Summary, April Gallop's claim of conspiracies are so frivolous that the court has not only turned down her appeal but has also ordered her and her
attorney's to pay twice court cost.
This is only a taste of what the truthers can expect if they genuinely wish to pursue their conspiracy claims. It's one thing to use desperate,
"Cheney said he was in the bunker at 9:35 but he really got there at 10:00. Isn't THAT suspicious?" bottom of the barrel scraping, childish "Rice had
an oil tanker named after her" innuendo dropping and idiotic "Bush knew someone who knew someone who knew someone who knew someone who knew Hitler"
Kevin Bacon games on conspiracy discussion forums, but in an actual court of law they'll need actual tangible proof of their assertion to survive
cross examination. Gallop for example claimed the Pentagon was blown up by pre-planted explosives and that no plane ever hit it, but all the defense
would need to do is call a few eyewitnesses who specifically saw the plane hit the Pentagon to throw that assertion into the trash. Of course, they
didn't need to because she couldn't even show there were pre-planted explosives.
THEN, after it was dismissed, they had the gall to appeal. An appeal isn't a request to try the case all over again. An appeal is a request for a
higher court to dismiss a lower court's ruling due to procedures not being followed which may have caused an improper ruling, and it's only a surprise
to her and her lawyer that they couldn't even show that actually happened. What, did she and her lawyer think they could recreate the rule of law to
their liking simply because they were spouting really sinister sounding accusations?
Until they learn to get their heads out of the clouds and get their act together, the conspiracy people are destined to lose and lose horribly. It
won't be due to any secret conspiracy to silence them, or due to any campaign to punish them for speaking out, but rather, it will be due to their own
horribly bad mishandling. I find this sad because this necessarily derails any real investigation of the failures of the gov't at preventing the 9/11
attack, since it will forever be associated with the alternative reality Alex Jones groupies like April Gallop.
