Is the 9/11 Truth Movement becoming mainstream?

Once again, congrats to all those involved with NYC CAN. Such an initiative forces mainstream media to take notice.

by Kimberly Wilson

With the eighth anniversary of the tragic events of September 11, 2001, new life was breathed into the fight to discover the "truth" about the events of that day. The movement is known as the 9/11 truther movement. Individuals and organizations have been working for years to force the government to form an independent investigating commission. A previous investigation was performed; however, the group believes many questions have been left unanswered. On September 11, 2001, over 3,000 people were killed in the World Trade Center buildings in New York City.

Rethinking Conspiracy by Shawn E. Hamilton

Examiner.com ranks 1384 on Alexa http://alexa.com/siteinfo/examiner.com and has 8904 sites linking in. They appear to be a news aggregator that also published original writing. This article points out the House Committee on Assassinations investigation found there was a conspiracy in the case of JFK's shooting, and that the term "conspiracy theorist" has been used to malign questioners and dismiss legitimate inquiry. Unfortunately, the 2 main points he brings up about the 9/11 attacks at the end of his article are strange-

1) The Pentagon; he says, "9-11 critics, for example, wonder why there was no significant wreckage at the Pentagon. The official version says that jet fuel fires evaporated the titanium engines, yet the passengers' bodies could be identified. Does it take a conspiratorial nutcase to see a discrepancy?". The official version does NOT say the engines evaporated; claiming that it does sets his article up to be discredited and dismissed. I posted more about the lack of "significant wreckage" in my comment at the Examiner; pasted here below his article, following the fair use notice.
