I remember he said the truth people were "nuts" and felt confident the official story that cave-dwelling Arab terrorists did it (not his words). I gotta say I lost a lot of respect for him, not only for fully believing the official story, but for the fact that someone who I thought was very open-minded is close minded on this subject because of blind loyalty to our leadership.
Do you think it's possible he has since changed his mind? After all, his country that he loves so much didn't treat him with much respect when he wanted his wife to be able to move to America.
Many people who originally thought truthers were nuts are now scratching their heads and saying, "Well, maybe...." Art could be among them. I certainly don't think he's afflicted with a tendency toward blind loyalty; it's understandable when a person first hears of a monstrous thing done by the government you thought were the good guys--it's hard to believe. After a few years of monstrous things and ridiculous explanations, you come to understand your government does not respect you, the citizen, and that Joel Skousen was right about one thing: we ARE the Bully of the World.
Now on your other topic, the former INS, Immigration and Naturalization Service, now Homeland Security is a Gestapo with low IQ. They are completely insouciant to anyone's opinion of their operations. They could care less. I worked for an immigration attorney for a while and saw government behavior that was so unbelievable callous it nauseated me for a week. For example, one young immigrant couple, very young, scraped together $195 for an application to change their status. She was pregnant and worked as a maid, he worked as a dishwasher. Homeland Security failed to process their paperwork for over a year, then sent them a notice that they had to reapply because their time limit had passed. They didn't have the money, the baby was due, so she had to go live with her parents to have the baby. He stayed behind because he couldn't give up his job. When I left that law office, this young man had never seen his baby and the couple had been separated for more than six months waiting, waiting, waiting. And that's common--COMMON!
When the government takes no responsibility for its own mistakes, when there is no accountability, no heads roll, no prosecutions, then that lack of values creeps throughout the society and then the lights go out and goodbye America. We will be a cement third world country and our owners (the Chinese) will show up to renovate their land and hire us to do the laundry.
