It is being reported today that an Iranian General within the Revolutionary Guard planned with the 2nd in command of al Qaeda to allow members of the 9/11 attack to pass through Iran.
 



Reuters
DUBAI (Reuters) - An Iranian general collaborated with al Qaeda to arrange the transit through Iran of nine of the September 11 hijackers, the Arabic newspaper Asharq al-Awsat reported on Monday.

"A general in the apparatus (Revolutionary Guard) coordinated with the number two man in al Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahri, to provide 'safe passage' to around nine of those who carried out the attacks," the London-based paper said.

It cited as its source an official in the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, and said Zawahri, who requested the help, had links with the general going back to the early 1990s.

If this turns out to be true, the ramifications could be huge, both for the General in question and for Iran as a whole.

Keep in mind that the CIA has already stated that the men passed through Iran, but now we seem to find out that they didn't simply walk though... it was a co-ordinated movement conducted by an Iranian General and and #2 in al Qaeda!

- on the other hand it could be as 'true' as the presentation by Powell etc etc pre the Iraqi war.

That seemed convincing at the time too.

What do you mean 'conditioning the public'?

bah... what about Gen. Ahmad, of the ISI, funding al-qaeda? what about the saudi's funding and helping, hell, BEING al-qaeda? now we're finger pointing at iran. well, im sure iran had its role to play in 9/11. but it's small compared to other countries, which we're doing little about.

I agree with you, but there has to be some kind of conditioning going on. Everything lately has been about Iran.

I haven't seen any definitive proof of the ISI funding Al Qaeda, but I never really looked hard. What I can say is that because most of the terrorists were Saudis doesn't mean the government was responsible, although maybe it could arguably be sort of responsible in its promotion and exportation of Wahabi-ism. The Saudi government began to crack down on terrorism within its boarders in 2003, and the Saudi government has itself come under attack recently.

Here comes the set up....

Don't fall for this disinfo crap.

You were lied to about Iraq. Only fools would rush into this deception.

By the way, were those 9 'hijackers' the ones that turned up alive after 9-11?

THis is getting old.
I bet after Iran we will claim that Syria has all the WMD that we didnt find in Iraq. Then there will probably be a link there between them and say ....
France.
This outlaw rogue government that we call a deMOCKracy reminds me more of Hitlers regime daily.
God help us, when will it all end???

Hopefully when the people vote his lying arse out of office. I just hope Americans have the same courage and smarts that Spain's voters had after they were bombed. Another attack here is probably imminent. BushCo is desperate to win, no matter what.

Evidently you still believe in the deMOCKracy?

And who pray-tell shall we vote for? Skull or Bones?
What about Nader? He appears to be an advocate of the U.N. from my limited research.
At any rate I believe the 'choice' is little more than an illusion.

Unfortunately we're living in a Skull & Bones Plutocracy. I'm not advocating for Bush or Kerry. They both seem to be committed to the same strategy in Iraq, which is unfortunate.

Something to consider: There are two sources to confirm this story: The Iranian government and the supposed hijackers. The Iranian government denies the validity of it and the US government claims these hijackers are dead. It seems to be more Chalabi-esque Bu#. It's no secret BushCo. has been wanting to attack Iran, too. This is just more of their deception.

Let's just say they did pass through Iran, how the hell is Iran (or any government of that size) supposed to know about EVERY single person crossing the border? The US government damn sure can't control our own illegals coming in and out.

Not a totally different prospect, but we've already gone on about a possible war in Iran, and the consequences, on another thread...

Seems that the "rhetoric" stage just got ratchetted up a notch...probably not a good idea as we near election day....

While the US could neutralize Iran's defenses fairly quickly (yes, even the rusty old nukes from Russia), we still don't have the land forces it would take to hold the country or suppress the militant opposition and foreign terrorists that would quickly pop up as well (as in Iraq), so no, attacking Iran at this time (while Iraq and Afghanistan are still ongoing) is not a good option...not to mention the political fallout, which would be akin to political suicide in the mideast....

This is really Deja Vu. Seems they are trying to build a case to go into Iran. It started before the invasion of Iraq, and now its building. They are just now discovering a link to Iran? By that logic, Pakistan should have been on the invade list given the support and ties to the Taliban and Al Quada

The commission investigating the September 11, 2001, attacks has concluded that Osama bin Laden's terrorist network had long-running contacts with Iran




Intelligence indicates the persistence of contacts between Iranian security officials and senior al-Qaeda figures after Bin Laden's return to Afghanistan.

Khallad (Sheikh Muhammad) has said that Iran made a concerted effort to strengthen relations with al-Qaeda after the October 2000 attack on the USS Cole, but was rebuffed because Bin Laden did not want to alienate his supporters in Saudi Arabia.

In October 2000 a senior operative of Hizballah visited Saudi Arabia to coordinate activities there. He also planned to assist individuals in Saudi Arabia in traveling to Iran during November. In mid-November [2000] we believe three of the future muscle hijackers...all of whom had obtained their U.S. visas in late October, traveled in a group from Saudi Arabia to Beirut and then onward to Iran.

An associate of a senior Hizballah operative was on the same flight that took the future hijackers to Iran. Hizballah officials in Beirut and Iran were expecting the arrival of a group during the same period.

In sum, there is strong evidence that Iran facilitated the transit of al-Qaeda members into and out of Afghanistan before 9/11, and that some of these were future 9/11 hijackers. There is also circumstantial evidence that senior Hizballah operatives were closely tracking the travel of some of these future muscle hijackers into Iran in November 2000.



National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States

Iran had links to Hizballah, al-Qaeda, allowed some of the Sept. 11 hijackers to transit, and is today harboring al-Qaeda leaders - AND is likely to achieve a nuclear capability in three years.
