The fact that a hundred (or even a thousand) people need to be "in on it" does not prove or disprove anything.

Truthers = Mentally Illness

It’s not sort of fun…..a crazy ex president decided to blow up people from his own country….do not see the fun man!!!

Chris - Sol Mon April 16, 2019 - 1:14 am

Rubin thinks it’s “fun” to entertain the possibility that 9/11 is not what the public has been told? No, it’s not fun. It’s not crazy. Sometimes it’s simply REALITY.

What a fucking joke of a journalist. Nothing but mainstream homo trash.

This man is full of of own self importance, has he read any serious work or research on 9/11?? It does nit sound like, he should read christopher boylan or ryan dawson. He us not a skeptic he is believer of whatever narrative is being spouted. Does he he know the hijakers where such devout muslim believers they were out getting drunk and partying with strippers., i dint think i can watch much more of his self important bullshit. And if he wants to know the truth about about jfk, 9/11, pearl harbour dint just listen to the conspuracy kooks of which there are plenty try reading or listeni g to real journalists like James corbett of the corbett report, ryan dawson of ANC report or the Sgtreport as these people are the new jonn pilger or woodward and bernstien.
What is he 'skeptical' about??

Dire Straitz April 16, 2019 - 1:14 am

Bullshit. The CIA learned to compartmentalize knowledge so that the truth does get out when they decide to marginalize theorists. You think Lincoln's assassination was a conspiracy but JFK was done by a flunkie shooting with quality unparalleled by top marksmen since.
And yeah bldg 7 dumbass.

Neurodegenerat April 16, 2019 - 1:14 am

Look! He debunked WTC 7 free fall! Again!

"More on the left" better stated as Moron the left.

Kadie Johnson April 16, 2019 - 1:14 am

I have watched this guy debate a 911 truther and he is intellectually dishonest. He knocks down his own straw man arguments & makes red herrings galore. He uses smug disparaging remarks to avoid the real questions.
Questions like – can a 47 story modern steel frame skyscraper fall symmetrically through itself in 7 to 8 seconds due to office fires on a few floors? Well, that is exactly what happened to building 7 on 911. Look at AE 911 video "experts speak out".
YES, LOOK at what the debunkers have to say, but LOOK AT THE EVIDENCE FOR YOURSELF.

PAtrick Del April 16, 2019 - 1:14 am

Reading all the comments from idiot conspiracy theorists was the best part of this video! Wow, you people need some anti-psychotics.

Kmarty2000 April 16, 2019 - 1:14 am

WARNING! Trolls and dips ahead. Michael Shermer doesn't believe God exists. Any questions?

reefergladness April 16, 2019 - 1:14 am

how can you NOT be sceptical about the Warren Report? The Single Bullet Theory? Jack Ruby's motive? on and on it goes…

Johnny Chunders April 16, 2019 - 1:14 am

Why would two too-comfortable conservatives who have a total vested interest in government and corporations, and are apologists for the worst that this world has to offer be authorities on "debunking" "conspiracies"?

look at the collapse of WTC building 7 on youtube and ask if you believe the government agency NIST 's so called study that the failure of a single intersection caused the global collapse of this 600 foot skyscraper!!! best source on YT: "NIST Finally Admits Freefall!" AND OR "Experts speak out/The Final Cut!"

9/11 truthers are mostly insane dirtbags, but some are just insane. I'm starting a Mental hospitals for truthers movement.

CoolhandLukeSkywalkr April 16, 2019 - 1:14 am

TYT tries to smear this guy, probably because he was the only talent they ever had, and he went on to do greater things!

9/11 Truthers are Retards April 16, 2019 - 1:14 am

I find watching conspiracy videos fun like watching Bourne identity or enemy of the state. not sure if it's true or not cbf doing research to prove just gonna sit back and let the world sort it out. just enjoy watching conspiracy videos as they are very entertaining like a thriller genre.

The Official Conspiracy Theory
The official conspiracy, proposing that 19 so-called "hijackers" armed with box cutters taking orders from a dying man in a cave halfway across the world, defeated the most sophisticated intelligence gathering and military power the world has ever known…now THAT is absurd.

It is the most absurd conspiracy theory I have ever heard of.
Shermer proposes the same old lame sophistry about the numbers of people that would be involve would mean that keeping the operation secret would be impossible. This assertion is utter bullshit. All operations, both corporate and military are done on a "need to know" basis, with only those in direct 'chain of command' have all the knowledge of. In military ops secrecy oaths are signed by participants in operations, both planning and operational personnel.

People who do not grasp these simple facts are silly and gullible, and are easily duped by the type of specious rhetorical sophistry spewed by "service intellectuals" — read disinformation agents, such as Michael Shermer.

Michael Shermer manages to win a straw man argument against himself, with the help of Rubin.

“The 9/11 events were an instance of the strategy of tension enacted by political and economic powers in the USA to seek advantages for the oil and arms industries.” — Judge Ferdinando Imposimato

"The more people that have to be involved…"~Shermer, This is such a trite and scurrilous argument that shills use all the time.
They ignore the concept of "Need to Know" & "Compartmentalization" that is standard operating procedure for any covert action, or project meant to remain secret. Only the top people know the entire plan and how the parts fit together.
Shermer pretends that hundreds, or even thousands of people would need to have been knowingly involved, but this defies the way things really work in business, military activities, and intelligence activities. It is a foolish argument and Shermer should know better than to try to pass it off as reasonable.
But a lot of ignorant chumps still fall for this cheesy crap from disinforments like Shermer.
