“Naturally, they need no evidence to demonstrate the veracity of their points. They merely need their observations to suggest other allegedly reasonable versions of reality.”
Yeah - crazy conspiracy theorists questioning why skyscrapers were for the first and only time spontaneously imploding at free-fall speed due to office fires (building 7) or blown into microscopic dust (towers 1 & 2) despite being designed to withstand airplane crashes.
None of them would ever bother to check if there was evidence of explosives in the dust, rubble and giant molten steel pools at ground zero: http://goo.gl/8oh2
Further, any talk of missiles hitting the pentagon are similarly unbacked by evidence. The pentagon security cameras just happened to all be off that day, why can’t those crazy loons just accept that?
Same goes for the North American air defense system, it was just turned off to save money that day, after the pentagon reported 2+ trillion in ‘lost’ funds Sept 10th, good thing the generals in charge of that cost-cutting were all subsequently promoted.
What I don’t understand though, is why the USSA put conspiracy theorists on the 9/11 commission:
‘As each day goes by, we learn that this government knew a whole lot more about these terrorists before September 11 than it has ever admitted.’”
– Senator Max Cleland
“If this decision stands, I, as a member of the commission, cannot look any American in the eye, especially family members of victims, and say the commission had full access. This investigation is now compromised.”
– Max Cleland
“Some 18 months after that terrifying day, we still have no comprehensive analysis of 9/11, no authoritative record of the many forces that led to the attacks, no definitive narrative of the events of the day.”

Totally crazy, eh? These same sort of loony conspiracy theorists have also claimed that torturing children and illegal wars killing millions are somehow not justified by the day ‘that changed everything’ - what a bunch of nuts.
