Add Joe Bageant to the ranks of the 9/11 skeptics

Joe publishes a letter that wonders at his apparent dismissal of 9/11 conspiracy theorists. The letter says, in part:

The staging of terrorist and false flag attacks is encrusted in the globalist's agenda. It serves the international banks, energy industry, defense industry, and above all those who want to consolidate power. The Gulf of Tonkin, Lavon Affair, U.S.S. Liberty attack, and Operation Northwoods should be enough evidence to convince people that our government (and others) can and will stage false attacks to sway public opinion. They will kill their own citizens.


Joe assures the reader: "Believe me, I will deal with it [9/11] directly when the time presents itself and an increasing number of facts can no longer be denied by the American public."

Mr. Bageant also has a new essay up, Dispatch from the Chinese Landfill

The majority of america are utterly apathetic to the conspiracy claims of September 11th, and I think this is largely due to the whole thing being lumped in with alien landings, lizards in Buckingham Palace etc. The problem is also compounded by some accusations about the day itself, outlandish statements, backed up by no facts whatsoever that dilute and confuse the basics, that the buildings did not fall as they should have done, that jet fuel could not melt struts, the lack of a plane at all at the Pentagon. You don't have to be a scientist to see the glaring inconsistancies in the official statements. Yet, the more people who are not concerned with the facts and more so the controversy will continue to throw these weird theories around and make it difficult for real questions and answers to be heard.

Hey Shem.

Yes, we're a apathetic lot, benumbed by consumerism and the pursuit of some land of oz called "happiness." I don't really have any hope of the most people waking up the 9/11 truth. I post such information for the benefit of a handful of unknown individuals that might begin to question their spoonfed information, which can lead to further liberation.
I agree. It's not in our nature to simply give in just because the majority don't see yet. To give in would be an affront to the very core of my being. Yes, it's frustrating to see other people wander through their lives unconcerned at their surroundings, but that does not change who I am, in fact it makes no difference whatsoever.

Seeds, Bruce. Hopefully they'll grow.
