Charlie Sheen Is A Nut Job

March 23rd, 2006 // 126 Comments

Sheen032206Why on earth does a marginally talented actor like Charlie Sheen have to express his conspiracy theories? What’s up with comments like this; “I guess one of the perks of being President is that you get access to TV channels that don’t exist in the known universe?” Um, okay freak job.

It appears that actor Charlie Sheen has joined the chorus of conspiracy theorists that believe the attacks on 9/11 are not exactly as America watched unfold on live TV.

I saw the south tower hit live, that famous wide shot where it disappears behind the building and then we see the tremendous fireball.”

“There was a feeling, it just didn’t look any commercial jetliner I’ve flown on any time in my life and then when the buildings came down later on that day I said to my brother ‘call me insane, but did it sorta look like those buildings came down in a controlled demolition’?”

But he wasn’t finished as he gives more conspiracy theories in the interview. Sheen questioned President Bush’s actions on 9/11 and his location at the Booker Elementary School in Florida.

“It seems to me that upon the revelation of that news that the secret service would grab the President as if he was on fire and remove him from that room,” said Sheen.

“I guess one of the perks of being President is that you get access to TV channels that don’t exist in the known universe,” said Sheen.

“It might lead you to believe that he’d seen similar images in some type of rehearsal as it were, I don’t know.”

And as far as the plane that crashed into the Pentagon – Sheen isn’t even certain that happened. Red State notes that Sheen outlined his disbelief that the official story of what happened at the Pentagon matched the physical evidence.

“Show us this incredible maneuvering, just show it to us. Just show us how this particular plane pulled off these maneuvers. 270 degree turn at 500 miles and hour descending 7,000 feet in two and a half minutes, skimming across treetops the last 500 meters.”

Charlie Sheen Joins Conspiracy Chorus on 9/11 Attacks [National Ledger]

    A lot of people support this theory. Looks like the buildings were blown up from the bottom not the top. So the planes may have run into the building but there is a theory that says bombs were also planted underground.

    Why have we not gotten to the bottom of this? Too busy killng Iraqis?

    Makes me mad.

  2. Kir

    If you take the mainstream media version of events as the real and true story without questioning alternatives, you are the nut job. Well done Charlie Sheen for having a mind of his own.

  3. mutterhals

    Also, there has not been, to this day, a criminal investigation done at the ground zero site. A bit odd, dontcha think…

  4. ManT

    People will think of anything they can to blame the government. I don’t care how incompetent you think George Bush is, this is ridiculous. And on that note, how could he pull this all off if he the incompetent moron people these same people claim?

    This is blasphemy to all of those innocent people that died. Why are people so hell bent on defending the terrorists?????? God forbid we acknowledge that those hijackers were evil. Hell no, those guys were scapegoats and it was all George Bush? Use some common sense.

    I am absolutely not saying I believe this, however, controlled explosions are used all of the time to bring the rest of a dangerous, half destroyed building down. Maybe that could explain it! In addition, if you want to start with the conspiracy theories (again, I don’t believe any of them) perhaps the people who hate George bush did it all so they could try to make him look he was the one who planned it all. hmmmmmm. Maybe Martin and Charlie Sheen financed it all. And they are deflecting attention from themselves. And Denise Richsrda found the secret tape recordings of their meetings with arab american actors who pretended to board planes to throw everyone off. Then they replaced them with dummies and hired more actors to place fake cell phone calls from fake planes!

  5. Kelsey

    I am in no way a conspiracy theorist…i believe we landed on the moon and such…however, I’m very skeptical about 9/11. Especially after watching 9/11 Loose Change….very interesting documentary. Some of the arguements are a little strange, but it raises some verrrrrry intriguing questions that I would like to hear the explainations on.

  6. mutterhals

    The Bush administration brought this shit on themselves; if they weren’t so devious and secretive, theories like this would be much harder to believe. I doubt that the US government attacked themselves, however, don’t believe for a minute that you know the whole story of regarding what happened on 9/11…

  7. P

    The fact of the matter is, plenty of people have a gut feeling that there is something just not right with the official version of events. The difference is, Charlie Sheen voiced those suspicions publicly. We should be questioning everything, instead we give our minds away to whatever we’re told to believe. Sheeple sheeple everywhere, baa baa baa

  8. zenmasterfoo

    are you all out of your minds? the buildings did not blow up from the basement/ground up. go watch the footage again you mad crazy nutball people. The superstructure at the top of the buidings near impact simply (and yes I say simply because it’s about cause and effect) melted. the airliners that hit the buidlings dumped and ignited their jet fuel burning it at ridiculously high temperatures.

