Willie Nelson doubts official explanation for 9/11
AUSTIN — Texas icon Willie Nelson said on a nationally syndicated radio show that he questions the official story of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in New York City.
"I certainly do," Nelson said Monday when asked by talk-show host Alex Jones.
"I saw those towers fall and I've seen an implosion in Las Vegas, there's too much similarities between the two. And I saw the building fall that didn't get hit by nothing," the singer-songwriter said. "So, how naive are we, you know, what do they think we'll go for?"
On Sept. 11, 2001, 19 men hijacked planes, crashing them into each of the World Trade Center's twin towers in New York City, the Pentagon and a Pennsylvania field.
Nelson, 74, said that if he were president, he would "stop the damn war, it's just that simple."
He said he doesn't why if Saudi Arabians "hit us in New York and we go jump on Afghanistan."
Nelson's publicist would not comment on the remarks.
