Troofers get some high level support

Since the horrific attacks on 11 September 2001, there have been various nut-jobs/conspiracy theorists disputing that the attacks happened in the way most of us remember. Some claim no plane hit the Pentagon. Some are convinced the whole thing was staged by our government. Decent people have been disgusted by these very suggestions. Some smart people at Popular Mechanics magazine thoroughly debunked the various claims of Rosie O'Donnell and others of her ilk. The History Channel also did a special that discredited the conspiracy theories. The calm rational explanations did not to shake the faith of the nuts. Now, they have the head of a foreign country supporting their position. Unfortunately, it doesn't help their credibility that their new strange bedfellow is Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Iran's hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad cast doubt Wednesday over the U.S. version of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, calling it a pretext used to invade Afghanistan and Iraq. This was the third time in a week Ahmadinejad questioned the death toll, who was behind the attacks and how it happened.

"Four or five years ago, a suspicious event occurred in New York. A building collapsed and they said that 3,000 people had been killed but never published their names," Ahmadinejad told Iranians in the holy city of Qom.
Previously, the nuts could laugh about being lumped together with those who don't believe we ever went to the moon. I wonder how they feel about being in agreement with a crazy anti-Semite who also denies that the Holocaust happened.

it is basically one long conspiracy theory on how 9/11 attacks were planned and conducted by the US Government.
