According to CNN, 1/9/2013: “Conspiracies abound, Alex Jones will tell you. Bankers pull the strings on world governments to solidify their power. Companies are harming you and ducking responsibility. Antidepressants are “suicide mass murder pills.” President Barack Obama is using drones against Americans.”
"President Barack Obama is using drones against Americans." That’s a "conspiracy" now? Fascinating! Thank goodness we have CNN to correct this horrible misconception.
You see, I had this crazy idea that Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, a 16-year-old U.S. citizen, was a real person. Even sillier, I thought for some bizarre reason that a multitude of news reports in late 2011 confirmed that he had been killed by a drone strike in Yemen without any kind of due process. But this was probably just my imagination.
So with that cleared up and out of the way, I think CNN should do the right thing and help debunk this outrageous conspiracy theory once and for all. CNN should start by writing to The Washington Post and telling them that the birth certificate they published belonging to Abdulrahman al-Awlaki proving he was born in the U.S. is pure nonsense. Additionally, CNN should immediately contact the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and let them know that evidence in a lawsuit they brought against the U.S. government regarding Abdulrahman’s murder is based on fiction — just another crackpot tinfoil conspiracy theory. Oh, and CNN might also want to contact Abdulrahman’s grandfather to let him know that his grandson is probably still alive. Silly grandpa and his senile conspiracies.
Sarcasm aside, maybe it’s CNN that believes in conspiracy theories here if they really think that U.S. citizens being targeted by drones deserves to be written off and tossed in the same category as some of the outrageous crap people like Alex Jones come up with.
18th century instrument to determine the sky’s ‘blueness’ called a Cyanometer:
The simple device was invented in 1789 by Swiss physicist Horace-Bénédict de Saussure and German naturalist Alexander von Humboldt who used the circular array of 53 shaded sections in experiments above the skies over Geneva, Chamonix and Mont Blanc.
