I think that the real factor at play here is time:
The Jones operation was started with 9/11 in mind. As soon as the shock of 9/11 wore out a bit, and people were left with questions, Jones was there to capture their attention, for a number of years and until the changes brought forward in foreign and domestic policies were not advanced enough.
While the paradigm shifted, Jones was there with the megaphone yelling "9/11 is an inside job" and people thought that this is all that there was to do.
I believe that, in this sense, Alex Jones and the truthers were a success. They did manage to hijack all the dissent and the uncomfortable questions, herding them in a controlled pen, and in the process they bought the system enough time to slip by a series of irrational, extreme, incoherent and brutal transformations to its global strategy of control.
Of course today it is possible to say, and I agree with you, that Jones is doing more harm than good to his own cause, because all the arguments are consumed and the lies show. He is on borrowed time. Any achievement he accomplishes now is extra, it's like a machine that has to stop naturally.
But 10 years have passed in the meantime.
