Trump’s Spokeswoman Asks If 9/11 Was An “Inside Job” – Before the Campaign
WTF NEWS – The internet is mad at Donald Trump’s spokeswoman, Katrina Pierson, for suggesting that the September 11 attacks were an “inside job” committed by people within the United States government.
Pierson tweeted on Sept. 13, 2012: “9/11…An inside job?”, before Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. Pierson serves as national spokeswoman for Donald Trump’s campaign, however she was not affiliated with Trump at the time.
9/11 … An inside job?

The tweet has received new attention as of Monday morning through re-tweets because of the debate over Trump blaming then President George W. Bush for the 2001 terrorist attacks.
The general response of the internet?

Trump revived the 9/11 issue in October 2015 saying “say what you want, the World Trade Center came down during his time”, referring to George Bush during an interview with Bloomberg’s Stephanie Ruhle.
Trump has since continued attacking former Florida Governor Jeb Bush on the issue during Republican debates. “How did he keep us safe when the World Trade Center went down?” Trump said Saturday in South Carolina as the audience booed. “I lost hundreds of friends, the World Trade Center went down during the reign of George Bush. He kept us safe? That is not safe.”, talking over the boos.
Trump is not alone in questioning the government’s explanation. In 2013, Congressmen Walter Jones (R-NC) and Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.) began learning about a redacted 28 page section of the official 9/11 Commission report marked classified. Jones and Lynch co-sponsored a bill to declassify the information in December 2013, but it has been kept off the national agenda by Congressional insiders.
NEW YORK POST
After the 9/11 attacks, the public was told al Qaeda acted alone, with no state sponsors.
But the White House never let it see an entire section of Congress’ investigative report on 9/11 dealing with “specific sources of foreign support” for the 19 hijackers, 15 of whom were Saudi nationals.
It was kept secret and remains so today.
President Bush inexplicably censored 28 full pages of the 800-page report. Text isn’t just blacked-out here and there in this critical-yet-missing middle section. The pages are completely blank, except for dotted lines where an estimated 7,200 words once stood (this story by comparison is about 1,000 words).
A pair of lawmakers who recently read the redacted portion say they are “absolutely shocked” at the level of foreign state involvement in the attacks.
The Bush administration claimed multiple times that it could not imagine the type of attacks that took place September 2001 yet it was proven that the White House ignored multiple memos describing the potential attacks as late as August 2001. Bush also ignored deep intel by a project called Able Danger and it is known that multiple agencies have run terror drills with the scenario of hijacked planes hitting buildings, specifically North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD). The cover of a 1997 terror drill involving the Department of Justice featured New York’s World Trade Center in crosshairs.
Six months before 9/11, the basic explanation of September 11 attacks was the subject of a terrorist plot orchestrated by members of the American government in a March 2001 episode of the Lone Gunman, a spinoff of FOX’s hit series The X-Files.
The 1996 movie Long Kiss Goodnight starring Samuel L. Jackson featured a scene with terrorists embedded in the US government describing attacks killing 4,000 people to be blamed “on Muslims” to influence Congress in the form of billions of dollars for government agencies. The scene claimed described the CIA had prior knowledge of the 1993 World Trade Center attacks.
