Charlie Sheen is having second thoughts about being involved in the 9/11 conspiracy documentary "Loose Change," which argues that the World Trade Center attack in 2001 was an inside job by the feds. Though Sheen initially told "Extra" that the film was "a story about the truth, and the truth needs to be exposed." Oops, now he says he's "having second thoughts" about the nutjob film.
The "Two and a Half Men" star had also told Extra: "It's not just me, not just the Hollywood community [that] is standing up saying what you have given us doesn't make sense. We just want better answers."
Apparently he got the better answers he sought. Perhaps he's read the reports by structural engineers that say the towers did indeed collapse from damaged from the aircraft and the subsequent fires that weakened the building's steel skeletal frame.
But then, Charlie didn't see the airplanes the rest of us saw hit the buildings, which is why he said a few years ago:
"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'?"
The "Loose Change" film pushes the widely debunked "controlled demolition" theory, which claims the Twin Towers and a third building, 7 World Trade Center, were packed with tons of explosives and then blown up from within. It alleges the long-burning, jet-fuel fires inside the towers weren't hot enough to weaken steel.
Those claims were soundly refuted by Popular Mechanics magazine, which put together a team of 9 researchers and 70 professional aviation and engineering experts to debunk every single one.
