Asked if the government was withholding information about 9/11 because it doesn’t fit with the official narrative, Republican Rep. Pete Sessions replied with a question about who shot President John F. Kennedy.
“Do you think that Oswald was the only person to shoot Jack Kennedy, our president?” Sessions said in response to a student in a Berkner High School AP government class in December 2013.
A spokesperson for the Rep. Sessions’ office clarified his comments to BuzzFeed:
Congressman Sessions was responding to a question that, remarkably and despite all evidence to the contrary, still pops up from time to time about what actually happened on 9/11. Unfortunately, innocent people never could have imagined such a horrific attack prior to its occurrence and because of that some people still might not believe what actually happened. The Congressman’s response to that disbelief is clear. We know precisely what happened on September 11, 2001. Terrorists from al-Qaeda hijacked four planes, one of which was flown into the Pentagon here in Washington and another which was taken down by American heroes in Pennsylvania so that the terrorists could not kill more innocent people wherever the terrorists had intended to fly that plane.
“Do you think that Oswald was the only person who to shoot Jack Kennedy our president?” Sessions said. “I don’t know. You know, if they go down there and recreate it, it’s really hard for a guy with that rifle to pop-pop-pop. When my dad was the FBI director the number one question was ‘Who really killed Kennedy?’ I don’t know. I don’t know. I was in Washington; I wasn’t close, but let me tell you what: That plane did come and land at the Pentagon and that was a bunch of evil people and I will tell you the guys that took down the plane over Pennsylvania were heroes and I will tell you that guys were thugs that initially came after us and we were innocent people who never thought this would happen.”
