More on 9/11 

A good summary of the facts and fiction around the 9/11 skepticism, and how whoever put the attack together also apparently intended to discredit skeptics through a variety of techniques:


Very interesting, especially on the apparently intentional misleading on the "false" Pentagon attack (it ostensibly really was hit by a commercial jetliner, but the "clue in plain sight" of an impossible-for-the-alleged pilot manuever of a 270-spiral into the section of the building most likely to minimize ground deaths is the real hoax).

This report sifts through all the evidence, and concludes that the biggest lie is about the WTC buildings themselves, and *not* the Pentagon. It concludes that the buildings did not collapse due to impacts and fire...


Read it and judge for yourself. Regardless of your opinion, it's weird stuff. If you prefer just to read the "short list", then check out this page on the "anomalies" of 9/11:

ChappaquiDICK Part three...truth will out 

Domo arigato to the Major Dojo for this one:

Secret Service Agents confirm the Dick's inebriation during his now-infamous drunting incident...

A written report from Secret Service agents guarding Vice President Dick Cheney when he shot Texas lawyer Harry Whittington on a hunting outing two weeks ago says Cheney was "clearly inebriated" at the time of the shooting.

Agents observed several members of the hunting party, including the Vice President, consuming alcohol before and during the hunting expedition, the report notes, and Cheney exhibited "visible signs" of impairment, including slurred speech and erratic actions, the report said.

According to those who have read the report and talked with others present at the outing, Cheney was drunk when he gunned down his friend and the day-and-a-half delay in allowing Texas law enforcement officials on the ranch where the shooting occurred gave all members of the hunting party time to sober up.

We talked with a number of administration officials who are privy to inside information on the Vice President's shooting "accident" and all admit Secret Service agents and others saw Cheney consume far more than the "one beer' he claimed he drank at lunch earlier that day."This was a South Texas hunt," says one White House aide. "Of course there was drinking. There's always drinking. Lots of it."

The funny part is that Cheney actually looks a lot worse in his lie than the drunken truth. And this would be true even if the truth hadn't come out. Look at it this way: would you rather have a guy who accidently shot you because he dropped his gun/drawers (to pee--we're STILL not *that* kind of blog) while hunting, or a guy sober as can be who shoots you point-blank just because he can't help shooting?

Cheney of course lied. What this story shows is that lying is reflexive, instinctive and endemic for him. Even when the truth will make more sense--and in this case be less disturbing--he can't help himself. He has to lie. Lying is his "centerness", his "focus", his "Zen". The Zen of Lying. Cheney and the US, 2006.

Truth's a comin', baby. Stick around.
