Have you heard of the theory that the World Trade Center was brought down by controlled demolition? We just never hear about this stuff. Like "Ulysses", "Naked Lunch", and "Howl" before it, you risk a lot of hassle from the man by making "9/11 Truth" your stock in trade. It takes bravery to stand up and ask questions these days, with anti-war dissent and people who say mean things about Dick Cheney being silenced left and right. But the editors of the Winnipeg Sun, and the reprint factory that is the London Free Press, are not afraid.
With the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, it was seen that 9/11 was amazingly fortuitous to the Bush administration, elements of which had been looking for excuses to invade both countries -- for purely strategic-commercial reasons -- in the months and years prior to the attacks.This is the newspaper. What is going on?
I heard a Penn Gillette Radio podcast that seems to have disappeared from archives (how convenient!). I 100% paraphrase, but Trey Parker and Matt Stone pointed out that believers in a 9/11 inside job conspiracy have, essentially, seen too many movies and watched too much television, and have come to expect reality to follow dramatic arcs.
If you didn't figure out halfway through the movie that the villain turns out not to be whatever you thought it was at first, then you must have fallen asleep in your seat.
The drama and the tragedy of it all.
I was going to put in a clip but Youtube is overloaded right now and I can't get on. I think I know why it's like that at just this moment. Millions of people are getting a reminder that evil just isn't a function of greed, that protective services make mistakes when faced with uncertainty in extremely unusual circumstances, and that there really are mass murderers as yet uncontrolled by George W Bush.
See the astounding Gagdad Bob.
