Motherhood is hard work. If we don't stick together, we'll all fall apart.

I don't usually do this, but...

I have to ask. It's a political or current events question. This makes no sense to me, so if anyone can explain it to me, I'd appreciate it.

There's this guy who "claims the Sept. 11 terror attacks were an “inside job,” and he blames U.S. foreign policy for spawning the terrorism that carried out the attacks."

Okay. So, 9/11 was committed by the U.S. Government, but also the U.S. government's policy inspired it by its supposed terrorist actions?

Wait. Who did it again? It was us, doing it to ourselves, but the terrorists were getting even for... but they were cheering in the Palestinian territories and bin Laden was praising it...
My head is hurting...

Thanks, Mr. Spencer.

Well, it was the Illuminati who set it all up. Quite possibly with the help of Opus Dei, dontcha know.

Oh my.

One or the other, but not both at the same time, please.

People regularly make contradictory arguments simultaneously. 9/11 brings out some of the most egregious offenders (I've lost track of how many Muslims have argued simultaneously that Osama Bin Laden was innocent AND that he was a hero for destroying the WTC), but it's not the only case.

San Francisco fans often try to defend Barry Bonds by
saying, "There's no proof he ever took steroids, and besides, he was already a great player before he started using them!"

G.W. Bush apologists try to say, "We don't engage in torture, and besides, there's no clear definition of torture."

One wishes these people would get their stories straight. Is your guy innocent, or guilty-but-justified? He can't be both!

The lack of evidence and proof is *all* the evidence and proof these conspiracy theorists need.

Sad, really. Tried listening to some of their theories and realized a tumbleweed in the desert is a straighter line than the webs they weave...
