Pinky and I have been getting lots of e-mails since forever asking us what we think of the documentary Loose Change. For those of you who don't know, Loose Change is a documentary film that claims that 9-11 was an 'inside job', perpetrated by the U.S. government. I guess because we tend to be critical of the U.S. people automatically assume we're going to love the conclusions of this film.
Well, all you Loose Change fans can stop e-mailing now. Pinky and I finally sat down and watched it last night, and I had to summon every bit of my patience just to sit through the whole thing. It was bad. The saddest thing about this film is that it tries to make believe it's performing carefully-reasoned forensic inquiry. So embarrassing.
Just to be clear, I have no idea if the U.S. government had anything to do with 9-11. If somebody could provide me with a credible 'smoking gun' document or some other evidence that proves that a small group of crazy elites within the U.S. government planned, coordinated, and carried out the whole thing, of course I would be fascinated and I would study that evidence very carefully. But nothing like that is in this documentary.

[ Note from Kim: Did Pinky like Loose Change? ]
[ Bunny: No. ]
[ Kim: You know from studying history that the U.S. government has done lots of things like this before, especially in other countries, right? So why doesn't it seem possible to you that there might have been somebody in the U.S. government that wanted to organize such a thing? Or maybe they just created 'an opening' so that someone else (like terrorists) who really wanted to do something bad would then be able to carry it out? ]
[ Bunny: I'm not saying it's impossible. In fact your second scenario has been one of our favorite 'regime change' methodologies of the post-WWII era. But mainly I just wanted to write this diary entry in order to point out that this documentary sucks. Because we've been getting so many e-mails about it. That's all. ]
[ Pinky: Kim, when you mention terrorists in your question to Bunny, who are you talking about? ]
[ Kim: Okay, I can see where you're going with that. I guess terrorists can be anybody who uses terror as a way to get what they want. It's like Daisy was pointing out, we have agencies right here in the U.S. that export terrorism to all over the planet. Thanks. ]
