    Here he goes again.

    Trump says the 9/11 hijackers and terrorists wives knew exactly what was going to happen.

    “They [the 9/11 hijackers] put their families on airplanes a couple of days before, sent them back to Saudi Arabia, for the most part. Those wives knew exactly what was going to happen. And those wives went home to watch their husbands knock down the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and wherever the third plane was going, except we had some very, very brave passengers, wherever that third plane was going. Those wives knew exactly what was happening.”

    — businessman Donald Trump, remarks during an interview on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Dec. 6, 2015

    In the wake of the shootings in San Bernardino, Calif., involving a Muslim couple, Trump has emerged with a new claim: The 9/11 hijackers sent their wives home before the attacks — and those wives knew “exactly what was going to happen.”

    Is there any evidence to support this?

    The Facts
    The most exhaustive report on the 19 hijackers and their actions prior to the attack is the 9/11 Commission report. There is no support for Trump’s claims, as the report states that virtually all of the hijackers were unmarried.

    “None of the 9/11 terrorists could have ‘sent their wives home’ before the attacks because, as you suggest, none of them brought female companions to the United States,” said Philip D. Zelikow, executive director of the 9/11 Commission (and who is not affiliated with any campaign). “All, or nearly all, of the hijackers were unmarried, as far as we know. We did elaborate a bit about the story of one Lebanese hijacker, Ziad Jarrah [who was on United 93], and his German girlfriend.”

    He'll say it again and again and louder each time and the folks to whom he appeals will start repeating it like it's really the truth.

    At this point I think he is deliberately making misstatements to get the press coverage. When the press calls him out on his mistakes he gets free PR. This coverage takes away from whatever coverage was going to happen for the other candidates.

    I don't think many still get it, all the Compost is doing here is picking out one thing and trying to blow it up to derail Trump. It will ONLY make him stronger, the secret is out that the MSM is doing all they can to discredit Trump.

    And Trump was wrong here, there were no wives to fly away during 9-11 and so? He probably got it confused with Bush flying out all those Saudi families right 9-11. This "lie" will be treated with indifference at best and it's doubtful Trump will ever "apologize" to this self-appointed partisan fact checker, although he may retract part of the statement. More warm waters.

    I would support him in the general election against Hillary for certain. I'm going with Rand Paul in the primaries.

    Donald Trump has gotten more nightly network news coverage than the entire Democratic field combined

    Very interesting! Unlike the rich Republicans, I, too, will vote for the nominee in November 2016.

    to be expected. Everyone knows, including the networks, who the democrat nominee will be.
    Plus Trump is good for some off the wall quotes and they're looking for a chance to deal him a blow to kill his candidacy. Their usual tricks haven't worked so far.
