National Geographic takes on the truthers

By Matthew Hoy on August 31, 2009

I just got finished watching the National Geographic channel’s “9/11: Science and Conspiracy” special.

Personally, I enjoyed the Popular Mechanics special more, but the Nat Geo show wasn’t so much about the science of the 9/11 attacks as it was the reaction of “truthers” to evidence that undermines their theories.

If it wasn’t obvious by now, there is no way to prove to the truthers that their theories are nuts. The simplest argument is, of course, to challenge them to count all of the co-conspirators who had to have been bought off for the conspiracy to work – the number easily reaches into the thousands or tens of thousands.

Yet, to this day no one has come forward to confess and reveal the conspiracy?

It was also amusing to hear some of the narration from the conspirators’ “bible” – the fauxumentary “Loose Change.” In one of the brief snippets played, the narrator ominously warns about the tyrants using 9/11 to take over the country and control the people.

You’d think that if those evil Republicans could’ve managed a conspiracy along the lines of 9/11, then they could’ve managed to stuff a enough ballot boxes in 2006 and 2008 to hold onto power.

  1. please ,obvioulsy you have never looked at the Pentagon site ?without using you brains ? also the 911 national geographic story about flight 93 is the biggest joke of all ;if it was shot down like they said ,they nor you have ever looked at page 10 chapter 1 of the 911 report .. All 11 Commissioners not only lied but closes their eyes and ears when the mayor testified and when ben sliney testified ;do you know who they are ? Even as i write ,i can tell you know absolutely nothing ,being a republican stooge . Send me your real e-mail idiot and we can do this on line ,,, ational Geographic lied and they are irresponsible as a national magazine ,involved with every thing but politics ?how come they did this documentary .?

  2. I agree with Joseph p bell. The truth is coming out; anyone with half a brain realizes the laws of physics don't lie. I don't care how many people you think had to be bought off. The laws of physics stay the same, and the laws of physics don't allow buildings to collapse due to fire at free fall speed without explosives removing the resisting mass in the way of the collapsing material. Especially with building 7, it wasn't even hit by a plane and had very little damage. The BBC reported that it had collapsed before it had, like they new it was going to happen. Just Google it people. If it was just a mix up and they thought it was coming down and just reported it wrong, then why did they later deny it, then loose the tapes, and try to cover it up. This was 9-11; don’t tell me you lost the tapes!! The bin laden confession tapes are obviously not even bin laden. At the Pentagon...Boeing 757's don't fit inside 16 foot wide holes. Wings and tail sections don't crash into windows at 500 mph and vaporize leaving the windows intact. YOU ARE FRIGIN MORON!!!!!!!!!!!! WAKE UP AMERICA! Damn this makes me mad. I could go on and on and on, do some research people before we loose our country!!!! We've already lost 3000 people from that day, which lead to two wars, we have killed over a million plus people in Iraq's, we can't seem to win in Afghanistan. A Country without a military and the world’s super power can't beat them after 8 years. Give me a break. Our troops are protecting the Opium fields so the dangerous Taliban can't get to them. Mean while opium production has increased 12 times since the war begun, which is worth about 500 billion dollars. Fractionally reserve that figure by 10 and you’re talking about a 5 trillion dollar industry. Thousands and thousand of our own guys have died in these wars; the wars are continuing and growing. Obabma is increasing the number of troops over seas on the so called war on terror in Afghanistan. We are loosing our rights left and right in the name of national security, as the New World Order takes over our country and the world. Do you think the economic collapse is by accident? COME ON, this is all designed to destroy this county, and you fools can't even figure out what happened 8 years ago. DAMNN!!

Actually, no serious person is sure what the conservative majority will do here. That's common in these politically charged cases. Meanwhile, literally nobody doubts what the *Democrat-appointed* justices will do. So who is "deeply partisan" again? https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/12/01/supreme-court-abortion-argument-roe-dead/

Doing some research and checked out @TheDispatchFC front page. It turns out the answer to every single one of these is "No." But one doesn't have that simple explanation on the main page. Why?
