TRUTH UNITES... AND DIVIDES SAID:
“That's where the conspiracy theorist merely scales back down the magnitude a bit so that s/he can still proceed forward.”
Sorry, TUAD, but you’d make a lousy screenwriter. You’re leaving out all the fun parts. Surely you know by now how the story goes.
A young investigative reporter for the Washington Post makes a clandestine appointment with a secret gov’t informant to meet him at E. Potomac Park around midnight. The informant has incontrovertible evidence that George Bush staged 9/11 in exchange for a T206 Honus Wagner baseball card from the private collection of Philippine de Rothschild.
When the reporter arrives on the scene, the gov’t informant has a bullethole in his left temple.
The reporter rushes back to his car and tries to make his getaway, but he’s driven off the road by men in black with earpieces. He’s bound, blindfolded, sedated, and thrown into the back of a van with a gov’t plates.
Hours later, he wakes up in a 5 x 5 cell at GITMO. And that’s the good news.
