9/11 'Truth' Grips Michael Moore

I've knocked a lot of people for their affinity for 9/11 conspiracy theories. Big names are no exception.

Here is a video of documentarian Michael Moore implying that 9/11 might have been an inside job, and that the World Trade Center might have been brought down by a controlled demolition.

"Well, I've had a number of firefighters tell me over the years, and since Fahrenheit 9/11, that they heard these explosions, that they believe there is much more to the story then we've been told. I don't think the official investigations have told us the complete truth. They haven't even told us half the truth," says Moore on the video (Hat Tip: Reason).

The videographers also try to get New York Press columnist Amy Goodman, who witness the collapse of WTC7, to join their cabal. She doesn't bite.

Moore says he plans to look into the 9/11 conspiracies in his own special way eventually, so you can debunk Moore's next documentary early by checking out Popular Mechanics. How about another video:

It can't be said enough.

Charlie Sheen Says US Gov't. Behind 9/11

The Post’s Page Six reports that Charlie Sheen believes the United States government planned 9/11—literally, not just by running the country that managed to inspire such hatred. Apparently, Sheen is following up his prostitute charity work by narrating a version of the loonier-than-grandma-on-ecstasy YouTube documentary "Loose Change," which claims that a corrupt faction within the federal government orchestrated the World Trade Center terrorist attacks. According to The Post, Sheen is “in talks with Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban's Magnolia Pictures to distribute the film.” He has also requested a new independent investigation into the attacks, in case, you know, past probes missed the “How To Devastate A Country” manual by the White House.

Kids Who Lost Parent On 9/11 Suffer

A study released yesterday showed that three-quarters of children who lost a parent on 9/11 suffered from psychiatric illnesses after the attacks, including anxiety disorder, posttraumatic stress and depression. Shocking, I know. Researchers at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center monitored 45 kids (average age of nine) who had lost a parent for two years following the attacks. Before 9/11, only one-third of them had mental health problems. They were compared to 34 children who had not lost a parent, and the number of psychiatric problems suffered by the former group more than doubled after the attacks. Findings also revealed that children who lost a parent are 10 times as likely to suffer post-traumatic stress disorder than those who did not.
