In a recent article, Moore writes:
"I am opposed to the building of the 'mosque' two blocks from Ground Zero.
I want it built on Ground Zero..."
Like me, Michael Moore wants to see a mega-mosque with minaret(s) as high as the demolished Towers:
"...But to even have to assure people that 'it's not going to be mosque' is so offensive, I now wish they would just build a 111-story mosque there. That would be better than the lame and disgusting way the developer has left Ground Zero an empty hole until recently."
Then Moore drops a bombshell: "The remains of over 1,100 people still haven't been found." This little-known fact is, all by itself, proof positive that the Towers were destroyed with powerful explosives, which blasted human bodies, office furniture and equipment, filing cabinets, computers, concrete, and everything else except the buildings' steel frames into tiny solid fragments mixed into a sea of dust the consistency of talcum powder -- a six-inch "snowfall" that blanketed Manhattan. Had the Towers simply pancaked down due to gravity, the bodies of every victim, along with all of the office furniture and equipment, would have been found, smashed but basically intact, between the pancaked floors. Instead, there were no pancaked floors at Ground Zero, and only one filing cabinet-- out of many thousands -- was ever found.
According to Ground Zero cleanup worker Joe Casaliggi, Engine 7: "You have two hundred and ten story office buildings. You don't find a desk. You don't find a chair. You don't find a telephone, a computer. The biggest piece of a telephone I found was about half of a keypad and it was about this big [the size of a post-it]."
In short, the contents of the Towers had been pulverized. Nor were there any intact bodies, just tiny bone slivers and bits of flesh that had been blasted to smithereens and, in many cases, propelled hundreds of feet outward and upward to land on the streets and rooftops of neighboring buildings.
At the end of his article, Michael Moore says he will match the first $10,000 raised to help build the mosque he wants built on Ground Zero (though the Burlington Coat Factory site would be better than nothing).
Since Mike and I share a sense of humor and a predilection for political provocation, I think we'd do a great radio show together. Please write to Michael Moore (mike[at]michaelmoore[dot]com) and ask him to contact me (kbarrett[at]merr[dot]com) so I can book him on my radio show. You can mention that I don't mind that he stole my idea -- it's a great idea, after all -- but would appreciate the chance to discuss it with him on the radio!
