Let's be honest here. The only reason you are not giving this 'douche' any credibility is because he's saying something that doesn't
appeal to your frame of thought. Maybe we should all wait until they present some documents before calling someone a douche.
His documents purportedly show that the U.S. had "plans" regarding Iraq.
We have contingency plans for a number of things. We have entire amphibious assaults planned out on paper and sitting in ships waiting to be
mobilized to a theater
So, yeah - we had a plan going into Iraq. We didn't draw up a multilateral, multinational offensive in a couple weeks from scratch.
Unless you believe the government is agent smith. In which case - anything is possible and you've just supplanted God and the Devil with

Spoken like a true 9/11 truth basher.
They don't even really defend the OS overtly, but will still sit there and ignore evidence of it being wrong when they can't dismiss it with a
simple verbal eye-roll and a "witty" remark. Like just discrediting the topic by saying this person is only making himself look and feel important
because of his position.
I have this glorious concept you need to be introduced to.
It's called irony.
Now try and figure out whether I aimed that at you, or was deliberately making that comment in order to support your "witty remarks" segment.
Return when your mind is sufficiently blown.
I'm glad someone else is starting to talk about this though. The guy wouldn't just come out and Jeopardize his credibility unless there was
serious damming evidence behind his claims. But people will still call him "a guy using his position to gather followers" or whatever else the Bill
Mahr-wannabes will come up with.
Honestly, I'd never even heard of the guy before this. Didn't care about him then. Don't really care about him now.
Here's the thing: We could take the people who believe the moon landings were fake to the moon and show them the landing site. They will still
believe and argue that it was faked: "Well, maybe they really did come to the moon - but the broadcast was staged to one-up the ruskies!"
Similarly - we could rebuild the WTC and fly planes into it and show the buildings destroyed in almost the exact same way as they were on 9/11.
You'll still believe and argue that it was an inside job: "well.... fine, maybe they didn't use the GDI Ion Cannon or sub-space rupturing bombs -
but they let the hijackers fly the planes into the buildings!"
The thing is that your reasoning is faith-based. People are so rooted in this idea that 9/11 was some kind of false-flag operation that they have
argued over WTC 7's collapse ad-nausiem; suggesting that some elaborate scheme of rigging bombs to it was necessary to bring it down.
Yet the forest is lost for the tree. The belief - the faith - drives the need to prove something amiss to the point that the challenge no longer
makes sense. Two huge towers just collapsed - but it was necessary for WTC7 to collapse to rally a nation?
Ultimately - I can't argue against faith.
I believe our government is wrong about many things. I believe there is a lot of corruption in our government. I also know, for a fact, there is a
#-ton of incompetence at every level (people go to jail in the corporate world for the amount of incompetence/negligence I've seen displayed by
management within parts of the military and government).
But I do not believe the tripe spewed by the "9/11 Truth" crowd.
Sure - I enjoy the challenges they occasionally propose in engineering terms. And it is important that people continue to scrutinize
But here's yet another problem, and it exemplifies my point:
This guy said he has papers regarding Iraq.
What's that got to do with the events that caused 9/11?
Only that the invasion of Afghanistan put our forces in the theater and the political climate was favorable to tying up a loose end we felt should
have been tied up back in 91.
Seriously though, i hope something good will come from this.
You won't consider it good unless it confirms your viewpoint.
"They upheld the official story! Circus Court!"
Be honest, now.
