9/11 Truther Rosie O’Donnell blames ISIS on U.S. (Video)

9/11 Truther Rosie O’Donnell blames ISIS on U.S.	(Video)

Once a Truther, always a Truther. Despite her recent pledge upon returning to “The View” to become “more objective” in her political comments, Rosie O’Donnell was her crazy old self on Tuesday. Appearing on “This Is ABC” with Nicole Wallace, O’Donnell spouted the same old conspiracy theories, this time doubling down on her attack on the homeland, blaming the U.S. for the creation of the terrorist group ISIS:

O’Donnell: [D]on’t you think the reason ISIS was created was because when Saudi hijackers attacked us, we invaded a different country that had nothing to do with it? That would incite people to radicalize, right? Why is it that taking the troops out that caused it?

Notice that when she utters the phrase “Saudi hijackers,” she frames it with imaginary quotation marks using her fingers. In other words, she is still skeptical that fire can melt steel. In fact when asked point blank in August in a tweet by Scott Whitlock of NewsBusters whether she was still a “Truther,” she tweeted back confirmation:

O’ Donnell has long maintained that the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon were an inside job, perpetrated by then-president George W. Bush and then-New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani.
