I'm Gonna Need You To Shut It
I've been intrigued lately by the theories circulating about the 9/11 conspiracy and cover-up. By "intrigued" I mean "blown away at the depth of retardation". If I see one more 911truth.com sign somewhere, I'm going to throw up. Because, even though I believe the government is capable of some evil stuff, and Sasquatch and the chupacabra will someday be exposed, even I can't stomach this BS.
"No plane was seen at the Pentagon!" "There were puffs of smoke on the lower floors before it collapsed!" "A plane's jet fuel can't get hot enough to melt the steel columns of the WTC!"
And there's no point trying to rebutt. It's like talking to someone about their astrology beliefs. With every word out of their mouth coming from a place of complete fantasy, you can soon tell that your words are a sturdy rope of truth thrown to an armless man in some quicksand of absurdity. Besides, actual scientists have given point-by-point rebuttals that make a whole lot more sense than my blog. Why not, here's another one for anybody interested.
All that needs to be said is "Yep, the government wanted to kill 3,000 of its own citizens."
Well, the conspiracy theorists got a hot carl yesterday in the form of a new report by, again, actual scientists that have been investigating the events of 9/11 and concluded that sorry, even the government didnt know about Flight 93 until it was blazing on the ground. Sorry, sad losers! Time-stamped audio tapes!
Incompetent military leaders, unprepared for homeland attacks, then lying about it after the fact to cover their asses? That I can swallow.
