Charlie Sheen Questions Official 911 Story
An interview with actor Charlie Sheen regarding his controversial views on 9/11 has started to garner some mainstream media attention, RAW STORY has found.
On Monday, Sheen, star of the CBS sitcom "Two and a Half Men" and the multiple Oscar-winning film Platoon, talked with GCN Radio Network's "The Alex Jones Show," and explained why he had trouble believing the "official 9/11 story" advanced by the Bush Administration and the 9/11 Commission (link).
"It's like they want to pigeonhole all of us into conspiracy nutbags when we're not debating things that are related to UFO's bringing down the towers or Building 7 or the Pentagon and so its feels like there's things in there that we’re not the conspiracy theorists on this particular issue," said Sheen. "It seems to me like 19 amateurs with box cutters taking over four commercial airliners and hitting 75 percent of their targets: that feels like a conspiracy theory."
CNN's Showbiz Tonight played extended segments from the Sheen interview Wednesday night (Windows Media video link), then followed it up with an extended discussion on some of the "unanswered questions" with a producer of a National Geographic documentary on 9/11 and the Media Coordinator of 911Truth.org.
"I'm one of these people who believes that anyone who takes everything that has been spoonfed to us by the government, from wherever, about what happened on 9/11 is being naive," Showbiz Tonight anchor A.J. Hammer admitted during the broadcast. "When I say this to people sometimes, they look at me like I'm kind of nuts."
Earlier Wednesday, Jones complained of a "mainstream media blackout" on the Sheen interview.
"Despite a huge reaction amongst the alternative media to Charlie Sheen's comments on 9/11, in part due to a brief link on the Drudge Report which was mysteriously pulled after a few hours, newswires and entertainment outlets have actively sought to impose a blackout on the story," Jones and Paul Joseph Watson wrote at Prison Planet.
According to Jones and Watson, a major wire service expressed interest in running an article, but Jeff Williams of the LA Associated Press office allegedly informed them "I know all about Charlie Sheen and I don't care what he says" before cutting off the phone call.
The Sheen story ran at a few conservative Websites on Wednesday including Human Events Online and Red State, referring to Jones' radio show as "left wing" or "liberal."
Sheen's interview has started to become fodder for the gossip columnists. Thursday's edition of the New York Post contains a Page Six item on Sheen (link), though The Defamer, an online gossip site based in Los Angeles, first wrote it up on Tuesday.
"Charlie Sheen has joined the 9/11 gone-bonkers brigade," reads the Post. "The "Two and a Half Men" star gave a bizarre interview on GGN Radio Network's conspiracy-minded "The Alex Jones Show," in which he suggested that the federal government was covering up what "really" happened."
Also on Thursday, the Boston Herald took note of the story, in its "Inside Track" section (link), calling Sheen the "estranged husband of Denise Richards, who is better known for his affinity for prostitutes and gambling than his Homeland Security credentials."
Many outlets may be shying away from the interview due to fear of being associated with the controversial Alex Jones, who has written extensively about a purported plot by several governments to compose a "New World Order." According to Wikipedia, Jones rejects being labelled a "conspiracy theorist" and prefers to be known as an "independent investigative journalist."
"Let me say that I've been a fan of yours for a long time," Sheen told Jones in the interview. "I've been a fan of your documentaries. Your research is tireless and it's interesting because a lot of these guys you sort of look behind their notes and you start to discover their inconsistencies in a lot of the claims they are making which torpedoes the credibility of most of their substance, but with you that is not the case."
Additional excerpts from the Sheen interview taken from a transcript made by Human Events Online:
"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'?"
"Everybody is now familiar with the famous Andrew Card/Bush ear whisper at the elementary school, that whole incident is problematic to me. It was broadcast three days in advance -- his schedule. So conservatively, if that event was broadcast live, how many people in the state of Florida knew where he was at that specific point in time? If he was being informed -- the second plane hit, America was being attacked -- isn't he then putting everyone in his immediate circle at a great risk? It seems to me upon the revelation of that news that the secret service would grab the president and remove him as of he were on fire from that room."
