Peace activist Cindy Sheehan delivered an impassioned speech on the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, claiming allegiance with those who believe the terrorist attacks of that day were orchestrated by the United States government for political gain.
“I am a 9/11 Truther,” Sheehan told a large crowd at the All Souls Church on the upper East Side of Manhattan, who endorsed her with a long standing ovation.
“I do think it was an inside job,” Sheehan said. “We just don’t know – I don’t know – how far inside it went. But, you know, I’m sure Dick Cheney had something to do with it.”
During her speech marking the ninth anniversary of 9/11, Sheehan told the audience to stop looking at the attacks as a left-right issue. “Whether it’s someone from the Republicans or the Democrats, or the military industrial complex – it’s all the same,” she said, adding that US President Barack Obama has done everything “to protect the criminals of the Bush regime.”
Sheehan has shown support for the various conspiracy theories collectively known as The 9/11 Truth Movement as early as 2007 during an interview on The Alex Jones Show, where she said the collapse of the World Trade Center towers looked like a controlled demolition and questioned why US air defense forces were distracted that morning.
