I want you to take a gander at an excerpt from an msnbc article about the bomb blast in Norway:

Olaf Furniss, a freelance journalist in Oslo, told BBC News that people he had spoken to feared it was a terrorist attack.

The BBC reported residents as saying there was a smell of sulfur in the air and asked Furniss about this.

"I was in New York three weeks after 9/11, there was still a lingering smell [and] I would compare it to that, it's very similar to that," he replied.


Oh, but hold on there, pardner. Don't forget that what brought the twin towers down was two airplanes and their load of fuel, and stuff that was burnable in the buildings – and nothing more. How could you have smelled sulfur in the air of New York City if 9/11 had nothing to do with bombs, hmmm?

Wonder how many others smelled sulfur in the days and weeks following 9/11, and failed to report it. Or -- if they did report it, why wasn't it considered newsworthy?

Wow, this is an eye opener. I didn't catch that detail. However, I'm glad to hear it. It proves again that whatever the power and influence of the powers that be, they can't eradicate every trace of everything they might want to be left unknown, thus following your thesis that we ought not to give them too much credit.
