Official: Osama Bin Laden NOT the mastermind of 9/11

Just in time for the election spin, Osama Bin Laden has been downgraded from 'mastermind' of 9/11 to just an influence.

I guess that means that invading 2 countries to find him and his associates requires some historical revisionism.

In a press conference today, a reporter asked White House Press Secretary Dana Perino about the administration’s ongoing efforts to find Osama bin Laden, calling him the “mastermind” of 9/11. Perino interrupted the reporter, claiming bin Laden was not the true “mastermind” of the attacks:
... Quote:
Q But Osama bin Laden is the one that — you keep talking about his lieutenants, and, yes, they are very important, but Osama bin Laden was the mastermind of 9/11 –

PERINO: No, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was the mastermind of 9/11, and he’s sitting in jail right now.


Perino seems to be attempting to justify the White House’s failure to catch bin Laden by suggesting he was not the “mastermind.” This negates a potential 'failure' accusation that could be leveled at the current administration.

But in September 2006, former press secretary Tony Snow stated:
... Quote:
Osama bin Laden, mastermind of September 11th, the person that many people talk about and still have concerns about, calls this fight, the fight in Iraq, “the third world war.
