Bob Beckel outraged co-host Dana Perino on Friday’s edition of “The Five” by making a 9/11 “truther” remark in defense of Joe Biden.
Stuck for a defense of Biden’s debate lie that the White House wasn’t told that the consulate in Benghazi, Libya, needed more security, Beckel went for the “Blame Bush” defense.

“They didn’t hold people … intelligence committees for 9/11, their failure to tell people what was going to happen, because it could have been stopped if they had,” Beckel mumbled.
“That’s outrageous and you should take it back,” Perino exclaimed.

@danaperino Beckel has completely lost it. He is basically blaming the Bush admin for 9/11. he has become a truther, plain and simple.

WOW, Bob Beckel stoops to conspiracy theory & blames Bush admin for the attacks of 9/11/01. Deflecting Responsibility IS the Left Strategy

Beckel is venturing into truther territory. More unhinged as Obama inches closer to defeat.

@davidlimbaugh When Dana came back from that last segment she looked like she’d been crying. What Beckel said about 9/11 was diabolical.

Fox, you must realize by now that you have a huge intelligence failure on “The Five.” You might want to do something to stop it before someone gets hurt.
