“Trump says he may know who is responsible (for 9/11), but I doubt very much that he’s going to acknowledge that it was the CIA, in collaboration with the neocons and the Department of Defense, most of whom were dual US- Israeli citizens, and the Mossad,” said James Fetzer, a retired professor of philosophy at the University of Minnesota, Presstv Reported.
“I and other students of 9/11 have been hopeful that Trump might actually dig in to 9/11 and reveal the truth,” Fetzer told Press TV on Friday.
However, this is unlikely, “given the extent to which the foreign policy of the Trump administration is under the control of the Zionist [lobby],” he added.
In an exclusive interview with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos broadcast on Sunday, Trump categorically said that “Iraq did not knock down the World Trade Center.”
“It was not Iraq,” he told the American broadcaster. “It were other people. And I think I know who the other people were. And you might also.”
Trump also criticized Washington’s military intervention in the Middle East, which he said was ”the worst decision made in the history of our country.”
He described the Middle East region as “like quicksand.”
“It was a terrible decision to go into the Middle East. Terrible. We’re now up to almost $8t trillion (£6.4trn). And when we want to build a roadway, a highway, a school, or something, everyone’s always fighting over money. It’s ridiculous. So that was a bad decision,” he added.
The September, 11, 2001 attacks, also known as the 9/11 attacks, were a series of strikes in the US which killed nearly 3,000 people and caused about $10 billion worth of property and infrastructure damage.
US officials assert that the attacks were carried out by 19 al-Qaeda terrorists but many experts have raised questions about the official account.
They believe that rogue elements within the US government, such as former Vice President Dick Cheney, orchestrated or at least encouraged the 9/11 attacks in order to accelerate the US war machine and advance the Zionist agenda.
