Dylan put the following video up on his blog today, apparently thinking this is great evidence:
The big news here is that Jack Kelley claims that his sources told him that the FBI thought that as the planes hit the WTC towers, that trucks packed with explosives went off at the same time. Intriguing story, and it may even be true that was an early theory. But....
As I mentioned the other day, neither James nor I have commented on Dylan's girlfriend on this blog, despite his paranoid claims to the contrary. Why? Because she's irrelevant to the topic we're discussing. Dylan himself is frequently irrelevant; he's not the issue here, it's the outrageous claims he makes in his movie. Unlike, say, Eric Hufschmid, I don't care if he goes out drinking with his buddies at the end of a long day. I did too when his age.
But here's a case where I'd say that Dylan's relative youth is relevant, because he's obviously not been a news consumer for a long time. Nobody who's been paying attention the last couple of years would link to a video where Jack Kelley of USA Today makes interesting claims about what "sources" told him. Why? Because he was fired from his job at USA Today for making up sources!
When neither the newspaper nor Kelley could verify a story he reported in Belgrade in 1999, Kelley essentially invented a witness to corroborate the account, the editors said in a statement published on the newspaper's Web site.
What's next, citing Jayson Blair and Stephen Glass?
