Don't you love how cons gleefully use the Benghazi issue, but most liberals never used 9/11? as a way?
9/11: 3,000 civilians killed, largest attack on American soil in our history, all under Bush's watch. Vast majority of liberals stood firm with Republicans despite differences and he was not, in general, attacked for this. Were there 'truthers'? Sure, but no one took them seriously, and they weren't all over the news. Before you said he had no prior warning, he did. A briefing warned Bush of 9/11 on August 6th, 2001. Look it up.
Benghazi: 5 Americans killed, and according to cons this is an enormous failure on President Obama's watch, a nation disaster unlike any before and is reflective of his "weak and apologetic stance?" Fox News has been latching on to this issue for weeks gleefully.
Just goes to show how pathetic and hypocritical Republicans are.
Same thing with the Beirut 1983 bombing in Lebanon, where were all the uneducated Tea Partiers when over 200 brave servicemen were killed by terrorists under Reagan's watch? He took no serious action other than a few shellings which killed almost none of the culprits and backers of the attacks.

Yes, Bush actually did know and that's not all. Please watch this first video linked here. It’s only one minute. You’re going to be impressed. This is a local news video of a witness named Kenny Johannemann testifying to explosions that happened in the basement of one of the WTC towers. While he is testifying you still see both of the twin towers burning behind him in the background. This was live footage and it's only ONE minute long. Go ahead and watch this here:
Those explosions were from charges that were set up to weaken the structure preparatory to pulling the tower. You didn’t see this on TV. Does that prick your interest?
Now look at this. Barry Jennings was another witness that got stuck in Building Seven during 9/11. Building Seven fell later that same day but was NEVER hit by a jet. Watch his account here:
Again, the explosions he talked about were from charges that were set up to weaken the structure preparatory to pulling down this building. Again, you didn't see Barry’s testimony on TV.
Here’s some different evidence. Steve Jones, a nuclear physicist, obtained WTC dust samples from the collapsed WTC towers and analyzed it. He reported his detailed findings here in Boston:
Those “red chips” he talked about weren’t the smoking gun they were THE GUN. See the article here:
Click here for his actual peer-reviewed paper::
Now get a load of this:
The BBC reported the collapse of the Solomon Building (Building Seven) 20 minutes BEFORE it actually collapsed. Watch that here:
How did the BBC know in advance that Building Seven would collapse? The fact that it was announced in advance is strong support that the flow of information on this tragedy was being controlled.
Were the people at the BBC the only people privy to this information? Probably not. Larry Silverstein was the leaseholder of Building Seven. In a 2002 PBS documentary he talked about how he discussed the Building Seven situation with the fire department and how the decision was made by that department to "pull" it. Well, there is one problem with his testimony that you may want to consider. It takes about a week to rig a building with explosives before you pull it. So are buildings constructed with built-in explosives just in case they need to be blown up in a hurry? Building Seven went down that same day. Whoops! Watch Larry's testimony from the PBS documentary here in this short clip:
Incidentally, luckily for Larry, he insured his property in the nick of time just six months before September 11th! It was a sweet deal. So who orchestrated this terrorist event anyway? They had to get past the FBI and CIA and prepare at least three buildings for demolition as well as direct the activities of men with box cutters (if they even existed). It’s clear from the evidence presented here so far that at least some of the media was in on this. What else could explain the BBC blunder? They had to control the information to those of us who might not like the idea that a few thousand people had to be killed in order to fulfill some kind of agenda. What’s in it for these people that were “in the know?”
Aaron Russo was a famous movie producer who became best friends with one of the Rockefeller family members (Remember “The Rose” and "Trading Places" starring Eddie Murphy?). This is the same Rockefeller family that is a large shareholder of the Federal Reserve Bank -- a private company that loans money to our government and contributes to our huge national debt. You see the name “Federal Reserve” at the top the dollar bill. Yes, we're talking about THAT Bank! Anyway, the upshot of this friendship was that in the year 2000 (11 months before 9/11) Aaron Russo learned from his Rockefeller buddy that there was going to be an "event". He was told that out of this event the U.S. would go into Afghanistan and look for Bin Laden in Caves and then the U.S. would go into Iraq. His fascinating testimony about this "event" starts at 26:45 here in this interview:

Now start here at 26:05 :

THE MEDIA IS IGNORING THE FACTS< HERE IS WHY
the entertainment industry leans Democratic in its political giving. In 2008, Democrats received 78 percent of the industry’s contributions. This continues the trend of the entertainment industry contributing more to Democrats during the past two decades with 70 percent of donations going to Democrats compared to 29 percent for Republicans.
Of the $48.7 million in total campaign contributions given by this industry during the 2008 election cycle, individuals associated with the industry contributed more than 80 percent, with political action committees accounting for most of the rest. Through their PACs, Comcast Corp. and Time Warner spent about $2.9 million and $2.7 million respectively during the 2008 election cycle.
The television, movie and music industry has steadily increased its federal lobbying efforts in recent years, spending more than $107 million in 2009 to influence federal lawmakers and policies. In 2003, only six years earlier, the entertainment industry spent just $45.3 million on federal lobbying efforts -- a fraction of its current output. The National Cable and Telecommunications Association ($15.98 million), Comcast ($12.59 million) and National Association of Broadcasters ($11 million) led the way in 2009.

You have to be out of touch with reality. Not an unusual condition for progressives. The progressives have been chanting for the last.11 plus years about how Chaney and Bush blow up the World Trade Center and faked the airplanes crashing info them. There has been hundreds of YouTube spectaculars proving that no airplane crashed into the Pentagon and how impossible ti is for an airplane to cause those buildings to collapse.

So, Bush knew that on 9/11/01, he knew the specific planes that would be hijacked and flown into the Pentagon and twin towers?
Then he's an idiot for not stopping it.
Benghazi is a major failure, Stevens is the first US ambassador to be killed overseas in over 30 years.
And who was president when the WTC was hit the first time? When the Cole was hit? When our embassies in Africa were hit?
@TerryT: go ahead and throw some FACTS at me, why not start with the last U.S. ambassador to be killed? Here, got it for you.

WHAT COULD HAVE BUSH DONE TO PREVENT 9/11 from happening?
Could have he kicked all foreigners out of the country? LIBS WOULD LOVE THAT!!!
Could have he used the government gun to search and pat down all people before they travel? LIBS WOULD ABSOLUTELY LOVE THAT!
There is a huge difference here. ONE is that Obama and everyone in the innerparty KNEW the attack was coming and were WARNED that they need to either abandon or get more security. They were ignored. And then after the event, OBAMA tried BLAMING it on a crappy youtube video that no one even watched.Source(s): Insanity has a liberal bias!

Not all of us are that bad.
Just the ones that are bad, are really really bad.
And, unfortunately, most of them are given jobs on Fox News.
On behalf of the idiots, we're sorry.
- Anonymous8 years ago
Small difference. Bush didn't attempt to cover it up and lie to us about it.
Also, none of these other Presidents sat there and watched it happen for 7 hours and did nothing.

You must have a memory problem. Bush was hammered over 9/11...and CONTINUES to be hammered by libs like you who are out for blood, but treat Obama with kid gloves.
