Pat Buchanan promotes 9/11 Truth column

Blog ››› ››› JAMISON FOSER

Pat Buchanan's web site currently features a column by Paul Craig Roberts of the "white nationalist" VDARE, in which Roberts promotes the 9/11 Truth movement:

The staying power of the Big Lie is the barrier through which the 9/11 Truth Movement is finding it difficult to break. The assertion that the 9/11 Truth Movement consists of conspiracy theorists and crackpots is obviously untrue.


I have asked on several occasions and have never had an answer, which does not mean that there isn't one, how millions of pieces of unburnt, uncharred paper can be floating over lower Manhattan from the destruction of the WTC towers when the official explanation of the destruction is fires so hot and evenly distributed that they caused the massive steel structures to weaken and fail simultaneously so that the buildings fell in free fall time just as they would if they had been brought down by controlled demolition.

What is the explanation of fires so hot that steel fails but paper does not combust?


Why are the tens of thousands of New Yorkers who are demanding a real investigation dismissed as conspiracy theorists? The 9/11 skeptics know far more about the events of that day than do the uninformed people who call them names. Most of the people I know who are content with the government's official explanation have never examined the evidence. Yet, these no-nothings shout down those who have studied the matter closely.

A few weeks ago, Pat Buchanan was defending Hitler. Again.

Then he attacked Martin Luther King. Again.

Now he's promoting 9/11 Truthers.

Once again: What would Pat Buchanan have to do for MSNBC to fire him?

UPDATE: Here's Buchanan promoting the column on his Twitter feed:

And here's a screenshot of the column on Buchanan's web page:

UPDATE 2: Right below Roberts' column on Buchanan's web site is an entry from Chuck Baldwin, a fellow VDARE contributor who has written "I believe the South was right in the War Between the States."

UPDATE 3: And on September 11, Buchanan's web site featured a column by Justin Raimondo headlined "9/11: Our Truth, and Theirs":

The more distance in time from the actual event, the odder such an assertion seems. Eight years to the day, the official account of 9/11 seems more anemic -and inadequate - than ever. Yet anyone who questions the official story - the narrative of 19 Arab dudes going on what would seem to be a rather quixotic jihad, haphazardly making their way through a strange foreign country on their own, all the while readying themselves for The Day That Changed History - is denounced as a "conspiracy theorist," a crackpot, and worse.


More critical minds, however, will not be deterred, and will certainly home in on the many discrepancies and holes in the official version of events, as well as the central implausibility of the whole affair, which is this: those nineteen hijackers simply could not have pulled it off without outside assistance of some sort, by which I mean to say help from a foreign power acting covertly in this country.


A few weeks after 9/11, I was the first - and, as far as I know, only - writer to draw attention to the fact that, along with the thousand or so Muslims rounded up in the wake of the attacks, as many as 200 Israelis were also taken into custody by then Attorney General John Ashcroft and the feds.


What, I wondered, was the Israeli connection to 9/11?
