Ahhhh, how refreshing...
It is unusual for me to react this way to anonymous statements made by government departments, but this week, the Pentagon outdid itself in the plain-speaking-of-truth department. It seems the Pentagon was asked about the "controvery" over the French best-seller "The Horrifying Fraud" by Thierry Meyssan, who contends that no airplane crashed into the Pentagon - instead, a Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy fired a missile at it - and that, while planes did hit the WTC, they were actually flown by, yes, the same VWRC. To quote:
A Pentagon spokesman said, "There was no official reaction because we figured it was so stupid."
Do you think we could fire a whole lot of government spokespeople and clone this person from the Pentagon?
