RFK Jr. backs conspiracy theory about September 11 terror attacks
Democratic Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. said that he doesn’t “always accept official explanations,” which includes the explanation of what happened in the September 11 terrorist attacks.
“I don’t know what happened on 9/11,” Mr. Kennedy said in a podcast interview with journalist Peter Bergen. “I know there are strange things that happened. …One of the buildings came down that wasn’t hit by a plane.”
He was referring to the conspiracy theory about World Trade Center Building 7, an office building that collapsed after it caught fire from debris from the other buildings.
When Mr. Bergen presented this official explanation, Mr. Kennedy said: “I don’t want to argue any theories about this because all I’ve heard is questions. I have no explanation. I have no knowledge of it, but what you’re repeating now I know not to be true.”
He said that he doesn’t “endorse” the theory but that it “ought to be permissible in this country to question official narratives.”
This isn’t the first time that Mr. Kennedy has espoused conspiracy theories. He previously said that COVID-19 was “ethnically targeted” and that there was “overwhelming evidence” that the CIA was involved in the assassination of his uncle, President John F. Kennedy.
