Theologian stirs 9/11 conspiracy pot in Ventura

There is an increasing number of Americans who believe that George Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and several of their toadies should be in prison, this writer included. But to suggest that the Bush administration is somehow involved in the 9/11 attacks seems to be a jaw-dropping and frightening stretch, but not to the scores of interested folks who turned out to hear David Ray Griffin's talk March 28 at the Poinsettia Pavilion in Ventura. For those who get their information from Fox News, such a charge is blasphemy, treason and worthy of a perpetual Blackwater firing squad on YouTube. Griffin settled for frequents bursts of applause.

The 9/11 tragedy is certainly not the first event in American history surrounded by controversy and conspiracy theories, just merely the latest.