    The building’s frames and suport structures couldn’t withstand the impact/heat. the collapses took place at the impact areas near the tops of the towers. The weight from said collapses did exactly what a construction demolition would do. pancake the building.

    the pentagon idea is more plausible given the lack of video footage, but still insane.
    Conspiratory theories abound. Big deal. JFK is dead, Elvis is too. There are no such things as aliens coming to free us from our chaotic lives and as far as I can tell magicians just use tricks and distractions to preform.

    so you guys hate the war.president/whatever. understood. You can have your opinions. just don’t sound like Charlie Sheen who’s probably just losing his mind from the Hep C he contracted from any one of the myriad os hookers he associates with. loony loony. not intelligent theories.

    oh yeah.. lst time I checked the ARAB insurgent/terrorists (not iraqi’s mind you) are the ones blowing up iraqi civilians in mosques during prayer session. YOU STUPID FUCKING IDIOTS.

  9. Enough

    Zenmaster: Who is funding your ignorance? George Bush’s mama?

    There is so much secrecy on the administration’s part on what happened that day including their knowledge of the attack before it happened. It is very plausible that bombs were also planted in that building as well. We need to know this and no investigation has uncovered this important info.

    I was in New York on 9/11. Those buildings were part of my life. I care what happened and I am upset Dubya does not have the decency to tell us.

    Asking questions is a way to keep those people’s spirits alive. We are defending the people who died by placing responsiblility on the government to tell us what happened.

    I am mad at the government for not protecting those people from such an attack.

    Only Arab insurgents killing innocent Iraqis? Are you out of your mind? WE ARE KILLING innocent Iraqis!!! For WHAT??? What did they do? Did they blow up the twin towers????

    We are so full of it. Al Qaeda attacks us but let’s attack SADDAM who Al- Qaeda hates by the way.

    And while we are at it, let’s hand our ports over to the United Arab Emirates who are known to harbor terrorists.

    We started this shit. If we had kept our nose out of the Israel-Palestine conflict, this would of never happened. But no! Let’s fund Israel with unlimited weapons to kill the Palestinians. The terrorists have made it clear that is a MAJOR reason for their dislike of us – our stance on Israel-Palestine.

    We incited this crap and now innocent people are paying the price.

    I want Bush to send his two Bratty daughters to Iraq NOW!! Let them go and see what it is like. PIG MURDERER! BRAT !

    Yeah, I know there is no draft but darn it what do poor kids have besides the military?????? I want Barb and jenna on the frontlines NOW!!!!!

    DUBYA IS A PIG. We need to know what happened on 9/11 and those people who died and their loved ones deserve at least that.

    Why is it the people asking the questions are seen as the culprit?

  10. Jai

    I work in construction and my co workers and I all watched it together and initially thought it was a controlled explosion. It fell into itself. It was definitly not from the top. Then the theory of burning jet fuel eating the core the building out works but there isn’t enough to get that far down. It burns itself out as well.
    The pentagon was not hit by a plane, any idiot can figure that out!
    Bush did it to take over the oil and he created this cover to get american support!

  11. NYLEO

    Charlie Sheen, porno star aficiando & connoisseur, recipient of the Heidi Fleiss Customer of the Year Award and “star” of the sophomoric Hot Shots Part Deux is now an expert on terrorism and government conspiracy. This is what your brain looks (sounds)like on Hollywood.

    As a born and bred Manhattanite, I am sickened by this idiot’s bilious spewings and only hope that what happened in my home town NEVER repeats itself again.

    Yes, all of the left wingers just salivate when one of their Hollywood “heroes” gives a big whacking to America, the president and NYC. I deal with this everyday as a closeted republican working in the entertainment industry in Los Angeles. Los Angeles…safest place in the world to live…nothing here of any value but a bunch of insipid dolt faux thespians that actually provide a service for terrorists in weakening our country’s efforts to keep us safe. Good work Charlie! Now, shut up.

