Troofer Propaganda

Jon Gold links this letter to the editor over at 911 Blogger, to an indignant response.

I have been quietly investigating 9/11 Truth groups since they made their first appearance before the dust had settled at the World Trade Center. Truther Web sites popped up en masse nearly overnight. Within days Truthers were calling radio talk shows, flooding Internet chat rooms and creating web logs to promote their point of view. They have been been well organized and efficient at getting their message out and it is time for the truth about 9/11 Truth groups to come out.

9/11 Truthers are members of a vast, well connected conspiracy of devious, highly intelligent and skilled propagandists who will do and say anything to further their own nefarious end. That end is to discredit, defame and vilify the U.S. government with any means at their disposal. Were it not for 9/11 the Truthers would be working dozens of other stories that would not garner nearly as much attention.

Actually I must object to the author's premise too. Referring to them as "highly intelligent" is both inaccurate and offensive. Even the claim that they are "well organized" is suspect to anyone who has been following their history of internecine feuds and a complete inability to accomplish even the simplest tasks without rampant backstabbing and backtracking.
