9/11 the Biggest Story of Our Generation?

RECEIVED Tue., Oct. 24, 2006

Dear Editor,
    It amazes me to no end that Austin's supposedly "progressive" weekly continues to spout the party line that anyone who dares question the Bush-approved story of 9/11 is a "conspiracy theorist" [“Letters @ 3am,” Sept. 15; “Page Two,” Aug. 18].
    The events that day have led to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the atrocities at Abu Ghraib and Gitmo, the gradual dissolution of the Bill of Rights, and countless other nightmares.
    If the many millions of us who have questioned these events since day one are conspiracy nuts, then what does that make the hundreds of U.S. military and government officials who also think 9/11 was an inside job? Top Army, Navy, Marine, and CIA intelligence leaders are among them. Many of their arguments are presented at www.patriotsquestion911.com. Are they all nuts too?
    One would assume they know a bit more than most ... even the savants at the Chronicle.
    Instead of constantly moaning about Bush, why not actually do some real journalism and address the biggest story of our generation?
    Maybe Stephen Moser can cover it. I hear those generals have really snappy outfits.
