Each conspiracy argument is countered by a variety of experts in the fields of engineering, intelligence and the military. The program also delves into the anatomy of such conspiracies and how they grow on the Internet.

Are you sure they are debunking? The promo pissed me off how positive it was toward the conspiracy.

Rosie O’Donnell said that 9/11 was the first time that fire melted steel, so she thinks there is something else that happened on 9/11 to cause the collapse of the World Trade Center. Rosie knows her physics so certainly we should believe her.

Lord have mercy.

How does she think they make steel in the first place, with magic?

I set my DVR at 10 am this morning. I was watching a program on History Channel about Osama timeline this morning--which is the same timeline and details in the Path to 9/11 movie. Very good program, in case anyone is interested. I'm not sure if it has been on before but it is well worth watching.

Perhaps as a way to bait in “truthers” and get them to friggin see reality for two seconds. Not that people that brain damaged can be helped.

I don't know if you were watching the same promo as me but one sound bite was of the ex-CIA agent (can't remember his name)saying that they didn't know what they are talking about. I'll be watching and I'll let you know.

An expose (if this is what this is) will not make the slightest difference to the Orwellian named "truthers."

The definition of a delusional person is that he/she/it is totally immune to logic, science, fact, or reason. In other words, your typical DU, HuffPo or Kos poster:

Awesome.

Have you ever noticed how the left always includes the word "truth" in their propaganda? An Inconvenient TRUTH, The TRUTH about 9/11...just like the Soviet newspaper Pravda, the Russian word for "truth." With the word "truth" in it, it sounds more convincing to the unsuspecting layman, and that's how they hope to get people to believe this stuff. Otherwise even the average joe would probably blow it off as nonsense right off the bat.

No amount of truth, facts and logic will ever get through to the dim bulbs who insist on believing such nonsense -- or dissuade the charltans who make their living selling crap to the gullible.

The attacks of 9/11/01 were the most photographed and videotaped in real time of any comparable event in history. There were literally millions, if not billions of eyewitnesses. The photographic and video evidence was taken in real time by hundreds, if not thousands of individuals from a variety of walks of life, and a variety of nationalities. And still there is a sizeable number of dolts who do not believe what they, themselves, saw with their own eyes that day.

What that says to me is this: Stupid appears to be the default human condition.

Do they really need to delve into it to know?? Soros has been feeding (sponsoring) these theories for years. After all, it’s all about divide and conquer you know! Keep the masses, or more correctly the leftists, distracted with these theories and they won’t question what is really going on.

A missile hit the Pentagon??? Not an airliner? All those airliner parts that were recovered were moved there after the attack I assume??

Rosie O’Donnell said that 9/11 was the first time that fire melted steel,

To be fair to Rosie, and she needs all the help she can get, she merely garbled the "Truthers" argument that the temperature of jet fuel burning in air is not enough to melt structural steel. And that's probably true, but it is enough to weaken the steel. Weakened steel, combined with all the structural damage, is what brought the towers down, plus possibly another effect called a eutectic reaction. This includes the shorter one, WTC 7, which was damaged by the fall of (one of) the twin towers and also burned.

I’d still like to see Rosie go back in time and explain that one to Union Army Soldiers who during Sherman’s march to the sea made “Sherman Neckties” by heating metal train rails and bending them around telegraph poles. She can explain to them why they can’t do what they’re doing as they only had wood to soften the metal. They would probably look at each other and wonder who is that guy.

just like the Soviet newspaper Pravda, the Russian word for "truth."

And just as the Russians said about Pravda, "there is no pravda in Pravda", there is no truth in the moonbats' Truth.

It won't matter. The Bermuda triangle has been fully debunked numerous times, as has the Roswell UFO, alien abductions, crop circles, crystals and pyramid power, and a host of other fantasies. The true believers walk away untouched by human reason.

No you won’t prevent numbskulls from believing whatever nonsense they want to, but you can counter the tendencies for these delusions from percolating into the public conscientiousness.

The Kennedy conspiracy theories are believed by a substantial fraction of people, most people who have heard of Sacco and Vanzetti think, contrafactually, that they were railroaded.

Remember when no one was sure where Bush was hours after the initial plane crash?

They flew him back to NYC and in the basement of the Towers he detonate the explosion that took the buildings down.

So there are multiple videos of building 7 going down in a matter of a few seconds, collapsing just like an intentionally demolished building would go down..

A 50 story large office complex gone in about 5 seconds...

That fast... Just like that...

Now can someone explain the physics of how it's possible for an entire building to collapse in a matter of seconds, when there was no major damage to the building. How does the entire building fall at exactly the same moment?

How does that happen without intentional, internal weakening of the support columns, that couldn't have been done by the small amount of damage to that building...

Especially when it's never happened before to a steel skyscraper in human history...

Make sure you've seen the vast amount of footage available of this almost instantly collapsed 50 story building..

I was perusing the discount book table last weekend in the 'political conspiracy' section and there are a heap of loony left books that think the whole Muslim jihad thing is made up by the evil Karl Rove/Dick Cheney/Haliburton/Bush family. Just reading the outlines on the inside cover gave me chills that anyone can be this delusional. I suppose I should have been encouraged by the fact they were in the discount aisle and didn't find an audience.

I watched part of the show while I was recording it. It seemed to do a pretty good job of debunking the conspiracy nuts. Most of the nutjobs seemed to be so involved in their own delusions they could never admit the truth, and some of them seemed totally deranged. The kids who made some conspiracy documentary admitted that they had to keep editing their film as one lie after another was disproved, and they almost seemed to realize they were wrong, but were in too far to quit lying.
