Charlie Sheen: 9/11 Was Government Plot

Well, I hope the publication, by what appears to be a total nut job website, of the wisdom of Charlie Sheen on 9/11. Apparently Mr. Sheen, according to the website, PrisonPlanet.com, "...has joined a growing army of other highly credible public figures in questioning the official story of 9/11 and calling for a new independent investigation of the attack and the circumstances surrounding it."

Yes, Charlie is one of the first people who come to mind whenever I'm looking for credible political analysis. He certainly is the most famous of the bright lights PrisonPlanet claims also believe that the government itself probably brought down the World Trade Center and damaged the Pentagon. The others are: Ray McGovern, Paul Craig Roberts, Steven Jones, Andreas von Buelow (any relation to Klaus and Sunny?), David Shayler, Michael Meacher and the ever popular Morgan Reynolds.

What, you've never heard of any of these people? Not to fear, PrisonPlanet provides brief descriptions of their cv's.

You really have to read this piece to believe it. A sample of Sheen's analysis:

"It seems to me like 19 amateurs with box cutters taking over four commercial airliners and hitting 75% of their targets, that feels like a conspiracy theory. It raises a lot of questions."

Sheen described the climate of acceptance for serious discussion about 9/11 as being far more fertile than it was a couple of years ago.

"It feels like from the people I talk to in and around my circles, it seems like the worm is turning."

Good God!
