Even at a time when most Americans have turned against the Iraq War and the president’s approval ratings loiter at sub-Jimmy Carter levels, there remains one strain of anti-Bush fervor that mainstream politicians and pundits won’t touch with a 10-foot pole.

This, of course, is the belief that the administration conspired to topple the World Trade Center on 9-11—or at
least cover up the real story behind its
collapse—in order to sell a new war to the public.

Recently, celebrities like Rosie O’Donnell and Charlie Sheen have picked up the mantle of “9-11 Truth,” as the conspiracy theorists call their movement. To no one’s surprise, the actors’ comments were met with ridicule and derision.