"Because strategies don't go together overnight for a major invasion, they are very well calculated and very well planned, at least in this government…in a statement that Bush made following, "What did you think when the first plane hit?" and he said he was watching it like everyone else."
"I guess that’s one of the perks of being president, you get access to TV channels that don’t exist in the known universe."

Britain’s Vegan population today is estimated at over 250,000 but in the early days like most pioneers,was widely criticised. Donald outlived all his critics dying at age 95, yet his childhood was wracked with illness, and concluded while watching the k.i.l.l.i.n.g of squealing hysterical pigs on his uncles farm, in 1924 that farming was wrong, He gave up dairy produce18 years later after studying the biological mechanics of milk production, and shortened the term “vegetarian” to “Vegan” to apply the spiritual principles of brotherhood to the animal kingdoms. Along with his brother and sister, Donald had the spiritual strength to become a conscientious objector, this with his being a non smoker and tea-total, meant hostility from authority figures all his life. Donald felt that a Vegan lifestyle was the healthiest, and that all life was sacred, He could not abide animal cruelty in any form. He would enjoy his retirement with cycling, fell walking, leading guided walks and gardening in which he would always use a fork, never use a spade in case he hurt an earthworm. Donald never took medicine because of the links to animal testing and vivisection, At age 93 he said; “never having taken d.r.u.g.s. orthodox or fringe, I am proof that after a weak childhood in a meat eating family, vegetarianism works” His ambition was to die peacefully in sleep, when his body was worn out.

Congresswoman Says America Run By Criminal Syndicate McKinney: American citizens could be put in forced labor camps
Cynthia McKinney, the only House Representative to stand up to the Bush White House crime syndicate, has gone further than ever before in her efforts to warn people about what the Neo-Cons' ultimate goals actually entail for freedom in America.
During a recent radio interview on the Alex Jones Show, McKinney illustrated the nature of a corrupt occupational government, stating that the administration was "stolen in 2000 and stolen again in 2004." McKinney said that it was doing the government a favor to describe them as a "criminal syndicate."
"It appears to me that our country is literally being hollowed out....our economy is being hollowed out," said McKinney.
McKinney shared Alex Jones' fears and those previously voiced by Republican Congressman Ron Paul, that Americans may be arrested and taken to forced labor camps in light of recent developments confirming Kellogg Brown and Root have secured a government contract to build the camps.
Regarding 9/11, McKinney lent credibility to the 9/11 truth scholars who recently came forth with empirical evidence proving that the official story is a fallacy.
"It's clear that something was terribly amiss on that day with our people who were in charge....they didn't even follow standard operating procedure," said McKinney and the Congresswoman agreed that US authorities stood down on 9/11.
Covering the subject of worldwide human trafficking and sex slavery, a practice embraced by Dyncorp and lobbied for by Halliburton subsidiary representatives, McKinney responded by saying, "they steal elections with the same ease that they steal women and little girls."
McKinney made headlines two years ago when she directly confronted Donald Rumsfeld about the US government's collaboration with companies that engage in human trafficking and the four wargames held on September 11.
McKinney highlighted the MK Ultra program as a past example of where the US government had experimented with turning US soldiers into killing machines and expressed her sadness that some troops were apparently under a similar influence in light of the alarming incidents at Fort Bragg.
McKinney is spearheading a movement to have all records pertaining to the death of Martin Luther King released. McKinney said that King was clearly murdered.
"A jury said in 1999 that it was a US government conspiracy, including the highest individuals at the highest levels of the United States government. I have no reason to disbelieve them."
"If they would do that then to Martin Luther King Jnr. at a stage now where we have a law that defines enemy combatants, we all could be enemy combatants just by dissenting from what this administration does and they could do the same thing to us."
McKinney scorned the federal government for their actions following Hurricane Katrina.
"The American people were once again abandoned, they were abandoned by their own government and Secretary Michael Chertoff has gotten off scott free on this."
"They needed food and water and instead they were sent men with guns and Blackwater mercenaries were hired to patrol the streets of New Orleans. This is criminal! How can we have mercenaries patrolling the streets of America?"
"You had an administration that was AWOL and they had the nerve to bring other folks up on criminal charges for even being conscientious objectors."
