It’s not too often you’ll see me throwing props to former President Clinton, but here it is.

I was astounded to read last week that nearly 20% of Americans believe that the attacks on 9/11 were orchestrated as an inside job. Perpetrated to embroil this country in a fake war on terror.

20%. I’m looking around my office area at about 50 people, and it sickens me to think that 10 of those people think the US government allowed nearly 3,000 of its citizens to be wiped out.

That belief is mostly held by the far left wing, so it isn’t really news if a Republican or conservative dismisses them. But when the country’s most famous Democrat does, it’s worth noting.

Bill Clinton Takes On 9/11 Conspiracy Protesters

Now, even though I’m a self-proclaimed conservative, you won’t see much bashing of Bill Clinton on this website. He wasn’t the best president, to be sure. His personal choices with regards to morality are among the dumbest around. However, he’s an extremely intelligent individual who realized that in order to get elected, he needed to ride the middle of the road and win the moderate vote. Consequently, his presidency was neither all the Democrats could dream of nor all the Republicans could dread. It was….meh. He enacted a lot of laws that were actually Republican ideas (to his credit) while trying to keep his fellow Democrats happy.

I said all that to say thanks to Bill Clinton for getting it right on this issue.
