Bush and Cheney by David Ray Griffin.jpg

Fifteen years ago, when the 9-11 “Truther” movement was in the full flush of its strength, David Ray Griffin was its most creditable and least likely mouthpiece. Griffin displayed none of the visual clues that came standard with most of his other conspiracy “researchers” – no thousand-yard stare of the perennially ignored, no permanent sheen of cold forehead-sweat, no foghorn-monotone honed over decades or entire lifetimes of speaking nonsense to power, and most noticeable of all, none of that furtive feel of opportunism that differentiates the con man from true believer.
