Hear Ye, Hear Ye (Welcome!)

This is the case of the People vs. the United States Government. A trial where conspiracy theorists can present their case of United States complicity in the 9/11 attacks, and debunkers can challenge the evidence.

The usual standards of justice apply, to name a few:

The United States government is innocent until proven guilty.

Witnesses and evidence must have a direct bearing on the alleged acts of the United States government.

All evidence that the prosecution plans on using will be made available to the defense in advance.

Allowances will be made for the unusual circumstances of the trial (e.g. I don't anticipate having witnesses available to directly testify, so their testimony will have to be taken from recorded statements).

I will begin considering candidates for the prosecution from the 9/11 truth community, and candidates for the defense from the debunking community. You, the reader, be the jury.

As the trial/blog develops, I'll be changing this welcome message occasionally.

Full disclosure: I do not believe in 9/11 conspiracy theories. It would be nearly impossible to find someone who didn't have a strong opinion either way. Such a person, if one exists, would probably not be someone you would want making any kind of decisions. All I can do is promise I will decide fairly, based on agreed upon rules, what evidence may be admitted; and how each case may be presented.

Read on for the agenda before the court.

Sounds like a good idea. Have you shopped it around the websites of the glue-sniffing conspiracy theorists?

For openers, you have to have people who will terstify to things they have firsthand knowledge of.

Since the 9/11 Nutties contend that this was some massive government plot, they should have no problem finding just one single solitary government agent who planted explosives, hijacked a jet, or shot one down.

Just one, please.

Nutties who "claim" to have information but are proven to be grade-A fruitcakes cannot testify.
