Charles Krauthammer

9/11 Truth Skeptic Hornberger Challenges Krauthammer on Operation Northwoods

Jacob Hornberger is the founder and president of The Future of Freedom Foundation. In a new editorial at LewRockwell.com (Operation Northwoods and the 9/11 Truthers), he admits that he believes Operation Northwoods is a valid historical fact; and he challenges neocon Charles Krauthammer as follows:

"How about it, Krauthammer? How about explaining your shock and outrage about the 9/11 Truthers to the Washington Post's readers in the context of a discussion about Operation Northwoods? I’m sure lots of people (including me) – would love to read your explanation."

Yes, that is an encouraging challenge; however, regrettably, Hornberger pulls his own version of a Krauthammer in the same editorial. It reads as follows:

"One possible reason for Krauthammer’s reaction [to 9/11 Truthers' claims] is that he simply isn’t convinced by the evidence that the Truthers have produced to make their case. Personally, this is the category I fall into. ... The 9/11 attacks were "blowback" from U.S. foreign policy. The 9/11 Truthers have not convinced me otherwise."
