Post Satire: 9/11 Truthers are a NeoCon Conspiracy

I don't actually believe this but I just thought up this conspiracy theory:

After 9/11, the neo-cons took advantage of a nation shocked and scared to lie us into a war in Iraq. Concerned that when no WMD were found in Iraq, they created the 9/11 Truth Movement.

The idea was to put out shrill, crazy-sounding theories out there into the blogosphere so that anyone who criticizes the neo-cons who took us into Iraq on false pretenses would be marginalized by false assocation.

Yeah, probably not but just the thought of telling Truthers "prove you're not a government agent" and watching their heads explode is kind of fun.

Well, I'm pretty sure 9/11 truthers exsisted before it was conclusive that there were no WMDs to be found in Iraq, so that probably fairly logially disproves it as a reactionary measure. It doesn't disprove that they could have known all along that they wouldn't find WMDs and so put the 9/11 truthers in place before they even mentioned Iraq.

And the only way to disprove that would be that, well, you're assuming the Neo-Cons are a lot smarter and more effective than they demonstrate themselves to be and if they had that kind of insight into the geo-political environment, surely they wouldn't have to resort to such tricks in order to sell thier agendas.

Unless Carl Rove and Paul Wolfowitz are actually the Devil. Not one or the other, they're both the Devil at the same time. Just Like Jesus and God are the same person, there's theological precedant here.

And actually, that's the most likely theory I've ever come up with ever in my short life on this planet... Which is, self evidently made of sponge cake.

"Created" seems like too strong of a word. "Accepted" is fair, and "encouraged" might even be possible. I've always suspected that the government has encouraged UFO nuts to hang around Area 51 looking for E.T., because it keeps them occupied and provides a certain amount of cover for actual classified goings-on.

Having a large group of noisy, delusional, slightly dysfunctional "Truthers" to lump all critics into can't have been the worst thing the Bush administration could have imagined happening. It definitely ate up a bunch of energy that could have gone towards exposing and confronting the real things Bush & Co. did wrong, and wasted it with self-centered conspiracy theory nonsense.
