Loose Change Vs. Popular Mechanics debate

The "9/11 was a conspiracy" folks have been getting a lot of attention lately. A lot of it can be attributed to conservatives desperate to make liberals look unhinged. When they attack the conspiracy nuts, conservatives imply that they're debunking a view held by most liberals, instead of a minority view held by a few fringe elements.

What can I say? Conservatives do a great job of picking their enemies.

Of course most liberals (myself included) find the conspiracy claims simply ludicrous. One of the best sources for debunking the conspiracy theory has been Popular Mechanics. This televised debate between the Loose Change filmmakers and the Popular Mechanics editors (Google Video, 42 minutes) really makes it clear to me who's got evidence and who's grasping at straws.
