It's been a few days since the 9/11 anniversary, so I feel justified in diving back into the politics surrounding the event, and also the swaying tower of bullshit built-up by the conspiracy-minded 9/11 Truth Movement.
A few days before the anniversary, I read an article
on the excellent website American Chronicle
(to which I am happy to contribute) written by 9/11 Truther and member of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth
, Joel Hirschhorn, repeating many of the same false claims and asking many of the already-answered questions about the Twin Towers and WTC 7: molten steel found at the bottom of the rubble, thermate residue detected in the wreckage of Building 7, the falls of the towers and Building 7 exhibiting "all the classic signs" of controlled demolitions, what proof is there that the government wasn't
involved?, and on and on and on.
I'm working up to another lengthy and vitriolic rebuttal of this sort of baseless, irrational horseshit, but in the meantime I invite you to check out the Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth website, and then go to a website like 911Myths
, Debunking 9/11
, or the excellent Popular Mechanics special report "Debunking the 9/11 Myths,"
which is now also a book
, to see why none of the claims of even the most educated and scholarly 9/11 Truthers hold water.
I also invite you to take a moment to laugh at these misguided imbeciles and watch this hilarious spot-on parody of Loose Change
, produced by humor blogger and contributor to Cracked.com, Maddox
, entitled Unfastened Coins
