DENVER — Libertarian presidential hopeful Mary Ruwart plays footsie with the “9/11 Truth” conspiracy theorists in an interview with Liberty, and won’t back away when Reason’s David Weigel questions her about it:
I think we don’t know because there are so many unanswered questions. That’s why I think we should have investigated it as a forensic site. If I was the commander-in-chief that’s exactly what I would have done, so we could prevent it in the future.
“Unanswered questions”? Read the Popular Mechanics debunking of the Truther claims. The whole “controlled demolition/inside job” nonsense peddled by the Truthers is a senseless rejection of Occam’s Razor. If (a) two hijacked jumbo jets crash into two buildings and then (b) the buildings collapse, how hard is it to accept that (a) was the cause of (b)?
Ah, but that’s just what they want us to think!
“Unanswered questions,” indeed. Pass the tinfoil …
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
