Trust me, if Obama has any "disinformation agents", ATS will be the *last* place they'll come to spread their lies. The reason I say this is
because we ATS members are already doing a remarkable job of spreading disinformation. There is no need for anyone to come here and add to that.
See, this forum is free to discuss just about any conspiracy theory. For any theory, there are dozens of sub-theories. Take 9/11. OK, there's the
standard explanation, then there's the notion that the government did it, then there's the idea that there were no planes involved, that thermite
was used, that the planes were holograms, the NWO did it, the Illuminati, the Russians, that it was missiles, and so on. I haven't actually seen
anyone claim it was done by aliens, but it wouldn't surprise me to hear it. Maybe the truth is in there somewhere, but there is absolutely no way to
ever know *which* explanation is closest to the truth.
Same with Obama. There are so many different claims about him, good and bad, that there is no way to know which, if any, happen to be true.
Fortunately, most people don't actually care. They have their axe to grind, their special agenda, and mostly refuse to be swayed by facts or other
No, what we're seeing here is not "disinformation agents", unless you want to count uninformed ATS members as "disinformation agents". Our own
members do so much to muddle the truth that there is no need to call for outside help.
Look at recent posts. Several members were freaking out because we were slamming a 2-ton object into the Moon. Two tons. There were actually
members afraid that the Moon might be seriously damaged or destroyed by this. There were claims that the crater would be 5 miles wide and eject
material 60 miles into space. Someone claimed that we were bombing the Moon with a 2 megaton bomb. All of this hysteria could have been avoided by
checking a few facts and working out a bit of math. Oh, and a bit of common sense.
The problem is, when there are constant hysterical alerts like this, it desensitizes us to the occasional legitimate concerns that arise. It's the
"boy who cried wolf". Too many fase alarms, and you wind up ignoring the real ones, too.
There is enough nonsense being written about Obama, both good and bad, that it is impossible to discern the truth. We've got people thinking he's
St. Obama, and others thinking he's the Antichrist. The truth is somewhere between those extremes. Where? I don't know, but I'm betting he's
basically human. But with all the chatter, there's no need to waste time with disinformation.
The Truth is out there, but we'll never find it among all the lies, half-truths, and downright nonsensical stuff it's lost in, like a needle in a
