Richard W. Behan at AlterNet: 9/11 skeptics "neither extreme nor trivial"

From a source such as AlterNet, the admission that 9/11 skeptics are "neither extreme nor trivial" is a strong statement. Behan does not elaborate, and in places he supports the official story, but this is a useful timeline for demonstrating to mainstream liberals that the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq were already planned prior to 9/11, and therefore only a fool would believe that 9/11 was a happy accident.

"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the state can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie ... The truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the state." --Joseph Goebbels, minister of propaganda in Nazi Germany, 1933-1945
