it must be true.

The 9/11 terrorist attack on America which left almost 3,000 people dead was an “inside job”, according to a group of leading academics.

Around 75 top professors and leading scientists believe the attacks were puppeteered by war mongers in the White House to justify the invasion and the occupation of oil-rich Arab countries.

And of course, they blame the dreaded Neo-Cons(tm)!

They believe a group of US neo-conservatives called the Project for a New American Century, set on US world dominance, orchestrated the 9/11 attacks as an excuse to hit Iraq, Afghanistan and later Iran.

The group says scientific evidence over the attacks on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon is conclusive proof.

And Popular Mechanics has already disproven these “proofs”. These are scientists and academics, the very folks who are supposed to be more dispassionate than the rest of us in their review and debate of the facts. But as it turns out, they differ little from any of us who have our core beliefs tested.

But University of Wisconsin assistant professor, Kevin Barrett, said experts are unwilling to believe theories which don’t fit into their belief systems.

This could just as easily apply to the man-made global warming debate as to nutty 9/11 conspiracy theories. Politics is trumping science and learning.
