NY Press on the Kooks

I am glad to see this proposal by Alarming News is catching on.

Political consultant Karol Sheinin will go one further, arguing instead that the government is retarded and could never get its act together to pull off such a grand scheme unnoticed. “I know enough about the government to know that they are generally incompetent, that they can’t keep a secret” said Sheinin. “All these things are way too complicated, there’s no way our government is that powerful.”

But Sheinin worries that the 9/11 “truth” movement might pick up steam and could eventually become part of our national memory. So in September, on the anniversary of the attacks, Sheinin and others will stand at Ground Zero and hand out pamphlets, titled “The Truth About 9/11.” The inside will not be filled with the rants of crazed pseudo-scientists about the inability of fire to melt steel (then why do we fireproof steel?) or the claim that Donald Rumsfeld tipped his hand regarding the impending attacks in Parade magazine. No, Sheinin’s pamphlets will contain actual truths about 9/11, especially the truth that so many “truthers” cannot seem to grasp: that 19 Muslim men of Middle Eastern descent hijacked four planes and crashed them into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Original project post here.

The only thing I would caution them on is that they should not try to debate the "Truthers" directly because they'll not be able to school themselves on the proper debunking of all the "evidence" that the kooks have in the month and a half before 9-11-07. We've been doing this for over a year now so we've pretty much seen it all. For example, the response to "Fire can't melt steel," is not "Yes it can, look at this blacksmith," it's "Nobody says the steel melted."
