The Battle For Ground Zero, Part 227

Usually, I use this regular space to refer to developments at Ground Zero and how things are progressing. This includes an update from within Silverstein Properties and how they're planning the construction of the towers that will ring the site.

However, this post will be a little different.

It seems that there is still quite a few folks out there that think that there was some kind of conspiracy relating to the 9/11 attacks and the destruction of 7WTC. Never mind that there's absolutely no evidence of a conspiracy. None. Not a single shred of evidence.

No evidence that Bush or anyone else in the government knew that there was a plot. No evidence that anyone decided to blow up 7WTC using the al Qaeda attacks as cover. Nothing.

Not a single shred of evidence.

Yet, it appears that leading Democrat party bigwigs and current and former Presidential candidates are more than willing to pay lip service to the possibility that there was a conspiracy. Why?

7WTC was heavily damaged by the collapse of the Twin Towers. There wasn't anyone fighting the fires at 7WTC because they were pulled back because of a concern that it would collapse. The 9/11 Commission and the NIST report detail the events leading up to the attacks and the aftermath.

Engineers have pored over the details, and there's absolutely no evidence of anyone setting explosives to take down 7WTC or any of the other structures at the site.

So, who are the latest and greatest Democrats to pander to the conspiracy theorists? John Edwards:

That follows John Kerry doing the same.

What is so troubling about all this is that this particular conspiracy theorizing is not limited to the fringe but is increasingly accepted by the Left.

I am not so willing to give Kerry or Edwards the benefit of the doubt as to whether they knew about specific details from 9/11. Kerry especially knows, or should know, the findings from the report. Edwards, if we're supposed to believe he's a credible candidate for President, should know details relating to 9/11 and what happened. Yet, they're willing to give credence to conspiracy theories that the government was involved?

Sorry, I'm not buying it. Not at all.

And the fact that so many in the crowd applaud his promise to look into the conspiracy theory makes me wonder about the direction of the Democrat party.

The truly depressing thing is that even if Kerry and Edwards don't believe there was a conspiracy, they must pander to these conspiracy freaks because they comprise a large segment of the Democrat party. And the leftist Democrats aren't alone. They've got company among the Hollywood types like Rosie O'Donnell and Sean Penn and Charlie Sheen, among others.

Popular Mechanics
can debunk the 9/11 conspiracy theories till the cows come home, but it isn't going to change the minds of anyone who have already committed to believing as an article of faith that this was a government conspiracy. Edwards, Kerry and the rest are only feeding this beast.
