Lindorff Pans the Conspiracy Mongers

We've criticized Dave Lindorff in the past for promoting the conspiracy theories but he seems to have come to his senses:

What I am saying is that the grander conspiracies being concocted in the more fevered brains of some people on the Left do not hold up under careful and critical inspection. The biggest failings they share are two: first of all, conspiracies as grand as multi-state election thefts via electronic fraud, and the carrying out of a two-front, high-casualty mass terrorist act on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, require the cooperation of such large numbers of people that leaks, turncoats, informants and simple screw-ups are inevitable; and secondly, this administration in particular has shown itself to be phenomenally inept, intellectually stunted, and tactically clueless.

Lindorff still claims to have sources that tell him that the FBI recovered the black boxes from Flights 11 and 175, as he told Jon Gold recently:

Okay, so somebody lied to him, I suppose, because the government really has no reason to deny having those black boxes. But it is always good to see folks climbing back off the ledge.
