Point/counterpoint: Truthers vs. Al Qaeda on who’s responsible for 9/11

posted at 7:30 pm on March 31, 2008 by Allahpundit

Bittersweet for the Ron Paul supporters, comedy gold for everyone else. This is the third cameo by the Onion’s “Al Qaeda” representative, if memory serves. His best yet, or worst? They’re all so good, I can’t even rank them anymore.

Eh, call me a grouch, I still don’t find 9/11 a funny subject.

Rhinoboy on March 31, 2008 at 7:51 PM

Why would they kill 3000 of their own infidels?

QUOTE OF THE YEAR
This NEEDS to be moved to Top Picks. Awesome.

If he was smart to plan all of this, you know, why is his approval rating in “el haman”?

Yes, I agree. But, truffers…they are hilarious.

True. However, I can’t help to love to see 9/11 conspiracy theorists portrayed as complete suckers.

work.

canopfor on March 31, 2008 at 9:02 PM

I love this line because its thrown back at truthers.

“Why are you being so closed minded to this,Sir?

“How would you like it if you spent,you know two months
in a mountain caves sleeping on rocks”!

canopfor on March 31, 2008 at 9:18 PM

“Talking to you is like talking to a goat!”

I’m still wiping the beer from my keyboard.

“It’s funny because it’s true”

BUT…….. there is nothing funny about the lives lost on 09/11/2001

Seven Percent Solution on March 31, 2008 at 9:59 PM

Very funny!

Bob's Kid on March 31, 2008 at 10:02 PM

p40tiger on March 31, 2008 at 11:03 PM

Nice takedown of the short bus’ conspiracy.

Al-Qaeda was an inside job?

Their fallback.

(Or is that Blowback?)

profitsbeard on March 31, 2008 at 11:38 PM

Something funny:
If you type in “al qaeda” in your Google toolbar, the first suggestion is “al qaeda in iraq”.

Boy, wait til their bosses find out. The truth keeps leaking out in all the wrong places.

Al Qaeda Says It Carried Out September 11th Attacks

Per OBL,”We calculated in advance the number of casualties from the enemy who would be killed based on the position of the tower. We calculated that the floors that would be hit would be three or four floors. I was the most optimistic of them all. (…Inaudible…) Due to my experience in this field, I was thinking that the fire from the gas in the plane would melt the iron structure of the building and collapse the area where the plane hit and all the floors above it only. This is all that we had hoped for”

State Department War Propoganda I guess.

Hey, BTW, I’m selling war Bonds. Anybody want a few?

faraway on March 31, 2008 at 11:53 PM

LOL @ “Why is Osama Bin Laden hiding in…..somewhere”

JVelez on April 1, 2008 at 8:23 AM

What’s funny about this is that this is exactly the way one of these truthers would act and speak. Exactly. They nailed it.

And we laugh to keep from crying.

NoDonkey on April 1, 2008 at 8:51 AM

mattyj86 on April 1, 2008 at 11:33 AM

“Why is Osama hiding in a cave in . . . somewhere.” Loved it!

“Look I have proof. I have signed vouchers for flight schools!”
Funny stuff.

Geronimo on April 1, 2008 at 2:15 PM

I think the Kentucky Fried Movie terminology should apply when it is satire, i.e. “Count – PointerCount”.
