AE911 Truth Watch

One of the characteristics of the 9/11 "truth" movement, and charlatans of all persuasians is that they constantly repeat things, even after they have been proven to be false. In this case , it has been 10 days now since Richard Gage, the founder, and as far as I can tell, the only active member of the increasingly inaccurately named Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth had this to say:

We will strike the controversial WTC7 squibs (in the upper right corner) from the online PPT and upcoming DVD update. I agree with the analysis - particularly the impossible "stationary explosions". ((Damn - I thought these were the real deal!)).

Of course, that doesn't mean he actually has to get around to it any time soon. A quick check of his site shows the powerpoint still has this claim, which incidently was shown to be fake well before it finally dawned on him.

In fact, not only is this in his ridiculously long 322 slide deck (talk about death from Powerpoint) this claim is still displayed prominently on their home page:

4. Squibs, or “mistimed” explosions, at the upper 7 floors seen in the network videos

Maybe we can start a contest and everyone can guess how long it takes before they remove the claim? And yes, "never" is a choice.
