Alice in WondIran

It's hard to believe anyone--except for a lunatic fringe--could possibly deny the facts of the 9/11 World Trade Center attack. Millions saw it unfold on live television...and watched the collapse of the towers. We followed the story as the FBI tracked down the identities of the terrorists who boarded the planes, and saw their pictures as they went through airport security. And the passengers on United Airlines flight 93 called to report the plane had indeed been hijacked by terrorists. These are established facts.

But evidently such realities don't matter for those on the "other side" of the looking glass. Today the Islamic Republic News Agency posted an article entitled, "Undeniable truth about 9/11 tragedy." The article is based on a report from "veteran journalist, Michael Everyman" who, they claim, has "unveiled the undeniable truth about the tragic incident of September 11, 2001...."

So who is this "veteran journalist," and what is his "undeniable truth"? The undeniable truth is that this "veteran journalist" is part of the fringe trying to find a government-sponsored conspiracy behind 9/11 in spite of the mountain of evidence to the contrary. Want to know specifically what this "journalist" believes? Check out his blog post "Too Big to Allow: Some Unmentioned Ramifications of 911 Truth."

But my post is not about Michael Everyman, it's about the Islamic Republic News Agency. If they release articles like this--that are so patently false--it's hard to believe anything they say. They are dispensing propaganda, not news. Such lies need to be challenged lest people eventually think they might be true. Remember, "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it." Don't let that happen!
