Thanks a lot for your insightful analysis.  NOT.  Please stop the  
personal attacks now.

If 10% of the things wrong with the official explanation were  
seriously examined we would have many "leaders" on trial for treason.   
That would be just and utterly necessary if we are going to escape the  
end of freedom in America.   Or don't you believe in finding the truth  
and punishing those who have done wrong?

What are you talking about?  I advocated no such thing.  I advocate  
reopening the investigation and letting the truth fall where it may.    
It is the government that has spoken of camps and taking away all  
rights on their say-so, not I.

It was obviously a house of cards.  I said so from day 1 and was  
vilified here with great enthusiasm for doing so.   I am doing what  
Bush did?  What kind of empty and utterly spurious argument is  
that?    Show me the science then.  I am waiting.
