"Of course! Collapse. Which says what? That the buildings couldn't take the impacts or the fires or whatever. Or at least that the basic problem was the buildings. And that's that. It doesn't matter now if ten thousand scientists sign on to the towers falling as a result of demolition explosives. It doesn't matter a bit. Until they make a full-scale, frontal attack to refute the word 'collapse,' forget it: they're not going to move public opinion one inch."



Charles Colson  was wrong.  You don't need to grab people by the balls. Just get the words right; hearts and minds will quickly follow.



Thanks goodness for the Internet.                 



The weasels who did the JFK assassination had their one slip: somehow a spectator got footage of the crucial moment; without it the alternative theories of the crime would never have prospered. The weasels who did 9-11 had theirs: the Internet, which in 2001 was nothing compared to the phenomenon that it is now. And here again we can make a guess about their identity. They must have all been over fifty, from conservative backgrounds, none from technology or telecommunications, people who still treated computers as advanced typewriters and had no vision of the rising technology.



Internet allowed truthers around the world to hook up through webpages, blogs, and YouTube. And it allowed them to spread word of their investigations to a global audience. It's pleasant to think that, for a while at least, this must have ruined an evening brandy or two amongst the weasels. They had known that the burning towers would be filmed from every angle; that anyone who worked in controlled demolition would immediately see something very different from other people; that architects would scratch their heads and engineers consult their computer models.
