Sixth Anniversary of 9/11 Brings Out Conspiracy Theory Nuts

Sixth Anniversary of 9/11 Brings Out Conspiracy Theory Nuts

The sixth commemoration of the day that shall live in infamy — I'm speaking of 9/11 here — has brought out a strange crowd from a strange world.

I'm talking about the 9/11 truthers, some of whom surrounded Geraldo's show on Saturday night outside the FOX studios in New York chanting: "9/11 was an inside job, 9/11 was an inside job."

By an inside job they mean the U.S. government — Bush and Cheney and Rummy in particular — were in on the planning and execution of the biggest attack on the American homeland in our history.

It's based on the notion that U.S. leaders killed 3,000 of their own citizens to start a war or two or three in the Middle East. Evidence of this plotting is found in all sorts of anomalies in the day of the attack.

All kinds of experts have stepped forward to say this stuff is foolishness, but conspiracy theories don't need facts to sustain them. They just need an army of the gullible to spread the word.
