Now, this is braver than anything depicted in Platoon:
Do you agree with Charlie Sheen that the U.S. government covered up the real events of the 9/11 attacks?
Yes 82% 11,337 votes

No 18% 2,501 votes

(Total: 13, 838 votes )
Charlie Sheen has at least one thing in common with George Bush: His father played the president on TV for a very long time.
But Charlie Sheen is not afraid to question the official story of September 11th as endorsed by George Bush. Sheen's words - and four years of hard work by 9/11 skeptics - are making a difference. It is suddenly allowable to voice your suspicions about September 11th. The official mythology is losing its sway with the American people. Suddenly, a spokesperson is invited to appear on CNN…


  1. It is a big conspiracy to pull off, involving many people. This post is too cynical, for me to buy.

    I think when Bush was told about the second plane, he acted as detached as usual.

    Q, have you seen this?

    Also, I suppose it's no surprise that I haven't seen this story reported much beyond CNN, but if any newspaper is going to treat this with the gravity it deserves and not slip instead into sneery condescension, then you can definitely count on The Guardian.


  4. wow pn, that guardian thing is so frantic, breathless, you want to offer her a drink: had to associate Sheen with scientology and antisemitism and suggest its all really the leakage of that famous 'black man's paranoia' which suspects the White House - of all institutions! the WHITE house, could it be more innocent? - is capable of crimes or ill will.

    renegade eye: "It is a big conspiracy to pull off, involving many people."

    Well, how do you know how many people it involved? The Bush Gang tells us that 19 hamfisted students managed it all on their own. Call me cynical, but I believe that what Eisenhower called "the military-industrial complex" is quite capable of matching those resources. And, as Chabert points out, the White House too is capable of ill will.

    Peter, I sent a letter to the Guardian yesterday (reposted at Chabert's place.)

    Marina Hyde's article is a nasty little hit-piece. She makes a snickering jibe about Sheen having had problems with cocaine, as if that were enough to discredit anything he says a decade later. At the same time, she says not a word about the Boy King's well-attested partiality to that very same substance, and others.
