PressTV: Bush administration officials didn’t just let 9/11 happen, they made it happen: Scholar

An American philosopher and researcher says the administration of George W. Bush deserves full blame for the September 11, 2001 attacks, which were orchestrated to implement the Project for the New American Century.

James Henry Fetzer, who is also a journalist with Veterans Truth Network and a retired professor in Madison, Wisconsin, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Wednesday, while commenting on the ongoing feud between Republican presidential candidates Donald Trump and Jeb Bush over the 9/11 attacks.
On Friday, Trump blamed George W. Bush for the September 11, 2001 attacks. In response, Jeb said his brother, George W. Bush, is not responsible for the 9/11 attacks.
"Look, my brother responded to a crisis, and he did it as you would hope a president would do. He united the country," he told CNN on Sunday. "He organized our country, and he kept us safe."
“The exchange between Jeb Bush and Donald Trump over whether George W. Bush deserves blame for the attacks of 9/11 deserves an unequivocally affirmative answer, yes, yes, yes. He is responsible at least on two different levels,” Professor Fetzer said.
“In terms of the official account, which we know to be false, the Bush/Cheney administration received many warnings about the possibility of terrorist attacks, even including a memorandum that Condoleezza Rice acknowledged during the investigations into 9/11 that would subsequently take place, asking whether --even actually affirming -- that Bin Laden was planning to strike in the United States. So even on the most superficial, trivial level the answer is yes,” he added.
“But on the deeper level, the situation is far more profound, because George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Condoleezza Rice, Paul Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith, General Richard Myers, Rudy Giuliani, Larry Silverstein, and others were more profoundly involved in making the arrangements that led to 9/11, which were intended to transform American foreign policy from one in which -- at least officially -- we have never attacked any nation that has not attacked us first to one in which we became an aggressive nation, striking first in Afghanistan, after we had appealed to the Taliban to turn Osama bin Laden over to us,” he continued.
