Seattle P-I prints editorial by conspiracy kook?

LGF flags something like this at Daily Kos. Is this the new face of the left?
The [9/11] commission's conclusions and recommendations should be totally rejected. Its story is full of lies, distortions and omissions of fact. Following are two of the more than 40 reasons why the official story about what happened on 9/11 is untrue.

First, who were the hijackers? We do not know. None of those named appear on any of the passenger lists released by the airlines. Most important, six of the men named by the government are still alive and have never even been to the United States . . . .

Second, in the months after 9/11 all of the surviving New York City Fire Department personnel who were on the scene were interviewed. Those oral histories were recorded and withheld from the public until Aug. 15, 2005 . . . .

It turns out those oral histories reveal details about what was happening in the World Trade Center buildings that are completely inconsistent with the tale told by the commission. Dozens of firefighters and medics reported hearing, seeing and feeling explosives going off in the buildings that collapsed . . . . More disturbing, why was the pattern of those explosives identical in some important ways with the pattern used in a planned implosion (or controlled demolition of a building)? . . .

What is the commission covering up? Was 9/11, in fact, an inside job?
The editorial appears in "Most E-mailed" and "Most Printed" lists at SeattlePI.com. Update: The comment thread has an interesting mix of the sensible and the nutty.
