9/11 skeptics get roasted by dedicated truth seekers

With one-quarter of Canadians believing the truthers, even the “independent” Georgia Straight feels the immediate need to trash their views [“Truth seekers question 9/11”, September 9-16].

Lee Moller of the B.C. Society for Skeptical Enquiry has one quick response to claims that 9/11 was perpetrated by the American government: “The government is made up of tens of thousands of people, and they’ve all got different motivations, so it’s almost impossible to imagine that the government could pull off something like this and have nobody find out about it.”

How can Moller posture as a leader of skeptical enquiry when he subscribes to the most basic, most simplistic, most sublimely ignorant view of all? Mr. Moller, have you ever heard of the Manhattan Project, which involved about 50,000 people and was kept secret for decades? Have you ever heard of Operation Northwoods, a 1962 plan to deceive Cuba into war, that the Pentagon was confident could be done secretly?

Oh, and by the way, the U.S. government has millions of employees, including hundreds of thousands of persons with security rating, meaning they can say nothing at all about anything. And, of course, all covert schemes are done on a need-to-know basis, reducing the number who know the whole picture to a handful.

Moller, if you could just start thinking, let alone getting skeptical.

Bravo to the ever-increasing legions of 9/11 truth seekers and shame to the dwindling numbers of complacent passersby that like to think our leaders in government, whether domestic or foreign, are there for the general public’s best interest.

It never ceases to amaze me when someone who might pass as “intelligent”, like a history professor, dismisses a growing movement on the basis that it is a “natural human thing”.

Of course, it is a natural human thing to question something as preposterous as the so-called 9/11 Commission Report, as well as the Warren commission report on the assassination of John F. Kennedy. It’s a scary world out there, but it’s even scarier knowing that “respectable” people like Mark Leier are doing their best to convince the public that the official story about the tragic events of 9/11 is true.

Terrible pity.

"Mr. Moller, have you ever heard of the Manhattan Project, which involved about 50,000 people and was kept secret for decades? "

Kept secret for decades? Soviet intelligence knew about it before they even finished the bomb. The whole thing went public with a giant bang on August 6th, 1945, only 3 years after it started. And this was in the middle of a war, with a project aimed towards the destruction of enemies, not the mass murder of Americans.

Examine the 9/11 evidence and you will then question and see the entire 9/11 comission report as lies and unscientifically based crap o la. Please see Architechs and Engineers for 9/11 truth.com. I used to laugh at "truthers" now I am one. Examine the evidence or be fooled by our government again. H1N1, Global Warming, Progressivism, etc.

Hiding behind lies only gets you in trouble.

There are far too many anomolies in the official myth and these have been ignored by ignorance not refuted by intellegence.

Go ahead with the tin foil hat comments you deniers, meanwhile the peer reviewed journals keep mounting up and the the truth will prevail.

Don't forget about that grand CONSPIRACY known as IRAN CONTRA which involved the media, several foreign nations, the Us government, illegal drug trading and arms dealing. The culprits involved received Fox News TV shows like Ollie North instead of being locked up where he should be.

The smoking gun of 9/11 is the controlled demolition of WTC7 which didn't even make it into the official 9/11 Omission Report.
