Who speaks up for Chelsea?
Chelsea is lucky to be alive, we learn from a new political biography of Hillary Clinton.
Chelsea often stopped for coffee in the shadow of the twin towers in lower Manhattan, but on 9/11 didn't proceed quite that far, according to Her Way by Jeff Gerth and Don van Natta. Still, the young woman was jostled by the crowd fleeing the disaster zone as she ran south toward danger in search of a pay phone to call her mother in Washington. (Dad was in Australia on business.)
It's also clear from the book that immediately after the attacks Hillary seemed to have no inkling that maybe not everything was on the up and up -- though many experts expressed skepticism that the towers could have fallen as claimed.
By now however, both she and Bill ought to be well aware that 9/11 was an inside job and that the killers cared nothing about Chelsea's fate. Chelsea doesn't seem to have been one of those in the know who were tipped to stay out of lower Manhattan that day.
So why doesn't Hillary express outrage? Maybe it's because she and Bill are part of the "politically correct" faction of the left wing that has agreed not to make an issue of the treason conspiracy.
Either that or the senator is in some kind of deep denial, with double-crossing aides keeping her so roped off from reality that she lacks the competence to be a senator, let alone a president.
And, where is Bill's voice here? His daughter could easily have been killed that day, but he mustn't say anything that might trouble the power elite and mess up Hillary's chances, I suppose.
He's almost surely not in denial about 9/11. Nobody ever claimed he was stupid. He just won't tackle these people.
