    Premise: WTC lessee Larry Silverstein benefited financially from 9/11, therefore it had to be a nefarious conspiracy.

    Claim: "Silverstein traded $124 million and 6 months for over $4 BILLION."

    Response: "The terms of the lease gave Silverstein, as leaseholder, the right and the obligation to rebuild the structures if destroyed ... The proceeds of the insurance policies arising from the destruction of the previous buildings were insufficient to cover the cost of rebuilding all the insured buildings."

    Retort: "Silverstein traded $124 million and 6 months for over $4 BILLION."

    Conclusion: This is but one example of a common methodolgy employed by 9/11 "Truthers." When faced with facts they simply ignore them and repeat their half-baked tales. :D

    I'm sure you have a credible source for this info?

    I find it hard to believe you've never seen these facts before, Princess, so I am forced to conclude you are being obtuse. Are you being obtuse? :D

    Wikipedia? You don't know that Wikipedia can be edited by anyone?

    Fail.

    Come back when you've found a credible source for your assertions.

    OP Makes fun of "truthers" for using a flawed "common methodology" while using that same "common methodology" himself.

    Fail Squared.

    You can't make this sh*t up!

    Or can you? :dunno:

    Peace! :thup:

    No, it can't Princess, but you go ahead and try.
    Wiki includes sources unlike your Youtube fantasies and blogspot creations. You do know that anyone can upload just about anything at Youtube and post absolutely anything at blogspots, right? Damn, I once thought you rational and reasonable. I was mistaken. :D

    From Wikipedia:
    Wikipedia:Introduction - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Who uses it?
    Wikipedia:Who writes Wikipedia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    "No Formal Training", that's probably why YOU gravitate towards it. :D

    SAYIT: Fail Troll!
