Chafee, Republican For Obama, Wants 9/11 Reinvestigated
The National Review ^ | August 14, 2008 | Jim Geraghty

Posted on 08/15/2008 10:29:15 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Two news items that really ought to run together:

August 13, Providence Journal:

Ex-Sen. Chafee joins Republicans for Obama

August 13, Gothamist:

Actor Ed Asner, former Dallas Cowboy Mark Stepnoski, and formerly famous hip hop group Arrested Development are leading a petition drive to get a referendum on New York City’s November ballot that would establish a new 9/11 investigation. If the group, called 911 Truth, can collect 30,000 signatures before September 4th, the City Council will be required to consider the measure, which calls for an investigative panel with subpoena authority.

Former Senator Mike Gravel (who would join the panel along with former senator Lincoln Chafee, Asner and 9/11 widow Lorie Van Auken) tells NY Mag that “the original commission didn’t get to the bottom of anything. We need to investigate from scratch.” Among the “Top 40” reasons the group gives to doubt the official story of 9/11, from their website:

"Al-CIA-da?" The longstanding relationship between US intelligence networks and radical Islamists. Flight 93. Did the Shanksville crash occur at 10:06 (according to a seismic report) or 10:03 (according to the 9/11 Commission)? Does the Commission wish to hide what happened in the last three minutes of the flight, and if so, why?

Pentagon Strike. How was it possible the Pentagon was hit 1 hour and 20 minutes after the attacks began? Why was there no response from Andrews Air Force Base, just 10 miles away.

Does Team Obama need one-third of the "Republicans For Obama" giving off a whiff of Truther?

These guys sure are fixated on minutes. I remember so many Dems., from Michael Moore on down, were pissed off at Bush because he stayed in that school on Sept. 11th for 7 minutes after the aide whispered in his ear about the attacks. I have never believed that we would have had any better response to Sept. 11th if only Bush had jumped out of his seat immediately and started running around barking out orders.

“But, we need EVERY Republican in Congress we can get! RINOs are still Republicans!”

This sort of mantra by many here on Free Republic shows just how short-sighted those same people are.

It is better to fight for the potentially less practical, conservative candidate every time. That national party had supported this idiot for years, too, over more conservative options.

I hate to admit it, but I'm very likely going to vote for McCain, a man only a half-degree off from Chafee, simply because we have no practical alternative.

This country is nuts. At least, with Chafee’s help, we'll know the “truth” behind Chaney's planting of the charges in the Trade Center—NOT!

And if that happened, Moore would be saying, "Look at how scared little Bushie is! It's like he prepared to act that way, like he knew this was going to happen, and wanted to use the opportunity of Americans dying to polish his 'take no prisoners' image. His being so agitated shows he'd been drinking, and realized he didn't have what it takes to be in charge of the Amerikkkan war machine, while at the same time shows he is an evil overlord in charge of that same war machine."

When asked about the contradictions in that statement, Moore would call the questioner a Nazi. And then Bill Maher's audience would laugh and applaud.

Whenever one of these nuts opens their mouth to me, I tell them they are racists...How so? Well...what are they really saying..they’re saying that although Muslims have taken the credit, they don’t believe that they are capable of pulling of such a dastardly plan. They must be too stupid..NO..the only people smart enough to pull off such a caper are OLD WHITE GUYS....Think about it.

I actually think the true racists are those who want us to intervene in Darfur but are against the war in Iraq.

Saddam was killing more people than in Darfur so are those people saying only the darfur people are worth saving?

Rosie o’Donnell said that the way the WTC collapsed indicated that there were likely explosives planted in the buildings. After all, Rosie knows a thing or two about the structure of buildings and the laws of physics, doesn’t she? (sarcasm)

Ah yes, this is something I forgot to mention on any anonymous thread to whoever would listen. All the Obama supporters are in lockstep on a number of issues but one of their issues that they seem to believe overwhelmingly is that 9/11 was an inside job.

Obama should be asked about 9/11 with all due haste before the convention. Many people, even talk radio hosts don't mention that horrible day very much anymore. But the defilement of that day by liberals should be used as a weapon against liberals by derailing of their uberlord, Obama. Obama would have a hard time not appeasing his base about who is responsible for 9/11.

You’re just now figuring that out?! I have been around the steel mines all my life. Steel is naturally occurring and comes out of the ground in the shape of bicycle and engine parts, nuts, bolts and girders. Just whatever ya need, just look around and it is there. Well, except ball-bearings, they are becoming increasingly rare and may soon move from threatened to the endangered list. :)

I think Chafee secretly blew up the WTC so that Bush and Cheney would get blamed, and then he could run for a cabinet post under the new RAT POTUS. Yes... that's it and a new investigation will reveal all...

As soon as they figure out that Controlled Demolition Inc. and Senator Barbara Mikulski are both from Maryland this call for another 9/11 investigation will be dropped like an undercooked Polock Johnny's hotdog.

What did that fat little lesbian know and when did she know it?

I couldn’t agree more, tolerating this RINO and others like Snowe from Maine always comes back to embarrass and undermine the Republicans and their legislative agenda. Party over principle always equals the diminution of the party. Unity, always a necessary component for victory, can not be built on party loyalty it must be the result of a shared set of core values and principles. The “big tent” of the Republican party will continue to shrink as long as those in leadership believe that sub dividing it is a plausible paradigm for growth.

There were 8 minutes of unique ums and uhs in a 40 minute press conference from Obama this year. Rush’s staff edited them together from that single appearance with NO repeats. Someone should loop that sound from Obama over Mikey Moore’s footage with the timer running.

“It is better to fight for the potentially less practical, conservative candidate every time. That national party had supported this idiot for years, too, over more conservative options.”

That may be, but for Rhode Island Chafee was almost too conservative. You will never win a senate or house seat from Rhode Island with a hard core conservative candidate. Among RI Republicans serving in Congress in the last 30 years: Claudine Schneider, John Chafee, Lincoln Chafee. Not a single conservative.
