As the Super Bowl looms over New York City, an old accusation is once again looming over Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll: Its rumored hes a 9/11 truther.
In June, Deadspin ran an article republishing it last week detailing a meeting Carroll had with recently retired four-star Army General Peter Chiarelli. The conversation, which reportedly started off friendly, escalated when the topic switched to Iraq.
So did the discussion last year turn hostile? A source close to Chiarelli, one who wasnt present when he spoke to Carroll, told us that it did, Deadspin reported. He said the general had to leave the room because Carroll had rankled him so thoroughly.
Is Seattle Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll a 9/11 Truther?
According to Deadspin, the Seahawks coach grilled the retired general over the legitimacy of the official 9/11 story.
In particular, Carroll wanted to know whether the attack on the Pentagon had really happened. Chiarelliwho was the top-ranking Army official inside the Pentagon when American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into its western sideexplained that it had, the June report said. He said he had lost many colleagues. But Carroll didnt stop there. He ran through the whole 9/11 truther litany.
Every 9/11 conspiracy theory you can think of, Pete asked about.
The Deadspin report went on:
Every 9/11 conspiracy theory you can think of, Pete asked about, said Riki Ellison, the former NFL linebacker who now runs the Missile Defense Advocacy Alliance and introduced Carroll to Chiarelli. Ellison, along with Seahawks offensive line coach Pat Ruel, was at the meeting as well. And he didnt stop at 9/11he had lots of questions about the role of the military today.
It does not appear that Carroll ever responded to the allegations made in the June Deadspin article.
The resurfacing of the story comes as Carroll prepares to lead the Seahawks in their second franchise appearance at the Super Bowl in New York.
This week, popular Seattle-born rapper Maclemore also garnered attention for a tweet he sent out in 2009, saying former President George W. Bush was behind 9/11.
Did Carroll set him up to do it? I was wondering how someone got in there. it’s not easy.
You believe Bush planned it?
Isn’t it, being a 9-11 Truther, a requirement to live in Seattle?
It seems insanity is epidemic.
All one needs to see is the look on Bushs face at the School that morning when he was told that he had nothing to do with it
So if multiple eye witness accounts, including two personal friends of mine, saw a plane fly directly over their neighborhood and directly into the Pentagon, you think it’s faked.
I had a co-worker visiting from CA, I live in Northern VA, and as we drove past the Pentagon and I pointed out the spot where the plane hit, he said that he was surprised that with all the parking areas, roads and highways that there was no reports by witnesses of an airplane.
This is just one of the lies 9/11 conspiracy folks perpetuate.
There were hundreds of people that SAW the plane hit the Pentagon, hundreds. They were recounted in the Washington Post, as well as a number of local papers.
I firmly pointed this out to him.
But it wasn’t until later, when he met a survivor from the Pentagon, that he finally changed his tune.
What kind of a question is that? If you think GWB is capable of such a thing that’s your business, and your right I suppose. But I refuse to entertain the thought of that nonsense.
I said nothing about the twin towers. Try to read carefully before vomiting out a response.
Yeah, I knew a guy whose friend went outside and saw the plane hit the building.
This stuff is incredible.
Fortunately, the rational Charlie Sheen is a 9/11-Truther.
why was the hole in the Pentagon the shape of a missle?
I do not know if the ‘hawks coach is a 9/11 truther. However, I DO know that he is a known liar.
Also, my opinion is that he is one of the most effeminate men I have ever seen. He is either a closet homosexual or maybe he has not realized that he is homosexual.
Proof: During practices he gets out on the field passing the ball to team members as if he is a quarterback.....demonstrating his ‘manliness’ and depriving his quarterbacks of valuable practice time.
Hey, ‘hawks coach! Come out of the closet!
I think this guy has pretty much nailed the dastardly conspiracy:
That was awesome !!!
I remember when that first popped up and have looked for it a number of times over the years. With no luck.
You have successfully posted the most idiotic comment so far this morning. Congratulations.
Agreed. Sounds like butthurt to me.
Some idiots won’t believe eyewitnesses from hundreds of individuals but will believe any unproven theory told to them about global warming from “scientists” (read: “people who need funding”)like its the gospel.
Hole? There wasn't a hole. A whole section of the building was missing. Link
I think Pete Carroll is skeptical of his government. Just because you happen to be skeptical of your government doesn’t make you a “truther”.
Who cares? Did you note when the sports people were trying to interview him after the game, he didn’t want to be bothered with their BS and stated as he pushed them aside, “I want to be with my team!!!”
Which part of the post is ‘idiotic’? ;-)
I am so bookmarking it.
Both have been adequately explained. Repeatedly.
No, because I turned the game off at the end of the 3rd quarter.
Nor did ilgipper say anything about the towers.
With all due respect, you're an idiot.
Seattle is a sad excuse. Home to Macklemore and Pete Carroll, both 9/11 Truthers.
Do you really expect the ALUMINUM wings filled with high octane fuel of an aircraft flying at 500 mph to not disintegrate when they made contact with a 2’ thick masonry building?
FYI, they found the engines inside the third ring of the building.
You must be a Paulbot...
The way Carroll lumbers and clomps up and down the sideline like a clumsy draft horse, “EFFEMINATE” is probably the LAST word I’d use to describe him.
As for his throwing passes during practice diminishing the play of his quarterbacks; It sure was glaringly obvious Sunday night, wasn’t it?/Sarc
Nope. Not a “Paulbot”, as you put it. Although I don’t have the same ill feelings for him that many seem to.
He’s being paid to win Super Bowls, not about his beliefs.
How do you explain all the missing people on American 77 which crashed into the Pentagon - 1 of which was well known conservative pundit Barbara Brachen Olson, wife of the U.S. Solicitor General Ted Olson? Ted Olson remarried in 2006.
Didn't read the 9/11 report but always presumed WTC#7 caught fire from debris falling on it from WTC #1/#2.
I DON’T KNOW. WHAT DO YOU THINK?
“Isnt it, being a 9-11 Truther, a requirement to live in Seattle?”
No. There are plenty of us that live here that do not believe that.
“All of it.”
Ah-HA! Yet another ‘hawks fan or maybe an ex-USC fan or both with blinders on!
Thank you so much for your comments after my merely stating an opinion. ;-)
The one American politician who benefited from the attacks was Hillary Clinton, because Barbara Olson was one of those killed in the plane which slammed into the Pentagon.
I don't believe that anyone in the US government was involved in the attacks, but if anyone was, it would have been Hillary.
Google: ‘chicken wire 9/11 democratic underground’
Actually I agree with Ron Paul on about 75 % of his positions.....it’s the other 25 % where he is batshit crazy....
Really? We're going here on this website? Do you see any similarity in the shape of a plane and shape of a missile when it hits it's target? There's video the plane going low towards the Pentagon? Where did the plane go?
There were fires inside the building from something, to be sure. But from the films I saw and was explained by the narrator, not only were the fires well shy of what's needed to take down a structure like WTC7, but the collapse looks mights close to a take-down via demolition.
“This is just one of the lies 9/11 conspiracy folks perpetuate.
There were hundreds of people that SAW the plane hit the Pentagon, hundreds...”
I stand corrected then.
