IS SEATTLE SEAHAWKS COACH PETE CARROLL A 9/11 TRUTHER?
The Blaz ^ | Jan. 28, 2014 | Oliver Darcy

Posted on 02/03/2014 9:42:58 AM PST by nickcarraway

As the Super Bowl looms over New York City, an old accusation is once again looming over Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll: It’s rumored he’s 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 wasn’t 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. Chiarelli—who was the top-ranking Army official inside the Pentagon when American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into its western side—explained that it had,” the June report said. “He said he had lost many colleagues. But Carroll didn’t 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 didn’t stop at 9/11—he 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.

I think it's pretty well known the 9/11 Commission Report was a shameless whitewash. The hit on the Pentagon and the collapse of Bldg 7 in Manhattan, are only the most egregious of the events that cannot/will not be explained truthfully.

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.

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.

So....

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 Pete Carroll is skeptical of his government. Just because you happen to be skeptical of your government doesn’t make you a “truther”.

“why was the hole in the Pentagon the shape of a missle?”

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.

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

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.

There is a Roman legal maxim, Cui bono? "Who benefits?"

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.

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?

“Didn't read the 9/11 report but always presumed WTC#7 caught fire from debris falling on it from WTC #1/#2.”

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.
