How Indeed Could We Think of the Truthers As Kooks and Weirdos
I dunno, maybe it has something to do with this post at 9-11 Blogger:
To anticipate the cries from the loons that Webre is not some mainstream truther, let me remind them that he co-authored a memorandum to Congress recommending President Bush be tried for treason. Along with David Ray Griffin.
The main grounds for concluding that there is prima facie evidence that the named individuals - U.S. President George W. Bush, U.S. Vice President Richard B. Cheney, U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld - abused the power of their office and committed Article III Treason on September 11, 2001 are contained in a Legislative Memorandum to the U.S. Congress accompanying the 9/11 Independent Prosecutor Act. This Legislative Memorandum was co-authored by expert researcher David Ray Griffin, independent scientist Leuren Moret and attorney Alfred Webre.
Webre was also a featured speaker at the 2007 9-11 anniversary festivities in New York City:
The LaRouchies seemed to realize they weren't welcome at the event, but it's hard to think that the sermon they were preaching was any more outlandish than, say, that of Alfred Webre, who was given 45 minutes to talk on the topics "9/11 as a war crime" and the "development of [an] international tribunal" for the Bush administration. After touching on those subjects (to great applause), he veered off course, arguing that an "artificial intelligence matrix" controlled by the Rothschild family might have caused 9/11, that the cancer rate in Iraq now stands at 30 percent, that AIDS is a biological weapon created to control the population, that global warming is being caused by a black hole 23 light years from Earth, and that the NYPD was employing a supersonic crowd disruption device that was depressing turnout.
BTW, do you know what that 2007 conference was titled? "Ready for the Mainstream". Seriously, folks, you cannot parody these idiots.
