It is not a personal attack to point out the flaws and errors of a post that is passing off erroneous informaion that is deceptive. Why do you take
critisism of your sources as a personal attack? Has your religion been offended?
Also, he did address the information. Hardly any firefighters actually signed the "Firefighters for 9/11Truth" site. Is it wrong to point that
• So what if people signed a petition that were not present in NY on 9/11. They present video and written testimony of people who were actually
there. This is not a valid argument. Were you there during the Holocaust, or conquests of Alexander the Great, or during the crash that lead to the
Great Depression, or were you there when the Mount Rushmore was built? No? Then what is your point?
The petitions are signed by people that were fed BS by the "Truthers" and were not given the whole story. Only hearing one side of a story hardly
makes you capable of not being biased. Video and testimony of the day are personal experiences being told by people that were there and how they
processed the information. Eyewitness accounts give an idea of what happened, but they will differ greatly when compared to the actual events.
People saying they heard explosions, when a plane just slammed into a 110 story building, and have 10+ floors burning, is not rock solid evidence of
anything sinister or inside job, or planted bombs. To come to that conclusion, one must do actual investigations, physical observations of the
evidence and remains and search if in fact explosives were used. Just by going on what people said they heard is not conclusive of anything. There
has to be PHYSICAL evidence.
• Who cares how many members are part of Firefighters for 9/11 Truth as compared to the general population. This is also not a valid argument. How
many famous celebrities are there compared to the general population? How many leaders and politicians are there compared to the general population?
Does this mean celebrities and politicians are delusional and fringe? If yes, then why do you believe the Original Story of 9/11 as told by these
"delusional" and "fringe" minority we call politicians?
A website that claims to be "Firefighters for 9/11 Truth" and has NO firefighters actually in it (save for your statistical amount of loonies
present in society) should be a red flag to people looking for "truth". I'm willing to bet that of all the people that were in NYC on 9/11, a
small fraction would say space aliens were responsible for it all. And some would say that they swore they saw Elvis piloting one of the planes.
Does that mean we should take that into serious consideration too? Just because they are firefighters does not make them any more special, because
statistically speaking, there are nutters in EVERY profession.
Also, politicians didnt tell me what to believe about 9/11. I came to my conclusions after being a "Truther" first, and discovering how much I got
lied to by the Truthers. Yes I watched Loose Change, and Sept Clues and I believed them! But then once I started doing my own research into their
claims, and such, I realized how badly I got suckered by these slick snakeoil salesmen. I only went onto debunking sites later, and saw how my
conclusions were the same. I got suckered by lies of the "Truth: Movement.
Attack the source of the information and launch personal attacks, but do not address the actual information itself. I see what you're doing.

Would you be so kind to show us where exactly he launched a personal atack?
