Culpa.

Apparently the date of publication on the Skeptic article does precede the Debunking 911 Debunking book.

If that's the only criticism of my lengthy and detailed article, I guess I'm doing all right.

So -- by implication -- if Phil Mole and Co. would have had the benefit of the Griffin book, they would not have written this atrocious hit piece?

The Popular Mechanics nonsense was under attack for a long time before the release of the Griffin Debunking 9/11 Debunking book.

Immediately upon publication of their first article, rebuttals appeared, most notably Jim Hoffman's:

Popular Mechanics Attacks its '9/11 Lies' Straw Man

Updated versions appeared in 2005 (more than a year and a half before the Skeptic article):

Popular Mechanics' Deceptive Smear
Against 9/11 Truth

David Ray Griffin directly addressed Popular Mechanics several times:

9/11 and the American Empire
by David Ray Griffin

The Destruction of the World Trade Center:
Why the Official Account Cannot Be True

Of special interest here is a link between Hearst Corporation CEO Victor F. Ganzi and the one and only C.I.A.:

More 2005 work in response to the Popular Mechanics lies:

Alex Jones Responds To Ben Chertoff, Popular Mechanics 9/11 Debunking Campaign

Griffin's August 2006 CBC News interview should have been a tip off to Skeptic Rag as well:

"Well, [Popular Mechanics' Book] is one of the most disgraceful publications that has ever appeared, and as I’ve said in my new book, the Popular Mechanics owes the American public for putting this out – it is simply a disgrace."

So I'm going to go ahead and vote myself a "9", unless you have some other big hammer to drop...
