The Charlie Sheen Obama "Interview" Was Originally Presented As Having Actually Happened.
For the first 90+ minutes of availability, the InfoWars.com website was presenting this article as an actual interview by Charlie Sheen with President
Obama. Some time after the interview first appeared, the comments, "What you have just read didn’t actually happen… yet,"
were added to
the article on InfoWars.com.
You have potentially been hoaxed by Alex Jones for nearly two hours this morning.
The rationale for originally omitting the disclaimer at the bottom of the fictional interview has been offered:
Separately, a few other blogs were up in arms about Sheen’s letter being a “hoax” because the disclaimer clarifying that the meeting with
Obama was a stylized fictional account and not a real event did not get added to the bottom of the article until a little later due to technical
snafus and a bombardment of traffic that shut down servers and locked out Infowars and Prison Planet webmasters. With the Infowars version having been
copied across from Prison Planet, both original versions did not contain the disclaimer until the error was brought to our attention and promptly
fixed as soon as we could gain access to servers that kept crashing, as many readers noted at the time. We added the disclaimer as soon as possible as
well as other information that should have been included at the bottom of the original article regarding Sheen’s appearance on the show. We
apologize for any confusion this may have caused and are trying to move our servers in house to prevent this routine occurrence from happening
The "traffic bombardment" rationale that caused an inability to add the disclaimer seems unlikely:
The content is delivered through a CDN service.
Here is the link to the originally posted interview, before the additional comment indicating the interview was fiction:

Thanks to ATS member getreadyalready for capturing the unedited original page.
today on www.infowars.com...
they released a transcript of the interview Charlie Sheen performed recently with Barack Obama.
Charlie mainly asks questions regarding 9/11
, but he briefly covers a few other topics as well.
i'll cut to the chase and let you guys judge the interview for yourselves:
whats everyone think??
are you happy with the questions Charlie asked? are you satisfied with the (vague) answers Obama replied with?
what's your favorite part of the interview??
i wonder if the President knew what he was getting into... i have a feeling he did
This is a fictional interview that never happened
