    To be clear, I don't endore these people's pshycotic tinfoil hat theories, but thought it was an interesting way for a journalist to look at them. The people quoted, including Morgan Reynolds, cheif economist in the Dept. of Labor until 2002 under George W. Bush, who believe that plans never actually hit the World Trade Center towers strike me as completely Looney Toons.

    Good gosh.

    I can kinda see where people might say a plane didn't hit the Pentagon. But saying no planes hit the WTC is completely and utterly batshit crazy.

    Folks, we're all stupid for overlooking the fact that David Copperfield is actually at the center of this conspiracy. If he can make a statue disappear, do you think he'd have any problems with a handful of massive buildings and thousands of people?

    Quick, someone stop him! He's moved on to the Empire State building!

    Isn't one of the obvious holes in the guy's seemingly meticulous argument that there are records of cell phone calls from people on the planes saying they were hijacked? How can someone say "There were no hijackers" with evidence to the contrary?

    I love the "we don't need a theory" answer to the question of where the planes (and people) that didn't crash into the Pentagon and Pennsylvania went.

    People who claim the attack never happened are insane. If you want to have a conspiracy theory about how they were pulled off, fine (weirdos), but to say it didn't happen is just too wild. Four airplanes don't exist any more. More than 2,000 people don't exist anymore. Two really big buildings I've actually been inside don't exist anymore.

    Never happened.

    And more than six million people just never actually existed during the whole Holocaust.
