Loose Change: It is time you watched it

Can you explain the facts presented at the beginning of this video? If you have not yet seen this documentary, it is time to wake up.

Sigh.. I must be a masochist.

I've seen it, it is complete hooey. Others have done a better job than I could to debunk all the BS.

Here is a list of the top 37 lies in Loose Change Final Cut:

1-10,11-20,21-30,31-37

If you're more the A/V type, here is a site with an exhaustive collection of Videos debunking LC. Click on the videos link on the left of that page.

Here is an entertaining page pointing out the illogic of the Troofers' interpretation of events.

Here is a massive forum thread at the James Randi Educational Foundation (a well known skeptic organization) where they analyze the logical fallacies of Loose Change and debate with Troofers.

If you want something more reputable than blogs and forums:
Here is an extensive analysis in Popular Mechanics.
Here is the NIST Report.
Here is the 9-11 Commission Report.

I could come up with a hundred more sources.

Thanks for presenting another view with documentation. That's all we ever have asked.

Feel free to write a post if you like to explore these issues in depth.

However, more and more Americans are very distrustful of government and with good reason. That's why videos like Loose Change exist.

If we could trust our government, they would not.

P.s.
John, there is not a thing wrong with masochism. Some would argue Christ was masochistic.

physics911.net is a good source for those interested in what the scientists know about 9-11.

Your choice. You can believe scientific fact or government white wash like the 9-11 commission.

Ok, there's is one of the best examples of a false dichotomy I've ever seen.

Just like any Libertarian, I'm no fan of the government, but an objective look at the claims of the Troofers reveals that they just don't hold water. Read the arguments from the other side at the links I posted for many many examples.
