    Paul Sperry, the author of the Saudi/911 piece, is a Muslims-under-the-bed wingnut who co-authored the WND-published 2009 book “Muslim Mafia” with David Gaubatz. I’m not sure he should be considered a reliable source (the fact that it’s the New York Post is another red flag…)

    • I sort of view these sorts of lists the same way my spouse calls me over to the tv to watch a Youtube video. Sometimes it’s a cute cat video & sometimes it’s some nutball conspiracy theorist spouting crazy stuff, and I wind up not even hearing half of what’s being said over the roaring laughter. ;o)
