For you 9/11 conspiracy theorists...

The editors of Popular Mechanics have just released a new book, Debunking 9/11 Myths: Why Conspiracy Theories Can't Stand Up to the Facts.

Of course, there are some who simply won't believe the facts no matter what, and for them, don't waste your time reading the book.

Here's the publisher's note:

Quote:
A Groundbreaking, meticulous, and scientific analysis of the 9/11 conspiracy theories
The first conspiracy theories about September 11 began to emerge while the wreckage was still smoldering. Today, nearly five years later, hundreds of books and thousands of Web pages are devoted to the idea that the U.S. government encouraged, permitted, or actually carried out the attacks. These theories claim to be based on hard evidence. But an in-depth investigation by POPULAR MECHANICS--first published in the magazine's March 2005 issue, and now greatly expanded into book form--definitively proves that the evidence most often cited by conspiracy theorists is inaccurate, misinterpreted, or false.

The original article in POPULAR MECHANICS caused a huge groundswell of interest, setting off online debates that continue to this day. Debunking 9/11 Myths expands that investigation to include the 20 most prominent and persistent claims underlying the conspiracy theories, focusing on concrete, physical facts rather than political hypothesizing. Among the issues examined: claims that air traffic control violated standard operating procedures by not immediately intercepting the stricken jets; that the fire caused by the crashes wasn't actually hot enough to melt steel and cause structural damage in the World Trade Center; that the holes in the Pentagon were too small to have been made by a Boeing 757; and that Flight 93 was actually shot down by an Air Force plane.

The fascinating and in-depth findings come from leading experts in all the relevant fields, including aviation, air defense, air traffic control, civil engineering, firefighting, metallurgy, and geology.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)

The "theorists" debunked the stated findings and now someone is debunking them?. What they need to do now is debunk the debunkers that debunked them.

I still maintain it was the citric acid vapor emanating from fast food ketchup packs that over time, compromised the physical structure of the buildings. As many Jews like ketchup, I can't help but hold them responsible.

I rode in on my faithful steed to warn them on September 10 but nobody would listen.

If the book follows in the vein of previous "Popular xxx" "debunkings", I don't expect much except hand-waving. But in all fairness, I will endevour to keep an open mind if someone cares to post any of their arguments. I have not seen any solid arguments yet. I wonder what they have to say about WTC 7?

Funny how Osama was never captured. Funny how the whole thing ends up with the Iranians being the winners, with the Sunni Taliban destroyed in their East and the Socialist Hussein destroyed in the West, with them now with in months of gaining control of Shiite Iraq and its vast oil fields, so that they will end up control over a third of the oil on the planet. Funny how Iranian spy Ahmed Chalibi ended up being a top advisor to Dick Cheney. Funny how Bush and Iran can wave nukes at each other, and the price of oil goes up and down like a magician's yoyo. Couldn't have gone better if they planned it, now could it?

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

What's funny is that I've never seen a magician's yo-yo.
