Bond, James Bond
Uhh, guys, it is a movie!
Now I have always been a big fan of my namesake, except for the fact that I am not tall, good looking, British, or a spy, I think I have a lot in common with the character, but this is taking it too far. The truthers are going crazy because the newest Bond movie, Casino Royale, has a passing 9/11 conspiracy reference:
The movie contains a significant reference to 9/11 when M, the fictional head of MI6, tells Bond the following:
"When they analyzed the stock market after 9/11 the CIA discovered there had been massive shorting of airline stocks. When the stocks hit bottom on 9/12, somebody made a fortune."
In the film, Bond prevents the same thing happening again with the Boeing stock, by thwarting the bombing of an airbus prototype plane at Miami airport. With their prototype destroyed the company would have been near bankruptcy. Instead, someone (we later discover it's Le Chiffre) loses over a hundred million dollars betting the wrong way as Bond foils the plot.
Well first of all, the stocks didn't hit bottom on 9/12, the markets were closed for another week. And secondly, have you seen how Airbus is doing lately? You don't need to be a terrorist to short Airbus, and go long on Boeing. But then again, I am from Seattle....
