Can I smear feces on your front door?

...and then "keep it there, until we arrive at a logical conclusion of what feces is, whether it's unhealthy, what the bran content of it is, and if the current social mores about feces are justified" ?

Bottom line: there's a version of what happened that's largely accepted at this point. Sure, it changes as we gather more information. If, after gathering lots of information, people want to form alternate theories about what happened, they're free to do so. [Side note: I'd suggest Rense.com, Alex Jones' website, or other conspiracy-oriented outlets for bouncing those ideas around. Linking them to the Ron Paul movement is irresponsible.]

But in the mean time, DECLARING (that's what the title of the thread does, it doesn't speculate or ask questions: it DECLARES his version to be reality) what happened - particularly when that declaration accuses our government of collaborating with a foreign country and killing 12 Americans - without any real evidence, is not something this movement should tolerate.
