," writer Richard Whittaker dressed down Alex Jones for his career of conspiracy theories, the latest being a lunatic “false flag” explanation for the white nationalist violence in Charlottesville, which is a clearly ridiculous assertion by Jones. But in the effort to demean Jones further, Whittaker noted that Jones said the Sandy Hook massacre and 9/11 were also staged events. One only has to go to the videotape to see that Jones is sometimes correct. There exists footage from a news helicopter showing two men running from the back of the Sandy Hook school and up a hill into the trees behind the school immediately after the shooting, being chased and later captured by local police. Their identities and reasons for running away from the largest mass murder of children in U.S. history was never released by the police. And one only has to watch Dan Rather's reaction to the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7, at 5:20pm on Sept. 11, that something is very wrong with the official story. At the time, Rather said the collapse looked like “controlled demolition,” and he was right. The 50-story building, which housed the CIA, the FBI, the SEC, and NYC emergency response offices, mysteriously caught fire on several floors and collapsed into its own footprint at free-fall speed. It was not hit by an airplane, merely grazed on one side by debris from the fallen towers. Alex Jones may be impeachable, but that doesn't mean he is always wrong. If you have any courage at all, research and report your findings on these two subjects. It's not a conspiracy “theory” when the videotape shows: It's a fact.
