“Donald Trump is conveying interesting versions of urban legends and some actual facts about what followed the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001,” Barrett told Press TV on Sunday.
“Israeli intelligence agents were caught wildly celebrating the airplane crashes and then the explosive destructions of the Twin Towers,” Barrett said, adding that the agents were working in coordination with people already placed on the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)’s terror watch list.
“These dancing Israelis were cheering wildly, flicking cigarette lighters in front of the burning and then exploding Twin Towers and they were then arrested, they were found with thousands of dollars in cash stuffed in their socks,” he added.
After failing lie detector tests, Barrett said, the agents flew back to Israel, where they appeared on TV and boasted that they were sent to New York to “document the event.”
Is it true that Israeli intelligence agents were arrested shortly after 9/11?
The fact that this claim is shared mainly on conspiracy sites make me doubt the claim.
