Charlie Veitch isn't much better. The guy is all show, he's from a rich family in the oil industry. He totally abandoned a section of his following
after he suddenly switched 'teams' in the 9/11 debate too and declared his belief of the official narrative after years of being a 'prominent
truther'. There is a LOT more to this guy than meets the eye, some quick googling will show that.

Never mind. Turns out we aren't allowed conspiracy 'theories' anymore, only conspiracy 'facts'. Speculation is bad, free thinking is dangerous. Guess
ATS should just be news and confirmed facts now. Hell, why even read ATS then, I could watch that on TV.
That reminds me of how scientology treats the people who manage to escape from it's grip. As long as you're 'in' you get lovebombed, but as soon as
you change your mind about scientology, you're called a Suppressive Person, and all ties with family, family, friends spuses etc are cut. They
actually run a special site which has as it's ai to villify such 'defectors'. They throw any kind of dirt at these people they can possibly think of,
accompanied with the worst picture of you they can find.
For example: here's their page on Tory Christman, who is a former scientologist of 30 years:
And here's her youtube, so you can find out first hand what kind of a person she really is: www.youtube.com...
Anyway the point of all this is to point out the line of thinking that's going on here. Charley Veitch was once a 9/11 'truther', and was heralded as
one of the big names in the movement.
But now he has changed his mind about 9/11, and now all we see is that he's being villified by the 'truthers', claiming that he's a shill, an agent,
and all the usual paranoid truther fare.
All this tells me that the truther movement has some serious culty elements. There's no space for anyone who believes differently about a specific
In fact, I've gone through the same process Charley has too. I once believed in the 9/11 conspiracy theory, but the people who kept insisting on the
pentagon having been hit by a missile was the first crack in the wall for me. Eventually the whole thing collapsed like a house of cards for me, if
you'll pardon the pun.
In my experience, it's near impossible to have a honest debate with truthers, because as soon as you seem to endorse something that sounds like 'the
official story', you're regarded as a shill, paid agent, undercover plant, etc.
It's all very culty indeed.
