Iran's Ahmadinejad: Sept. 11 attacks a 'big lie'


TEHRAN, Iran — Iran's hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Saturday called the official version of the Sept. 11 attacks a "big lie" used by the U.S.
as an excuse for the war on terror, state media reported.

Ahmadinejad's comments, made during an address to Intelligence Ministry staff, come amid escalating tensions between the West and Tehran over its disputed
nuclear program. They show that Iran has no intention of toning itself
down even with tighter sanctions looming because of its refusal to halt
uranium enrichment.

"September 11 was a big lie and a pretext for the war on terror and a prelude to invading Afghanistan," Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying by state TV. He called the attacks a
"complicated intelligence scenario and act."

The Iranian president has questioned the official U.S. version of the Sept. 11 attacks before, but this is the first time he ventured to label it a
"big lie."

In 2007, New York officials rejected Ahmadinejad's request to visit the World Trade Center site while he was in the city for a U.N. meeting. The president also sparked an uproar when he said
during a lecture in New York that the causes and conditions that led to
the attacks, as well as who orchestrated them, still need to be

At the time, he also told Iranian state TV the attacks were "a result of mismanaging and inhumane managing of the world by the U.S," and that Washington was using Sept. 11 as an excuse to attack

He has also questioned the Sept. 11 death toll of around 3,000, claiming the Americans never published the victims' names.

On the 2007 anniversary of the attacks, the names of 2,750 victims killed in New York were read aloud at a memorial ceremony.

Thoth II, You are right on the mark (once again). Here a note of levity from the pen of Kevin Barrett, Ph.D.:

The lackeys of Zio-American imperialism may be reading Lolita in Tehran...but President Ahmadinejad has better taste. He's engrossed in Truth Jihad: My Epic Struggle Against the 9/11 Big Lie by Kevin Barrett, the world's most notorious Muslim 9/11 truth author and radio host.

"When I called 9/11 a big lie, I got the idea from Dr. Barrett," the Iranian president explained. "This hilarious book rips the pants off the 9/11 conspiracy and exposes its private parts to the whole world. And besides, it is good practicing for my English."

A spokesman for the Iranian Ministry of Culture quickly interrupted and pointed out that Truth Jihad's cover art uses a tile pattern from the Jameh mosque in Yazd, Iran, retouched and translated thanks to Professor Hussein Mollanazar of Tehran--just one of the reasons why this book is a priceless investment whose value will only increase as the official 9/11 big lie and the Zionist regime behind it are gradually wiped off the map effaced from the pages of time.

For a personally autographed copy (while supplies last) send $10 to Kevin Barrett, c/o Khadir Press, 2617 East Washington Ave. , Madison, WI 53704.

One characteristics of Americans that the hawks have exploited over the decades is their difficulty seeing themselves in perspective, as other countries view them. I like these perspectives from other countries, they are very revealing. Consider Jesse Ventura's interview with Castro, Fidel told him it would have been insane for him to kill JFK because the wrath of USA would have come down on Cuba. And if you put yourself in the minds of these other countries for a minute, you can see the wisdom of their insights.
