Iran says U.S., Israel ordered September 11 attacks

More Fuel for the Conspiracy Nuts… From Iran Focus 

Tehran, Iran, Sep. 06 – The Supreme Commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps accused the Bush Administration and the Israeli security service Mossad of ordering the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York and Washington, DC.

“The events of September 11 were ordered by U.S. [officials] and Mossad so that they could carry out their strategy of pre-emption and warmongering and unipolarisation in order to dominate the Middle East”, Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi told military commanders on Tuesday. His comments were reported by the state-run news agency ISNA.

General Safavi said that Iran was the leading force of the “Islamic world”. “The geographic heart of the Islamic world is in Mecca and Medina. But, the political heart of the Islamic world is in the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Supreme Leader [Ayatollah Ali Khamenei] is the flag-bearer of the front of Islamic awakening and the fronts of the awakening of third world nations”, he said.

So is this what Ahmadinejad wants to speak about at the UN General Assembly??  

Ahmadinejad Declares Intent To Speak at U.N. 

Diplomats at the United Nations were sent into disarray yesterday when President Ahmadinejad of Iran declared that he intended to attend the General Assembly of the world body on September 19 and to debate his country’s nuclear program with President Bush, who is due to address the Assembly that day.

However, it was far from clear whether the Iranian president was serious in his suggestion or whether he was merely tweaking the nose of his American opponents. His intention to visit New York was reported by the Islamic Republic News Agency, which quoted the Presidential Office Media Department reporting him as saying, “We are ready for a debate with the Americans at the U.N. General Assembly” and that “the American side can even take part in the debate side by side with his advisors, and as a full team, if they wish so.” Mr. Ahmadinejad last visited the United Nations last year.

President Bush is to speak at the UN the same day… Personally Rather than delivering a speech he should be delivering an eviction notice… Besides the UN building would make great Condos after extensive cleaning.

  1. In a strange way, some people though would believe it.

    But there is a wide range of reports claims and statements clearly showing al qaeda did it.

    On my part – after reading your blog- I looked up some old files and found a section of interviews from stories I had worked on here in Asia that pretty much put the ‘credit’ if you will on Al Qaeda. According to just some of the news reports I worked on back then.

    A few days prior ro 9-11 a set of Hostages of a Al Qaeda allied group holding Filipino’s and Americans Hostage here in the Philippines. Were asked about 9-11, one recalled, days before 9-11 the same group holding them got very agitated because they were visited by their middle eastern supporters and asked to issue a statement claiming responsibility for ‘something big’ for Al Qaeda in the days ahead.

    The report goes, the Abu Sayyaf leaders refused, fearing a direct US air strike or invasion, they had already been facing increased US backed pressure from the Philippine Military then- even at that time- prior to 9-11, and only wanted to ‘cash in’ on the hostages they had.

    The ASG refused but – if I remember correctly from the interviews and notes; both from released hostages, interviews of ASG members, and, also from captured extremists – the emissaries were upset with the bunch, and, later the ASG to appease them- did issue some sort of statement in support or praise of the 9-11 operation.

    But it was not the statement they had been asked to issue.

    The ASG, and you can look this up, was funded and supported at it’s early stages by Kalahid Shiek Mohamad. Some aspects of a plan called Oplan Bojinka, eventually became the 9-11 plot.

    So, just based on what I covered and also reported first hand, this Iranian statement is fueled by wild speculation or more likely exposes the rift between Sunni and Shiite groups even over things like 9-11.

    Which is nothing new. See the ‘success’ of 9-11, to the Arab street or aupporters was in their eyes- something – no other group had done before- even it in reality was nothing more than what it was – a group of crazed extremist zealots pulling off a hijacking and suicide on orders of al qaeda.

    That is an affront to the Mullahs in Iran, who don’t like Al Qaeda – for their own power struggle over extremism and the those who support those kinds of groups. It takes away from the groups they back – Like Hamas and Hezbollah.

    So aside from bashing the US and Israel, there is something being done here by the Iranian’s to ‘dis’ laden ‘et al’, who by the way do not belong to the same sect of islam as al qaeda’s mostly Sunni wahabists, So this, also is a way for them to bestow distrust in Osama and his bunch. By linking that groups ‘claim to terror fame’ to the CIA and Mossad.

    The simple clear example is what happened in recently Lebanon, no al qaeda bunch jumped in to help – because it was a Hezbollah (Shiite) group fighting versus Israel. For all the talk of Unity they have – they are as devided as many branches of other faiths.

    So for the Iranians, (who back Hezbollah) in a strange sort of way- the claim of CIA and Israel plot is another way to taint Osama and al qaeda’s claims, and, at the same time spreads more disinformation versus the US and Israel.

    Complicated as it sounds- those groups have their own rivalries.
    even their own ‘terror turf fights’. Much like Political groups rival for funding and donations for the causes they fight for.
    These groups also do thier own mudslinging in strange ways.

    Strange as it sounds.

  2. Mike thank you for your detailed and thoughtful comment. Unfortunately many people incorrectly view Al-Qaeda as one entity, when in fact it is cooperation of many entities with similar ideologies. Abu Sayeff, Jemaah Islamiyah, and the Lashkar Group in Pakistan to name just a few. There is a power struggle within Islam itself, and the desire of each of these factions is not the destruction of Israel or the US, but to unite Islam under their perverted leadership. They use the conflict with Israel and the US a a means to ralley support to their cause, and to be dominant voice and force within the Muslim world.

    Again thank you for your comment.

    Darrell
