Wolfgang Halbig, in case you’re not familiar with the name, is a formerly respected civil servant who has gone Full Code Red Nutjob since Sandy Hook. His May 2014 appearance before the Newtown School Board was a legendary clusterfuck, featuring Halbig himself, career lunatic James Fetzer, a fat guy from Infowars, and other assorted weirdos. So it’s with some regret that I will not be able to attend his upcoming FOIA hearing in Hartford.
There’s no mystery what he will ask for; it will be the usual “stop hiding whatever you’re hiding because you must be hiding something. Also sixteen questions” speech that he’s made thousands of dollars pushing. There’s no mystery about the outcome either. Whatever winds up getting released (if anything) will be heralded as The Breakthrough, scrutinized, and then forgotten after it fails to change what we know about Sandy Hook. The Truthers will go back to terrorizing families and staring at photos. They simply cannot learn.
