For anyone who has read my rants on 9-11 you know that I make frequent reference to a man named Jim Fetzer, a UMD professor. For anyone questioning the research and cognitive abilities of this man, I offer the following. Fetzer's analysis of one page of Gerald Posner's book Case Closed which basically was a book saying that Oswald shot JFK by himself.
From the article:
Again, shows that Fetzer is not the nut job that some websites make him out to be. He is a very thoughtful person who looks in-depth at things and makes logical connections to support his point of view. All we should ask is that those advancing their own beliefs make statements which are just as plausible.
Fallacy # 7: page 104, lines 24 to 27:
Posner: "The Carcano's bullets, 6.5 millimeter shells, are 30 to 50 percent heavier than the average bullet of that diameter, and travel with the same velocity, 2,100 feet per second, as the Russian AK-47 assault rifle."
This combines an appeal to popular sentiments with a faulty analogy. The Russian AK-47 is a familiar sounding weapon that is widely believed to be an excellent assault rifle. Thus, if the Mannlicher-Carcano fires projectiles with the same velocity as the AK-47, it must be an excellent weapon too. That is the appeal to popular sentiments. An assault rifle is designed to put out a large number of rounds in a short space of time, however, and would be a hopeless choice for an assassination from the sixth floor of a warehouse or an office building. Notice that, if the analogy were carried through more exactly-if the Mannlicher-Carcano fires projectiles with the same velocity as the AK-47, it must be an excellent assault rifle-then it falls apart. He might as well contend that various quality weapons have barrels of similar length as the Mannlicher-Carcano (stocks made of material similar to that of the Mannlicher-Carcano, etc.), but they would all be roughly on a par in their argumentative force: plausible but misleading.
For example: The fact that the World Trade Center building
Simply put: What is not possible cannot happen.
I will continue reading Jim Fetzer.
