"Loose Change 9/11: An American Coup": more conpsiracy theories?
NatGeo recently previewed Dylan Avery’s documentary “Loose Change 9/11: An American Coup” and the film (distributed by Microcinema) is now available from Netflix. The website is this also here's and adovcacy engineering site for this particular "conspiracy theory".
The film starts out with a 12 minute prologue showing how in history governments have set up catastrophes to justify their agendas, starting with the Nazi burning of the Reichstag in 1933. LBJ’s handling of the Gulf of Tonkin before Vietnam is interesting.
The film moves on to analyze the events of 9/11, and point out various anomalies. The government is said to have started a maneuver on September 10, and President Bush stayed in the elementary school for almost half and hour after the attack started, reading “My Pet Goat”. The path of the plane that hit the Pentagon is said to be illogical, and impossible even for a recently trained hijacker.
But much of the film goes into claims that the “pancake implosions” of the Twin Towers could not have occurred without explosives having been planted beforehand, near the base of the building, which some witnesses claim they saw.
The DVD includes interviews with Daniel Sujata, and actor who says “artists have got to become activists”, as well as engineer Richard Gage. It also interviews the artist Janette McKinlay.
I suppose that this film makes a good comparison to Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11".
