Millennial Math: 9+11=1984

This is an article published yesterday on Common Dreams by Randall Amster. The comments posted on the thread are already pretty good but it wouldn't hurt to express more disgust to Common Dreams and also this author for such a hit piece.

COMMON DREAMS- It’s been a decade since the day that changed everything -- or at least, the one that finally laid it all bare. Over the years, I’ve tried to confront it, rewrite it, debunk it, historicize it, mock it, and ultimately ignore it, all to no avail. It’s not going anywhere, this Trojan Horse of the new millennium, this farce that launched a thousand ships. We’re stuck with it, even though no matter how we crunch the numbers it still doesn’t really add up. Or does it?

[This may be the only piece the NYTimes does on the "truthers" this anniversary -- please consider posting a comment. They are moderated, but worth a try. It's an opportunity to speak to the many NYers who read that paper.]

“No bullhorning during the memorial.”

That’s always been the rule of thumb among “truther” demonstrators at ground zero on Sept. 11, out of respect for relatives of victims of the terror attack, said Mike Skuthan, 32, a Web designer from Long Island who attends the demonstrations every year.

You Only Believe the Official 9/11 Story Because You Don't Know the Official 9/11 Story

Jesse Richard,

I don't believe the official story of 9/11 because I know the official story of 9/11!

During the past 10 years I have not met a single individual who, after doing research on the subject, switched from questioning the official narrative of the events of 9/11/2001 to believing the official narrative of those events.. It is always the other way around. Why do you think that is? There are good reasons for this, and I will try to explain this phenomenon right now.
