I know, I know. It’s getting kind of old, pointing out that everything Donald Trump thinks he knows about foreign policy, he probably picked up from the comments section of DailyKos. But he really and clearly cannot help himself. President Obama is on his way to Saudi Arabia for an official visit, so Trump decided to take this opportunity to call for the declassification of certain portions of the 9/11 Congressional report.
He also reiterated his stance that he was always against the Iraq war – which has since been proven false, but what do facts matter to Trump or his supporters anyway? But then Trump dropped this bomb, which is an anti-Bush talking point that was invented by the most demented and factually challenged leftists on earth:
“You know, again I’ve said it for a long time, we attacked Iraq and frankly by attacking Iraq they were not the ones who knocked down the World Trade Center. I’ve been saying that for a long time, let’s see what the paper say. I think they should have been released a long time ago, I think they’re finally going to be in some form released,” Trump said.
You know who else said that Iraq was not the ones who knocked down the World Trade Center? Literally everyone. At no time did George W. Bush or anyone in his administration claim that we were going to invade Iraq because they knocked down the World Trade Center.
You know who invented this particular red herring? Code Pink and their allies in the Democratic party. And what they said specifically is that we should not invade Iraq because they weren’t responsible for 9/11, to which anyone who was paying attention at the time said, “who the hell said that’s why we were invading Iraq in the first place?”
We don’t need to declassify anything to know that a claim that Code Pink invented in their own heads and then attributed to George W. Bush is false. The only person who thinks that this is some sort of hidden information is Donald J. Trump and the anti-war Internet leftists who have apparently been feeding Trump his foreign policy talking points for the last 15 years.
