Finally, an article to respond to Maddox' hit piece on 9/11 researchers.
Frankly, Maddox' article was rather weak. The argument that conspiracy theorists would be dead if what they say is true is neither new nor original; it's one of the canned lines repeated over and over again by media hit pieces. As the German laws banning Holocaust denial have shown, political repression against people holding differing opinions, whether valid or not, only serve to give them more legitimacy, because it portrays the government as trying to hide a truth they desperately do not want to hear. Therefore, governments only resort to assassinations sparsely, and only against whistleblowers that have smoking gun evidence and have not yet come out with their story.
Such a case has happened at least once: Hunter S. Thompson's sudden demise came as he was working on a WTC collapse story, after he had warned that he would get 'suicided'. This incident in itself served to fuel more suspicion towards the official story of 9/11.
Don't get me wrong, I used to like reading Maddox' articles. This is not meant to bash him. But fighting for the truth takes priority over a popular guy with a website, and I can no longer endorse someone who uses his wit for the service of the establishment.