  12. zenmasterfoo

    Enough Said: I never said anything about the administration . I don’t care if you have a gripe against them, that’s cool. I don’t particularly agree with everything that comes from any white house administration and I like you, I’m allowed and protected by the constitution to say what I feel without reprisal.

    Why is it every time anyone counters an ignorant rant about anything political and obviously liberally slanted, the opposite view is always “you dummy, george bush is evil, why can’t you see that”? That’s second to the Halliburton response of course.

    You come from NYC, so that makes you better able to see truth. sorry pal, but it’s not just up to you guys to tell us what right and what’s wrong. Again, nothing here is about George Bush.

    Ah, the Ports. Hmm, let’s see…China owns control over several and has for years, so do many other nations. Didn’t know that did you smart ass? Before the Dubai deal, that control was managed by Great Britain. Dubai purchased the British firm among several others, which brought us to the deal that Congress blocked. Know your shit before you mouth off.

    So be mad at at the president for any reason you want. I care not. But remember that terrorists attacked the towers, not US jet fighters. not some errant wing of the government that has a war agenda. that’s ridiculous to say the least. I have nothing against your politics but please stay on point with your argument.

  13. dz

    for those who want to see a legit documentary on 9/11 that explains some of the questions surrounding the buildings collapses, please check out the following video:

  14. C

    Saddam funded terrorisim, plain and simple. Families of 9/11 victims sued Saddam and won – do you think a US court would rule in their favor if they didn’t have a leg to stand on?

    Call me stupid or a Dubya lover or whatever you want, but perhaps I am so blinded by my own patriotism that I refuse to believe that my own president would do such a heinous thing to this country. The jet fuel from the planes leaked out and burned through the floors resulting in the impact you all saw. The twin towers were not archetectural marvels – there were no support beams in the center of the building, only on the perimiters of the building. It is easy to see how the floors impacted on one another as they did on 9/11.

    Bravo to you all for voicing your opinions because it is, after all, the “American Way.” If you all can find something and bring it to the public’s attention then I will change my mind. But until then, I will support my troops and tell them that their presence in Iraq is positive. And I am a wife of someone in the military and I do know people who have died in battle – and yet I still refuse to believe they died for nothing.

    If anything, Saddam did not posess WMD, but he used his money to fund terrorist acts. Check out this website for links to him and terrorisim: http://www.husseinandterror.com/

    Regardless, Saddam threw men and women into meat grinders while they were still alive. He ordered children strangled and beaten to death while forcing their parents to watch. Women were locked in prisons and used as sexual favors for his so-called troops. Why are any of your defending him?

    Let’s not forget that Iraqi insurgents continually cut the throats of American men/women who are over there HELPING THEM. These are people you cannot deal with. These are individuals who DON’T CARE if you are republican or democrat. The only thing they care about is that you are an AMERICAN and there is a bounty on your head.

    So go, Sean Penn, Charlie Sheen, and Michael Moore, to Iraq and hang out with the insurgents and tell them it’s wrong we are over there. I’ll see you on the 10:00 news when they announce your death at the hands of insurgents.

  15. ali

    again, what did saddam have to do with 9/11?

    Yea and there was that court case where a woman sued a furniture company she was in when she tripped over her OWN CHILD and was awarded $14,000. Your point is?

  16. C

    NYLEO said: This is what your brain looks (sounds) like on Hollywood.

    Nice point. These individuals are ACTORS. Since when did being an actor qualify you to speak on anything other than your coke/heroin/meth/prostitute habit? People, like Charlie, who live in glass houses should not throw stones.

    Lets not forget the title of this post is: CHARLIE SHEEN IS A NUT JOB

  17. Kelsey

    First, I believe what Innocent was getting at by saying that you are too busy bombing Iraqies is because you are attacking Iraq.

    BTW…plane fuel is a form of kerosene…it’s not capable of burning hot enough to MELT an ENTIRE AIRPLANE AND BUILDING. (the buildings were constructed of re-enforced steel btw…VERY high melting point) The buildings were built to withstand the impact of a Boeing 757…so why did they BOTH collapse? The 7th building collapsed…how come? Nothing that would have any impact hit it.

