9/11 A Big Lie?
Well that’s what Iran’s President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, said on Saturday. Apparently Ahmadinejad 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.
Now a lot of people, include many American’s, have stated before that they thought the 9/11 attacks were really an inside job. I’m not really one of those people, and I think this is really a result of the continuation of a centuries-old conflict that began before any of us were really born.
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 others.
He has also questioned the Sept. 11 death toll of around 3,000, claiming the Americans never published the victims' names. Crazy, right? But on the 2007 anniversary of the attacks, the names of 2,750 victims killed in New York were read aloud at a memorial ceremony.
