Charlie Sheen Wants a Pass for 9/11 Conspiracy Remarks
Two and a Half men star Charlie Sheen is not happy that he was criticized after he joined the 9/11 conspiracy chorus on a national radio show last month.
The comedic actor tried to get serious - and was sold as a "credible voice"by the conspiracy crowdas theydesperately seek publicity - any publicity - to get their wild 9/11 theories out.
According to Contact Music UKSheen felt the criticisms were not warranted and wants a pass:
The forum I chose to voice those questions in was the Alex Jones radio show, just because he's a guy I had been a fan of and followed for a lot of years.
"I got attacked. The reaction was pretty severe, 'He's not qualified.' 'Who the hell is he to have an opinion about something so horrible?' "It was sad because they didn't really take a look at any of the stuff I was asking them to look at, any of the evidence, or any of the stuff that generated those questions.
"They said, 'Oh, he's another tin-foil-hat-wearing Hollywood clown.' "I felt the only real validation I needed was just being a tax-paying American who loves my country. "I've done a lot of research - it's not just me, it's the people that have come before me, the experts, the engineers, the physicists and scientists and the scholars that raised a lot of these things. "I took a look at their research and said, 'Yeah, a lot of it doesn't add up', hence these questions.
"Don't listen to me, do your own research, but I think, 'What happened to a time in this country when we had a constitutional and a God given right to be curious about things that didn't make sense?'
No one cares if Charlie Sheen has questions.
But when you make outrageous claims with nothing more than propaganda to back up said claims - expect to be attacked. Other people get to speak as well - and Sheen needs to understand that.
Sheen is allowed to have his questions - and folks in the media are allowed to challenge him and indeed label him a tin foil hat wearing "Hollywood nut."
He brought nothing serious to the table to debate.
The money quotes from his interview:
"It seems to me like 19 amateurs with box cutters taking over four commercial airliners and hitting 75% of their targets, that feels like a conspiracy theory. It raises a lot of questions."
He noted, "I was up early and we were gonna do a pre-shoot on Spin City, the show I used to do, I was watching the news and the north tower was burning. I saw the south tower hit live, that famous wide shot where it disappears behind the building and then we see the tremendous fireball."
"There was a feeling, it just didn't look any commercial jetliner I've flown on any time in my life and then when the buildings came down later on that day I said to my brother 'call me insane, but did it sorta look like those buildings came down in a controlled demolition?"
Yes - Charlie - the whole thing was staged in broad daylight on a clear blue sky morning in Manhattan.
He then questions whether a plane hit the Pentagon - a popular tale among these groups.
"But then you’ve got to shift the focus to the Pentagon. … Show us this incredible maneuvering, just show it to us. Just show us how this particular plane pulled off these maneuvers. What was it? A 270-degree turn at 500 miles per hour, descending 7,000 feet in two and a half minutes, skimming across tree tops the last 500 meters 40 feet off the ground. … It is up to us to reveal the truth."
The theories put forth by these groups are backed by sliced and diced propaganda films that are ridiculous and are easy to see through as nothing more than a cry for attention, and extreme paranoia.
Another popular theory from these folks is Flight 93 actually didn't crash in Pennsylvania - it landed in Cleveland. I guess he won't be seeing the film United 93 that comes out on the 28th, and believes all of those cockpit recordings are fake.
Charlie Sheen has now attached his "credible" voice to this tiny little movement. And he complains he was slammed over his remarks?
He's fortunate that most ignored him.
