Charlie Sheen Slams Critics

Actor Charlie Sheen has hit out at critics who slammed him for expressing his controversial opinions on the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

The Scary Movie star appeared on a radio talk show last month, saying he had trouble believing the "official" 9/11 story from President George W. Bush's administration and the 9/11 commission.

He explains, "I just had a lot of questions. The forum I chose to voice those questions in was the Alex Jones radio show, just because he's a guy I had been a fan of and followed for a lot of years.

"I got attacked. The reaction was pretty severe--'He's not qualified.' 'Who the hell is he to have an opinion about something so horrible?'

"It was sad because they didn't really take a look at any of the stuff I was asking them to look at, any of the evidence, or any of the stuff that generated those questions.

"They said, 'Oh, he's another tin-foil-hat-wearing Hollywood clown.'

"I felt the only real validation I needed was just being a tax-paying American who loves my country.

"I've done a lot of research--it's not just me, it's the people that have come before me, the experts, the engineers, the physicists and scientists and the scholars that raised a lot of these things.

"I took a look of their research and said, 'Yeah, a lot of it doesn't add up,' hence these questions.

"Don't listen to me, do your own research, but I think, 'What happened to a time in this country when we had a constitutional and a God-given right to be curious about things that didn't make sense?'"
