Heh, had to happen sooner or later. Al-Qaida is claiming that the conspiracy theories about 9/11 being orchestrated by Bush are… a conspiracy theory to make it look like his outfit aren’t to be taken seriously.
“The purpose of this lie is clear — (to suggest) that there are no heroes among the Sunnis who can hurt America as no else did in history. Iranian media snapped up this lie and repeated it,” he said.
The Onion has covered this material previously, so there’s video already. Quite funny!
I read somewhere the other day that Ahmadinejad, President of Iran, was supporting these theories. I guess there’s one pretty odvious hole in his story though…
He appeared to cast doubt on the official version of the attacks, saying the names of those killed had never been published and questioning how the planes had hit the towers of the World Trade Centre in New York.
“An event was created in the name of the attack against the twin towers. We were all sad. It was said that 3,000 people were killed,” Ahmadinejad said.
“But the names of the 3,000 people were never published and nobody was able to respond to the main question, which is how is it possible that with the best radar systems and intelligence networks the planes could crash undetected into the towers.”
I suppose we don’t count reading them out on the anniversary at public events?
