Well, what else can be said? I expected them to eventually try to pull something like this but somehow, I expected it to be a little more elegant than "Osama was into conspiracies and conspiracy theorists are into conspiracies. Therefore, conspiracy theorists are likely terrorists".

Yeah. Tell me more about how apples and oranges are both round. What a cheap shot.

I must say even I was a bit surprised to find him reading up on 9/11 conspiracies.

I honestly don't quite get that, he knew about the attacks, personally knew the attackers but he is reading Griffins book, I can only surmise it may have been for personal interest.

Hitler was also pretty big on conspiracies and in fact if you look into the ideology behind lots of terrorists they are big believers of conspiracies. Now I am not saying that if you believe the CIA killed JFK you are a terrorists rather I am just saying that lots of terrorists might shear you beliefs.

Well, if Osama actually did pull off 911, then it makes perfect sense that he'd want to read 'a new pearl harbor'. Since it's claiming the US had prior knowledge of the attacks, of course he'd be interested in reading about those claims.

Other than that, most the books had aren't exactly hardcore conspiracy theories, imo. More like alternative American politics. Seems like he was more interested in how TPTB manipulate the american public, more than anything else.

the attackers where almost all saudi not iraqi

The establishment magically find his bookshelf and claim he was a hardcore conspiracy reader.
Smells like a BS smear campaign that the Military Industrial Complex/megacorp controlled mainstream media is famous for.

Is this "begging the question" and "guilty by association" fallacy?

Osama Bin laden was a terrorist. Osama bin laden was into conspiracies. Therefore all persons that are into conspiracies are terrorists.

Hitler was a racist and a mass murderer. Hitler was into conspiracies. So therefore all conspiracy theorists are racist mass murderers.

Come on. This is getting silly.

Bingo! Love your post.

I distrusted it as soon as I heard about the "release of this information" and you are exactly right. They want to directly equate terrorism with conspiracy theories. All conspiracy theorists are terrorists. It is a ridiculous inference.

The games intelligence plays are getting so easy to spot. It is getting silly, as you said.

Sounds like just another way to discredit and vilify "conspiracy theorists".

"Oh you follow conspiracies? Didn't Osama Bin Laden like conspiracies??"

A tenuous link. Why go after conspiracy theorists if they pose no threat?

Bin Laden's "bin" dead since December 14, 2001 from complications due to kidney failure. They just listed these books to discredit conspiracy theorists in general and the 911 truth movement specifically. The whole Bin Laden raid story is unraveling, spurred on by Seymour Hersh and they are desperate to maintain the lie any way they can.

That's an old story. I remember that a long time ago.

And yes, those same conspiracy theories are used by Muslims against Jew, if people would actually invest time into researching that then they would see that the Islamic world is the greatest anti-Jew conspiracists. And then the same conspiracies are repeated on ATS and youtube, and no one checks the sources.

I wonder if he had any interest in the one where public enemy no 1 was supposedly taken out in a special forces attack and fed to the sharks so there was no body?

Goddamn!! Only NBC would call Chomsky a conspiracy-writer. And since when was MKULTRA or congressional hearings about the program a 'conspiracy?' Until just 40 odd years ago, the program was still active. Who knows what remains and how effective the mind-control techniques were?
