Investigative reporter, Greg Palast is reporting on Alternet about now ex-congresswoman, Cynthia McKinney.
“McKinney implied that the [Bush] Administration knew in advance about September 11 and deliberately held back the information,” said the media. The New York Times said, “Ms. McKinney suggest[ed] that President Bush might have known about the September 11 attacks but did nothing so his supporters could make money in a war.” She was beaten to death, politically, by the fabricated quote in the 2002 Democratic Primary.
But Greg Palast did some investigation, and despite his best efforts, can find no evidence that she said these things. The closest he comes up with is a quote from her saying, “George Bush had no prior knowledge of the plan to attack the World Trade Center on September 11.”
Of course Cynthia McKinney kicked up a bit of a fuss about a few things embarassing to the Bush administration. Read on for the dirt and history.
