Alec Baldwin: 9/11 Truther?

New York Magazine‘s Daily Intel asks why Alec Baldwin is alluding to 9/11 conspiracy theories on Twitter:

The actor and potential mayoral hopeful had a late Twitter session overnight, as he’s been known to do, in which he answered questions from followers. At the end, he went on a particularly uncomfortable tangent. “Do you think Bin Laden was behind 9-11?” he wrote, followed by two messages about the counter-terrorist exercise Amalgam Virgo, a favorite talking point of the truther movement. When Baldwin was asked if it was “a little late to make that accusation” by a follower, he replied, “what ‘accusation?'” and concluded: “9-11 …….. what have we learned?”

For one, we’ve learned that people are not generally thrilled when September 11 is invoked with doubt as to its perpetrators, whether it’s a joke or not. Baldwin, who’s hosting a public forum next month about 9/11, is a noted provocateur and a master with the press, so it’s possible that he’s poking fun at the truther contingent or just getting himself some attention. But even if that’s the case, he’s doing so in a way ambiguous enough to raise eyebrows…

    Kevin Ryan will also be on NPR debating Jonathan Kay and a Popular Mechanics editor responsible for their yellow journistic hit piece masquerading as “debunking”. Here is to Kevin Ryan making the most of the 10 minutes they allotted him. Hope he destroys the evil illogic of Faux skeptic and Mossad sympathizer Jonathan Kay.

      Excellent point, and very well put. Any of those guys that threaten to end your decade-long psychosis are just fools trying to confuse you. People in power always have your back and would never, ever deceive you for want of more power. No need to look any further, the TV said so.

    Lets hope that more of these celebrity’s start speaking the TRUTH about 9/11. Think of how amazing it will be when everyone knows about 9/11 being a false flag. We might actually get some justice for the family’s that lost love ones. Also, the whole ‘Osama bin Laden killing hoax’ will get exposed when the truth starts spreading about 9/11. Maybe then Americans will realized how much they are lied to everyday by their government and the media. 

    This is great news if Alec is actually starting to believe the truth. (I bet Steven’s been talking to him about it..)

    Now the fun part starts, lets see all the dogmatic, brainwashed reply’s people send me.. But before you start, what I KNOW will not be changed. I have studied the evidence MYSELF and I KNOW NIST has no credibility anymore after releasing their report. Which is completely full of garbage and nothing more than pseudo-science. 

    I will be purchasing many copies of the new A&E9/11Truth documentary “Experts Speak Out” and distributing them to everyone I know. 

    INVESTIGATE 9/11!

      • SamIam

        No, this is my second or third time posting on this site.  I just said that because of the heckling I was expecting to get from saying the pro 9/11 truther stuff. Surprisingly people here are much smarter than I expected. 

        • ChristianHypocrite

          And with Alec Baldwin on your side, the average “truther” IQ has doubled!

          • WTCSeven

            That doesn’t make much sense, most of the “truthers” I know are Phd’s and Engineers.. And it’s the laymen’s who are attacking them 90% of the time. Or the self proclaimed “debunkers” that use the same incorrect theories over and over again. Any intelligent person that studies the evidence will in turn become a “truther” because that’s where the evidence leads you. I myself didn’t “choose” to be a “truther.” It just happens because the conclusions drawn from the evidence only allows a limited set of circumstances to be possible. It’s just basic scientific method you see. There are tons of different conspiracy theories out there, and people claiming to be “truthers” are helping spread them. We know that’s a problem because most of their theories contain multiple layers of speculation. I guess that’s one of the reasons they get such a bad rep. Now the intelligent “truther” sticks to the evidence and leaves speculation alone. Lets just hope Mr Baldwin is’t buying into any of those speculative theories. 

            FYI- When I say evidence I mean: video, pictures, multiple witness testimony, forensic, metallurgic, and physical. Not the rigged computer models NIST used.

            Maybe my response was a little unwarranted. You might have just been trying to add some levity here. But It’s in my nature now as a “truther” to defend myself. 

            Cheers!

    I think the truth about 9/11 is that international terrorists had a clever idea to cause an enormous amount of death and destruction, then managed to pull it off. I don’t believe that they received direct assistance from any Western government, nor that the event could have been any sort of false flag, primarily because there is no reality in which another option makes sense.

    Running 9/11 as a false flag attack would be extremely high risk for relatively low reward, and nobody speculated to have the means or motive to do so would fail to recognize that. If they wanted to invade Afghanistan, they could have found pretense without such an event (such as declaring the Taliban’s theocracy to be a humanitarian crisis, which wouldn’t even have been much of a stretch). If they wanted to invade Iraq, well, they DID find a pretense that didn’t require 9/11 (though admittedly it benefited from lack of scrutiny), so that’s not in question.

    Now, with that said, I do not believe that our government couldn’t have played some part in it, and I suspect that there was some degree of complicity in allowing it to occur. Certainly I believe that 9/11 has been heavily exploited by politic and (more importantly) economic interests in order to gain concessions from Americans that we would not normally have allowed. I find such crass opportunism to be disturbing, and from the rapidity with which many of these plans were enacted it seems likely that they had been at least partly made in advance, if not with specific knowledge of what was to unfold than with intent to exploit such a situation when it did.

    I also suspect that most of the money and resources used to train for and execute the attacks came, ultimately, from Western intelligence and business entities, who fund these groups in order to destabilize foreign interests as well as to use them against more dangerous and anarchic upstarts. It is well-documented that the CIA trained and employed OBL for many years, and other groups such as the FBI are notorious for collaborating with criminal groups.

    I don’t identify as a conspiracy theorist because, frankly, that government and corporate groups engage in such acts is established fact. There is some speculation on my part regarding whether or not the events surrounding 9/11 are such an example, but the speculation is that things which are known to have been done at other times and under similar circumstances were also done in this case. My opinion is that given the frequency and consistency with which such conspiracies occur, it would take a tremendous fool to assume that they did not on 9/11. That includes the foolishness of believing that our leaders were completely uninvolved, as well as the foolishness of believing that they were directly involved and the entire thing was some sort of elaborate hoax.

    It does seem kind of astonishing that people expect the Homeland government to fess-up to 911. But it sure sells books, podcasts and pimps some careers, so its not all bad.

    NORAD not intercepting one of the airliners at our nation’s capital and New York City is the biggest thing I have a problem with about the story of 9/11, and of course the whole tragedy was spun to expand the military-industrial complex’s coffers with limitless taxpayer dollars.
