I was provoked into reading this by Paul Dorby - not directly, it was by his espousing of the view that he felt 9/11 could well have been a conspiracy constructed by the Bush administartion. Calm down son, I felt like saying, but as the book points out, the trouble is that this argument is met with a similar response unless you sit down and coldly examine the evidence and facts. Plus also apply some common sense, not the least of which is just how many people would have to be involved in covering up something like 9/11? I did actually ask this of Paul, to which he repiled "Ah, but suppose none of them knew they were being manipulated and each only played such a small part while being coordinated by some unseen hand?" Okay, then, let's see your evidence of this theory. But there is no evidence really which is why it is a conspiracy. Inn'it?
