Well, Well, Howard Zinn Disappoints the Troofers

Zinn of course wrote a cover blurb for David Ray Griffin's the New Pearl Harbor, in which he gushed:

"David Ray Griffin has done admirable and painstaking research in reviewing the mysteries surrounding the 9-11 attacks. It is the most persuasive argument I have seen for further investigation of the Bush administration's relationship to that historic and troubling event."
— Howard Zinn

But here he takes the (more) sensible approach that Monbiot and Chomsky have, that Trooferism is a distraction from the real work the Left has to do.

Buddy Moore, the Troofer asking the question, apparently ran for US Senate as a "Write-In" candidate; the Rocky Mountain News shows four candidates who received a significant number of votes in that election; Buddy Moore is not one of them.
