Huffington Post Publishes "Truther" Diary

Well, well, well. Despite Arianna's (false) claims that the Huffpost is above all that conspiracy theorizing, one slipped through the cracks.

Before we tuck the Bush administration into bed and hiss, "Nighty Night, you lying scoundrels," before we go on to lock the door on that heinous era of American history, we do indeed need to probe what happened under their watch. But the event that most concerns me is what happened on Tuesday, September 11, 2001. Oh yeah, that's history, old news, the 9/11 Commission figured it all out, right? Except that members of the 9/11 Commission say it was "set up to fail" and that the investigation was severely hampered. So do assorted former members of the CIA, who demand a fresh look at the events of that day.

The usual retarded cliches by the Troofers, this time burbled by Melissa Rossi, who has just written a book entitled What Every American Should Know About the Middle East. I'm going to guess that it starts out with "Muslims didn't do 9-11."

She's got a Part II to her post as well, and that's where we get the unadulterated nonsense.

As more new information has emerged contradicting the official 9/11 Commission report or appearing to fill holes in it - reports about finding the black boxes of the hijacked airplanes, inconsistencies about Flight 93 (did it explode from a bomb onboard, was it shot down, or did it indeed crash as a result of the passenger rebellion?), contradictory reports about the identities of the hijackers and other reports that point to a number of Cheney-commissioned war games ongoing that day that the Bush administration never fully brought to light - and as the weakness of the 9/11 commission itself has come into the public arena -- the Obama administration owes it to the American people to reopen that can of vipers and in this sifting through the events try to figure out what really happened to debunk the fallacies - be they conspiracy theories that don't hold water or the suffocating blanket of disinformation continually dropped on Americans by the Bush administration.

Believe it or not, she links to the old BBC article about how some of the hijackers are still alive and to the newer article which says no they aren't and says "Aha, a contradiction!"

Rossi's bio at the Huffpo indicate she's a "serious" urinalist:

A former National Geographic Traveler columnist and special correspondent for Newsweek, Melissa Rossi has been traveling the planet for years with a goal of empowering Americans painlessly by simplifying complex geopolitical affairs. Her work has appeared in Esquire, Newsday, The New York Observer, and on MSNBC, and she has written extensively about Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. She is the author of, What Every American Should Know About The Middle East.
