From the Files of the Oliver Stoned

Have the kool-aiders of the far-left again lost their collective minds? For a while now there has been a huge upsurge of 9/11 conspiracy theories since 2002. In short, these theoretic abominations do nothing for the truth and even less for the victims families. There are many various websites and blogs circulating the internet about how the Bush administration master-minded the terror attacks on New York and Washington.

All the while the hijackers had done their pilot training in the U.S. during the Clinton presidency, so President Bush must have done all this scheming while he was still governor of Texas. Pretty good for a dumb, hick-cowboy, huh? They conclude from selected half-quotes (of which, many of the authors have either retracted their statements, or deny the quotes altogether) paranoia and pseudoscience that Bush, Rumsfeld, Cheney, Rove, Wolfowitz, etc. hatched this devious plan to murder over 3,000 of their fellow countrymen just to have a precursor to war in Iraq, consciencly forgetting that Saddam Hussein had broken almost every U.N. resolution imposed on him by the world in 1991, thus giving the U.S. every right to usurp him from power. Don't get me started on whether he was a direct threat to America or he had no connection with 9/11. That's all rhetoric by the apologists and terrorist supporters who have no interest in history or protecting their nation.

The purveyors of these videos and websites sell this concept in an attempt (other than more faux reasons to hate Bush) to sell their DVDs, t-shirts, bumper-stickers, pens, key-chains and what have you. I quote Debra Burlingame (sister of flight 77 pilot) when she was intervied by William M. Welch, writing for USA Today, dated April 29, 2006:
"The only thing they seem to have gotten right about the Sept. 11 attacks is the date when they occurred. They aren't truth-tellers looking to save the world, they're con-artists hoping to sucker conspiracy-theory paranoids or anti-government malcontents into shelling out their hard-earned dollars."

This quote is in direct contradiction to the biggest amalgamation of myths put to video to date that is "Loose Change", made by 22-year-old Dylan Avery and friends. But have faith all ye with common sense, there are some that have had enough of the distortions, manipulations and downright lies. These people have started their own blogs, websites and made their own videos rightfully debunking and condemning these deliberate attempts at rewriting history. One of which is right here on blogger.com that goes by the name of "Screw Loose Change".
(www.screwloosechange.blogspot.com) Another being "9/11 Myths...Reading Between the Lies" www.911myths.com If you want to check out the answer to "Loose Change", see this video, and this. Of course, Popular Mechanics is officially now in on the conspiracy.

These sites can say and disprove more than I can at this particular point in time, so perhaps I will be satisfied with this and future blogs here being a compendium of sorts to those and others that are fighting the good fight. A fight, by the way, that shouldn't have to be.
I will be posting (along with my fellow debunkers) anything and everything that I can find to expose the kooks wherever and whenever I can, although the above websites pretty much said all there is to be said. Just remember this; these are the same sort of wackjobs that said man has never walked on the moon either.

Be sure to check out the book “Debunking 9/11 Debunking: An Answer to Popular Mechanics and Other Defenders of the Official Conspiracy Theory” due out in March by Dr. David Ray Griffin.

Um..no, Griffin is also a far-left Kook. So, no thanks. I mean, would you read a book by Stalin debunking show trials or gulags?

Dude, once again, no clue. "Stinker" wished for me to check out a 9/11 conspiracy book that propourts to "debunk" a book that exasterbated a lie about Bush's involement in 9/11. Even democrats are not foolish to believe that, including Clinton and Obama!

If you know who David Ray Griffin is, you would know he has been discredited by every major scholar, engineer, demolitions expert and anyone with half a brain. It's got nothing to do with "both sides." it's a discredited piece of claptrap that won't get any mention on my blog. Seriously, you should research a couple of things before you try to leave me "gotcha" questions. Who are you Charles Gibson?

Would you read a book by David Dukes or Hitler? Would you? You kind of know what to expect, right?
