Three Easily Understood Lies In Loose Change
This listing isn't intended to be all of the lies in Loose Change, or even of the most ridiculous lies, or the most disgusting and outrageous. It's the easiest to understand lies, in one case a lie that can be refuted by looking at the film itself.
1. The cable spools. As I reported here, Dylan Avery asks:
Why are the cable spools in front of the hole completely untouched?
(Click on that picture 1-2 times.)
I don't think you need to be an accident investigator to see that those cable spools are not completely untouched.
2. Marvin Bush. Marvin comes in for his moment of fame at 53:33:
You're probably asking, if there were bombs in the building, how would they get in there without anyone noticing?
Ben Fountain, a financial analyst who worked in the World Trade Center, told People Magazine that in the weeks before 9-11, there were a number of unannounced and unusual drills where sections of both the Twin Towers and building 7 were evacuated for 'security reasons'.
Daria Coard, a guard in the North Tower, told Newsday that security detail was working 12 hour shifts for two weeks before 9-11,
But on Thursday the 6th, bomb sniffing dogs were abruptly removed from the building.
So who authorized all this?
President Bush's brother, Marvin, was Board of Directors at Securacom from 1993 until fiscal year 2000.
Now, you might quibble that they don't actually lie in here. I don't buy it. They ask the question who authorized this, and then follow with a factual statement that doesn't answer the question, and they do this in a deliberate attempt to mislead. First, Marvin Bush had nothing to do with the day-to-day operations of security at the World Trade Center. Second, he left his position as a board member of the company that did provide security in June 2000, more than 14 months before the terrorist attacks.
And third, the producers at Loose Change lie routinely about Marvin Bush anyway. Check out the video of the trip they took to Ground Zero on September 11, 2005. Dylan Avery is talking to a 9-11 widow, and says (22:22)
Do you know who ran security at the World Trade Center? Marvin Bush.
#3. Osama Don't Wear No Bling. At 1:13:00, Avery notes that a video in which Osama admits responsibility for the 9-11 attacks has him wearing a gold ring, which is forbidden by the Koran and thus which Osama doesn't wear. Except that they can't really know the ring and the watch are gold, and he's worn that exact jewelry before:
My point with this post is to show you that Loose Change lies, and lies routinely. It lies deliberately. It lies when it's showing you the truth. The Loosers talk about us being sheeple, they're ignoring the evidence of their own eyes!
