I’m sure this isn’t exactly recent, but I thought this was interesting: http://www.cracked.com/article_15740_was-911-inside-job.html.

Basically, the author notes all of the ways that this 9/11 conspiracy couldn’t have happened.

Yeah, it is rather curious the way in which these folks claim that the conspirators were able to plan and implement this massively complex plan, yet these same genius plotters couldn’t tell the difference between two airplanes and three airplanes.

The thing is, the conspiracy theorists don’t actually have a theory of their own.  All that they really do is try to tear down the officially-released reports and suchlike.  They insist that the World Trade Center was blown up with explosives, they say that a missile hit the Pentagon, they say all sorts of things with each little bit in isolation.  They never string everything together into one coherent story. . .because they can’t.  Their claims are all too contradictory and confused, and so they can’t be put together.  But by presenting each of their claims separately, they can try to hide that.

And so they say that for the attacks on the World Trade Center, every single one of the television stations covering the event had some sort of super-fancy real-time computer generated special effects to create the image of an airplane.  And then these same people try to claim that the Pentagon has been hiding footage from security cameras, because if people were to watch the footage they’d see that there was no airplane hitting the Pentagon.  The conspiracy theorists don’t have to admit that these two claims contradict each other (the conspirators can fake an airplane crash live, but are incapable of faking one when given years to work on it?), because they never present the two claims as part of one whole story.

If you ever want the eyewitness truth ............ask a 12 year old . For some strange psychological reason they aren’t yet swayed by crowd/mob conpiricy theorys and actually see an event more precisely than a younger or older person.

round up all the 11-12 year old eyewitnesses to 9/11 and you’ll have your truth .

Not a good idea. They CAN be swayed. Who says they can’t? Lemme cite an example, peer pressure is one. Also, kids can also be tricked to follow a certain story. And kids will also be tricked to believe. A kid won’t know physics or anything sensible to determine what really happened. Show them even the vaguest form of truth and voila, they believe.

I do know a kid who was 11 at the time and i asked him why he thinks why space has dark areas even if there were so many stars (He was a well read kid too). He said light hasn’t traveled through those certain areas so they don’t appear. I said “Dark matter is the cause.” The kid just finished a book on space and he believed me.

Also, hoarding up a bunch of kids and making them relieve such traumatizing moments is just cruel.
