  1. To make a quick valuable point regarding Margolis assumptions re 9/11; three buildings collapse on the same day, unprecedently, in the same manner, which if they were unaided, would be impossible.

  2. Scott, when you said the reason the FBI didn’t investigate Bin Laden was because it was “an act of war”, you left out the rest of what Ventura said, “the FBI said they didn’t have enough evidence”. Also, Scott when are you going to debunk Alex Jones in an interview? After all he’s far bigger than AntiWar.com. What takes you guys 14 days to raise, he did in 12 hours couple of months ago. THERE’S A REASON.

  3. Horton asks: “what the hell are these people doing?” They are doing the same thing that they always do… manipulating gullible people with jingoistic, patriotic, BS. Americans are amongst the most gullible people on the planet. They willingly give their obesiance to a government who is screwing them while it claims to be protecting them from vacuous and intangible threats. Follow the $$$.

  4. I like listening to Scott to get a different point of view that doesn’t rely on 911 being an inside job. i’ve been figuring that with all the knowledgable people he knows and info he covers he has a better idea than I.

    I’m starting to wonder if certain sites and personalities just make the choice on to come out of the 911 closet based on political decisions like funding, ( however meager ), visibility, and general reputation.

    It is worth noting that he has tagged none of his podcasts with 911, or september 11. This seems odd for obvious reasons.

    Maybe he understands that you can be more influencial by not “going conspiracy” and just focusing on all the other illegal activity that goes on. It certainley does erode the trust in the establishment; which is the first step towards waking up to corruption in the U.S..

    Of the few arguments of Scott’s that I’ve heard regarding 911 and supporting the official conspiracy he does not delve into much detail or touch building 7, amalgam virgo, or architects and engineers for 911 truth.

    I think ignoring the posibility that there could be more to the story is far more dangerous than supporting it.

    I find it facinating that Scott can entertain the idea of corrupt administrations sending thousands off to their deaths in war an killing 500,000 minimum people “over there” because the administration was just stupid, greedy, and warmongering and NOT believe that they could go one step further and provoke or stage 911 in order to gain moral support for their plan. In other words if they can make the decision to kill so many of us and them in the wars then it should not be hard to believe that they would kill 3000 more americans.

    Either way scott I still enjoy gleeming info from your guests. Keep it coming.

  5. 9/11 Truth is the key to disengaging our hands from the wolf’s ears. By denouncing the psychopaths in our own midst who are the real villains of 9/11, we can show the world America has the maturity to stop the madness we were tricked into starting. And they will help us.

  6. Good interview, Scott. Eric Margolis is one of my favorites. I only wish one thing, that he had elaborated more on the US advisors. I’ve known that they have been there for years and I read that they were all in Tblisi at the time of Saakashvili’s incredibly stupid stunt. I wished he had verified that, as I would like to think the our folks on the ground aren’t anywhere near as stupid as the Bush administration is. The Russians have claimed that foreign advisors were with the Georgians. I wonder if they could have been Israelis?

  7. [...] Empire of Insanity Eric Margolis interviewed by Scott Horton [...]

  8. I thank Antiwar.com for a fascinating interview with Mr. Margolis. His comments and insights were, I believe, right on the money. This interview was just more proof that our ruling establishment has finally devolved into a bunch of certifiable nut jobs. Sooner or later, if the American people don’t find a way to regain control of their government, our insane ruling class is going to commit a very grave miscalculation. And, that could mean the end of civilization. It is time to dismantle our worldwide empire of military bases. It is time reestablish a sane foreign policy. I pray that God will help us to accomplish those goals before it is too late.
