Clowns & Jokers

Stuck in the middle.... Left, right, centre. It's a mess out there.

The BBC has corrected a report written in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks which has been cited by conspiracy theorists. It relates to the 'confusion at the time surrounding the names and identities of some of the hijackers.

'This confusion was widely reported and was also acknowledged by the FBI' according to the Beeb.
'The story has been cited ever since by some as evidence that the 9/11 attacks were part of a US government conspiracy'.

In an 'effort' to correct the assumptions made they have amended the copy underneath the photo which alluded to one of the suspected hijackers being alive and well in Morocco. It turned out to be a case of mistaken identity. The emphasis around the word 'suspects' and 'alive and well', however, remains incorrect.

Read the comments and weep.
