Producer Of 9/11 Conspiracy Film 'Loose Change' Accused In Heroin Sale

From Oneonta, N.Y., the local Daily Starwrites that:

" Loose Change filmmaker Korey H. Rowe, 27, of Oneonta, was one of two people arrested in Oneonta on Thursday and charged with sale of heroin, Oneonta police said."

As the newspaper adds, Loose Change is a film that has gained notoriety because it questions "the official explanation of the events on 9/11." It suggests, for example, that the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center were brought down by explosives and that the Pentagon was not struck by a passenger jet — even though hundreds of people saw the plane hit the building. Loose Changehas been viewed millions of times on the Web.

Rowe is out on bond. He's an Army veteran and his biography at the Loose Changewebsite says he served in Afghanistan and Iraq before getting involved with the film.
