USA Today On Loose Change's Loose Facts

They must be part of the coverup too!

'They aren't truth-tellers'

Most of what the film alleges is refuted by the evidence at hand. Anything not answered definitively by the government is interpreted by the film as proof of a coverup.

Among the assertions in Loose Change is that a missile hit the Pentagon even though eyewitnesses saw the jet, numerous pieces of wreckage were found including the flight recorder, and those on the flight and in its path at the Pentagon are dead.

There is also the claim that because jet fuel burns at up to 1,500 degrees and steel melts at 2,750 degrees, the World Trade Center's infrastructure could not have been brought down by the airliners. However, as reported by the Journal of the Minerals, Metals and Materials Society, steel loses 50% of its strength at 1,200 degrees, enough for a failure.

"The only thing they (the filmmakers) seem to have gotten right about the Sept. 11 attacks is the date when they occurred," says Debra Burlingame, whose brother was the pilot of American Flight 77 that crashed into the Pentagon.

"They aren't truth-tellers looking to save the world," she says. "They're con artists hoping to sucker conspiracy-theory paranoids or anti-government malcontents into shelling out their hard-earned dollars."

Are you supporting Loose Change? Hard to tell from your title and say "They must be apart of the cover up to." Just curious because I was going to write about United 93 tommorow and came across your blog.

tell me though why were tapes confiscated on the hotel? Their are still a lot of questions to be answered even if loose change kids did have a screw loose and want to make money who doesnt want to make money I do. In fact I wish i would of put some put options before 911 like many did. That is truth. I have looked into it and many people have profited whether terrorist took over the planes or not

You cannot deny this war had anything to do with terrorism. Al Queda to Sadaam. I love this country, but I fear it will crumble.