    They are the first 3 buildings in history to collapse because of fire. Hmm…I wonder why??

    You can’t fly a plane through 9 walls of re-enforced concrete as it did when it “crashed” into the Pentagon. And if it could, do you not think that the engines or wings would make a mark? There is only a circle going into the building. Odd.

    You have only been able to make cell phone calls from an American Airlines plane since 2004. At the height that the planes were at when most of the calls were being made…you have a .006% chance of getting a call through..let alone talking for more than a few seconds. Remarkable day for reception that was wasn’t it?

    How come there are no big pieces of the planes left? Especially the one in Pennsylvania? Did it melt too? And no bodies? Did they all burn up? Again, another first in history.

    I in NO WAY am trying to diminish what happened in the US on this awful day. It was a horibble tragedy, but the worse tragedy is that there are no plausible explainations for this terrible crime. Why so secretive?

    It’s a sad day when you attempt using the ends to justify the means in the government…it’s too bad that it is the only way they do business anymore

  18. Kelsey

    One other thing about “leaking jet fuel”…that is not plausbile, because remember the HUGE fireball that exploded when the planes hit the buildings? Yeah…see the kerosene was responsible and was all burned up when that happened…so there was no fuel to leak anywhere and start fires…

    Again…there are barely any explainations that do this siuation justice.

    Oh and actors are people too, they can voice their opinions however they want…they just happen to get media coverage so everyone hears it. They have stupid and valid opinions just like every other idiot and genius out there

  19. C

    I agree, US lawsuits can be ridiculous and people are awarded thousands based on the idiocy of others. However, a lawsuit as serious as the one presented was taken seriously.

    And AGAIN (!) I did not ever once say that Saddam and 9/11 were linked. I said Saddam and Terrorisim were linked.

    And AGAIN I ask, why are you defending him? Why is anyone speaking up for someone like him? Why is anyone defending his actions at all? You seem to skirt around that issue while I flat out say that Saddam and 9/11 weren’t linked.

  20. Tilly

    To C and Zenfoomaster,

    Thank you. As someone who was more than half way up in WTC 2 when American parked next door and was dead center in the lobby of WTC 2 when United parked upstairs I get so tired of these loons running around spouting this garbage but am just too tired to even bother.

    It is appreciated that you two have stepped up to the plate.

    Steel melts at around 3000 degrees F. When you see video of the fire in those towers the smoke is black, a sign of a low temperature fire. Under the best of cirumstances, jet fuel burns at roughly 1300 degrees F. The twin towers were the first steel skyscrapers to suposedly fall due to fire.

    In video of the towers, you will see people standing in the windows looking out. If the fire was hot enough to melt steel how in the world would people be able to stand there looking out hoping for help?

    One can get all passionate and call each other names but the scientific facts DO NOT waiver and that leaves a ton of questions about 9/11 that remain unanswered. I initially thought, as most of you, that fire brought these buildings down until I did some research of my own. The thought that our government might in whole or part be responsible is tough to take until you look at history and see it has happened before. Do a little study on Pearl Harbor.

    One extra factoid, the head of security for the twin towers until 9/10/01 was Marvin Bush, the President’s brother.

  24. Tracy

    Well, I must say, everything that comes from ZENMASTER….

    I agree with….Thanks zenmaster

  25. outsidelookingin

    I watched many documentories about the towers after 9/11 and learned that the architects that designed the buildings purposefully built the towers to collapse straight down as they did. This was to avoid more damage and deaths to the buildings and people around them. If they had “fallen over” it would have been a lot worse.

    My question is, why can’t they find Bin Laden? They found Hussein in a hole in the ground, does Bush maybe have too many personal alliances with the Bin Laden family?

    9/11 was horrible for the families that lost their loved ones and us as a country, when actors start playing politicians all they do is is diminish the truth so their faces stay in the spotlight, no matter how ridiculous their conspirasies are. I’m amazed at the gullibilty some of us have. Smarten up so you know the facts before you start believing what these so-called celebrities start shoving down your throat.

