Rosie: Both Sides Now
Is she a 9-11 "Truther"? A letter writer to the Columbus Dispatch says yes:
Columnist Jonah Goldberg claimed that we shouldn't have to argue with crazy people, but in addressing his Thursday Forum column, "Rosie's rants aren't worthy of TV airing," that is exactly what I must do.
Goldberg said those who question the 9/11 Commission Report are crazy, but like many across the country, I do question it. By doing so, I demonstrate I am a reasonable and thinking person. It would be certifiable to blindly believe any version of truth supported by this secretive and lying administration.
Columbus911Truth.org has contacted countless universities, architectural firms, firemen and engineers in the search for even one 9/11 Commission Report "believer" who will stand up and defend the report's conclusions. We seek a 9/11 debate to help both sides understand each other. Unfortunately, it seems that people who are qualified to speak on the subject are on the side of the argument that Goldberg has labeled and libeled as "crazy."
In fact, not one structural engineer is on the side of the argument that Goldberg has labeled (correctly) as crazy. And I am sure that if a structural engineer volunteered to debate the kooks, Sherry (the letter writer) would not be debating structural matters for long before she started wheeling out the claims that "seven hijackers are alive," and "Mohammed Atta liked pork and cocaine and strippers".
The TV critic for the Chicago Sun-Times says no:
"Rosie O'Donnell is saying that our country, America, all right, attacked itself to launch the war on terror," O'Reilly has said, among other things.
Wrong. O'Donnell very clearly said she doesn't believe the U.S. government had anything to do with 9/11.
That's not quite correct, as he points out a few paragraphs later:
Conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck asked liberal O'Donnell if she thought the U.S. government had anything to do with the attack of 9/11.
"No, I have no idea" who blew up Tower 7, O'Donnell said, and later added earnestly, "We're gonna take a break. We'll be right back in America, land of the free, home of the brave."
The TV critic can be forgiven for not recognizing that Rosie's still at the "Jack Webb stage" of 9-11 Denial; she's "just asking questions, ma'am."
