Freak Professor A. K. Dewdney defends the Operation Pearl conspiracy theory:
Editor’s note: Some people have said that this account of the events of September 11th 2001 (a detailed extension of the Valentine-Plissken Hypothesis) is “too convoluted to understand”.
Actually, it’s not that hard to understand, but it is “too convoluted to” pass the Occam’s Razor test. The simplest explanation of what happened September 11, 2001, the one which requires the “least entities”, is that 19 crazy ass bastards driven by a combination of religious zeal and mental instability hijacked 4 airplanes and managed to drive 3 of them into their intended targets. I’m as big a fan of conspiracy theories as the next guy. When the “Middle Eastern looking” John Doe #2 turns into the “wimpy white guy looking” Terry Nichols, I’ll listen to theories. But a conspiracy theory ought to actually make as much sense as the “public” explanation.
