Congress Pays Tribute To Flight 93. Plus Charlie Sheen’s Trutherism
The House and Senate did good!
US lawmakers Wednesday paid tribute to the passengers on United Airlines Flight 93 who fought back against hijackers to stop it possibly hitting the Capitol in the September 11, 2001 attacks.
“In memory of the passengers and crew of Flight 93 whose brave sacrifice on September 11, 2001 not only saved countless lives but may have saved the US Capitol from destruction,” read a bronze plaque unveiled Wednesday at the Congress by lawmakers and families of the victims.
A solemn ceremony was then held to remember the nearly 3,000 people who died in the 2001 attacks on the United States.
I have to give Nancy Pelosi props for a very nice speech on the House floor regarding 9/11 and the Flight 93 sacrifice. Now, if only Congress would get involved to get rid of the horrendous idea of even getting close to the Islamic Crescent of Embrace symbol on the memorial site.
Meanwhile, Charlie Sheen goes nuts
Actor Charlie Sheen is demanding a meeting with President Obama to discuss his belief that the September 11 terror attacks were perpetrated by the federal government.
In an interview with PrisonPlanet.com, The “Two and a Half Men” star unveils a fictional 20-minute exchange he imagines having with Obama — whom he supported in the November election — during which he implores the president to get on “the right side of history.”
Sheen, 44, argues that “the official 9/11 story is a fraud” and claims the attacks served as “the pretext for the systematic dismantling of our Constitution and Bill of Rights.” Moreover, he charges that the Bush/Cheney “regime” was behind the attacks as a prelude to justify an invasion of Iraq. Sheen also insinuates that Usama bin Laden is working for the U.S. government.
Did I say nuts? How about certificably insane?
I recently had the pleasure of sitting down with our 44th President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama, while he was out promoting his health care reform initiative. I requested 30 minutes given the scope and detail of my inquiry; they said I could have 20. Twenty minutes, 1200 seconds, not a lot of time to question the President about one of the most important events in our nation’s history. The following is a transcript of our remarkable discussion.
Did he really sit down with Obama (it should be noted that Charlie used Obama’s middle name, so, Charlie is a racist (sic))? No. This was simply a conversation with Obama coming from the fever swamps of Charlie’s mind. You know how they press release for Sheen’s appearance on Alex Jones show put it?
This is a call to action and a declaration of war on the alleged lies of 9/11 that have formed the foundation of the endless wars abroad and the police state at home as the Republic falls. Sheen is demanding that truth activists and those who simply care about the future of the country stand up beside him and speak truth to power.
This is a call for the creation of national crash project to increase the supply of padded rooms and straight jackets.
Meanwhile, the Earth Action Network put out a press release in support of Van Jones’ Trutherism, proclaiming that Obama is not living up to his promise of transparency, and we need a new investigation.
