Mike Pence blames Iran for 9/11 attacks -- but the official commission found the opposite Published

Published 1 min ago on January 3, 2020

By Sarah K. Burris

Mike Pence incorrectly claimed that Iran helped the 9/11 hijackers that attacked the World Trade Towers in 2001. In fact, Pence’s claim is not only wrong, it was actually investigated by while Pence was in Congress.

The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, also known as the 9/11 Commission began in 2002, “to prepare a full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11 attacks.”

As Washington Post senior political reporter Aaron Blake pointed out, page 241 of the 9/11 report which said the opposite.

“KSM and Binalshibh have confirmed that several of the 9/11 hijackers (at least eight, according to Binalshibh) transited Iran on their way to or from Afghanistan, taking advantage of the Iranian practice of not stamping Saudi passports. They deny any other reason for the hijackers’ travel to Iran. They also deny any relationship between the hijackers and Hezbollah,” the report said.

1. ...and so it begins ...again.

In the 2002 run-up to the Iraq War, proponents blamed Saddam not only for 9/11, but also for everything from the Oklahoma City Bombing to the West Nile virus.

The bullshit spreader is only revving up.

4. Holy cow, and his press sec backs him up a few hours later

For those asking: 12 of the 19 transited through
Afghanistan. 10 of those 12 were assisted by Soleimani.





Some replies:

....This is pretty much the definition of propaganda.

....This is a flat out lie. Period.

....Source?

....Look, I honestly have no idea why you're making this up.

....9/11 report says the opposite. Where did you pull this from?

....And they were all Saudis, whom your boss and his boss are now giving long blowjobs to in exchange for money.

....Would you step up to a microphone and say that out loud where the press could ask follow up questions like you are supposed to do for a living?

5. Stephen Miller's fiancee backed Pence up? Imagine that.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.businessinsider.com/katie-waldman-mike-pence-new-press-secretary-stephen-miller-2019-9

"Vice President Mike Pence announced in September that his press secretary would be Katie Waldman, a vocal supporter of President Donald Trump who previously had stints with Republican lawmakers and the Department of Homeland Security.

The news of the hire made even more headlines after Washington Post reporter Nick Miroff tweeted alongside the news that 27-year-old Waldman is dating controversial White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller, who would become Waldman's fianceé around six weeks later."....(more)
