9/11 Myths

Truther Taken for Psych Evaluation

Saturday, August 18th, 2012

The conspiracy fringe is in a state of extreme agitation over the news that one of their own was taken into custody by the FBI and hospitalized for psychological evaluation based primarily on provocative statements made on his Facebook Page. Brandon J. Raub is a former marine whose recent Facebook postings included postings about 9/11 […]

Noam Chomsky on 9/11 Truth

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

Those who have read my writing know that I’m no fan of Noam Chomsky’s political views, but I have to admit that there are things about Chomsky which I can’t help but admire. His ability to chop logic and reason things out is undeniable, and his honesty in acknowledging facts which don’t necessarily fit with […]

Ron Paul is Not a Truther

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

Ron Paul has worked very hard through two presidential campaign seasons to cross the line from being the Republican Party’s token libertarian gadfly to emerging as a legitimate leadership figure with a chance of winning the nomination in 2012. In his quest he has been both helped and hindered by his own followers. On the […]

Flight 77 Evidence

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

The arguments of 9/11 “truthers” on the impact of American Airlines Flight 77 into the pentagon are particularly farfetched given the existence of multiple videos of the crash and hundreds of eyewitnesses as well as massive physical evidence including large parts of the plane with serial numbers and DNA identification of the remains of the […]

This week the National Institute of Standards and Technology released its long awaited report on the collapse of WTC7, the smaller third building destroyed as a result of the attack on the World Trade Center on 9/11. The examination of the evidence is exhaustive and disproves every one of the bizarre conspiracy theories which have […]

A Truther Majority?

Saturday, July 26th, 2008

When talking to fanatics from the 9/11 Truth ‘movement’, one of the things they’re often proud to point out is that they’re winning people over to their viewpoint and that more and more Americans agree that 9/11 was an inside job. They’ll quote as their authority for this a Zogby poll carried out in 2007 […]

Paul Craig Roberts – Enemy of Reason

Saturday, May 17th, 2008

In a recent article ultraconservative pundit Paul Craig Roberts goes on at great length about the gullibility of Americans and our willingness to believe any lie we’re fed by the government. His main example is the destruction of the World Trade Center on 9/11, which he sees as a second Reichstag Fire, a manufactured event […]
