Unintentionally Hilarious Conspiracy Theory Question of the Day

I already posted on this in the comments, but I thought this was funny enough to deserve its own post. One of our regular readers points us to this blog, arguing that a plane did not hit the World Trade Center. It ends with this "provocative" question:

So, apart from the videos of the plane, this strange hole in the building and a few plane parts that may well have been planted on the streets, what IS the evidence that a plane hit the South tower?

A cynic could add, uhh, I don't know, how about the thousands of New Yorkers who saw the planes hit in broad daylight? But regardless I couldn't help but be reminded of that great Monty Python historical epic "The Life of Brian".

Reg: All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

Attendee: Brought peace?

Reg: Oh, peace - shut up!

Reg: There is not one of us who would not gladly suffer death to rid this country of the Romans once and for all.

Dissenter: Uh, well, one.

Reg: Oh, yeah, yeah, there's one. But otherwise, we're solid.

They've sure got us here.

Aside from the hole, the plane parts, the videos, and the witnesses, we've got nothing.

Aside from the fact that dozens of
my co workers at the Bayway oil
refinery in Linden (just south of
Newark Airport ) witnessed it going
into the building. My boss came
downstairs to tell us that two
planes just hit the WTC and that
they had just witnessed it. Went
upstairs and watched the buildings
burn then collapse. The scene in
"UNITED 93" showing the air traffic
controllers in the tower watching
as United 175 ploughs into the
south tower is gut wrenching real
Brought back some bad memories.

Since everyone believed in Osama, none of this should come as a surprise.

Nesnyc, I thought the US government supplied and trained Osama back in the day? Why would we waste time and money on training someone who's imaginary?

Being consistent is not the conspiracy idiot's strong suit.

I guess my father and brother are part of the conspiracy. They both worked in lower Manhattan on 9/11/01. My brother saw both planes fly into the towers and my father saw the second plane strike.

Of course, maybe they are not really my brother and father. Maybe the government has brainwashed me into believing these people are my close relatives. Perhaps I am unknowingly a top Halliburton employee, or a former Mossad agent.


Thank you, CT'ers, for helping me see through their devious plans.
