Why I hate Troofers

We all hate 9/11 "Truthers". Their conspiracy theory illogic and furious ranting is insulting, annoying, and generally devoid of anything resembling value. But this post isn't really about them.

It's about the US torture ships that we're just starting to find out about. Floating prisons involved in extraordinary rendition. The information this far is tentative, unconfirmed, but there's the glimmer of what may be a real conspiracy.

And this is what I hate about Troofers. They foam and froth and waste so much effort on idiocy, when there are very real conspiracies that are worthy of investigation. If their fervor could be tied to intellectual rigor, investigative journalism, and, y'know, reality, we might be able to, as a nation, really learn to control and monitor our public servants.
