The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has tumbled into a new dispute over the Sept. 11 attacks of five years ago.The Democrats? It's hard to believe that Reid, Pelosi and other Dem leaders could skillfully and effectively collude with anyone on anything.
Its Presbyterian Publishing Corp. has issued "Christian Faith and the Truth Behind 9/11" (Westminster John Knox), containing perhaps the most incendiary accusations leveled by a writer for a mainline Protestant book house.
Author David Ray Griffin tells of concluding that "the Bush-Cheney administration had orchestrated 9/11 in order to promote this (American) empire under the pretext of the so-called war on terror."
"No other interpretation is possible," he asserts.
His conspiracy theory includes criminal involvement of the U.S. military and collusion by members of the 9/11 Commission, politicians of both parties and American journalists, who willfully ignored the plot, he says.
Proof that the Left has its nut-cases too.
Griffin is unable to provide hard evidence and connects few dots. Rather, he discusses the metallurgy of the World Trade Center towers and various murky details and odd occurrences regarding the fateful day.
He spins forth the speculations after deeming the accepted version of events implausible.
Speaking of plausibility, what are the odds that so many conspirators could maintain such a cover-up, except in a Stalinist police state?
Griffin also asserts claims about "abundant evidence" of Bush administration orchestration of 9/11 .... Presbyterian News Service explains that the publishing house ... receives no church money and "operates with complete editorial autonomy."
... Griffin's ultimate goal? He wants Christians to try to supplant America's "demonic" regime with a system of "global government."
I'm sorry, but anecdotes and rhetorical questions do not prove a conspiracy. Where the hell is all of this "abundant evidence"?
