And obviously, there’s a “however”, around the next bend, and here it is: I think I know you have contempt (or something akin) for the 9-11 Truth movement, and won’t bother with this except for your “under the breath” comment “gravity” in reference to the collapse of the twin towers. You’re smarter than that. Briefly; let’s get our “facts” straight, by using the proper label – the “official government conspiracy theory”. So bring the same level of disdain and skepticism reserved for ‘crackpot truthers’ to the official conspiracy theory, and the entire government theory will crumble through your fingers … and THEN, you’ll be left with the task of cherry-picking from the “facts” you think you know, and the plausible “known unknown facts”, and in the end, you’ve got yourself a brand new, tailor-made conspiracy theory you can call your own. How did a moron like Bush become the emperor? Marketing savvy. In order for the emperor to declare “war” on something called “terror”, Manhattan need ‘look like’ a war zone … and there need be deaths to avenge. The twin towers were built to withstand impact from TWO commercial airliners, and you observe the free-fall, into footprint, destruction of these buildings (along with the non-impacted building seven) and brush it aside with a snide “gravity” comment. Yeah, from the same government that’s brought you the smash hit “Drone Strike Kills al-Queda and Associates’ Number Three Fighter”, for eight years running, comes “Those Darn Terrorists” starring Haley Mills and Brian Keith, with special guest proxy prop Rudy G. as The Mayor!
