Palin continued: "Obviously, we gotta stand with our North Korean allies," when Beck interrupted and corrected her to say "South Korea." "And we're also bound by prudence to stand with our South Korean allies, yes," she responded.

Andrew Napolitano, Fox Business Host, Reveals He Is a 9/11 Truther

Andrew Napolitano, Fox Business Host, Reveals He Is a 9/11 Truther 24 Nov 2010 Fox Business host Andrew Napolitano revealed on Tuesday that he does not believe the government's account of the 9/11 attacks. Napolitano, who hosts "Freedom Watch" on Fox Business and is frequently seen on Fox News as a legal analyst, told radio host Alex Jones that the attacks "couldn't possibly have been done the way the government told us." The subject came about when Jones noted that Geraldo Rivera had recently raised questions about the collapse of World Trade Center 7 on Napolitano's Fox Business Show. 9/11 conspiracy theorists have centered on that building's collapse, contending that it was blown up by government forces. [It was. Sorry, but physics and math don't lie. You'd have to shave 50 points off your IQ to believe the conspiracy theories surrounding the 9/11 terror attacks postulated by the US government to garner support for the never-ending 'war on terror.' Put SSA Hotchner onto the case and have it solved in 44 minutes. --LRP]
