OWS and 9/11 conspiracy theories

November 21st, 2011 · 5 Comments


Online sites are often less convincing than they should be. The one above is good. In any case, the literature in book form, often much clearer, is overwhelming: Debunking 9/11 Debunking: An Answer to Popular Mechanics and Other Defenders of the Official Conspiracy Theory

is a good response to the supposed refutations of the 9/11 ‘conspiracy theories’. I have no agenda on this issue, and was delayed in my understanding of this question for several years after 9/11. In fact, I wrote an Amazon review on the day after 9/11 close to seeing through the coming cover story, but the rapid appearance of left denial confused me for several years. The problem was a simple set of book priorities and funds. When I finally decided to simply order some 9/11 books at Amazon, my confusion disappeared almost at once. You wake up in embarrassement at the way the propaganda fooled you.
I keep harping on this in the context of the OWS because the question has already crippled the left, crippled Chomsky, and others. Get clear on the issue. You don’t have to go the whole way: it is enough to see that the evidence points beyond the official story. You don’t have to buy into any theories after that: just the devastating evidence of covert complicity, whatever the particulars.
You can’t have a left movement that is still fooled on this question. As the OWs gets ambitious to, what, take on Congress, the price of admission will be joining the pack of lies here. Let’s see if this movement can survive this test.
