Breaking: Charlie Sheen demands Obama meeting on 9/11 cover-up
Normally, when an A-/B+ celebrity issues some political pronouncement at the start of a new television season or just before a movie release, people might suspect it has something to do with publicity.
A lot of rich, pretty people speak out on causes they support at times like that and the world goes, So what?
But when someone with the gravitas of a Charlie Sheen issues a statement, anyone is forced to listen.
In an exclusive contact with the PrisonPlanet.com website, Sheen reveals 1) that he voted for Barack Obama in November and 2) that he [Sheen] has become convinced that the 9/11 attacks were an inside government job perpetrated by people inside government for inside and no doubt nefarious reasons.
The idea being that Osama bin Laden and his posse were (maybe still are?) really working for the U.S. government to help justify faraway wars. (This might also explain why the U.S. government has "so far" been "unable" to capture or kill ObL.)
Sheen apparently figures that if Obama can waste all that time talking to American schoolchildren who can't even vote or pay $2,500 for a Democratic fundraiser yet, the president who garnered so many millions from Hollywood people ought to make time to talk with one of them. Or at least read their letter.
Just in case he doesn't get the Oval Office confab, Sheen has published the fictional transcript of a hypothetical 20-minute conversation with Obama in which the actor instructs the president on the ins and outs of the conspiracy and presents irrefutable evidence on "that bottomless warren of unanswered questions surrounding that day and its aftermath."
As the self-professed agent of change to believe in, Obama, Sheen reasons, should be burrowing into this obvious conspiracy to uncover the truth, unlike previous administrations.
Raising such questions about a 9/11 coverup recently cost green aide Van Jones his White House job. Or the other way around.
Oh and coincidentally, Charlie will appear today on the Alex Jones radio show to discuss his charges.
