Before i have to suffer a forehead bruise from excessive face palming, could i please ask people to take a second out of their life to read the next
few lines of SO's thread that was referenced to in the initial link. All we see in the article is this...
One of the co-owners of AboveTopSecret.com has written that : "AboveTopSecret.com is a professional "COINTELPRO" operation using secret
black-operations funding to publish and promote disinformation as part of the U.S. Government's agenda to deflect and discredit conspiracy
So people start running around like headless chickens.
Go on....read a little further....i dare ya.....
At least, that seems to be the popular rumor that has circulated about us for some time, and has gained some recent traction.
These "AboveTopSecret.com COINTELPRO" rumors tend to center around only one piece of content, CatHerder's analysis of the 757 at the Pentagon: A
Boeing 757 Struck the Pentagon. His post has evolved into our most popular piece of content, and very often is at the center of debate on this issue
on conspiracy theory websites across the web.
Because that one post debunks a popular conspiracy theory, the knee-jerk reaction of many is that "AboveTopSecret.com must be COINTELPRO!"
It was a joke, satire as some have already said. Get over it. If this site is so bad and is so shady, why do the ones that suspect it still visit it?
Is that not the ultimate in stupidity?
Thanks for the list anyway Issac, a very interesting read.
