Nine Eleven: A Response to Doubting Doug

Kurt Nimmo

April 14, 2006

Doug Thompson, editor and publisher of Capitol Hill Blue, has slipped into warp drive. He believes you and I—those who believe the government was complicit or behind the attacks of nine eleven—are "fruitcakes, lemmings and scam artists." I’m not sure why Thompson has become so enraged at those of us who don’t buy the official version (a fairy tale) and why he assumes we are either crazed tinfoil hatters or snake oil salesmen looking for a quick buck (and believe me, if you’re interested in making a quick buck, you’d have more luck going door-to-door as a hawker of Amway products). His venom leads me to believe something is going on behind the scenes. I find it remarkably strange that Thompson believes his government is capable of setting up a police state, while on the other is unable to grasp the idea that very same government would kill its own citizens, as it has slaughtered thousands and thousands of Iraqis (and millions of Asians before the latest round of serial murder).

Let’s take a look at Thompson’s latest "rant" (as he dubs his column):

"Those who buy into such nutcase causes dishonor the memory of every man, woman and child who died on that horrible day. Even worse, they become willing pawns for the quick-buck scammers who use such events to line their own pockets."

No, Doug, you dishonor them with your inability to think beyond the official, government sanctioned version—a mostly flat wave version that would have never emerged if the families of the victims—in particular, the "Jersey Girls," Kristin Breitweiser, Patty Casazza, Lorie Van Auken, and Mindy Kleinberg—had not leaned on the Bushites. Is Lorie Van Auken a fruitcake? "At first, we widows didn’t want to be seen with conspiracy people. But they kept showing up. They cared more than those supposedly doing the investigating. If you ask me, they’re just Americans, looking for the truth, which is supposed to be our right," Van Auken told New York Magazine. But then maybe Ms. Van Auken is a scam artist like the rest of us determined to get at the truth—dedicated lemmings going over the edge. Dare I say, Doug, you dishonor "the memory of every man, woman and child who died on that horrible day" with your inability to consider the common sense fact nineteen Arab hijackers were unable to violate the laws of physics on nine eleven?

"You all too often find these wackos on web sites that also promote anti-Semitism and hate—the ones that claim the Holocaust didn’t happen and blame everything bad that happens on some vast 'Zionist’ conspiracy."

Okay, let’s face it—Doug Thompson is a neocon, or at least he comes off sounding like one, regardless of his previous and admirable rants against the squashing of the Constitution and the emergent police state. Doug, check out the Scholars for 9/11 Truth, all respected professionals, and not an anti-Semite among them. Not all skeptics believe nine eleven was a "Zionist" conspiracy and it is remarkably unfair, even illogical and desperate, for you to claim such a thing. It’s a bankrupt accusation and really doesn’t stick anymore. You may want to consult your new friends, the neocons, for more effective talking points.

"Check out the web sites that promote the various, and ridiculous conspiracy theories surrounding 9/11 and you will find that just about all of them ask for money. The same is true for the so-called 'news’ sites that support these outlandish conspiracy fantasies."

I notice Capitol Hill Blue is teeming with banner ads for corporate interest such as Verizon, the Dish Network, Best Western, TiVo, and others. I bet you put those up for free. Let’s face it, Doug. It costs money to run a website. Some of us write about other things besides nine eleven and as journalists we’d like to get paid for it. I have a donation button on my blog. I’d like to write political commentary and get paid for it like the hacks over at the Washington Post and the New York Times. I don’t consider myself a scam artist for putting up a donation button. I wonder how much of that lucrative banner income works its way to your bank account, Mr. Thompson.

"All link to the same, discredited "sources" for their claims. All claim to have "evidence" that is nothing but flights of fancy. All, in my opinion, are scams. I’ve spent weeks searching through these web sites and read all the links to so-called "evidence" and I have yet to find one, single, shred of verifiable information that provides any proof that our government planned or executed the attacks."

And Lee Harvey Oswald killed JFK all on his lonesome. You’re really showing your ignorance here, Doug. Of course there is no direct evidence the government was complicit in nine eleven. It doesn’t work that way. Speaking of JFK, maybe you saw Oliver Stone’s film on the assassination. If you did, you may remember David Ferrie, played by Joe Pesci, telling Jim Garrison: "Who did the president, who killed Kennedy, f— man! It’s a mystery! It’s a mystery wrapped in a riddle inside an enigma! The f—in’ shooters don’t even know! Don’t you get it?" Doug, you don’t get it. Governments cover up their tracks and shift blame on patsies. I’d suggest you do a bit of history reading. Begin with Nicco Machiavelli. After you read Nicco, search for Operation Northwoods via Google.

