Yesterday, Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen appeared on the Alex Jones radio show to join "a growing army of other highly credible public figures in questioning the official story of 9/11." Even more surprising than discovering that anchoring CBS's Monday night sitcom lineup makes someone a "credible public figure" (Doogie, apparently, was too busy running lines about his magic shirt on the How I Met Your Mother set to share his thoughts) was Sheen's discussion of conspiracy theories about the terror attacks, recounted at InfoWars.com:
"It seems to me like 19 amateurs with box cutters taking over four commercial airliners and hitting 75% of their targets, that feels like a conspiracy theory. It raises a lot of questions." [...]
"I was up early and we were gonna do a pre-shoot on Spin City, the show I used to do, I was watching the news and the north tower was burning. I saw the south tower hit live, that famous wide shot where it disappears behind the building and then we see the tremendous fireball."
"There was a feeling, it just didn't look any commercial jetliner I've flown on any time in my life and then when the buildings came down later on that day I said to my brother 'call me insane, but did it sorta look like those buildings came down in a controlled demolition?"
We assume that the brother Sheen called is noted actor, writer, and director Emilio Estevez (after all, who cares what Ramon thinks?), whose response to his post-attack skepticism was not noted in the interview, robbing us of the two-Sheen consensus that would precipitate the widespread acceptance of the Charlie-endorsed theory. Where are you, Emilio, when we need a voice of sanity to make sense of an increasingly complex world?
[Note: The InfoWars site has a link to audio of the interview (someone we trust listened to the interview yesterday and assured us it was either Sheen or an amazing impersonator) in their story, but it's not working at the moment, perhaps the result of a bandwidth hit from a brief Drudging yesterday.]
