Jon Gold Asks Another Stupid Question

I would respond over on 9/11 Blogger, but I have been banned, along with everyone else who tries to point out reality to them. Ironic, since they are always claiming they just want their questions answered, but then ban anyone who does.

Ironically I mentioned this just last night in my Steve Alten post, as Gold is asking "What Is The Proof That Dick Cheney Was In Charge Of The Wargames On 9/11?", something that Alten brought up in his press release.

The answer is of course, there is none, as this myth was created by Michael Ruppert, among others, who obviously failed the reading comprehension portions of their SATs, and has been passed along unquestionably among generations of truthers. As 911 Myths explains, in their usually excellent manner:

To review, then, these claims seem based on two ideas: the first being that the Office of National Preparedness could take charge of NORAD exercises, the second that Cheney being given oversight of the ONP meant he was "solely in charge of the overlapping NORAD drills and wargames on the morning of 9/11". Big ideas, then, but look at the details and you see there's minimal or no supporting evidence. They just don't stand up to scrutiny.

So read that whole article Jon, and get back to us if you have any more stupid questions.

Actually, to save us both time, why don't you read the entire site?
