For one thing too much high school physics is thrown around.
Doesn't take a PhD in physics to understand conservation of motion and energy.
Then there's the unwillingness to examine each aspect separately. Flight 93 and the supposed thermite planting may not be connected. One
may be true the other not.
Unwillingness by who? Every detail of 9/11 has been endlessly hashed and re-hashed because answers from the government were sparse and cloaked in
"national security." As for which parts of the official story are true or untrue, when a witnesses' courtroom testimony is found to be false, it's
thrown out, perjury charges are filed and everything the witness says from that point forward is regarded as unreliable. Why should
governments be judged any differently?
I find Truthers essentially like Fundamentalists. "The big bad deceiving government did it." That's the argument and all evidence is
included or excluded based on whether it supports this view.
Fundamentalists, eh? Interesting analogy. As opposed to the big bad Arabs did it? OK, they're not exactly sure which
Arabs did it or for that
matter, which country is responsible. Let's just say it was that shadowy global bogeyman "al-Qaeda" along with the "Islamo-fascists" to keep
things simple. And never mind that Osama bin Laden can't be found, a half dozen "hijackers" are reportedly still alive, there were no Arab names in
the original passenger manifests or government autopsy reports, some of the hijacker "pilots" weren't proficient enough to rent a Cessna, others
might have used false IDs... or maybe not. It's all kinda fluid and ethereal.
Whatever, these are just petty details that don't require hard answers or skepticism. What's important is that two multi-trillion dollar wars were
expertly woven out of thin cloth and the "Patriot' and Military Commissions Acts were passed without any unpleasant scrutiny or debate. Oh yeah, the
monolithic "Homeland Security" agency was established to monitor those radical libertarians and peace activists with shiny new NSA satellites.
I think the Truthers are responsible for the large scale skepticism as much or more than the government and media.
That would be a good thing. Americans have naively trusted both for too long. If 9/11 is responsible for waking people up to how the corporate media,
government and globalists really
work, then maybe it'll be regarded as an seminal consciousness-raising event instead of a budget-busting,
