VDare Shoots Self In Foot, Reloads

Yesterday I wrote about Paul Craig Roberts of and his article supporting 9/11 "Truth" at Paul Buchanan's paleocon website.

Today Lawrence Auster of View from the Right weighs in.  He writes:
In a long article at Vdare, Paul Craig Roberts, a regular writer at that site and close friend of its editor, Peter Brimelow, argues that the flames started by the explosion of the airliners as they crashed into the North and South towers of the World Trade Center could not have weakened the structural steel and caused the buildings to fall. Therefore, continues Roberts, in addition to the planes flown by Muslim hijackers, there had to have been explosives planted inside the buildings set to go off shortly after the planes crashed into them, a fact that the U.S. government has been furiously covering up for the past eight years, because it was the U.S. government itself, led at the time by George W. Bush, that planted the explosives, organized the 9/11 attack, and worked in concert with Muhammad Atta, Khalid Sheik Muhammad, Osama bin Laden to carry the attacks off.
Isn't it great the way Vdare not only serves as the cutting edge of the immigration restriction movement, but also keeps finding new ways to raise the profile of immigration restrictionism so that more and more of America's best minds will be drawn to it? Who but Peter Brimelow could have thought of the genius stroke of combining immigration restrictionism with 9/11 Trutherism, as a way of bringing restrictionism from the despised margins into the American mainstream?
Needless to say, Larry's second paragraph is pure sarcasm.  Read it all here.
