Salon Going 9/11 Truther?

New piece contrasts wacko Sandy Hook trutherism with 9/11 theories and complains that the latter get mocked too often, painted with the same brush (even tough Alex Jones pushing both).   Also claims JFK conspiracy claims have been vindicated.  Really?  One excerpt:
What concerns me about the repudiation of the Hookers is that the 9/11 Truthers are being tarred with the same “crackpot” brush. Yes, many of the September Eleventh conspiracy theories are implausible, and too often veer, as conspiracy theories unfortunately tend to do, toward the anti-Semitic. But unlike with Sandy Hook, 9/11 conspiracy theories flow from a scientific fact: whatever the 9/11 Commission Report might claim, fire generated by burning jet fuel is not hot enough to melt steel.

Greg, the Salon piece is pretty straightforward and rational.
Why disparage those who have studied 9/11 and come to the conclusion the official story is not credible?

I don't call myself a Truther, nor do I call you a Gatekeeper.

Thanks for the link.
