The 9/11 Meme War

A superb site, the 911review.com is, and while I will definitely have to read this reveiling site more thoroughly and write a longer piece about it, I will start by just giving you a few quotes:
Trojan Horses

The 9/11/01 attack is a complex psychological operation carefully designed to conceal the truth, in spite of numerous obvious red flags in the fraudulent official story. As such it relies on the dissemination of memes that overpower rational consideration of the evidence. One of the most important memes is the idea that all people who question the basic tenets of the official story are loony conspiracy theorists, whose ideas are not worthy of consideration. Part of the construction of this meme was to make the attack so audacious that even a straightforward accounting of the basic facts sounds too outrageous to possibly be true.

The ideas that the Twin Towers were destroyed by explosive demolition and that top-level administration officials were involved in the planning and execution of the attack are so painful that most people reflexively reject them, even if that means ignoring mountains of evidence. Nevertheless the perpetrators run the risk that these ideas will gain currency and begin to be examined with some objectivity if the loony conspiracy theory meme fails to maintain its hold.

An effective tool for reinforcing this meme is the introduction of theories that that have no basis in evidence, such as the idea that no planes hit the towers. The association of these ideas with the careful research of investigators in the 9/11 Truth Movement stands to set back the cause of awakening the larger public to the facts of the attack.

With a rundown of 9/11 sites to trust or not, and some of the gravest errors, together with a closer look at the Left gatekeepers and both the Myth and what really happened, this site is a treasure trove.

But can it be trusted? :-)
