Joseph Cannon

Alex: I read Joseph Cannon's column on the SLA, and it repeats some of the work done by Mae Brussell years ago. What do you think of Cannon? - Gina

Not much. Less that that. The column you mention only confirms a few points raised by Mae, and he insults her memory in the process by assuming that he is capable of judging her, and he isn't.

Cannon's comments weren't peer review, because he is not her peer.

Anyone who claims that 9/11 forensic research detracts from understanding the CIA & drugs is out to lunch and will never return. Cannon, Hopsicker's tag team partner, is engaging in opinion formation and can't possibly believe his own argument. It's intended to manipulate, reinforce Hopsicker's spin, reinforce the emphasis on bin Laden.

What do drugs have to do with 9/11?

Didn't he write the column claiming that Barbara Bush is the illegitimate daughter of Aleister Crowley?

And he calls Mae Brussell "loopy." ...

And his absolute certainty that the World Trade Center was not taken down by controlled demolition is positively hopsickerian. Cannon presents himself as an informed columnist, fancies himself a gatekeeper, but what he doesn't know hurts him.
