British TV Show Explores the Conspiracy Theories

Annie Machon (former girlfriend of no-planer and son of God David Shayler) and Ian Henshaw explore the conspiracy theories with a pair of debunkers. I sincerely wish the Troofers would drop the whole "Kean and Hamilton said the commission was set up to fail," argument; it's quite simply another quote mine that does not mean what they think it does; Kean and Hamilton did say they were set up to fail; they did not say that they did fail.

Henshaw also gets off the familiar "Bush helped the Bin Ladens get out of the USA" argument. It's true and everybody knows why; Osama is the black sheep of the Bin Laden family and the rest of the clan has nothing to do with him. He also gets away with the claim that Bin Laden worked for the CIA in Afghanistan, which is emphatically not true. Both Henshaw and Machon do the typical "I don't know what happened on 9-11," bit, which is hilarious, because they do believe 9-11 was an inside job by the Bush Administration. We also get the warnings bit, which does not fit with the inside job claims.
