The authors were surprised to discover that:
The new study by Wood and Douglas suggests that the negative stereotype – a hostile fanatic wedded to the truth of his own fringe theory – “accurately describes the people who defend the official account of 9/11, not those who dispute it.
Psychologist Laurie Manwell of the University of Guelph points out, in an article published in American Behavioral Scientist (2010), that anti-conspiracy people are unable to think clearly about such apparent state crimes against democracy as 9/11 due to their inability to process information that conflicts with pre-existing belief.
The extreme irrationality of those who attack ‘conspiracy theories’ has been ably exposed by Communications professors Ginna Husting and Martin Orr in a 2007 peer-reviewed article entitled ‘Dangerous Machinery: Conspiracy Theorist as a Transpersonal Strategy of Exclusion’.
He believes that we were wrong to get involved in those two countries.
He believes that we were lied to about Afghanistan being a threat and about Iraq having weapons of mass destruction.
In that sense, he has seen the light.
BUT, he still believes the official 9 11 story.
He refuses to believe that 9 11 was an inside job.
He says he no longer believes what is in the mainstream media, and yet his views on 9 11 come entirely from the mainstream media!
In that sense he is still brainwashed.
However, I once met an old soldier, who was linked to a Gladio-style group, who said that the London Bombings were quite likely an inside-job.
