I don't think there can be any doubt that the Nigeria-to-Detroit underpants gnome was part of some kind of conspiracy. I start with a young Muslim male buying a ticket with cash and carrying minimal baggage. There are enough red flags without all the prior warnings and the "Indian man in a nicely dressed suit" who apparently got Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab on the plane without a passport. If you want some fun, try that yourself (but be prepared to spend some time in detention!).

Sadly for his reputation, neither does James Randi. Funding for the sceptics comes from Big Oil and the usual Axis of Evil think tanks associated with various religious nuts (creationists), anti-environmentalism, and even Big Tobacco. Referring to one such abomination:

"

A long interview with the current star in JFK research, Doug Horne, some of it about a possible specific alteration to the Zapruder film.
