I’ve got several friends who’ve raised the issue, and after seeing the video Loose Change put together, I’ve had my suspicions as well. CNN took another interesting look at an angle I hadn’t seen before, and while they stack the deck against any possibility of conspiracy, I’m not entirely convinced.
I don’t have any serious opinion either way, but do I think the American government has the capability to do such a thing? Yes. Is it above all suspicion as the paragon of virtue and liberty and morality in the world? Resoundingly, no. *cough* Hiroshima, Nagasaki, firebombing Dresden, carpetbombing Berlin, Gitmo, secret prisons *double cough*
I don’t know. I’m a cynic when it comes to secular government period, American or otherwise. I don’t know.
