Al-Qaeda slams Iran 9/11 conspiracy theories

Article in terror organization's English-language magazine blasts Ahmadinejad for spreading 'theory' that 9/11 attacks were carried out by US government in bid to provide pretext to invade Middle East

It's not often that the al-Qaeda terror organization stands by the United States, the "Great Satan". The person who has managed to unite the two enemies in a joint goal is none other than Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has been spreading conspiracy theories on the 9/11 terror offensive. The ABC network's website reported Tuesday night that in the latest issue of the al-Qaeda English-language magazine "Inspire", an author appears to take offense to the "ridiculous" theory repeatedly spread by Ahmadinejad that the 9/11 attacks were actually carried out by the US government in order to provide a pretext to invade the Middle East.

According to the article, "The Iranian government has professed on the tongue of its president Ahmadinejad that it does not believe that al-Qaeda was behind 9/11, but rather the US government. So we may ask the question: Why would Iran ascribe to such a ridiculous belief that stands in the face of all logic and evidence?" The author admits that Iran was the first of the two to use the "Great Satan" as a synonym for the US, but claims that the Islamic Republic sees itself as a rival for al-Qaeda when it comes to anti-Americanism and is jealous of the 9/11 attacks. According to al-Qaeda, Iran continues to deny that Osama bin Laden and his people were responsible for the attacks because doing otherwise would expose their "lip-service jihad" against the US.


Ahmadinejad said in a speech in Tehran two weeks ago, "This incident was a planned and complex game aimed at influencing the human race as an excuse to occupy Iraq and Afghanistan." The article goes on to say that "for them, al-Qaeda was a competitor for the hearts and minds of the disenfranchised Muslims around the world. Al Qaeda... succeeded in what Iran couldn't. Therefore it was necessary for the Iranians to discredit 9/11 and what better way to do so? Conspiracy theories."

The magazine also includes a short article allegedly written by the Osama bin Laden before his death at the hands of US Navy SEALs in early May in which the al-Qaeda advises his fighters not to let American soldiers "become great in your eyes." In addition, al-Qaeda includes at the end of the magazine a solicitation for contributors to the magazine "with any skills – be it writing, research, editing, or advice."
