FOX and the 9/11 skeptics

James Fetzer, the Distinguished McKnight University Professor of Philosophy at the University of Minnesota, Duluth, and co-chair of the group Scholars for 9/11 Truth appeared on Heartland with John Kasich to discuss his theories. He manages to get his point across in spite of Kasich’s constant attempts to undermine his points.

Kasich, a former Republican politician, clearly isn't going to take the high road during this interview. He starts the segment, "With the fifth anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks approaching, so are a sea of overblown conspiracy theories, some going as far as to say our government was responsible." Shouldn’t the viewers be left to decide for themselves whether or not the theory is ‘overblown’ or farfetched?

He then gets the misinformation going right off the bat by stating, "You have said that bombs were planted inside the world trade center by President Bush's brother and cousin...are you--you can't be really serious about that charge."

No, Fetzer isn't serious, because that isn’t what he’s alleging. What he actually states is not that President Bush's relatives—brother Marvin Bush and cousin Wirt Walker III--physically planted bombs themselves, however, they did both work for a security company involved with both the World Trade Center and United Airlines.

Check out the rest of the clip to listen to Fetzer’s compelling argument.
