9/11 conspiracies brought to you by the History Channel.
The History Channel put together an interesting show called The 9/11 Conspiracies: Fact or Fiction. The premise of the show describes each and every conspiracy brought to you by a Billy Ocean favorite Alex Jones, the directors of Loose Change, and various other believers of government involvement in the terrorist attacks.
While it did do a great job in attempting to debunk each and every theory the problem was the time allotted for each. I read some early reviews of the show and most seemed to praise it as a great threat to the 9/11 truth movement. There were some issues I had with the presentation.
Given that there are so many theories the show tried to debunk all of them within a relatively short amount of time. The expert response to each claim was brief and didn’t go into as much detail as I’d like. Watching it I could imagine some nut job sitting at home saying “yeah…but” through out each segment. I understand they could probably spend an entire hour on the idea that towers were the result of a controlled explosion, but I’m of the mindset that all evidence must be made clear to it’s audience.
That being said it’s a great resource in case one encounters someone who tries to sway you into believing that the government was behind the attacks. Some theories I’ve never heard of before the show, such as the claim that the cell phone calls made from United 93 were faked, which is despicable when you think about it. If interested I suggest you check it out.
