Democrat Presidential frontrunner Senator Barack Obama has responded to a question posed by an Infowars reader regarding government complicity in the September 11th 2001 terrorist attacks.

Three months after the reader sent Obama a correspondence outlining her great concern that criminal elements of the government were directly complicit in the attacks, the Senator sent the following response via email, which was then forwarded to us:

Dear Penny:

Thank you for contacting me regarding your belief that the U.S. government was complicit in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001. I appreciate hearing your passionate views on this matter.

While I do not believe the U.S. government was complicit in the attacks, I do think it should be held accountable for the unacceptable mistakes it made in the run-up to that terrible day. The blunders that occurred prior to the 2001 attacks were inexcusable and often outrageous. The series of clear warnings about the potential use of hijacked planes as weapons is just one example of why the "surprise" of 9/11 should have been anticipated. In my view, proof of government complicity is not necessary when making the argument that the U.S. should accept some responsibility for what happened on 9/11.

Thank you again for writing.


Barack Obama
United States Senator

It is no surprise then that Obama dismisses the claims of complicity out of hand and cites the official conspiracy theory that 'mistakes' and 'blunders' account for the full stand down of U.S. air defenses on 9/11, the desist orders to FBI officials investigating Bin Laden immediately prior to the attacks, and the vast amount of insider profiteering that occurred - to name just a smattering of the core issues.

The Senator is more than willing to say that the U.S. should bear some responsibility for the attacks yet stays silent on whether a true independent investigation should be carried out to, at the very least, punish those responsible for said 'blunders' and, at most, uncover the truth that has been hidden behind a wall of whitewashing.

The fact remains that the only Presidential candidate who would seriously consider a new 9/11 investigation is Texas Congressman Ron Paul. Appearing on The Alex Jones Show last month [MP3 link] he had the following to say about 9/11:

CALLER: I want a complete, impartial, and totally independent investigation of the events of September 11, 2001 . I'm tired of this bogus garbage about terrorism. Ask Michael Meacher about how he feels about this bogus war on terrorism. Can you comment on that please?

HON. DR. RON PAUL: Well, that would be nice to have. Unfortunately, we don't have that in place. It will be a little bit better now with the Democrats now in charge of oversight. But you know, for top level policy there's not a whole lot of difference between the two policies so a real investigation isn't going to happen. But I think we have to keep pushing for it. And like you and others, we see the investigations that have been done so far as more or less cover-up and no real explanation of what went on.

Ron Paul's Presidential exploratory committee need not report contributions under $200 to the FEC. Why not show your support for a new 9/11 investigation by sending him a check for $199.11?
