9-11 Trutherism remains a problem two decades later

William Sullivan reminds everyone that 9-11 Trutherism's still a troubling ideology that's remained in the minds of leftists for over 2 decades since the tragedy:
This past 9/11, a very good friend of mine, via a texted meme to a small group of friends, suggested that America is just adamant to “Never Forget” the destruction of World Trade Center (WTC) Towers 1 and 2 on 9/11, but that we’re all meant to “Forget” the collapse of WTC Building 7. Another of my best friends on this text thread warned us to “never forget the demolition of [World Trade Center] building #7 on live TV.”

Clearly, the assertion is that the American government was the true mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks. And, as someone who lived through the “Truther” moment’s birth as a politically tuned-in young adult, this moment marked a stark contrast to the claims that I used to hear in regard to 9/11 conspiracy theories. Back in the day, the lack of details of World Trade Center 1 and 2’s collapse was the central focus of the Truther’s argument. Jet fuel can’t burn hot enough to compromise the structural integrity of the steel beams of those buildings, they argued incessantly -- until they were proven wrong, over, and over, and over again.

Such facts becoming more well-known, apparently, promoted the WTC-7 narrative from side dish to entrée in that argument.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
