I want to note a couple things I think are striking about Jim Fetzer:
1) He totally has moved towards the 9/11 scenario I have held for quite a while-- and blogged upon here (quite uniquely I might add) for some years-- the hijackings were a hoax, no planes hit the WTC and Pentagon and crashed in Shanksville, and the WTC towers were nuked.
2) Like me, he is politically liberal and even supported Obama's re-election (though saying he preferred Ron Paul). Note, Ron Paul is NOT a liberal and has some pretty obnoxious views of the same sort that cost the GOP the last election-- but at least Paul is against the American empire and the National Security State, which are hugely important issues. If the election was between Ron Paul and Obama, that would have been awesome, but obviously that was not the choice we had.
Overall, he's kind of a blowhard, but in an endearing way, I think. He is generally logical and he is very articulate. His major downside is how he is overly gullible and/or non-challenging to his interviewees. Oddly, he never seems to consider the idea of paid or intel 9/11/conspiracy shills. Further, he never seems to synthesize a deeper overall conspiracy. Mostly he seems to blame conspiracies on Israel/Zionism and bankers. He hasn't synthesized anything about UFO/alien issues, and in this regard, may be a bit of a gatekeeper.
Still, I have to find points 1 and 2 gratifying, to a certain degree.
