Richard Gage Admits He Has Poor Judgment
There has been a bit of a troofer civil war going over the CIT promoted no-plane-at-the-Pentagon theory, where the opponents of this contend that anyone promoting this theory must be some sort of COINTEL disinfo operative. Richard Gage, one of the more prominent appeal to authority fallacy characters in the movement has caused quite a controversy by endorsing their viewpoint. Now, in response to this criticism he has now unendorsed, them.
In early 2009, I watched the “National Security Alert” video by the Citizen Investigation Team (CIT) where recollections of 10 eyewitness accounts of the attack on the Pentagon were presented (of many more that were interviewed). These accounts included the witnesses’ recollection of the path being taken by the plane prior to impact. The path that many of them recalled was to the north of the former CITGO gas station. Based on these few accounts CIT presented its case that the plane flew over the Pentagon since the damage trail was not consistent with the north path.
My main focus relative to 9/11 had been on the destruction of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers. I had not been able to spend much time on the Pentagon issue. I was initially impressed by CIT’s presentation and, more than a year and a half ago, provided a short statement of support for their efforts.
It took him nearly two years to figure out that they were a bunch of idiots? This is someone who by his own account studies 9/11 full-time? His excuse that he doesn't focus on the Pentagon is ridiculous. Hell, it took Pat and I about 10 minutes to figure out how idiotic this theory is, and we are just a couple of part-time bloggers. Gage considers himself one of the foremost authorities in the world on these issues, yet he still endorses theories which he himself admits are dishonestly created and not factually based. Pathetic.
