(VINnews) On Monday, Jake Turx stirred up a bit of controversy on Twitter, when he questioned who the real villain was behind the 9/11 attacks.
While the noted Ami columnist and White House correspondent did not appear to suggest that Bin Laden and Al Qaeda were not responsible, he questioned what specific evidence exists, proving Bin Laden’s culpability. He appeared to agree that Khaleed Sheik Mohammed was the 9/11 architect, and only questioned OBL’s role.
In addition, Turx pointed out the idiosyncratic notion that the same government which, after many weeks, is incapable of pinpointing the culprit who left a bag of cocaine in the White House, managed to identify Bin Laden as the 9/11 mastermind within hours.
Turx tweeted: “Can someone explain to me how the same government that still has no clue who brought cocaine into the West Wing, was somehow able to pinpoint Osama Bin Laden, from some cave halfway around the world, as the mastermind of 9/11 within mere hours?”
He continued, “While I love a good conspiracy as much as the next guy, that’s not what this is about at all. I’m genuinely drawing a blank on what evidence we’ve actually been presented that OBL was behind it. Think of how long it takes the US gvmt to figure out anything, but somehow, they managed to solve this one in hours, at a time when the whole government was crippled?”

One Twitter user, Walter Sobchak, grilled Turx, however he did not appear to provide a substantive rebuttal to Jake’s questions.
He wrote, “Not only was there direct evidence that Al Qaeda trained 9/11 terrorists, but Osama bin Laden literally announced that he carried out the 9/11 attacks. I get that some feel the need to question everything, but maybe we should do a Google search before defending Osama bin Laden….”
Turx responded that he was not defending Bin Laden, just questioning the facts. He wrote: “No one is defending anyone. Just remind me what that direct evidence was so we can all move on.”
Sobchak then accused Turx of engaging in copnsiracy theories, and rubbing salt on the wounds of 9/11 victims’ families. He suggested that Turx read books about the topic. However he did not provide any evidence, or name any books.
Jake we met in real life & I think you’re a good dude, but it’s important to read books about topics you’re interested in beyond having conspiracy theory discussions on Twitter. 9/11 badly hurt a lot of people. No need to rub on their wounds.

Turx repled, “I haven’t promoted a single conspiracy theory. I asked what I thought was a simple question, and no one seems to have an answer. As far as I know, KSM was the mastermind behind 9/11. But what was OBL’s role? How are we so certain? And how did we already know this ON 9/11?”
Sobchak replied, “There are a lot of books about 9/11. How many have you read?”
Turx said, “I just want to see one book that presents evidence tying OBL to 9/11. Where do I find this book?”
At that point Sobchak said, “Maybe like contact someone who is familiar with research and talk to them about it.”
He also said that he was not going to respond by giving Jake “an intel briefing”.
