Best actress also wins Dumber than a Post award

Marion Cotillard questions the September 11th attacks and the moon landings

From the UK’s Telegraph:

Oscar-winning Marion Cotillard was facing embarrasment with her new American public last night after it emerged that she doubted the official account of the September 11 attacks. The 32-year-old French star has swept this year’s best actress awards, also receiving a Bafta, Golden Globe and a César for her performance as singer Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose.

“I think we’re lied to about a number of things,” she said, singling out September 11. Referring to the two passenger jets flown into the World Trade Centre, Miss Cotillard said: “We see other towers of the same kind being hit by planes, are they burned? There was a tower, I believe it was in Spain, which burned for 24 hours. It never collapsed. None of these towers collapsed. And there [New York], in a few minutes, the whole thing collapsed.” Miss Cotillard suggested that the towers, planned in the early 1960s, were an outdated “money sucker” which would have cost so much to modernise that it was easier to destroy them.

Turning to America’s space programme, she said: “Did a man really walk on the moon? I saw plenty of documentaries on it, and I really wondered. And in any case I don’t believe all they tell me, that’s for sure.”

Real life is not a movie script, Ms. Cotillard; 9/11 and the moon landings were not just rumors for you to believe or discount.

Stoned again, Willie Nelson joins the 9/11 “truthers”

“Don’t let your cowboys grow up to be babies.” That was Willie Nelson singing during the Super Bowl’s pre-game show. Stoned again, Mr. Nelson also went on the radio recently with the leading 9/11 “truther” and grave robber, Alex Jones.

Before listening to that audio, here are the learned opinions of the folks at Protec Documentation Services, Inc, “the world’s most knowledgeable independent authorities on explosive demolition, having performed engineering studies, structural analysis, vibration/air overpressure monitoring and photographic services on well over 1,000 structure blasting events in more than 30 countries.” On August 8, 2006, their Director of Field Operations, Brent Blanchard, and a Protec team produced a scientific study of the collapses. Concerning WTC Tower 7, they said, in part:

“Seismographs at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in Palisades, New York, recorded the collapses on WTC 1, 2 and 7. This data was later released to the public and currently appears on their website. Additionally, on 9/11 Protec field technicians were utilizing portable field seismographs to continuously record ground vibrations on several construction sites in Manhattan and Brooklyn for liability purposes.

“In all cases where seismographs detected the collapses, waveform readings indicate a single, gradually ascending and descending level of ground vibrations during the event. At no point during 9/11 were sudden or independent vibration “spikes” documented by any seismograph, and we are unaware of any entity possessing such data.

“This evidence makes a compelling argument against explosive demolition. The laws of physics dictate that any detonation powerful enough to defeat steel columns would have transferred excess energy through those columns into the ground, and would have certainly been detected by at least one of the monitors that were sensitive enough to record the structural collapses. However, a detailed analysis of all available data reveals no presence of any unusual or abnormal events.”
