"Professors of Paranoia?
Academics give a scholarly stamp to 9/11 conspiracy theories"

Chronicle of Higher Education (subscription), June 23, 2006
http://chronicle.com/weekly/v52/i42/42a01001.htm

Nearly five years have gone by since it happened. The trial of Zacarias Moussaoui is over. Construction of the Freedom Tower just began. Oliver Stone's movie about the attacks is due out in theaters soon. And colleges are offering degrees in homeland-security management. The post-9/11 era is barreling along. And yet a whole subculture is still stuck at that first morning. They are playing and replaying the footage of the disaster, looking for clues that it was an "inside job." They feel sure the post-9/11 era is built on a lie.
