Al-Qaeda to Ahmadinejad: It’s Our 9/11!

Pages: 1 2

Or as Inspire puts it:

For them, al-Qaeda was a competitor for the hearts and minds of the disenfranchised Muslims around the world. Al-Qaeda… succeeded in what Iran couldn’t. Therefore it was necessary for the Iranians to discredit 9/11 and what better way to do so? Conspiracy theories.

Blast those conspiracy theories! Though its target is Iran, it’s piquant to see Al-Qaeda here—in effect—discomfit the legions of Western nutcases who see Uncle Sam’s hand behind the Twin Towers attack. In one notable example, a book arguing that thesis was a bestseller in France.

It’s hard to imagine, then, a less edifying dispute: between, on the one hand, an arch-terrorist and “president” of a country who affirms to a cleared-out UN chamber the bon-ton belief that the U.S. commits terror against itself; and, on the other, a perpetrator so proud of mass murder that it rushes to reprove him.

Those who assess that Al-Qaeda has been “severely weakened” by the recent elimination of kingpins like Anwar al-Awlaki and Osama Bin Laden himself might also detect a certain anxiety to safeguard old “achievements”; but time will tell whether such optimism is really warranted. It is, though, another of the many ironies here that Ahmadinejad—no less vicious and, as he closes in on nukes, even more dangerous—spills his anti-American bile unmolested in New York while smaller-scale terrorists are hunted down.

    Ahmedinajad is right. Does anyone seriously think muslims would have the intelligence to plan 9/11. No way!!!!. Only clever westerners or jews could do this. No muslims have the brain power. They might have organised a sword attack because that's what their prophet would have ordered. Also they would not have killed the women because they would keep them as "war booty".

      It was planned, and carried out by muslims. Other countries may have facilitated it in some ways but primarily it was Muslims.

    "One thing that comes to mind is the Truthers…" Truthers come in all sizes. Given the tenor of the spat, and given that Al-Qaeda appears to be behind the attack, then FPM's "Iran was involved" thesis collapses as well – perhaps faster than the poorly constructed towers themselves.

    Let's try to remember this in case the administration wants to go to war with Iran on the grounds that they're in league with Al Qaeda.

    Let's be honest here. A-jad,the whacked-out and unpopular mullahs,Al-Qaeda. They're all sick monsters that deserve whatever terrible thing happens to them.
