Eight years ago, nineteen men killed three thousand Americans.
Never forget. Never again.
First, the inspirational.
Andrew Klavan posts this video about what happened eight years ago.
And now, the ridiculous.
Charlie Sheen had a talk with President Obama (evidently Obama loves Sheen's show "Two And A Half Men").
Well, not really:
So Charlie Sheen recently penned a fictitious conversation between himself and President Obama – one in which he questions our Commander-in-chief on the big 9/11 cover up. Yes, the star of Scary Movie 3 – and Scary Movie 4 – believes that the Bush/Cheney regime were behind the attack, and feels that our current President should investigate immediately, in an effort to answer a "bottomless warren of unanswered questions surrounding that day..."
There are a couple of things in the comments that caught my attention. Here's the first:
" [...Sheen] said that he believed the towers were brought down by a controlled demolition. If you ask him what about the planes that we all saw fly into the buildings he’d respond: "It was David Copperfield trickery; clearly he now works for Halliburton."
For a moment let's entertain Sheen’s delusion. In a controlled demolition you have strip the building (where the explosives are to be set) down to the steel beams. So Sheen expects us to believe employees within the Twin Towers went to work and dismissed the stripped down drywall, shear wall and exposed steel frame with explosives strapped to it with wires running down to the street level to the detonator. Uh huh.
There are eyewitnesses to the planes hitting the Towers and explosions at that level. There's a debunking article in Popular Mechanics. And those two planes - not to mention the one that hit the Pentagon and the one (United 93) that was meant for the White House? Did they hijack those planes and fly them into those buildings just for the hell of it?
The big one was this:
" [...] the truth is that nobody in government is capable of keeping anything secret. If the government (re: Bush) was responsible for 9/11 we would have found out about it by October 11, 2001 because somebody would have blabbed by then."
Good point. And consider this: a Democrat administration has been in office since January. If President Bush - or ANYONE in the previous administration - had been in on what happened eight years ago, wouldn't we have heard about it by now?
Had to get up way too early to take Laila in for an inspection check-up.
I'll let you know.
Never forget. Never again.
Be seeing you.

thank you for always posting common sense sanity in a world full of malarkey. Why anyone would see a drug and prostitute using cheap legacy celebrity as an expert on such matters is deluded.
