Ok so the headline is over the top, but you have to admit that statements made by Ahmanutjob were more over the top :). This story is from the BBC News, and basically it is stating that Al Qaeda have slapped Ahmanutjob on the wrist for spreading conspiracy theories regarding the incident on 11/9/2001.
Rational people who saw what took place know that the planes crashed into the twin towers of the World Trade Centre and that the fire from the crash etc brought the towers down. However, there are a number of irrational people, including the left wing Michael Moore, and the yukky RP, who insist upon creating conspiracy theories about what took place. Some of these nut jobs actually believe that explosives were used and that this was a Bush plot. It is just too bad that some of the things that they rely upon go back to the 1960s when the Democrats were in the White House!!
Al Qaeda have always claimed responsibility for what took place. The men who participated were Al Qaeda operatives, plus Anwar Al-Awlaki the fugutive American citizen now living in Yemen, and the person also responsible for encouraging the man who did the Ft. Hood massacre, was an imam in the Virginia mosque where some of these men went to “worship”, rather listen to his rhetoric.
Now, 10 years later Ahmanutjob turns up in New York and gives a speech where he makes conspiracy theory claims and Al Qaeda are NOT HAPPY. Thus, they have spoken out in the Online magazine called “Inspire” against Ahmanutjob and his conspiracy theories:
Inspire, an al-Qaeda-linked online magazine, described Mr Ahmadinejad’s controversial speech to the United Nations last week as “ridiculous”.
The Iranian leader said he believed the World Trade Center towers could not have been brought down by aircraft.
The article said such a belief “stands in the face of all logic and evidence”.
When looking at the rhetoric that is coming from the leadership behind Inspire (most likely al-Awlaki is responsible) it is obvious that there is no love lost between Iran and Al Qaeda. They seem to be on a different side to each other. This, I suspect is due to Iran being dominated by Shia, and Al Qaeda being dominated by Sunni. It might also explain why Iraq continues to be torn apart because the Shia want control, but Al Qaeda has been interfering on behalf of the Sunni.
