For years, the media and all right-thinking individuals have ridiculed the Americans who don't believe the official story that Saudi hijackers armed with box cutters brought down three buildings in New York, deriding them as "truthers." Since 2008, the media and all right-thinking individuals have ridiculed the Americans who don't believe the official story that Barack Obama was born in Hawaii to married parents, deriding them as "birthers."
What, then, shall we call the Americans who don't believe the official story that the Libyan assault on the American consulate in Benghazi, which killed four Americans, including the American ambassador to Libya, was the direct consequence of a YouTube film produced by an immigrant scam artist? Shall we call them "filmers"?
One wonders what the link to Nakoula Basseley Nakoula was supposed to be. Did those murderously angry Libyans imagine that the film was funded by the Central Intelligence Agency? Were they under the erroneous impression that Nakoula, who is an Egyptian citizen resident in the United States, was an American citizen? If we are to take the official story seriously, the attack was a tremendous mistake that should have been directed at Egyptian diplomats instead of American ones. No doubt, an apology from the parties responsible is forthcoming.

The fact is that we now know the Obama administration, the secretary of state, and numerous federal functionaries have been caught out telling lies. In fact, in some cases, they are even telling lies about the lies they previously told, as the official story 2.0 now has the administration pretending that they not only knew the attack was a well-planned operation by al-Qaida, but informed the American people of that from the start.
So, we know the official story about the murder of the U.S. ambassador to Libya put forth by the federal government is false. It joins the long and sordid list of lies told to the American people by their elected officials, including the current gross domestic product, the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, the Gulf of Tonkin, Pearl Harbor and the sinkings of the Lusitania and the U.S.S. Maine. Given the length of this list, given what is known and confirmed about U.S. government duplicity, how confident can anyone truly be that the official story is true when it comes to 9/11, Barack Obama or anything else?

In fact, the best reason to doubt that man ever landed on the moon is because the U.S. government asserts this to be the case. I would be less inclined to believe in the existence extraterrestrial alien life if the U.S. government claimed it existed.
Think about your personal life. Once someone has firmly established himself as a liar, are you inclined to assume that he is telling the truth in the future? With the exception of a few very gullible individuals, most people understand that a known liar is not to be trusted. And yet, when it comes to the government, most people seem to assume that an organization they know, beyond any shadow of a doubt, to have lied repeatedly in the past, will tell them the honest and reliable truth in the future.

How does this make any sense?
Now, I am not claiming that 9/11 was actually the work of extraterrestrial aliens who first delivered Barack Obama in their secret base that was never discovered by NASA because the moon landings were faked before bringing down the three World Trade Center buildings and burning a hole in the Pentagon with one of their lunar hyper lasers. But the one thing that I know is that whatever happened on 9/11, and whatever the truth of Obama's nativity might be, the official stories are the only things we can be absolutely certain did not take place.
