So the New York Times decides to fact-check Mike Pence, and gets it completely wrong:

In a series of tweets on Friday defending President Trump’s decision to authorize the drone strike that killed Iran’s top intelligence commander, Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani, Vice President Mike Pence reeled off a list of some of General Suleimani’s most notorious attacks and machinations. Mr. Pence described “an evil man” who had threatened American national security interests for decades.

In one of his tweets, Mr. Pence claimed that General Suleimani helped 10 of the men who would go on to carry out the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks cross through Iran and enter Afghanistan. That does not match established historical accounts of General Suleimani or public United States intelligence about the hijackers.

Of course the “public record” doesn’t back him. Aren’t you the “public record”, New York Slimes?

National Review looks at the situation and says:

“Really, it’s remarkable that so many journalists are seemingly unaware that the 9/11 Commission Report found that 8 to 10 hijackers — of 19, not twelve — traveled through Iran to Afghanistan with the help of the Islamic Republic.”

The fact of the matter is that if it’s terrorism in the middle East, Iran is up to its eyeballs in it, and that’s always been the situation since day one back in the days of Jimmy Carter. If the little paragraph factory in Queens was anything better than a left-wing propaganda rag, they’d have been reporting on this for the last 40 years, as other news outlets have done.
