Don’t be ridiculous. This isn’t “Trutherism.” He’s criticizing the Bush administration for ignoring warnings.

I find it sad that the debate is headed into the realm of blaming Bush for 9/11.

I agree. Trutherism is saying that Bush and/or the government orchestrated the 9/11 attacks. Accusing Bush of negligence and allowing 9/11 to happen is not Trutherism.

In addition, saying that all the facts about 9/11 aren’t available, and there should be a more complete investigation into the 9/11 attacks isn’t Trutherism either. You may not agree with that position, but it’s incorrect to call someone who says that a Truther.

re: #3 thecommodore

There is no hard definition of “trutherism”. There are several versions.
One is that the *government* attacked the US.
Another is that the CIA (or the CIA and the Mossad) attacked the US.
And yet another version is that *Bush knew, but allowed the attack* to happen.
This video represents the latter version.

That’s not to mention that both the congressman and the moonbat msnbc host were inaccurate in their pronouncements concerning the memos.

Nice try at deflection.

Hmm…I don’t really see the “trutherism” here either. I wish I had the rest of the video for context, but it seems like the point he’s making is that Obama is getting a lot of criticism from the right about “loving the perpetrators of 9/11” or whatever nonsense Gellar is shouting on Fox. I think Grayson is rebutting that by saying Bush had more to do with 9/11 than Obama, and Obama is focused on the mosque/community center issue.

Now, he did go out on a limb with some insinuating points about Bush that are probably more political than factual, but compare this rhetoric to what Pam Gellar & Newt Gingrich are saying…
