    I don’t think Annie Machon has anything useful to say about any of these issues. It doesn’t mention it in that article or in her Guardian profile but she has spent the last few years one of the key figures in the 9/11 truth movement, polluting the discourse on the intelligence and security services with conspiracy theory rubbish.
