"For those willing to cut through the campaign season bluster, Ilhan Omar’s [9/11] comments dare us to name names." Max Blumenthal names some names.

Behind the Omar Outrage: Suppressed History of 9/11

In Washington, 9/11 is understood as an act of inexplicable evil that materialized out of a clear blue sky. “They hate us because we’re free,” Americans are still told in a semi-official drone, conveniently excising the attacks that took place on 9/11 from their historical context. This ruthlessly enforced interpretation has had the effect of displacing blame from those who bear direct or indirect responsibility for the attacks onto much more convenient scapegoats like the Islamic faith and its diverse mass of adherents.

In my new book, “The Management of Savagery,” I explain which people did what things to lay the groundwork for the worst terror attack on U.S. soil.

The one area Max doesn't touch is exactly what I pointed to. I'm not exactly sure why.
