Go peddle crazy somewhere else

I don't understand the level of credulity among the American people. It seems like every ten years or so, some event of national significance always gets credited to a vast, evil conspiracy. The Moon landing was a hoax, the government killed Kennedy, the CIA created HIV to kill black people. These days, it's all about 9/11 and how it wasn't really perpetuated by Al Queso, but rather by the government, or the CIA, or the Jews. Some say the Towers weren't brought down by planes at all, but by by missiles protected with hologram generators.

Yesterday, Washington Journal had Charles Allen, a (the?) Homeland Security Deputy Assistant Secretary for Intelligence on. (The program is here, and you'll have to scroll down to the correct link; sorry, no permalinks. He starts about 2:00 into the full program, the first call is about 4 minutes in.) I just happened to come across this by chance. He seems fairly reasonable on the investigation of terror groups and talked a bit on how and why people become extremists. One caller asked about the search policies of container vessels, which is a legitimate issue and something we should be having a discussion about.

Allen talked briefly, then the show took about a dozen calls. It must have been Crazy Person Day, because the very first caller, a grandmotherly-sounding woman from Virginia, wanted to know why no one follows up the "Zionist connection" to 9/11, how they were "dancing on top of their cars" as the buildings fell, and how they had cased the buildings to plant explosives.

It was also two-for-one Crazy Person Day. A later caller from Las Vegas claimed the 9/11 attacks were a "false flag operation" in order to goad the US into war. This is the bit of what he said that steamed my broccoli:

Why don't you address what a lot of the people of the country think, that this is an inside job and your investigation, the 9/11 investigation, did investigate up to the point that the building was hit, but how did the building come down because physically, a lot of physicists says it's impossible, your pancake theory doesn't work, it was a free fall, that's a demolition job.

First of all, I'd like to meet these physicists that say a building collapsing is "impossible." Secondly, how do these people thing demolition works? You collapse some of the supporting beams and let the building fall down under the force of gravity. The planes hit WTC1 and WTC2 at about the 95th floor and the 80th floor, respectively. That means that once supporting beams gave way, the equivalent of either a 15- or 30-story building was dropped onto the rest of the tower. It would have been miraculous if the buildings didn't collapse after that.

Last week, a California highway collapsed after a tanker truck caught fire under it. The construction of the highway was probably mostly concrete and steel, much like the Towers. A picture is here, pretty impressive stuff. The tanker truck was carrying a lousy 8000 gallons. Each plane that hit the WTC was carrying the equivalent about one and a quarter tanker trucks full of fuel. Is it really such a stretch that that could have catastrophically damaged the building?

About one in six Americans believe the Towers were brought down by explosives, rather than by the planes. More than one in three believes the US was either complicit in the attacks or knew about them and did nothing. All without any evidence or explanation. Those are numbers I find very frightening.

An email from Kevin Barrett.

(Press Conference outside the office of Wisconsin Rep. Steve Nass, Room 12 West State Capitol, Madison, Wisconsin, Thursday, May 3rd, 10:30 a.m.)

Dr. Kevin Barrett, the University of Wisconsin lecturer who was denied a tenure-track position at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, hounded by Steve Nass and 61 state legislators, and handed a death threat by Bill O’Reilly—all because of his political opinions and religious identity—has opted for a new career: Fugitive Recovery Agent specializing in the apprehension of still-living 9/11 suicide hijackers.
Dr. Barrett will be traveling to Morocco May 6th to apprehend accused 9/11 hijacker Waleed al-Shehri, who, after allegedly stabbing a stewardess on a flight that crashed into the World Trade Center, returned to Casablanca and has reportedly been working as a pilot there ever since....

HERO OF 9/11 BREAKS INTO MAINSTREAM NEWS

William Rodriguez Hits the Mainstream
By GeorgeWashington
Created 2007-04-24 12:57
Email from Kevin Barrett of Mujca [1].

William Rodriguez's real story - the story of the explosions he witnessed that day - was never reported in the US mainstream media...until now.

Thanks to the dozens of people who kicked in with time, energy and money to bring William Rodriguez on his first Midwest speaking tour, William is now on the record, in the US mainstream media, describing the explosions he witnessed while performing heroic rescue work on September 11th, 2001.

"They always left the part about explosions out," Rodriguez says of previous mainstream US media coverage of his story. At first he thought this was because they had to convey the story in just a few minutes or paragraphs. But when the 9/11 Commission made Rodriguez testify in secret and then sealed that testimony, while refusing to hear more than a dozen corroborating witnesses, he realized that the government and mainstream media were hell-bent on covering up the truth. (For a summary of some of the massive eyewitness testimony about the controlled demolition of the World Trade Center, see Explosive Testimony: Revelations about the Twin Towers in the 9/11 Oral Histories, By Dr. David Ray Griffin.)

9/11 TRUTH PLAYS IN PEORIA

Christian Pastor’s Positive Review of David Ray Griffen’s Work
By Student
Created 2007-04-22 13:30

"Exerpt from “Ministering to all kinds of disasters” by Rev. Alphonso Lyons, pastor of Mount Zion Baptist Church of Peoria, Ill., in the Saturday, April 21, 2007 on-line edition of the Peoria Journal Star:

"'The New Pearl Harbor' was written by David Ray Griffin, a Christian and retired professor from Claremont Theological Seminary. Griffin embraces process theology, modernity and postmodernity. Briefly, Griffin suggests that the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist twin-tower destruction was in fact not a terrorist-led plot, but one engineered by American entities.

"Griffin documents evidence that indicates that each of the hijacked airplanes did not have the force to cause enough temperature to melt the respective towers and an adjacent building. He claims New York firefighter witnesses say that a series of purposefully charged implosions beginning below the ground floors moving upward actually brought the buildings down.

"The author suggests that a new Pearl Harbor was sought as a rallying force to unite the country.

"Religious implication: Griffin requests that Christians reassess and reinvestigate this painfully tragic event. How valuable is human life when it comes to achieving our goals and objectives of which money and power are major?...

The Rev. ALPHONSO LYONS is pastor of Mount Zion Baptist Church, 305 S. Madison Park Terrace, Peoria. You can write to him in care of the Journal Star, 1 News Plaza, Peoria, IL 61643, send a fax to 686-3296 or send e-mail to fv@pjstar.com

Let Shy Persons Get Up And DO What Needs To Be Done

"I KIND OF FEEL LIKE JOHNNY APPLESEED.

"Two things about me: 1) I'm a shy person and 2) I know our beloved country has been taken over by corrupt leaders. I want to do something, but I feel so powerless ... and afraid.

"Recently I bought a generous supply of Carol Brouillet's Deception Dollars

"I now discreetly drop them wherever I go. Places such as my local grocery store, Home Depot aisles, department store fitting rooms, school hallways, parking lots, you name it. Regardless of where they're distributed, they are picked up quickly.

"A couple of weeks ago I "accidentally" dropped one in a hotel elevator. My room had a window overlooking the lobby. What a thrill it was to see the young man who found it sit down with his friends, pass it around and watch them all discussing it.
