It looks like President Donald Trump isn't going to keep his word.

Back in February 2016, while on the campaign trail, Trump gave us kooky 9/11 truthers a ray of hope when he told his audience that, if he won, "You will find out who really knocked down the World Trade Center. It wasn't the Iraqis. You may find it's the Saudis."

His words clearly implied what several million people, including myself, had come to believe; that there were masterminds behind the attacks other than Osama bin Laden and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

Trump has now been in office for nearly eight months; more than enough time to learn who these masterminds were and inform us as to their identity and motives. But we haven't heard a peep.

It could well be that Trump was just blowing hot air when he made that promise. Or maybe he did intend to determine the truth and share it, but thought better of it once the real rulers of America let him know the score. Was he perhaps treated to a private showing of the Zapruder film?

In any case, he's failed to keep his word — something we should all keep in mind whenever he talks about any major issue.
