(Conservatives may not remember what happened on that day. They've memorized the "Don't you remember Sept. 11?" talking point to use as a club against people who think a War on Terror should be fought against terrorists. (You should also have a plan beyond "Get lucrative re-building and military contracts for Repug cronies.") But Republicans seem to have forgotten that Americans got mad at being attacked. Why can't they see that people in, say, Iraq or, say, Afghanistan might also get upset at being attacked? Add invasion and occupation into the equation. Are we even yet? Have we evened the score for Sept. 11 yet? How many Muslims equals one American?)
I'm not sure what to think about Sept. 11 conspiracy talk. I remember thinking at the time, "Wow! They sure knew Osama bin Laden did it pretty fast!" and then never seeing anything that really showed how they came to that conclusion. And then there's the short-selling of airline stock that made a lot of money for somebody, a story that disappeared from the Right-Wing Corporate Media pretty quickly.
Anyway, this post has a lot of links that I want to look at. I have listened to people debunking Sept. 11, 2001, theories, and I never find them entirely convincing either. A lot of talking points that don't quite do it.
