Can’t believe U.S. would unleash terror on its citizens? They tried

They wanted to murder civilians in major American cities, blow up a plane painted to look like a civilian airliner, sink a military ship, and even fake an attack on their own naval base.
The year was 1962. The creators of the plan were the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the United States of America. The goal was to get the public on board for an invasion of Cuba.
And it’s all a matter of public record. It’s not a conspiracy theory, it’s a fact.
The Joint Chiefs also discussed the possibility that disaster might strike Mercury astronaut John Glenn in his bid to become the first American to orbit the earth. If Glenn died in an accident, they were prepared to fake evidence that the rocket had been sabotaged by Fidel Castro using some kind of radio interference.
Unfortunately for them, the flight went off without a hitch and Glenn lived. Continue reading

Think plausible conspiracy theories are easy to invent? Give it a try

October 7, 2010

By Craig McKee

So you think there’s a case for the official 9/11 story, eh? The conspiracy theorists are the kooks, and all the evidence supports what Bush and the media have been telling us all along.
If you think there is a case to be made for the government’s version of a “conspiracy theory” then I invite you to make it. Tell us how you know it happened just as the 9/11 Commission says. How do you know, other than because TV said so?
I can make this challenge very confidently because I know what’ll happen. If you’re open-minded, you’ll realize there is precious little to back up the official story. Each element of it can be dismantled relatively easily. If you’re not, you’ll just brush off anything that challenges you.
I’ve heard the sceptics say that you can take any event and make it seem like a conspiracy if you want. All you have to do is to twist a few facts and suppositions around and you can make it seem like a conspiracy took place. Continue reading

Talking to people about 9/11 is an exercise in frustration

Truth only reveals itself when we give up all preconceived ideas – Shoseki

Are you ever tempted to lose it because people don’t think exactly like you do?
Really? Never?
I get it, we’re civilized. We don’t behave that way. We celebrate the right of everyone to believe whatever they choose to. We respect everyone’s right to say what they want – and think what they want.
Well, if that’s true, why am I gritting my teeth as I write this? The truth is that sometimes all that polite “agree-to-disagree” crap makes me want to look into primal scream therapy.
As you can tell by the majority of articles posted on this blog over the past two months, I’m pretty interested in the subject of 9/11. No, not obsessed. Continue reading

How could Flight 77 have caused bizarre pattern of interior Pentagon damage on 9/11?

October 2, 2010

By Craig McKee

I’ve devoted my last three posts to the question of whether American Airlines Flight 77 could have hit the Pentagon on the morning of Sept. 11. Several facts have been established clearly:

  • There was an almost total absence of plane wreckage outside (or even inside) the Pentagon after it was allegedly hit by the plane
  • The hole in the building was far too small for the 757 to pass through it without leaving large pieces of wreckage outside
  • There was no damage to the lawn despite the plane’s engines hanging 15 feet below the rest of the fuselage
  • The Flight Data Recorder showed that the plane was too high to have knocked over lamp posts or hit the Pentagon (the last second of data before the “crash” was mysteriously absent), and the Continue reading
