Robert Parry/Consortium.com attack on 9/11 truth movement
America's Decoupling from Reality By Robert Parry
September 15, 2010
Robert Parry is a journalist whose work I have been very impressed by. I even agree with the overall premise of his latest article: that the United States has lost touch with reality. However, he spends several paragraphs denouncing the 9/11 truth movement as a desperate leftist effort. I find his blinders on this one subject disappointing, but it does not devalue his important work.
"...these activists, who became known as '9/11 truthers,' threw out all the evidence of al-Qaeda’s involvement... cherry-picked a few supposed 'anomalies'... recycled many of the Right’s sophistry techniques... Some supporters of the “inside-job” theory may have simply been destabilized by all the years of right-wing disinformation. Reality and real evidence may have lost all currency, replaced by a deep and understandable distrust of the nation's leaders and the news media."
