Troofer Wars

I was reading the blog Arabesque, amused by the internal politics of the paranoid. First the author attacks Kevin Barrett:

Kevin Barrett is a prominent 9/11 activist. While he has significantly contributed awareness for the 9/11 truth movement, he has also damaged its credibility with damaging associations, discrediting theories, and controversial statements.

Can't argue with that much. Then the author posts an attack from the CIT guys in the form of a photo, of whom he is quite critical:

"Arabesque, I found a photo of you at a 9/11 conference... Oh the way[...] the plane approached on the north side of the Citgo."

Then somehow we are thrown into the fray:

Personal attacks are a diversion and distraction similarly exploited by FOX propaganda specialists like Bill O'Reilly and Michelle Malkin. Likewise, the 9/11 truth "debunker" site "Screw Loose Change" strongly emphasizes personal attacks against 9/11 truth advocates instead of debate.

Which is pretty ironic since I just proposed a debate with David Ray Griffin, only to receive a string of insults from Kevin Barrett.
