9/11 Denial

9/11 Comedy ( a real world scenario)

Sometimes I'm stunned by how quickly a scientifically-trained person jumps off the ship of reason when it comes to 9/11/01.

Proving The 9/11 Conspiracists Wrong
by John Hawkins
Original trash here.

According to a poll by Rasmussen, 22% of all Americans and 35% of all Democrats believe that George Bush knew about the 9/11 attacks in advance.

Perhaps that's because it's not at all unusual to hear bizarre theories about 9/11. If you spend a lot of time on the internet, you'll hear everything from Bush knew about 9/11 and let it happen, to Bush was behind 9/11, the Mossad was behind 9/11, the Pentagon was hit by a truck bomb, the Pentagon was hit by a missile, the World Trade Center was taken down by explosives, WTC 7 was taken down by explosives, mini-nukes were used on the WTC, United Airlines Flight 93 was shot down by a missile, United Airlines Flight 93 was never shot down at all, etc., etc., etc.. In other words, any and every crackpot theory that you could come up with in your wildest nightmare has probably been floated by some lunatic or attention seeker on the Internet.

So why have these conspiracy theories managed to spread? In large part because most serious commentators usually think it's beneath them to actually take the time to respond to the conspiracy theorists. The problem with that is that the nuts end up dominating the conversation by default because the sane, knowledgeable people tend to opt out of the conversation.

The DKos Dust Up: A Study in 9/11 Denial

In case anyone is wondering how a room full of otherwise sane, adult, college-educated professionals can go absolutely ape shit over the mere mention of "9/11" and "our government" in the same paragraph, I offer this excellent article from the latest issue of The Republic of East Vancouver by Kevin Potvin. In "WTC 7 is 9/11 Key," Potkin begins

Press 9-11 Truth * Impeach * Devolution

“According to a July poll conducted by Scripps News Service, one-third of Americans
think the government either carried out the 9/11 attacks or intentionally allowed
them to happen in order to provide a pretext for war in the Middle East.”

December 18, 2006 - Press 9-11 Truth * Impeach * Devolution

Editor's Notes:

This issue is a whopper. Watch out for black holes. In the first item we cover an excellent review of the groundbreaking film, “9/11: Press for Truth.” The subsequent article is from Spain, detailing the same concern as one third of US Americans; concerns that a normal human civilization would re-investigate with “fresh eyes,” rather than continually misled from false flag operations. However the impeachment movement is growing, and someday real investigations will proceed. But for now, even progressives like Dennis Kucinich, is waiting for the people to lead on this issue. However, this issue contains the Kucinich announcment for running for US president in 2008, but there was no mentioning of learning a critical lesson from his last campaign. He joined the campaign after Howard Dean was recognized by many as an anti-was candidate; and by competing with one another, Kucinich was part of the equation that helped to nominate a central war-voting candidate, John Kerry.
