Bernie Sanders just smacked down a 9/11 conspiracy guy live on Thom Hartmann.

Said that he accepts the official explanation that it was al-Qaeda and dismissed the caller who was citing the "Hunt the Boeing" crapolla.

It was pretty darn funny.

5. The guy brought up find the Boeing at the Pentagon
I'm with Bernie on this one.

Oh and then next caller sounded like a tea-bagger but from the Left. He wanted to overthrow the government. Thom and Bernie told him to show up at the next Democratic or Green Party meeting in his area instead.

6. Yeah, Bernie was pretty offended by that second guy's assertions.
Edited on Fri May-01-09 12:03 PM by onehandle
Makes me wonder if there was a screener today.

4. The beauty of dismissing all conspiracy theories out of hand
is that the truth about real conspiracies can also be dismissed.

12. Well argued...
By the way, I'm posting this comment from the parallel universe where personal insults are a valid substitute for logic.

13. I heard somebody say : letting anyone who doesn't know 9/11 was an inside job be president
Edited on Fri May-01-09 01:22 PM by librechik
is like handing a 4 year old a box of hand grenades.

Let us hope Obama is a little more streetwise than he appears nowadays.

8. Nobody's perfect. Not even Bernie Sanders.
I probably agree with him 98% of the time, but he's completely wrong on this one, if he buys the "official" Bush Crime Family fictional story.

10. i heard Bernie once say on TH
that we do not need to re-open 911 investigations.

and that was the end of listening to Breakfast With Bernie.

i am glad we have him in the Senate but on this point he is wrong, complicit, or afraid.

11. I didn't think it was a big deal.
Bernie just didn't want to discuss the questions surrounding 9/11. Said he believed the 9/11 Commission report.

It wasn't a dramatic bold "smack down" -- just a choice to focus on other topics.
