A senior Iranian commander says the United States planned the 9/11 terrorist attacks to use them as pretext to invade the energy-rich Middle
“The US, looking for a pretext to invade the Middle East, masterminded the 9/11 incident and pointed an accusing finger at Muslim countries,”
Commander of the Iranian Army Ground Forces Brigadier General Ahmad-Reza Pourdastan said on Saturday.
After all that we ourselves have been through investigating this mess, you just really have to wonder if this could in fact be true. Or partially
true. But even if it isn't true, why would a senior Iranian commander go before the world and say this?
Oh, you mean to increase anti-US government sentiment? There's plenty of that already.
Oh, to increase the already increasing grassroots rumble of dissatisfaction amongst the US citizenry with their government who has spent us into
oblivion, for what? Gee, thanks for the help.
Oh, to increase awareness among the world of just what a hypocritical, warmongering country this is? The Afghans and Iraqis are quite well aware of
this by now.
Maybe just maybe: because it is true.

risk your account over a minor infraction by personally attacking other people. Not even a little bit, or by innuendo.)
