Corsi: I Did Not Have Truther Relations With That Man

The obligatory non-denial denial:

"That the Obama campaign has chosen to portray me as a 9/11 Truther just shows how sloppy and inaccurate the research going into their rebuttal was," said Corsi, a senior staff writer for WND. "Let me make clear that I fully accept and endorse the conclusion of the 9/11 Commission that the Islamic hijackers who flew the airplanes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were the sole cause of the attack."

But of course, nobody is accusing him of not believing that. There are many flavors of Trooferism, including the "let it happen but made it worse with controlled demolition," brand, which meshes with Corsi's interview on Alex Jones. And Corsi notes that he did write the article along those lines, but it was rejected for publication:

While Corsi claims in the interview that he intended to publish the story, the WND editorial panel rejected the article, with Corsi's agreement, after reaching a consensus that the research failed to answer several critical questions which left the results inconclusive.

"After the review of my draft article by the WND editorial staff, I agreed the piece should be withdrawn," Corsi affirmed.

"As I explained on the radio, I am typically interested in scientific evidence that lies outside the explanation of conventional hypotheses," he continued. "Science advances by rejecting hypotheses, not by establishing hypotheses. In other words, should somebody find convincing scientific evidence that challenges some aspect of any official report, that evidence will not automatically confirm the truth of an alternative hypothesis."

All of which fits his statements on Alex Jones. Except that he also said lots of stuff that Rosie O'Donnell would nod at, like the old standby that jet fuel fire can't melt steel/produce the microspheres. Remember Rosie? Her trooferism point starts at about 5:50, although you can tell she's building towards it all along:

I've got a hunch Dr Corsi remembers what happened to Rosie.