  26. Enough

    Zenmaster: yeah, because I am a New Yorker I feel very entitled to my anger. My train stop every day was the E train to the World Trade Center. It is by chance that I did not take the train that week because I had an assigment mid-town.

    I care aobut NYC and your pig president is full of it and yeah this is about the government – IT IS ENTIRELY about their irresponsibility and ignorance.

    What is your point about other nations’ port deals??? What I am saying is Great Britain, our #1 ass kisser and United Emirates protecting our ports are two very different things.

    United Emirates harbors terrorists. Yeah, attack we little people for not having our arguments straight. Yeah, I am just poor and ignorant but you know what? I am the salt of the earth and I am here to say this whole 911 thing is the Bush administration’s fault because of their stance on Israel-Plestine and Bush’ little HOLY war!

    Who said some wing of the gov’t attacked the towers? I said we LITTLE PEOPLE who are not educated as you sir need to know what happened and DUBYA needs to tell us NOW!!!!

    Yeah, I said it Smart Ass. God forbid an American actually speaks their mind and voices their opinion.

  27. mutterhals

    Charlie Sheen didn’t create this theory, he just brought attention to it. Just as you suggest that we “smarten up” I would suggest that you refrain from believing everything that comes out of the white house.

  28. Pomme

    All I know is that 9/11 was the best thing that happened to the George Bush presidency.

    Actors are citizens and equally entitled to voice their opinions.

  29. las

    I don’t like Dubya, but I can smell a desperation tactic from an actor. Occam’s razor, me pals.

    I doubt that Sheen brought this up because of any expertise or knowledge, unless his imagined 9-11 demolition was done by naked women. He’s probably trying to distract people from Denise’s steel-nerved divorce proceedings. In other words, Charlie boy is slipping off the edge, and is trying to make it seem otherwise.

    Being the brainswashed, dubya loving, rebublican that I am I’m going to have to agree with NYLEO, Zenmasterfoo and C on this one. I will however refrain from making any of my own comments.

  33. LM

    las: I think we’re on the same wavelength. Tom Cruise must be delighted that Charlie Sheen is now taking the nutter spotlight. Sure, neither of these guys invented the theories behind their rants, but that doesn’t make them any less loopy. Tilly–sorry about your experience. I used to work across from the WTC for many years and have a number of friends who were in the buildings that day. One was in the plaza between the buildings taking a shortcut from the 4-5-6 to get to world financial plaza when the first plane hit. It was a plane.

  34. Elizabeth

    Will someone ask Charlie Sheen what happened to the commercial airliner that supposedly HIT the Pentagon if no plane hit it? Where are they hiding this plane and its passengers and crew.
    I bet the airline would like to have its plane back and the families would like to see their loved ones.

    Freaking nut job is right. I have seen the stupid video about no plane hitting the Pentagon. It is total BS and can easily be disproved.
    Tell me how the light poles were all sheered off around the Pentagon? I suppose on missle did all fo that? Give me a break.

  35. Korski

    Bush exploited the ignorance of Americans to pursue his own agenda in the Middle East. It is truly sad to see people still blabbering all this nonsense about terrorists and terrorism and wmd’s. Many countries experience devastating terrorist attacks (and actual war on their own territory) and regain their strength and dignity. Americans are so afraid. Haha most Americans think Iran is planning to nuke their country- what ignorance.

    But an ignorant populace is exactly what Bush and the neocons need to stay in power. Taking money away from education and giving it to the manufactured war effort. Its pathetic

    watch “Hijacking Catastrophe” to take a good look at how the fear of Americans has been exploited by Bushie

  36. darrel

    ayone seen the BBC documentary The Power Of Nightmares? the US government created al queada! there is no real terrorist threat, it is all a fear campaign to make ignorant flag waving americans give up their rights and freedoms! think im kidding? look at all the supposed enemies we have faced before, yeah there may be a small threat against us by terrorists in caves in the middle east, but they are not the well organized terror cells that Rumsfeld and the Bush crime family constantly shove in our face as the great threat of the new millenium. open your eyes people! study real american history and policy and you will see the truth, and the truth is we are more in danger from the neo cons than from some group of anti american cave dwellers!

