Palm Beach Dems Cancel Loose Change Screening

Too late to prevent getting egg on their faces, however.

It's nonsense, of course. In early 2005, an article in the magazine Popular Mechanics shredded the conspiracy theories. So, since Democrats - not to mention a number of Independents and Republicans - have many credible reasons for disagreeing with President Bush's response to 9/11, why would Democrats want to look so incredible by indulging debunked conspiracy theorists? Why would County Democratic Chairman Wahid Mahmood call the screening part of the "educational process?" By that standard, a documentary supporting Holocaust denial would be part of the "educational process."


Hmmm. Wahid Mahmood, you say?

Yes, Wahid Mahmood, a Bangladeshi, is the Democratic Party Chairman in these parts. Even more amazingly, he has many allies in the county's large Jewish community. True story.

"35 percent of the respondents in one poll agreed with some of those conspiracy "theories." (About half of those who responded to a Harris poll in July still believed that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction"

Probably no overlap in these 2 groups and the writer knows that the latter are completely wrongheaded.

The jury in the trial of seven men accused of plotting to bomb UK targets was sent home after a defendant refused to give further evidence in court.
Omar Khyam, 24, of Crawley, Sussex, said he feared for the safety of his family in Pakistan after they were contacted by security services there.

The judge told Mr Khyam the jury could "draw inferences" from his refusal.

andrew,
the link on the anthrax story doesn't work. Yeah, what happened to the anthrax attacks? It worked for a few years, scaring politicians and journalists from questioning the official 9/11 story.

Re the flying terror toilet plot that was foiled on August 10:


"But Lt. Col. Wylde, who was awarded the Queen's Gallantry Medal for his command of the Belfast Explosive Ordnance Disposal Unit in 1974, described this scenario as a "fiction." Creating liquid explosives is a "highly dangerous and sophisticated task," he states, one that requires not only significant chemical expertise but also appropriate equipment."

The Pakistan connection


There is evidence of foreign intelligence backing for the 9/11 hijackers. Why is the US government so keen to cover it up?

The writer knows they're both wrong, dumbass. That's why the comparison was made.

Andrew, might want to find a better site.

It's funny a site calling itself Axis of Logic lacks any.

From the article:

If the arrests were made without prior accumulation of evidence – what were the bases of the arrests?

This Petras fellow isn't exactly knowledgable, is he? More often than not someone is arrested and more evidence is gathered later.

This is your brain:

We acknowledge the sad reality that about 35 percent of the respondents in one poll agreed with some of those conspiracy "theories." (About half of those who responded to a Harris poll in July still believed that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction when the United States invaded.)

This is your brain on conspiracy theory:

Probably no overlap in these 2 groups and the writer knows that the latter are completely wrongheaded.

Any questions?

anyone who has been on the internet at some point in time since the late 1980s has heard of anarchists cookbook...so much for checmical expertise

as far as it being dangerous, i dont think they cared much if they blew themselves up while making the bombs, that was kinda the idea from the get-go

Ooooh you crazy wacky tin foil hatters and your black helicopter LSD induced conspiracies.

Lets let Andrew and Joan play together in the sandbox.

OOPS!

In Mahmood's honour, there should be a smiley that shows someone smacking himself in the head and saying, "What the **** was I thinking?"

Nice one.

Just make sure your will is up to date. That stuf's not exactly the most stable explosive around.

i know, im simply stating that it wouldnt be difficult for would-be terrorists to figure out how to make, and then make it

and since they are intent on becoming martyrs they probably dont care if it blows up in their face or not
