Silly People of the Day: Scholars for 9/11 Truth 
11th-Jul-2006 10:11 am
As you might guess from the name, a group of hacks unconcerned with the truth, but willing to do anything, or say anything, that would let them escape from the facts of that day. Evidently, none of them has bothered to inform themselves that their case is not airtight.

Does your university have any of these?

Ann Althouse has more of them.

What do I suggest for understanding their errors? See the link under "bothered to inform themselves." It contains the myths they advocate and the scientific truth that contradicts them.

And, as a side note, it's a conspiracy theory. I've heard hundreds. So far, not ONE has proved true as time goes by.

I think I'll be lazy and just answer number 4.

That was me, in public, arguing to attack Iraq, before the meeting covered by that memo. A large number of us took the same position.

And we weren't interested in WMDs. We were interested in taking down Saddam.

Posts on this site, if you'd care to review. Otherwise, my most outspoken friend was Steven den Beste, at USS Clueless. There were links all over the net to his arguments, fewer to mine, but we all spoke and wrote a lot of people. How secret do you expect us to be?

There were a lot of reasons to invade Iraq. I'm rather pleased by the result. Sure, there were mistakes. Not as many as were made in WWII, but many. But several orders of magnitude fewer deaths, both on our side and the other, and I'm proud of that, too.
