Donald Trump Just Questioned the Government’s Official Narrative on 9/11

(ANTIMEDIA) Donald Trump is igniting controversy yet again — this time by implying the Saudis could be responsible for the attacks of September 11, 2001.

After Trump stunned the Republican establishment at the debate on Saturday by claiming the Iraq war was “a big, fat mistake,” he elaborated about events that ultimately led the U.S. to invade the country, during a campaign event in Bluffton, South Carolina, Wednesday morning:

“It wasn’t the Iraqis that knocked down the World Trade Center; we went after Iraq, we decimated the country … But it wasn’t the Iraqis. You will find out who really knocked down the World Trade Center, ‘cause they have papers in there that are very secret, you may find it’s the Saudis … but you will find out.”

While it’s public knowledge 15 of the 19 attackers on 9/11 were Saudis, nothing has ever been divulged to directly implicate the government of Saudi Arabia. However, when the 9/11 Commission Report on those events was published, 28 pages had been notoriously left out, under the guise of protecting national security — and have since been the subject of controversy and conspiracy theories.

According to an article by Lawrence Wright published in the New Yorker, specifically focused on those 28 pages:

“‘There’s nothing in it about national security,’ Walter Jones, a Republican congressman from North Carolina who has read the missing pages, contends. ‘It’s about the Bush Administration and its relationship with the Saudis.’Stephen Lynch, a Massachusetts Democrat, told me that the document is ‘stunning in its clarity,’ and that it offers direct evidence of complicity on the part of certain Saudi individuals and entities in Al-Qaeda’s attack on America.‘Those twenty-eight pages tell a story that has been completely removed from the 9/11 Report,’ Lynch maintains. Another congressman who has read the document said that the evidence of Saudi government support for the 9/11 hijacking is ‘very disturbing,’ and that ‘the real question is whether it was sanctioned at the royal-family level or beneath that, and whether these leads were followed through.’

Clearly Trump is re-igniting a smoldering, popular desire for the Obama administration to divulge the hidden information about possible Saudi involvement. Though Trump could easily be criticized, or even derided, for xenophobic and controversial proposals such as walling off the entire United States — on this point, he appears to be on target.

The contentious billionaire reminded the public during Saturday’s debate that Bush administration lies pertaining to Iraq’s nonexistent weapons of mass destruction led us into war. Trump excoriated Jeb Bush by saying his brother didn’t “keep us safe” on the day of the attacks in 2001 — garnering praise from far-left anti-war group, Code Pink.

Now, some of Trump’s harshest critics find themselves in the awkward position of agreeing with him — it is, indeed, far past time the American public and the world are given the truth about 9/11 — through the contents of those 28 pages.

  1. He will be appealing, not repulsive. The Bible refers to the Antichrist as a blasphemous horn (Daniel 7:24-25), as lawless (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4), and a beast (Revelation 13:1-2) hardly an attractive list of descriptions, but we know that people will follow him (Revelation 13:3), so he will present himself as an alluring leader – at first. He will be super, not ordinary; everything about the Antichrist will be extraordinary. He will possess great eloquence, charm, wit, military genius, vision, and intelligence. He will be extremely influential, charismatic, a false champion of peace, and will possess strong leadership abilities. One could even say he’s a rock star.

  3. Really dude, Trump fits so few of those discriptions. "He will possess great eloquence, charm, wit, military genius, vision, and intelligence." Are we talking about Trump? "He will be extremely influential, charismatic, a false champion of peace, and will possess strong leadership abilities." Champion of peace builds a wall to keep people out and influential? Only influential to the TV Nielson Ratings maybe. "One could even say he’s a rock star." Maybe to you and all the other Trumpets but to anyone with a brain?

  5. Trump is absolutely right about the missing 28 pages that implicate the Saudi regime and the Bush/Cheney administration that stood down on 9/11. Like it or not, but Trump is America’s only hope of getting their country back from the big money backed Bush/Clintons.
    All hail President Trump! That would be awesome. Someone who isn’t part of the old boys club where politicians are constantly bought off by the lobbyists.

  7. This is not about the Saudis, it is about the ruthless greedy two faced Rothchilds, bush was their puppet, to invade Iraq for the sake of the Rothchilds. For they are the Antichrist, they are worth $500 trillion and own half the world, they are the masters and the puppets are the president of USA, Nato CIA, they own the lot.

  8. Anything that leads to Saudi Arabia leads to the Bushes, recall Prince "Bandar Bush" head of Saudi Intelligence. And anything that
    leads to the Bushes and Bandar leads back to Israeli Mossad. Of special interest is the failure of the nation's air defenses on 9/11, and the reliance of these defenses on the company formerly known as Ptech, which was founded with funding partly from Saudi financiers with ties to designated terrorist organizations. Ptech employed a mix of foreign nationals and Americans with ties to Israeli software companies with possible links to Israeli Mossad. See:

    "Bush family ties to terror suspects re-opened by 9/11 '28 pages'".

    Trump is pulling on big threads for sure, but even he does not know nor can he control where they are going to go. The towers were brought down in a demolition, the Saudis provided the patsy hijackers, and Cheney and the Zionist Neocons compromised the air defenses and made sure the planes didn't get shot down.
