Rashard Mendenhall Twitter meltdown

While much of the country is celebrating the death of Osama Bin Laden, one man, Pittsburgh running back Rashard Mendenhall is basically defending him.

Oh, boy. I mean, seriously, Rashard, oh boy. This is going to be bad for you, bra'. Here is the link to his Twitter .

Mendenhall expresses doubt about September 11 after one of his followers said he was unconvinced Bin Laden was behind the attacks. "We'll never know what really happened," Mendenhall Tweeted. "I just have a hard time believing a plane could take a skyscraper down demolition style."

Full disclosure: Earlier I attributed a Tweet to Mendenhall someone else actually said. Stupid on my part. But I have to say, despite my dumb oversight, it really does sound like Mendenhall has serious doubts about 9-11.

He says: "We'll never know what really happened." Actually, we do. Terrorists hijacked planes loaded with jet fuel and used them as missiles. Two of their targets were hit. Unfortunately, and sadly, it's not that complicated.

Bin Laden did take credit for 9-11 attacks that sent thousands of Americans to their deaths and a large jet loaded with fuel absolutely could wipe out a skyscraper.

It's one thing to debate the effects of America's Middle East policies over the decades and how some of those policies haven't been in our country's best interests but it's another to join ranks with 9/11 conspiracy theorists.

Let me tell you about Mendenhall. I think he's actually quite smart. I've met him before. He's opinionated but I've never known him to be a conspiracy theorist. Or crazy.

There were other things on Mendenhall's Twitter timeline that were, well, interesting.

My guess: Mendenhall will clarify his remarks.

Soon.

Wow, you are a complete moron if you think Mendenhall is defending Bin Laden.  A complete moron.  I can't even fathom the degree of idiocy you have to employ to make that logical leap.  WOW.

Anyone who thinks that a single plane (even if it's filled to capacity with jet fuel) crashing into a big time skyscraper (made up of steel re-enforced concrete from top to bottom) would be enough to bring the whole skyscraper down is Stupid!! That's Stupid with a capital S! In order for Bin Laden to have brought these buildings down, he would have needed to hire building demolition experts that would have somehow, some way, secretly planted demolition devices throughout the various floors of the twin towers and made it look like the suicide plane missions he organized were the real culprit. Too bad the organization he was heading up was barely made up of maybe twenty people or so (rag-tag militants, NOTHING more!) Bin Laden didn't even start referring to himself (and his organization) as Al Qaeda until he learned THAT was the term the CIA had given his "organization" just AFTER 9/11. What does that tell you...???

Al Qaeda was NOT this vast terrorist organization with complex trees and sleeper cells in over 60 different countries like Perrenial Liar G.W. Bush said in that (in)famous 9/11 address to the nation.

BARACK OBAMA IS A LIAR. 
This is TRUE.  It is easy to find many many things Obama has lied about.


Barack Obama's birth certificate looks more fake than it does real.
This is TRUE.  Do a little research and it is obvious that Obama's long form birth certificate has been altered if not completely faked.


The truth will come out and most of the current Obama supporters will say, "I never voted for Barack Obama. I knew he was a fool.".  At that point over 80% of Americans will be against Obama and the 48% of us that always knew he was a fool will be laughing at the liars that have chosen to deny that they helped elect this idiot of a President.


Barack Obama will not face the Flag during the National Anthem and will not put his hand over his heart. You do not see the Flag in his press conferences.  He wants to give health care and other benefits to non-citizens.  Face it Obama is anti-America and he is destroying this country.
