Troofers Gain Mainstream Credibility....
Wait for it, wait for it....
In the Onion.
But today, Santa would like to tell you all about something very naughty, something very, very naughty indeed. Dear children, have you not heard? Why, 9/11 was an inside job! Oh, ho, ho, my, yes it was!
I mean, look at the facts, boys and girls! We already know the Bush administration was itching to go to war in Iraq, now, don't we? Yes, indeed we do, my darling ones! The Downing Street memo proves that beyond a shadow of a doubt. Then you look at the Presidential Daily Briefing of Aug. 6, 2001, the one headlined "Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S." Ignored! Why, children, they threw that briefing aside like used wrapping paper on Christmas morning, didn't they?
Now, it's a singularly unfunny article repeating many of the usual nutbar talking points--jet fuel can't melt steel, nano-thermite, the BBC reported that Building 7 collapsed before it did, etc. To be honest, I don't know why the Onion posted it, unless, well, maybe it was to see the buffoonish reaction of the Truthers.
what a great christmas present . this should be on the front page
Is this an omen that the "establishment" is ready to face 9/11 truth? We can hope.
BTW, the Onion did a terrific parody of a talk-show debate between a Truther and an Al Qaeda member a few years back.
I love the "talking to you is like talking to a goat" line; talking to Truthers is indeed like talking to a Petgoat.
