Trump didn’t blame Bush for 9/11/2001 … but he would have been right if he did
I can’t help but laugh at how ridiculous some “conservatives” sound, blowing a gasket when Donald Trump pointed out that G.W. Bush happened to be president when the United States was attacked on 9/11/2001. I say ‘ridiculous’ because they begin to sound exactly like liberals. Name calling, basing their drivel on emotions, hysteria, and saying that Trump and others claim that G.W. was “fully responsible” which isn’t even remotely true. Just like liberals, you can tell they are desperate to make their point by the hysteria and vigor they illustrate in Bush’s defense.
An ass-clown writer over at Red State rose to the occasion to defend Bush …
If we sat around, adding up all of the stupid things Donald Trump has said, we’d be here for hours and hours going over it and that would just be over what he said the previous month. Not content with his usual bombast, Trump decided to go full stupid and attack George W. Bush over 9/11, essentially assigning him blame merely because he was in office at the time of the attacks.
And to back up my opening paragraph …
No sooner had he said it and started to be criticized for it, did his yapping minions come out and start to defend him. “Well, he’s factually correct. Bush was in office during the 9/11 attacks!” Naturally, Trump also had left wing Democrats defending him. These are the same people who say Bush was fully to blame for 9/11 after being in office for about seven months …
And then this …
Trutherism is the nutball theory the 9/11 attacks were actually carried out by the US government and President Bush was part of the conspiracy to carry them out and part of the cover up. Trump’s “soft” version says President Bush was well aware of the danger, did not connect the dots and therefore, “allowed” the attacks to take place.

And then you have fools (Jammie Wearing Fools) spouting the same kind of crap against Trump. Referring to Trump as a ‘moron’ and … “So anything that happens while you’re president is your responsibility. Got it.”
Now, the stuff Trump said about Bush didn’t suggest that “anything that happens while you’re president is your responsibility,” but when one is illustrating that he’s a pile of ass (Jammie) you have to exaggerate a little because you’re trying to make a point, even when the point isn’t there.
Okay, enough of dumb-ass phony “conservatives” … yeah, the ones who will fight vigorously to put another RINO in the White House or would rather see Hillary as president. Those “conservatives” make me sick.
Should we investigate or just accept the government’s version of 9/11/2001? I mean as conservatives we’re generally skeptical of what those in the government tell us … why is it different with the attack on America on 9/11/2001?
Jeb Bush with full blown indignation said, “My brother kept us safe!” Well Jeb, there’s around 3,000 folks who might not feel the same as you, but they’re not available for comment.
Sooo … was Bush aware of the danger that Osama Bin Laden pose to America?
Yes, Bush was well aware despite his claim: “Had I known that the enemy was going to use airplanes to strike America, to attack us, I would have used every resource, every asset, every power of the government, to protect the American people.” But alas! G.W. Bush lied (just a little one) …
On August 6, 2001, the President (Bush) personally “received a one and a half page briefing advising him that Osama Bin Laden was capable of a major strike against the U.S. and that the plot could include the hijacking of an American airplane.” In July 2001, the administration was also told that terrorists had explored using airplanes as missiles. (NBC, 9/10/02; LA Times, 9/27/01
You know something folks? Bush claiming he would have done something if he only knew, rings as hollow as Obama telling us that ISIS isn’t Islam.
Without getting into too much more, because it makes me sick to my soul how anyone could believe the official version of what happened.
From a post here at Cry and Howl …
“Nobody in our government, at least, and I don’t think the prior government, could envision flying airplanes into buildings on such a massive scale.” G.W. Bush
Well, Mr. Bush, using a keen ear, I detect a discrepancy in that statement. You’re telling us that in the Bush government and the eight years of the Clinton government no one envisioned flying airplanes into buildings. That doesn’t jive with this:
On the very morning of 9/11/01, five war games and terror drills were being conducted by several U.S. defense agencies, including one “live fly” exercise using REAL planes. Then-Acting Head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Air Force General Richard B. Myers, admitted to 4 of the war games in congressional testimony — see transcript here or video here (6 minutes and 12 seconds into the video).
Norad had run drills for several years of planes being used as weapons against the World Trade Center and other U.S. high-profile buildings, and “numerous types of civilian and military aircraft were used as mock hijacked aircraft”. In other words, drills using REAL AIRCRAFT simulating terrorist attacks crashing jets into buildings, including the twin towers, were run. See also official military website showing 2000 military drill, using miniatures, involving a plane crashing into the Pentagon.
Indeed, a former Los Angeles police department investigator, whose newsletter is read by 45 members of congress, both the house and senate intelligence committees, and professors at more than 40 universities around the world, claims that he obtained an on-the-record confirmation from NORAD that ON 9/11, NORAD and the Joint Chiefs of Staff were conducting a joint, live-fly, hijack exercise which involved government-operated aircraft POSING AS HIJACKED AIRLINERS.
And I find the following rather suspect:
Interestingly, Vice President Cheney was apparently in charge of ALL of the war games and coordinated the government’s “response” to the attacks. See this Department of State announcement; this CNN article; and this previously-cited essay.
And while the government has consistently stated that it did not know where the aircraft were before they struck, this short video clip of the Secretary of Transportation’s testimony before the 9/11 Commission shows that Cheney monitored flight 77 for many miles as it approached the Pentagon. How could one of the most heavily-defended buildings in the world have been successfully attacked, when the Vice President of the United States, in charge of counter-terrorism on 9/11, watched it approach from many miles away?
For the attacks on 9/11/2001 to be successful there needed to be simulated attacks to create enough confusion as to what was real and what wasn’t. HERE is some interesting stuff.
