Deniers Go Nuts as Bush Mentions Explosives in WTC
Here's the transcript which is causing excitement in the 9-11 Denier's ranks:
(Note: See update below)
For example, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed described the design of planned attacks of buildings inside the U.S. and how operatives were directed to carry them out. That is valuable information for those of us who have the responsibility to protect the American people. He told us the operatives had been instructed to ensure that the explosives went off at a high -- a point that was high enough to prevent people trapped above from escaping.
Of course, Bush is referring to the planes themselves as "explosives" here. The part about "high enough" may be a little confusing at first, but I think his point is that if the buildings had been struck lower, it is possible that helicopter rescuers may have been able to pluck people off the roof and the sides of the building.
Of course, that is not preventing massive celebrations in the 9-11 Denial Movement:
There you have it. Bush admits to now knowing explosives were placed in the WTC towers. He can’t escape the truth anymore (9-11 Truth Movement is spreading like wildfire) and looks for the nearest Patsy, thereby placing the blame of explosives squarely on Khalid and Al Queda (but we really know who Al CIA-duh is don’t we?)
Bush HESITATES twice and gives away more than he is saying... he uses REVERSE LOGIC.. if the explosives are planted HIGH in the building.. there are LESS floors above where people can get trapped. i.e. If the OPERATIVES wanted to MINIMIZE the bloodbath they would WANT TO plant explosives HIGH in the building.
You know, I wouldn't find that convincing except for the all-caps, which prove to me that this is serious stuff indeed. ;)
Update: Kudos to folks in the JREF forums who pointed out that this does not necessarily refer to 9-11, and may refer to other planned attacks. Note this preceding paragraph to the one I quoted:
The bill would also provide clear rules for our personnel involved in detaining and questioning captured terrorists. The information that the Central Intelligence Agency has obtained by questioning men like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed has provided valuable information and has helped disrupt terrorist plots, including strikes within the United States.
So this may refer to post-911 attacks that were thwarted.
