"Truthers" Display Their Ignorance

(Hat-tip to Jenn for pointing me in this direction)

If one wants to see a display of “truther” stupidity, one need only go here.

The first post at the above link  sends you to an LA Times picture of the CCTV fire in Beijing earlier this year.

However, as I pointed out in a previous article, there are a few details “truthers” leave out. The details they leave out is that, unlike WTC 7, the CCTV fire was fought (source), and the CCTV Tower in Beijing did NOT suffer SEVERE structural damage before catching fire, while TC 7 did (reference ).

The first post at said forum also repeats the freefall lie and says that there was a piddling fire in WTC 7, when, in point of fact, one of the firefighters, Hayden, said there was a (emphasis is mine) “HEAVY body of fire in there.” (source).

The fourth post here claims that all three buildings collapsed in a neat little pile. This is, of course, a lie. If you go here, you will see a diagram of the debris drop zone-as you can see, the zone covers about 2-3 square blocks. That’s a strange definition of a neat little pile.

I have also noticed that the 9-11 “Truth” Movement has often claimed thermite/thermate was used, while ignoring the fact that thermite/thermate is an INCINDIARY, NOT an explosive. There’s a difference. Furthermore, as I pointed out here, despite Steven Jones’ claim of finding uncommon elements indicating thermite/thermate use, there are plenty plausible of explanations for said elements that do not involve the use of thermite/thermate. After all, heat is a catalyst for many chemical reactions and we know the WTC was smoldering for quite some time. In point of fact, every single one of those elements can be accounted for as elements that are used in constructing a building (source source).

vic1I have noticed that “truthers” have yet to explain how you’re going to get sufficient explosives to bring down two 110-story buildings and one 47-story building into said buildings without getting caught, when there are people there 24/7 (hint: it was called the WORLD Trade Center for a reason). Did the Starship Enterprise beam the explosives into the WTC?

vic2While we’re at it, I noticed “truthers” didn’t have a problem with the official version when the WTC was bombed in 1993, the Khobar Towers bombing 1996, the Embassy bombings in 1998, or the attack on the U.S.S. Cole in 2000. So, if Bush is to blame for 9/11/01, who’s to blame for the bombings that occurred under the Clinton administration? Did Bush use a time-turner to go back in time and set those up? Oh, wait, this is real life, not a Harry Potter film.
