I am extremely skeptical of any conspiracy literature that involves video doctoring, green screens, etc. because we've all seen those kinds of things from people who think the planes on 9/11 were faked and that kind of stuff. How could a layman possibly verify what can and cannot be considered a legitimate sign of photo-manipulation or the use of green screens?

Saying without reading evidences "This is a crackpot theory" could be an awkward insult to the victims.
It's an insult to the victims to post crackpot theories about their deaths at the hands of muslim extremists. Now who would do something as crass and depraved as that?

I'm trying to get a handle on the conspiracy theory being proposed here and so far all I'm getting (without reading past the first page of the thread) is that the original poster thinks that the Paris shootings were not perpetuated by Muslims and that aliens (the extraterrestrial variety, not foreigners from another country variety) were involved.

The CTers always blame the secret government aka The Illuminati for these kind of "activities".

Oh, and do not forget that they aren't Muslim Extremists, but Commando's that were "trained" inside some secret FEMA Training camp.

If I followed at all what the OP was....saying, he threw ETs into the mix so the Powers That Be would assume he was crazy and wouldn't hunt him down for figuring out their grand scheme. Makes total sense...right?
