Flying Saucers and the Decline of the Left: Alexander Cockburn makes fun again of the 9-11 conspiracy nuts. Fanciful speculations in which great meaning or emotion is invested. What a waste. There's so much reality to learn about.

It's a bit like the Reichstag fire: to this day historians are not sure whodunnit. It could have been the Nazis, or maybe not. What difference does it make? The significance of the event is more in the way it was exploited by the Government of the day rather than in the detail of the event itself. Same with 9-11, except there's no doubt the hijackers were Arabs.
