9/11 Truther Endorses Hagel
9/11 Truther Endorses Hagel

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

Noted 9/11 Truther Ray McGovern endorsed former Sen. Chuck Hagel (R., Neb.) to be President Barack Obama’s next Defense Secretary in an op-ed in the Baltimore Sun Thursday. ...

McGovern—who endorsed the book 9/11 and American Empire (Vol. 1): Intellectuals Speak Out for providing “compelling evidence … that the 9/11 attacks were themselves orchestrated by [the George W. Bush] administration precisely so they could be thus exploited”—has blamed Israel for problems in the Middle East and promotes the USS Liberty conspiracy theory. He delivered a speech last year on Israel and Iran that implied there was an Israeli conspiracy to deny Obama a second term. McGovern has also supported Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

It is not known if the White House solicited the 9/11 Truther to defend Hagel’s potential nomination.
