This is a comment on a segment of the “Tick tick tick” editorial in The Times Argus July 27-28. It states that “As one commentator noted, ‘It sounds like one of those conspiracies that crop up about most every significant national event, from the supposedly fake moon landing to the inane chatter that airliners crashing into them couldn’t have brought down the World Trade Center without assistance from explosives planted by the government.’”
If that anonymous commentator and the various editors would rather not take a serious look at what happened on 9/11 by simply watching each of the three WTC high-rise buildings fully collapse in less than 12 seconds each, then maybe they should just let the topic lie and not call the 9/11 investigative engineers and scientists “inane” or equate the 9/11 physical facts with some fake moon landing.
To claim that two airliners, their fuel, and furniture fires could possibly bring down the Twin Towers, and WTC 7, in perfect, controlled demolition fashion only gives credence to the official (plane/fires) conspiracy theory which was used as the catalyst for an “Endless War on Terror.”
Galileo also had his conspiracy theory that the Earth was round when nearly everyone else could plainly see that it was obviously flat. He had to recant his spherical earth theory to avoid torture and death and he remained under house arrest for the rest of his life.
