Has a former FL Senator gone truther?
April 22, 2015
About a week and a half ago, Fox News’ resident Southern Progressive neocon warhawk, the Wink Martindale of journalism Shepard Smith reported on how former Florida Senator Bob Graham (D) wants the 28 pages from the 9/11 commission report to be declassified, showing how the SAUDI ROYAL FAMILY AND GOVERNMENT financed the attack and how there is a connection to Graham’s home state. Fortunately to add a little decorum to the proceedings is Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano.
A little background from a Facebook page about distrust in the corporate media…
According to a New York Post investigation, on September 13, 2001, the FBI evacuated dozens of Saudi officials as well as Osama bin Laden family members from the United States. Bush and Bandar, the two old family friends, shared cigars on the Truman Balcony of the White House while discussing the attacks just two days after 9/11.
From a CIA transcript dated September 24, 2001, Osama bin Laden is quoted as saying: “The United States should try to trace the perpetrators of these attacks within itself; the people who are a part of the US system, but are dissenting against it. Or those who are working for some other system; persons who want to make the present century as a century of conflict between Islam and Christianity so that their own civilization, nation, country, or ideology could survive”.
In May 2003, a frustrated Bob Graham, Chair of the Joint Committee on 9/11, had warned National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, “State-sponsored terrorism substantially increases the likelihood of successful and more lethal attacks within the United States”. He advocated the 28 missing pages be classified as soon as possible to accomplish important objectives, like providing Americans a better understanding of the Intelligence Community’s role prior to 9/11, informing them what was known about Al-Qaeda and threats of domestic terrorism prior to 9/11, and allowing all Americans to hold accountable the agencies and individuals for their actions or lack of actions prior to 9/11.
In 2002 President George W Bush censored 28 pages of the 800-page report “Joint Inquiry Into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001”. In a video released in July 2014 by Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY), he called for the truth of 9/11 to be told to America. He had personally reviewed the 28 redacted pages. It is clear that President Bush was aware that neither Afghanistan nor Iraq were involved in 9/11 and that military action against these two was done to cover involvement (that included support from foreign intelligence agencies) of his administration in 9/11.
And by the way, RT’s Abby Martin, when she was there, spoke to Graham about this in 2013.
