I compliment you on your intellectual honesty...but I regret to say that ship has already sailed. Richard Gage (the leading snake oil peddler pushing
these "secret controlled demolitions" conspiracies) apparently has milked the conspiracy theorists here in the states for all the money that can be
had so he's been taking his travelling circus abroad lately. I know he already has travelled through England and Scotland. This time next year
there will probably be people bickering over what happened to building 7 in Latvia.
The whole thing is a great tragedy. We have our own problems regarding the London tube bombings. My point to the original poster was to dig
deeper for truth ie do not just accept what both sides are saying is true
- I am probably older than you and yes I have witnessed many things and read many things regarding so called Terrorist attacks hijacks etc.
Then you should be interested to know that a few years back I encountered a British fellow who insisted the London bombings were secretly staged by
the Illuminati. Plus, I've seen more than a few people insisting that Princess Di was assassinated by your SAS. Conspiracy mongoring knows no
geographical borders, and not wanting to accept the evidence on face value does not give anyone license to manufacture their own evidence as it suits
their purpose. Surely you can agree with that.
As regards the report - this I feel should be balanced with pertinent questions asked by so called truthers and other witnesses.
I am in complete agreement with you...but the thing is, just what exactly is a "pertinent question"? To me a pertinent question is asking for more
details on exactly how the US gov't responded during the 9/11 attacks. To the conspiracy theorists, a pertinent question is how cars a mile away
from the WTC complex were destroyed (a favorite point among the "lasers from otuer space" crowd). The questions are clearly being steered by an
agenda to advance a specific predetemined scenario rather than an honest interest in gathering information.
So, when the OP asked for a "fact sheet" we cannot be so naive as to think any such fact sheet won't simply be yet more conspiracy mongoring
propaganda in disguise.,
You want me to point out things on the report which I disagree with and yes I am avoiding doing that for the reason that it would be a waste of
both our energies. The whole affair is inconclusive and we will not make it any other way. Please do not think I am copping out and throw verbals at
me or I would be forced to respond.
Can you accept that I am unconvinced and leave it at? Pleas dont say I am talking BS as you did before - Respect my view - I will respect yours and
agree to disagree.
You misunderstand my position. We had a fellow over her during colonial times by the name of Patrick Henry who once said it's falsehood, and never
the truth, that needs to fear critique. You were posting things which did not have a satisfactory basis in fact so I asked you to provide
justification for it. Instead, you ignored the question and turned aroung and asked ME what MY justification was, and because I have no real need to
fear critique I told you my own justification...as well as asking you again. Now, you're refusing again. It is clear who here is afraid of critical
analysis and who here is not.
You are obviously free to do so, but you also need to know you're simply adding to the problem of this epidemic of bad information, rather than
