Tulsi Gabbard Hammers Biden Over Ground Zero Snub: He Wants You To Forget About 9/11, Focus On New Wars
Former congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, a one-time Democrat candidate for President, hammered Joe Biden over his Ground Zero snub on the 22-year anniversary of 9/11.
As reported by the Political Insider, Biden turned the solemn occasion on Monday into an afterthought, squeezing in a brief ceremony at a joint military base in Alaska while his plane, Air Force One, could be refueled on the way home from Vietnam.
In doing so, he became the first sitting President failing to appear on the anniversary of that horrific day at either Ground Zero, the Pentagon, the crash site of United Flight 93, or the White House.
Gabbard, in a scathing video posted to X, slammed the President’s decision not to visit Ground Zero.
“Why isn’t Biden here in NYC at Ground Zero?” she questioned. “Perhaps because he wants the American people to ‘move past’ or forget about this attack, who carried it out [and] why.”
Why isn’t Biden here in NYC at Ground Zero? Perhaps because he wants the American people to “move past” or forget about this attack, who carried it out & why. They’d rather us focus on new, bigger, more lucrative wars. But we are not sheep. We will #NeverForget pic.twitter.com/FEzssu3sfZ

Does Biden Want You To Forget Why There Is A Ground Zero In The First Place?
Would President Biden, much like just about every other President since 9/11, really want you to forget who helped carry out the attacks on 9/11?
Documents declassified by the FBI detailed information about the support provided to two hijackers by U.S.-based Saudi nationals with diplomatic credentials.
I’m here in NYC at the 9/11 Memorial on this 22nd anniversary of the Islamist terrorist attack on our nation. President Biden’s absence here today speaks volumes. Here’s why:https://t.co/MhLBG7yz16

And yet just days prior to 9/11, President Biden was giving the Saudi crown prince what the Associated Press described as a “hearty handshake.”
The royal family has denied any involvement in the worst terrorist attack on American soil, though their lack of support seems highly unlikely.
A heavily redacted document released in 2021 details support such as travel assistance, lodging, and financing that two of the hijackers, Nawaf al Hazmi and Kahlid al Midhdar, received from a man who worked in the Saudi Consulate in Los Angeles, Omar al Bayoumi.
A Biden official, also on the anniversary of 9/11, actually offered praise to Saudi Arabia for their support of an international infrastructure project.
Again, it seems like they want you to forget exactly what happened on that day over two decades ago. “Move on, people. Some people did something, it’s not that big a deal.”
The White House going out of its way to praise Saudi Arabia on 9/11 is … a choice. https://t.co/XLAODvNHOa

Gabbard Wrecks Biden Over Behavior On 9/11
Gabbard, in an op-ed column on Fox News, expanded on why she believes President Biden wants to leave the events of 9/11 in the past. He and his administration “want us to move forward to new, bigger, and more lucrative wars,” she said.
You know, like the war being funded in Ukraine as a means to cover up the Biden family money laundering operations – allegedly.
Or, as Gabbard points out, the real enemies in the eyes of Democrats – parents and patriotic Americans.
“They want us to focus on politically advantageous wars, like the war against parents who simply want to have a say in our children’s education or patriotic Americans who are standing up to protect our freedoms enshrined in our Constitution,” she said.
I think he purposely avoids doing anything patriotic that could bring us together

Gabbard continued by pointing out that the Biden administration has no interest in focusing on the real enemies of America.
“On this solemn anniversary, we hear a lot of platitudes from politicians, but we don’t hear them talking about who carried out the attacks, what their motivation was, and the fact they are continuing their jihad, doing their very best to get their hands on weapons of mass destruction to carry out an attack that would make their attack on 9/11 seem minuscule in comparison,” she wrote.
Gabbard, though not a Republican, recently left the Democrat Party and has showcased rather conservative views in the time since.
In announcing her departure, she blasted her colleagues as being controlled by “warmongers” who stoke anti-white racism and are possessed by “cowardly wokeness.”
I can no longer remain in today’s Democratic Party that is now under the complete control of an elitist cabal of warmongers driven by cowardly wokeness, who divide us by racializing every issue & stoke anti-white racism, actively work to undermine our God-given freedoms, are… pic.twitter.com/oAuTnxZldf
