Outrage of the Day
On September 11, both TNT and CNN Headline News chose to air a sick commercial for a moonbat conspiracy web site, claiming that the World Trade Center was blown up on purpose with controlled detonations: Why would TNT think this was a good day to air this?
Bad language at link
The conspiracy gang involved, reopen911.org is bankrolled by one Jimmy Walter, a trust-fund slacker who inherited a large fortune and is now sqandering it on various green causes and lunatic conspiracy theories.
From Patriots for Bush
CNN and TNT, two networks which I will now boycott for life, decided to air an ad on September 11, 2005 for a group of people that are mentally ill. They claim that bombs were planted throughout the World Trade Center on orders from President Bush, a devout Christian.
Never mind the fact that investigators did chemical tests to determine if explosives were used AND FOUND NOTHING BUT JET FUEL.
Never mind that Al Qaeda claimed responsibility and we have a video tape of Osama Bin Laden celebrating the success of his attacks.
Never mind the fact that two commercial aircraft were VIDEOTAPED by private citizens and aired live on TV networks flying into the World Trade Center Towers.
Never mind the laws of physics that make it clear that the heat from the fire caused the collapse.
Never mind the fact that engineers did a thorough investigation and came to the scientifically based conclusion that the Twin Towers buckled under the intense heat.
The people who make these claims are lunatics who need to be institutionalized, not televised! They are left wing fanatics who use lies and distortions to push a crackpot conspiracy theory that no credible scientist agrees with.
These same crackpots claim that Rudolf Giuliani is a murderer, they also make the ignorant claim that Muslim Extremists were not responsible for the 7/7 attacks in London.
What in the hell was CNN and TNT thinking airing these people on any day of the year? Do they even care about the victims of 9/11? Apparently not.
Turner Network Television...Ted Turner is a socialist of the first degree and a big fan of Fidel Castro. I don't know how much Billionaire Ted has to do with the network these days, but apparently his legacy lives on. I see why he got together with Hate America Jane.
CNN is an anti-American organization. They probably ran this ad for free as a "Public Service Announcement."
Conspiracy theorist have to make a living too, you know. ( sarcasm tag is on ).
See if you can get Jimmy Walker to send me a check ~ made out to Muawiyah ~ in large dollar value ~ maybe 3 mil ~ that'd be good.
we need to have an organized response to this...phone calls, faxes, e-mails....
I'd be the last person to defend CNN, but if they only showed in NYC, do we know that this was not the doing of the cable company.
My cable company (Comcast), for example, constantly slips in promos for CNN right on FNC.
The media is the enemy of America...period. With everything they've got their paws on, I can't even turn to sports or entertainment without having their opinions and ideals shoved down my throat.
Forget the Democrats; they are powerless without their press-secretaries. The fact that a very small minority of Leftist in this country control so much of the dissemination of information is scary.
Debris and wreckage maybe? Tests for explosive residue are normally conducted on material that has been, shall we say, traumatized.
Thanks for the post and information.
Food for the lazy mind, "The Vast Right Wing Conspiracy" syncophants.
I clicked on the first ad at the top of the page as was greeted by the words . . ."Already $20 raised . . .33 voted and counted.
What great fundraisers they are!!!!!!!
I am sorry, I am laughing so hard I can barely type this!!!
I understand that...I wasn't trying to be wise-guy.
Nor am I buying into an internal explosion theory.
When they collapsed, it was said the concrete was pulverized into powder.
Where would they even start to test ? with which debris, where?
and why would they even look/test for internal explosives ?
if the jet fuel supposedly melted the steel to weaken the structure etc...wouldn't it also have melted the explosive residue ?

Ted Turner confirms Russian television network buy
Turner Ventures International, an investment vehicle formed by CNN Founder Ted Turner, confirmed it has reached an agreement with Vladimir Guzinsky, the owner of Russia's only independent television network, to buy a share of NTV.
Pending the successful negotiation of a similar contract with Gazprom and Gazprom-Media, which took over NTV on April 2, the agreement would ensure the future of the Russian television networks NTV, TNT and NTV+ as free and independent media companies, Turner Ventures said.
"While we are disappointed with the recent disruptive developments regarding NTV, we look forward with enthusiasm to finalizing an agreement with Gazprom and Gazprom-Media that will ensure the ongoing independence of NTV," Turner said in a written statement. "In earlier negotiations with Gazprom, we both agreed that no one party should have control of NTV and we are pursuing that course. Our goal is to secure the financial underpinnings of the company and establish a mechanism for growing the business in order to strengthen NTV's prominence and scope throughout Russia."

Not all the concrete was pulverized, this is obvious from the images of the site.
Explosive residue is by definition material that would survive the explosion process itself, which is considerably hotter the jet fuel fire. The fire does not make it undectable or all such tests would be useless.
There are a number of reasons for testing for explosive residue. For instance, could the terrorists have placed a cache of explosives in the building, to be detonated simultaneously with the air attack? Were they carrying explosives aboard the airplanes? Keep in mind that Muslim terrorists actually did use explosives against the WTC in 1993. Additionally, after so many years of dealing with the conspiracy industry, the authorities would realize immediately that these accusations would be made and they would take the appropriate measures. Beyond all that, it is simply routine to test for explosives any time there is a fatal fire, especially if a structural collapse is involved.
You aren't denying that Bush and Osama planned this together are you? Why do you think the CIA was so confused? Why do you think the CIA and FBI are being blamed? To distract attention from W and Osama.
You are aware, aren't you that Osama owned construction companies? He and Halliburton are splitting the work in Afghanistan and Iraqi and will be getting most of the work in the USA to rebuild after the hurricane they caused.
Wake up, man! It is right before your eyes, plain as day!
They tested as they were falling. Best time to do test of that sort. Keeps data current.
If you are serious, you have a problem with logic, facts, common decency, and (like most conspiracy theory dupes) the limits of your own authority.
Nobody will take your word for any of this, either provide the facts to back it up or stop wasting your time and energy.
Ok, checked your forum replies. Please use the /sarc tag or something similar in the future. You know there are people who would make exactly these assertions in all seriousness and there are even some who would do it here.
