Does anyone want to relive the trauma of September 11, 2001 in order to appease a bunch of nutters?
Most reasonable people are well aware of what happened that terrible day. A cabal of barbaric Islamists commandeered aircraft and carried out grotesque acts of mass-murder by flying those planes into the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon.
But within the conspiracy culture, the idea that 9/11 was an “inside job” carried out by George Bush or the Zionists, or the Illuminati is the new Holy Grail for the tinfoil-hat crowd. 9/11 is the big enchilada of conspiracy theories, blowing away the supposedly faked moon landing and JFK’s magic-bullet assassination.
Enter self-described “truth-seeker” Paul Salo who’s hoping to raise $1.5 million in order to recreate the events of 9-11, you know, to find out what “really happened.”
Another conspiracy theory? No doubt.
Watch as I explain, with assistance from Ron Craig, an explosives and fire expert, why the “experiment” is doomed to fail any way, even if they could raise the funds, which experts say would be closer to $1 billion dollars.
In the meantime, can the conspiracy nuts please go back to promoting their previous favourite conspiracy chestnut? You know, that the 1969 moon landing was faked? They’re wrong on that one, too, of course but at least claiming the moon landing was an inside job isn’t re-victimizing the victims of 9/11.
Truth be told, I’m afraid that not only are the so-called Truthers delusional – they’re also a bunch of callous creeps.
