US Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump continues to expose the Bush family’s role in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in an effort to destroy Jeb Bush’s campaign, an American scholar and political analyst says.

Dr. Kevin Barrett, a founding member of the Scientific Panel for the Investigation of 9/11, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Sunday while commenting on a heated exchange between Bush and Trump during the ninth Republican presidential debate on Saturday night.

Trump blamed Jeb’s brother, former US President George W. Bush, for the collapse of the World Trade Center and the death of 3,000 Americans in New York on September 11, 2001.

“The World Trade Center came down during your brother’s reign, remember that,” Trump said, after Jeb declared that he was “sick and tired of him going after my family.”

Marco Rubio jumped in by saying “at least on behalf of me and my family, I thank God all the time it was George W. Bush in the White House on 9/11 and not Al Gore. And you can — I think you can look back in hindsight and say a couple of things, but he kept us safe.”

“How did he keep us safe when the World Trade Center — the World — excuse me. I lost hundreds of friends. The World Trade Center came down during the reign of George Bush. He kept us safe? That is not safe. That is not safe, Marco. That is not safe,” Trump roared back.

Trump’s controlled demolition of Jeb campaign

“Donald Trump is continuing with his controlled demolition of the campaign of Jeb Bush by continuing to raise the issue of George W. Bush’s responsibility -- or some would say guilt -- for what happened on September 11th 2001,” Dr. Barrett said.

“We’re getting headlines in the mainstream media such as, ‘9/11 was your brother's fault! Trump's extraordinary assault on Jeb Bush,’ and 'The World Trade Center came down': Donald Trump and Jeb Bush unload on each other in explosive debate exchange,” he added.

“That was an explosive debate exchange in more ways than one, because what Donald Trump was alluding to was the explosive controlled demolition of the three skyscrapers in New York on September 11th 2001,” he stated.

The analyst said 9/11 was “a coup d'etat, an inside job, a covert operation, a false flag event -- however you want to term it. It was conducted by insiders working with the Israelis to eventually take the US to war with Israel’s enemies in the Middle East. And this was done under the watch of George W. Bush, whose brother, Jeb, participated in the crime.”

Jeb is part of CIA drug smuggling cabal

“Jeb actually flew into the Florida airstrips, which were in fact CIA drug import airstrips, according to the very careful and well-documented research of Daniel Hopsicker. And he absconded with the evidence that these were not actual flight schools, where the official story tells us that these were flight schools to train the alleged 9/11 hijackers. But actually they were not functioning flight schools,” Dr. Barrett said.

“So it’s very clear that Jeb Bush is part of the same CIA drug smuggling cabal as his brother and father. These are the people who conspired with the Israelis to blow up the World Trade Center, murder 3,000 people on September 11th, to take the US to into an eternal war footing primarily against the enemies of Israel, but also of course they doubled the military budget," he pointed out.

“So, Donald Trump keeps poking this sore spot on Jeb Bush’s anatomy. He continues to rattle Jeb Bush in these debates, and what happened last night I hope is just the beginning of some even more frank talk from Donald Trump about what really happened on September 11th, how the wars are all completely fraudulent, and how the United States needs to rebuild its own infrastructure and economy and mind its own business,” concluded Dr. Barrett, editor of We Are Not Charlie Hebdo and scholar of Arabic and Islamic studies.
