#1 I don't think she's a truther herself, it seems more like she thinks the gvt is covering some unpleasant facts; seems reasonable to me, one RB commenter of days past (not a regular) had an interesting theory which purported that 9/11 had support from iraq, iran, bosnia, "rogue elements" of soody arabia and pakiland, and that it was in fact not the "lone gunman" terror act done by renegade AQ, but a concerted, organized effort by a transnational, islamic para-governmental web.

IE a true act of unconventional *warfare*, not a terror strike.

And you could probably imagine the russians/chicoms are not too far behind that islamic terror web, or even be paranoid and think it's a proxy.

This seems interesting to me, though of course, there's no way to know if this is a valid theory. And anyway, I'm pretty sure there had been LOTS of CYA by the cia, the fbi, the clintonistas (cf . the Oklahoma bombing & the 1993 WTC bombing iraq possible connections),... to hide huge failures, and possibly blame it on GWB, so, unless you're in the loop, the whole truth about 9/11 is yet for future historians to write.

#4 Yeah, tu - how did we make steel before jet fuel? Burning coke, if I remember correctly. Can coke melt steel? Not without a draft.

#6 I laugh at these articles. I can only note that when I encounter a "truther" they rarely can verbalize their "theories" mostly they refer me to movies and episodes of the X-files. I also note that I back tracked their websites, and I can not find any link to offer a comment. I can only conclude that most of these folks are seriously delusional. The serious question that all my opponents can not answer is "What would the Neo-Cons gain from their Conspiracy?" Martial Law over the country? What real "Robber Baron" would wish to see all commerce within our country come to a grinding halt? Any greedy politico would want any conspiracy to line their pockets!
The mistake of the "moonbats" is to try to tie naked greed with religious fantacism, the 2 do not coincide.

#7 It is my experience that many of these folks have grown more irrational as they continue to ingest their of fermenting Y2K Spam stockpile.
