A Parliament of Dunces

Looks like Dylan and company are making a hop across the pond to jolly olde London:

Labour MP Michael Meacher has arranged a special screening at the Houses of Parliament on 14th June. Loose Change, a 90-minute, $10,000 film by relative unkowns Korey Rowe and Dylan Avery, questions the official line about the cause of the collapse of the Twin Towers.

This film is, unsurpsingly, the subject of a heated debate. You can read about it and find links to the official site and free Google Video download on Wikipedia(video)". Please note that several aspects of the article's neutrality are disputed.

Meacher says: "I think 9/11 is so important that as many people as possible should see this film. That's what I hope to achieve. It really deserves to get the fullest exposure" (reported in Broadcast, 12th May edition).

Can't wait to hear what this respected MP has to say about the film:

Update: Check out this post for more on Meacher's loony conspiracy theories.

This is exactly the kind of momentum yesterday's poor excuse of a "release" was supposed to prevent. When you get past some of the hype and inaccuracies of Loose Change, you're left with VERY damming burning questions that need to be addressed.

A cookie for the person who can guess who Galloway is linked arm-in-arm with in that picture.

I'll give you a hint: "You spin me right round, baby, right round, like a record baby right round round round..."

Keep at it, Nesnyc. Not sure I'm going to keep up the effort in the good fight.

I have written James to request being a guest blogger here. My hunch is that I'm going to be denied.

So true. I asked myself, rather burned up - "Why did I waste all that time watching that specious drivel?"

While you're at it, make sure you keep pointing out that the americans never landed on the moon. Lots of burning questions about that one too. Still not too late to win that fight!

Loony! Downright bloody Loony I say.


Lee Harvey Oswald knocked off 3 rounds in 2 seconds with a rusty italian rifle, bullets went 'round in circles just like Arlen Specters says they did!


Huge communist assault on peaceful US warships in Gulf of Tongkin...mindin their own bloody business and all of a sudden helllfire and toorpedoes from all sides, no warning wee'd all been killed if not for the air cover we had.


And may I remind the audience...1 in 4 Americans approved of Nixon's job approval AFTER Watergate was fully exposed.



Given this background, it is not surprising that some have seen the US failure to avert the 9/11 attacks as creating an invaluable pretext for attacking Afghanistan in a war that had clearly already been well planned in advance. There is a possible precedent for this. The US national archives reveal that President Roosevelt used exactly this approach in relation to Pearl Harbor on December 7 1941. Some advance warning of the attacks was received, but the information never reached the US fleet. The ensuing national outrage persuaded a reluctant US public to join the second world war. Similarly the PNAC blueprint of September 2000 states that the process of transforming the US into "tomorrow's dominant force" is likely to be a long one in the absence of "some catastrophic and catalyzing event - like a new Pearl Harbor". The 9/11 attacks allowed the US to press the "go" button for a strategy in accordance with the PNAC agenda which it would otherwise have been politically impossible to implement. "

Looney...absolutely bloody Looney I say!
