Minnesota Bridge Collapse Explained — Sort Of

So now, according to Swiftboat mastermind and conspiracy-monger par excellence Jerome Corsi (right), last week’s deadly Minneapolis bridge collapse is not the result of years of subpar maintenance or a design flaw on a bridge declared “structurally deficient” in 1990. Absolutely not. A far more sinister cause lies behind the collapse.

Corsi argues on the right-wing WorldNetDaily website that the bridge collapsed because it was being used as part of a North American “SuperCorridor.” The so-called SuperCorridor is just one part of a nefarious, secretive plan by global elites to merge the U.S., Canada and Mexico into a “North American Union” (NAU). Corsi also has written that the NAU may be part of an “executive branch coup d’etat.”

It makes you wonder what else Corsi can blame on the fictitious North American Union. The collapse of the subprime mortgage industry? High oil prices? Global warming?
