Actor Alec Baldwin, considering a run for mayor of New York City, recently caused a stir by tweeting a number of questions about 9/11, including “Do you think Bin Laden was behind 9/11″? New York Magazine reported that Baldwin said his tweets were “absolutely not casting doubt on the issue of Osama Bin Laden’s role in 9/11.” He also took to Twitter to talk about last night’s vague messages: “As the 10th anniversary of the attacks approaches, I am keenly interested in what public opinion is re the aftermath of 9/11.”
Baldwin also tweeted “What is Amalgam Virgo?”
