Fascinating to see Marianne Williamson agreeing with Kevin Barrett on 9/11: Scholar

US presidential hopeful Marianne Williamson has come under scrutiny for agreeing with Dr. Kevin Barrett on the 9/11 false flag operation in a 2012 interview.

An American academic and analyst has said that it is fascinating to see US Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson agreeing with Dr. Kevin Barrett on the 9/11 false flag operation in a 2012 interview.

“It’s a fascinating development that CNN would report that the candidate for the Democratic nomination for the president in 2020, Marianne Williamson, had an interview with Kevin Barrett on his program Truth Jihad in which Kevin was expressing his skepticism about 9/11 and the research he has done for which he has forfeited a position at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, and Marianne Williamson agreed with him that it was perfectly legitimate to raise questions about 9/11, comparing it to the legitimacy of raising questions about the assassination of JFK about for example the so-called magic bullet theory on which the government official account revolves,” James Fetzer, a retired professor of philosophy at the University of Minnesota, told Press TV in an interview on Saturday.

CNN published a slanderous article written by Jamie Ehrlich, Em Steck and Andrew Kaczynski on its website in which they called they criticized Williamson and described Dr. Barrett as a prominent "truther" and “conspiracy theorist.”

In the 2012 appearance, Williamson agreed with host Dr. Barrett and said that questioning the factual history of the September 11, 2001, attacks was acceptable and no different than questioning the government account of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

The 67-year-old Texas Democrat was a guest on Truth Jihad Radio, a radio show hosted by Dr. Barrett, an American academic who has been studying the events of 9/11 since late 2003.

Dr. Barrett, a founding member of the Scientific Panel for the Investigation of 9/11, has said that the US Deep State and Israeli Zionists were involved in orchestrating the 9/11 operation and that Kennedy and Texas Gov. John Connally could not have been shot by the same bullet. Barrett has said in interviews on Press TV that 9/11 was an "inside job," and a "Zionist coup d'état" to seize power in the country and launch a permanent war on Islam on behalf of Israel.

"I don't know if you knew it, but I was chased out of the academy back in 2006 for talking about, uh, the questions surrounding what really happened on September 11, 2001," Barrett said to Williamson on the show.

"I've lost two jobs, one tenure track job at the University of Wisconsin and I'm unemployable at the American academy right now. So, if we have a fascist country -- if that means that you can't even come close to telling the truth about the most important event of the century and still have a job as a professor, or at least you're risking your job -- then we're pretty fascist," Barrett said.

"Yeah, I couldn't agree with you more," Williamson responded. "And I think listen, to have questions about 9/11, to me, is no different than having questions about the Warren Commission. And I don't believe in the single bullet theory of the Kennedy assassination either."

The September, 11, 2001 attacks, also known as the 9/11 attacks, were a series of strikes in the US which killed nearly 3,000 people and caused about $10 billion worth of property and infrastructure damage.

US officials assert that the attacks were carried out by 19 al-Qaeda terrorists but many experts have raised questions about the official account.

They believe that rogue elements within the US government, such as former Vice President Dick Cheney, orchestrated or at least encouraged the 9/11 attacks in order to accelerate the US war machine and advance the Zionist agenda.