"Our government failed on many levels to respond to information that might have prevented the attacks but incompetence does not prove a conspiracy. America has a long, tainted history of getting caught with its pants down."

A couple weeks ago, after I wrote about Thompson’s first column dissing nine eleven truth seekers, I received an email assuring me that Thompson is a Republican. Indeed, he thinks and writes like a Republican—and a Democrat, since there ain’t a lick of difference betwixt the two. It wasn’t incompetence that made NORAD stand down or the towers collapse like a textbook demolition. Incompetence didn’t "pull" Building Seven. Incompetence didn’t make airline wreckage (including titanium) at the Pentagon vaporize in thin air while bodies were supposedly left intact enough to get DNA from. It didn’t make Flight 93 disappear in a ten foot hole in Pennsylvania.

"A jury in Alexandria, Virginia, this week heard the cockpit voice tapes of United Flight 93, a hijacked airliner bound for the U.S. Capitol in Washington. The actions of passengers who knew they were going to die prevented the plane from reaching its destination. The passengers of Flight 93 are some of the true heroes of September 11."

Doug, is it inconceivable these tapes are forgeries, same as the cell phone calls made at 25,000 feet inside an airliner going 500 miles per hour? At the time, it was technically impossible to place a cell phone call—and these were said to be cell phone calls—from a speeding aircraft at that altitude. AT&T admits as much and calls the ten cell phone supposedly made from Flight 93 a "fluke" (more like a miracle). According to American Airline and Qualcomm, the technology for cell phone transmission at high altitude was first available this year, not 2001. How do you explain these cell phone calls? I have a few ideas, but you’d probably call me a nutcase, a fruitcake, a lemming and a scam artist.

"In another month, a film about Flight 93 opens around the country. It will serve as a painful reminder of what really happened on that day—a true story far different from the pitiful conspiracy theories advanced by those who wish the milk the tragedy for their own benefit."

Actually, it makes perfect sense for Hollywood to make a version of the fairy tale you believe as gospel truth. Meanwhile, those of us worried about the future of America will "milk the tragedy" for our "own benefit" while the stockholders at whatever movie corporation producing this Brothers Grimm fantasy will go penniless.

"Later this year, Oliver Stone, the top conspiracy-theorist in this country, releases his own film on the World Trade Center. But Stone, who could find a conspiracy in the rising of the sun, could not find one from that fateful day and his film will be, instead, a tribute to the first responders."

Ah, Oliver Stone. I figured we’d get around to him. Most Americans believe there was a conspiracy behind the assassination of JFK, a fact well portrayed in Stone’s film. I don’t recall Stone finding conspiracies "in the rising of the sun" or elsewhere. As for those first responders Stone will make his latest film about, a few of them have problems with the official version you embrace so adamantly. For instance, Louie Cacchioli, one of the first firefighters to enter the South Tower, reported hearing explosions. "On the last trip up a bomb went off. We think there were bombs set in the building," he said. In fact, FDNY fire fighters are under a gag order to not discuss the explosions they heard, felt and saw. But don’t worry, Doug. I don’t think Stone will include their stories in his "tribute" (and of course, unlike us scam artists, he will not make a cent off this epic).

"Those who prey on fear and paranoia to promote their kooky conspiracy theories dishonor those passengers on Flight 93. They dishonor the innocent victims who died on that day and the first responders who lost their lives trying to save those victims…. And they dishonor America."

Few of us are preying "on fear and paranoia" to promote "kooky conspiracy theories," unless you consider physics kooky science (jet fuel cannot melt steel—although it does in Bushzarro world, where Doug Thompson lives, a realm where the world is flat and cell phones work miles above cell phone towers). All we want is the truth, Doug—and what you and the Bushites are doling out is certainly not the truth. Dare I say, you should be ashamed of yourself for not only buying into the official fairy tale but dissing those of us out here asking questions as self-serving flim-flam artists.

Since we will not shut up and go away until we get the truth, I suggest you turn your attention to other subjects over at Capitol Hill Blue, subjects not likely to offend Verizon and Best Western.
