Hot Air has a video clip from Bullshit! (from Penn and Teller) looking at 9/11 cover-up conspiracy theories and theorists. There are a lot of these wackos around.

A 5GW operation will create conditions and contingencies to avoid detection by hiding among the crazies. I can see where parts of an operation might purposely be exposed and then linked with false information and crazy theories to discourage real investigation. All of this is aimed at the observation part of the OODA loop of the opponent.

Update 8/3/2009: CGW has a related/linked post.
