Who's Who In 9-11 Denial

Here's a pretty terrific article on the 9-11 Deniers, going through many of the players we've covered here, from Hufschmid to Avery to Alex Jones to Chussodovsky to Justin Raimondo.

However, it is equally irresponsible to accept official complicity in the attacks as a foregone conclusion, and twist every fact to fit it. The mini-industry which has sprung up around 9-11 “conspiracy theory”—as well as the activist campaign that serves as its unpaid advertising department—has merely replicated the dogmatism of the “official version.” Worse, the endemic sloppiness of the self-styled “researchers” is delegitimizing the entire project of critiquing the “official version.” The ostentatiously named “Truth movement” is not clearing the air, but muddying the water.

Here is my favorite line so far. A quote from current Fire Engineering editor-n-chief, Bobby Halton, about the notion of Controlled Demolition:

“In light of the investigations conducted by NIST and others, this is absolute conjecture and not based on any empirical evidence or fact. The finest scientists available have been over every inch of that event and they know how it came down. The conspiracy theorists are an insult to the memory of the public servants who died trying to protect our fellow citizens. Fire Engineering does not question the findings of NIST.”

I loved this bit of irony:

The article argues that to maximize office space, the WTC was built without internal support walls, and without adequate stairwells. Needless to say, these cut corners ultimately cost lives on 9/11. And who's responsible for this? From the article:

Sadly, the "Truth" activists are thoroughly complicit in NIST’s whitewash, by letting the Port Authority and the Rockefellers (who oversaw construction of the towers) off the hook for their criminal irresponsibility in risking human life in favor of office space.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAH. The Rockefellers. The same Rockefellers who star in every retarded NWO/Zionist government/Illuminati/evil European bankers/CFR/worldwide government/prime bank notes/Bilderbergers/all of the above conspiracy in the known universe.

Guilty of a REAL conspiracy, involving corruption and death and greed and major world events. And the conspiracy theorists, those champions of free thought, are too busy cataloging photographic artifacts to notice.

The 9/11 Denial movement continues to bat .000, when they could have gotten a hit by closing their eyes and sticking the bat out.

Mr Weinberg was far kinder to the Truth movement then most other 'mainstream' journalists. Instead of focusing on the usual science arguments, Bill takes a look at the political anomalies that are so cherished by the junior Chomskites. CTers are even given an atta boy (bad pun fully intended!) with the quip, "The conspiracists deserve credit for catching anomalies before they slip down the Orwellian memory hole".

Even with this seemingly thorough, but politically sympathetic article, the comments posted regarding this writing call for his head to be laid on the block.

One poster quotes Noam Chomsky, seemingly unaware of the gatekeepers true identity. Another chimes in with this gem, "Bill Weinberg & Alex Cockburn. Writers who write for the sake of writing."

After reading all of the posters comments, I want to ask each of them, "Now that you've completed your first month of high school, was it everything that you'd thought it would be?"

Maybe because it doesn't have a damn thing to do with the topic of this thread?

The 9-11 Denial movement has once again been rejected by an existing group that ought to be on its side, and all you can do in defense is puke up yet another non sequitir link to Prison Planet and demand that YOUR claims be addressed.

The only thing less surprising is that your source is an "anti-Zionist" (cough cough) JFK-conspiracy talk show host.

Though I did like the part of Schoenman's website where certain episodes of his radio show link to a page where the lead story is "Urgent Subliminal Message from JFK."
