I read the blog and find it very interesting. First, I assume this occurred a while ago, so its not really breaking news (the blog says Dec. 31,
2008, but I'm assuming he met 2007). I do realize that in the context of this thread that doesn't matter, but I just noticed that.
I think that everyone, truther or debunker (or anyone in between) should read this blog. To me, it illustrates how not to form an opinion on this
subject matter (or any matter for that opinion). He admits that he only watched CT videos to form his original opinion, and that is why he became
involved in the 9-11 truth movement. I think this may be true of many people, and it is absolutely the wrong thing to do. If you believe in
something so much that you are unwilling to look at evidence presented by people on the other side of the argument, then you really are not interested
in searching for truth. Everyone should look at info from both sides of the argument, so they can form an educated opinion.
Having said that, I think that by far there are way more people that adamantly believe the official story without having ever given the information on
the other side a fair look. Many of these people call "truthers" treasonous, yet have looked at no information other than what the mainstream media
has told them.
The even more egregious offense is that the media refuses to even inform people of arguments against the OS, despite the fact that they are suppose
to be unbiased. This seems to lead more credence to the fact that there may indeed be a cover up occurring, and at the very least makes them
responsible for widespread ignorance on the issue.
I think that you'll find (and this is just my opinion) that the majority of people that fairly look at both sides of the evidence don't believe the
official story (myself included). They may not think it was an inside job, but they feel that there are huge holes in the OS.
While I don't question this mans sincerity, I do find some problems with his blog. He asserts that all of the leaders of the truth movement are just
charlatans trying to make money. However, he presents no facts to back that up. The fact that without evidence he presumes to say all leaders of the
9-11 truth movement are only in it for the money says a lot to me about this mans character. I believe that many are patriots that truly want justice
for families of the victims and want their country to live up to what the forefathers would have wanted.
Even if people are making money, it is still easy to see that the people on the other side (the government) have much to gain from telling their side
of the story. So leaving one side of people because they are spreading their message for personal gain, and going to another side that does the exact
same thing seems somewhat futile.
I also think that there is a problem with trying to lump all of the "truthers" together (as some on this thread seem to be doing). Only one thing
unites all truthers, and that is that we don't believe the OS. I may think that it was an inside job where real planes hit, and another may think it
was lazer beams, or maybe another would think the government just failed horribly and is covering up facts.
The fact is that the burden of proof is on the government. We pay them to protect us, and when they failed we payed them to have an investigation to
tell us why, and to many well informed people, that story doesn't add up. It doesn't matter if I have a different theory of what happened or not,
if the governments story is false, they they must be held accountable, and there must be another investigation to get to the bottom of it. I do have
theories on what could have happened, but poking holes in those theories does nothing to further prove the governments story (meaning both could be
Lastly, I feel this story no more reflects on the truth of the matter than when an OS believer becomes a "truther". I would say that 99% of
truthers believed the OS at one time or another (I know I did). So if this story is being used to imply the truthers are wrong, then we should be
able to use all of these people as reasons why the OS is false.
