If I Were the Evil Genius...

R Mackey starts from that premise and proves that 9-11 was not, in fact, done by the evil geniuses at the White House, the Mossad, PNAC, the CFR, or any of the dozens of other suspects.

4. WTC 7 Collapsed, But Wasn't Hit By A Plane6

If WTC 7's demise was a requirement, an Evil Genius would have made certain that it withstood crippling damage rather than relying upon chance dispersal of flaming wreckage. A fifth plane would be the obvious solution. If one can hijack four, why not five?

Similarly, WTC 7 absolutely would not have contained explosives, for similar reasons to 1. and 2. above. There is no reason to plan for a two-stage attack when a single stage can do the job just as well, and without any risk of discovery.

Indeed, this is one of the key fallacies of the 9-11 Denial Movement; that everything that happened was meant to happen. WTC 7 collapsed not because it was hit by flaming debris from the collapse of WTC 1, but because it was meant to happen. The dumbest form this argument takes is when somebody says "What are the odds that they would hit three out of their four targets?" As if that was the objective, not to hit four targets.

Highly recommended!

It's like Matt Taibbi's article in Rolling Stone, where he imagined the Bush administration sitting around planning 9/11. "Oh yes, I think the outrage would be incomplete without a plane crashing in the middle of nowhere!"

This is one of the things that I think isn't said often enough - the 9/11 Deniers have a set of perceived holes in the standard version of events, and they have their beloved "cui bono" argument, but in between that there's a gaping hole where the plan should be. Once you start to piece together what the plan would have to be, you quickly realise why they don't talk about it.
