A frequent contributor to Andrew Breitbart's websites said he believes that the September 11 attacks and the Oklahoma City bombing were inside jobs, and suggested he'll feel "comfort" when President Obama is killed.
Appearing on the radio program Deadline Live in February 2007, Michael Moriarty, who played assistant district attorney Ben Stone on Law and Order, was asked by host Jack Blood if he believes "that 9-11 had fingerprints of [an] inside job." Moriarty responded with his "theory" that before 9-11, President "Bush talked to the Bin Laden family in Riyadh" and said he needed "probable cause" to invade Iraq; the "Bin Ladens," in turn, told Bush that "we'll give you probable cause." When asked if he had any doubt that the Oklahoma City bombing was an "inside job," Moriarty replied: "None! There were two seismic reports of explosions, there were no federal -- there were no children of federal employees in the building at the time in the daycare center, and the ATF were nowhere to be found."
Moriarty's 9-11 and Oklahoma City views aren't the Breitbart contributor's only controversial remarks. On Deadline Live, Moriarty said he believes as "fact" that Presidents Clinton and George H.W. Bush were running illegal guns and drugs, and laundering money out of Arkansas. Moriarty has also castigated Islam as "evil" and a "Gestapo."
Writing for Breitbart, Moriarty likened Obama to "Robespierre" and added, "The only comfort is that Robespierre eventually had to face his own favorite solution: the guillotine." Discussing politicians and abortion, Moriarty wrote that Roe v. Wade "is worldwide suicide. Legalizing murder ultimately means legalizing your own assassination." Moriarty has also written that a "Spirit of Evil" "owns" Obama -- who "dwarfs the endless lies of Hitler, Stalin and Mao" -- and that "Red Islam" has "invaded" the country through the president.
Despite housing Moriarty as a contributor, Breitbart and his websites have castigated 9-11 Truthers and those who associate with them. Media Matters has documented Breitbart's apparently non-existent vetting of its contributors.
