I have been strongly resisting the rabbit hole. I don't know how much longer I can hold out. Help me.


wow. A co-worker of mine was just talking to me about this very issue yesterday. "if you watch video of the collapse of the World Trade Center, you'll see flashes is several key areas of the towers--just like a carefully crafted building demolition". Don't buy into the hype, Lisa. Our government may be corrupt. Our President may be a lying son-of-a-bitch who was going to go after Saddam Hussein no-matter-what. But--the U-S government had absolutely nothing to do with those towers tumbling to the ground, killing thousands of innocent U-S citizens. Conspiracy theories are a good thing. They spark honest discussion and debate. But, please....

This argument borders on paranoia. It was terrorism. Pure and simple.


I lost a pregnancy on the same day the Murrah builing was bombed. I didn't realize Hitler's birthday was that day. One of my best friends and her son were both born that day. Hum...


T, I think you missed the essense of what I was trying to say. I think the government knew all about 9/11. They just chose not do act upon the information, just like they chose not to act on information about Oklahoma City, nor to prosecute anyone other than McVeigh or Terry Nichols.

I don't know what to think about the way the WTC came down. It just doesn't look right.

Hi Lisa. Very interesting to see this post today. I went three rounds on the Argus website's comment section with one individual who has "Kluck lite" views. The timing was ironic.

As for the other stuff.
I used to be a lot more of a conspiracy theorist in my younger days, but I still don't think McVeigh acted alone. No followups on Andreas Strassmeir or Michael Brescia.

I've seen conspriacys on both the right and left about several of these cases. Some I question more than others.

I think a lot of the problems in governments are with mid to upper - level bureaucrats who are glory hounds. It never changes no matter who is president, most of the mid-levels are still around. Some DA or BATF Lt sees a change to make it big and go out in a blaze of glory and get himself a promotion.

Unfortunately, I think it's been at least 15 years since we had a good US Att General would have the guts to shake the old-boys networks down the hierarchy, but that's another story.



Dan, Andreas Strassmeir and Michael Brescia are explored in the books I read.

And wasn't Brescia a piece of work? A transexual white supremacist? You can't make this shit up.

I don't even read the drivel in the chat at the LCP anymore. Bunch of idiots. You are smarter than that, too!