  37. LM

    DZ thank you for the link, but really, there’s nothing explanatory on it. Just stitched together clips of witness descriptions of the collapse (not initial impact) saying the force was like an “explosiion.” That does not mean that the government wired the buildings with explosives. Crissakes: how else would you describe it? A sonic boom sounds like an explosion, a crane collapsing sounds like an explosion, a car accident sounds like an explosion, etc. That does not mean they ARE explosions.

    I think stupid Sheen is watching his father too much in West Wing. What a dumbshit. I guess George also cleverly disguised himself as Osama when he made the videotape praising what the people on the plane did.

  41. ASME

    I am an engineer, and I am POSITIVE there was nothing unusual about the way the buildings went down. If there was, engineers and architects all over the country would be questioning it, not uneducated (and probably coked up) celebrities.

    charlie sheen ought deserves an ovation. here is a man who has stood up to be counted. here is a man who lives in the public spotlight yet knows there are fools out there like the authors of this site who would use the opportunity to trash. thank you charlie sheen. you a voice for someone like who is the real coward. i knew the wtc was controlled i saw saw the actual detonation of each floor. i saw what the firemen heard. the minute i saw a flash on nearly each floor there was no question in my mind. now only if they’d admit it. say if the wtc was designed that way so avoid greater destruction, implode it. but officials dont so there is definitely something fishy.

  44. Bush the Mastermind

    I’m sure Bush was also behind these two things that appeared on CNN.com today too, huh?

    BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) — Four car bombs exploded in Baghdad Thursday, three of them killing 33 people, Iraqi police said, despite a bolstered U.S. and Iraqi force presence in the city.

    “Ninety-five suspected terrorists were found and have been detained and are being questioned,” Lynch said. “We found 24 weapons caches that included 350 mortar rounds, 116 rockets, four surface-to-air missiles, and explosive materials for [bombs], and terrorist training materials.”

    So tell me again that Iraq isn’t full of terrorists?

    So I guess we should ignore evil leaders like Sadaam and the problems in the middle east because those people will never get along? Is that what we should have done while Hitler was killing millions? Makes sense, ignore everyone else because we’re America and we need to “take care of our own.” Guess we oughtta quit sending food and supplies to Africa too then huh? I bet Bush is stealing all their food and causing droughts in Africa right?

    I love that out of one side of the mouth comes insults that Bush is a stupid, uneducated redneck, then out of the other side comes this theory that he is the mastermind behind the largest terrorist attack ever on American soil. Unbelievable.

  45. kitler

    my initial thought on that day we watched the buildings come down was that our government was somehow involved with it. there is plenty of evidence to the contrary that the events of this day did not unfold as were told.

  46. shaney shane

    its obvious that your opinions on the topic are against the conspiracy theory, but its widely researched and noted. have you been under a rock? or are you just related to george bush?

  47. Bottom Line

    #44: Yes, Saddam=bad guy/Terrorist.

    Did he attack the WTC on 9/11 though? What is the correlation?

  48. Namennayo

    I’m sure every person here who agrees with Charlie Sheen is a forensic, aeronautical, architectural, engineering, international intelligence, and explosives expert.

    I’m also sure George W. Bush is so intelligent and the press so stupid that this obvious conspiracy hasn’t gotten the attention it deserves.

    I’m also sure Charlie Sheen is Jesus. Save us, Charlie Sheen, save us. . . show us the truth.

  49. ASME

    Ok people; let me explain this to you. Metal does not have to liquefy to lose its strength! Steel loses about 50% of its strength at 1100°F, which would be in the range of what the jet fuel was burning at. There were reports that pockets of the fire hit 1832°F–a temperature at which steel loses 90% of its strength.

    Any engineer who has performed a basic stress analysis will tell you that when a structure is designed to withstand a certain weight capacity loses the strength that was calculated in its design, it will no longer be able to sustain the stress placed on it, and it will fail (which is just lingo for falling apart, buckling, collapsing, etc.). You also have to consider all the combustible material within the towers (e.g. carpeting, paper, furniture, curtains) that would accelerate the heat transfer and cause the structure to collapse that much faster.

  50. HaHaKid

    I don’t want to comment on Charlie Sheen’s private life, but isn’t our highest elected offical a drunk and a cocaine addict? And please don’t tell me he’s “recovered” because no one actually recovers from those things.
