Did people catch 60 Mins. 911Truth moment!?

Ahmadinejad made mincemeat of Scott Pelley, and closed with 911 Truth!! Here are two links to the interview, not all of which, especially the 911 T part, made it on air. I would be surprised if it is still on the site!! Check out Pelley's highlighted remark below!! His leading questions sounded very Faux News-like!!



the last page of the interview transcript~~

(CBS) PELLEY: One last thing. So important for the American people to understand. When your airplane approaches Manhattan this week, you will look out the window and you will see that the World Trade Center is gone. Many Americans, Mr. President, to be frank, believe that you look out that window and you say to yourself, "Good. Somebody got 'em." They believe our countries are enemies.

AHMADEINEJAD: Well, you shouldn't speak on behalf of the American people. I can speak on behalf of the Iranian people, but you cannot speak on behalf of the American people. Why do you insist on doing that? Why do you not allow the American people to speak for themselves? Why? Let them speak for themselves. The people gathered around the White House a couple of days ago. They spoke whatever was in their hearts and minds. Are they not American citizens? Hundreds of thousands of people have rallied against the war. Are they not citizens? Our government at the time expressed its condemnation. We issued an official communiqué condemning that incident. How can you, in your mind, accuse and condemn others? Well, if an Iranian person for that matter had done the same thing, it would have been shameful, and it would not have been fair. So, again, this is not fair. Maybe this is your point of view or also perhaps your editor's point of view. And you are saying that the American people are saying these things. The American people still don't know who was behind the bombing of the Twin Towers. Many books in the U.S. have been written about the incident., and there are questions circling in your society. Once you go back, go to the streets, ask the local people who was behind this, what were the reason for that? And, again, I fail to see why you continually say “the American people.“ I have the latest surveys. Eighty percent of the American citizens say that the American government knew about the attack beforehand. They had information.

PELLEY: You don't believe that, sir.

AHMADEINEJAD: I'm not making a judgment here, mind you. I'm not being judgmental. That's not important for me. What is important for me is to find out why this happened. We can take a course of action which ensures this never happens. Why should we manage the world like this? It's very possible for us all to be friends, for the world to be in peace, and for the family of man to love one another and to not hate one another. So who propagates these ideas, I ask you. We should all be friends. We should deal fairly with one another, respect one another. Nations do not have any problems when it comes to interacting with one another. Unethical politicians make war. Nations don't make war. We're saying that you should allow our nations to be friends with one another. We condemned that incident right there and then. Why should many innocent people be killed? For what reason? Well, behind this building there is another building, a building which in 1360 Iranian calendar, some 25 years ago, the Iranian president and the prime minister in the office, they were blown up by terrorists, a bomb planted by terrorists. And the president and the prime minister burned in that bomb, by that bomb. And, again, this is very regrettable that those terrorists, which were behind that bombing and other assassinations in this country, can freely have access to American officials are being protected by the American Army in Iraq. So this country is a victim of terrorism throughout its history. So you cannot produce even one document, a single document, about terrorist action on the part of the Iranian government or Iranian officials. We are very clear in our position. We say that we spiritually support the right of the Palestinian people and also independence for Iraq. We have nothing to hide. We are very much opposed to the Iraqi occupation. Again, we have nothing to hide. It's very regrettable that many thousands of people were killed in the Twin Tower incident. We have announced time and again. And what we are asking is can we do something that ensures this never happens? And the answer is "yes." We can do that, providing a number of parties do not establish terrorist organizations and set them off on nations. We know who is behind terrorist organizations. You know full well who is behind a number of terrorist organizations around my part of the world, that is. Who provided them with logistical support, political support? It's a very well-known fact they have made and created these terrorist organizations themselves.

PELLEY: Who, sir?

AHMADINEJAD: It's very clear. Very clear.

PELLEY: Make it clearer. Name the names.

AHMADEINEJAD: I don't want to name names. I don't want to name names. But the terrorist organizations in Afghanistan, who is behind them? And what intelligence organization belonging to what country is behind them? This is very clear.

PELLEY: Shall I say CIA and the United States? Will that . . .

AHMADEINEJAD: Well, maybe you know something that . . . The relations and the developments in this part of the world are somewhat clear. I don't want to say something which would agitate and fan the flames of the situation. What I'm saying that this is shameful. My country is a great victim of terrorism. We very much oppose terrorism. As I said, we oppose terrorism. Why? Why should innocent people be killed? For what reason? We are saying that each and every person should be respected regardless of their color, creed, what country they come from, what language they speak. We're all fellow human beings. We should be respected. Why some parties ask more than their fair share? Why do they insult nations? They shouldn't do that. This is not right.

PELLEY: Would you reestablish . . .

AHMADEINEJAD: If I may. Who created secret prisons in Europe? You don't know that? Did Iran establish those prisons? This one is very clear and the documents have been revealed. Why are they creating secret prisons? If the law provides the possibility to establish these prisons, go ahead. Why this skullduggery? So this is, again, very clear.

PELLEY: Would you reestablish diplomatic relations with the United States? Is that something you want? Something you would do right away?

AHMADINEJAD: Well, our foreign policy is a policy which says that we should have relations with all countries and nations. Before the revolution, this country was much damaged by American policy. Our late imam said that we will not have relations with two countries: one, the apartheid regime of South Africa; the other, the Zionist regime. We like to have relations with all countries. The American administration cut off relations themselves unilaterally. The Carter administration perhaps they were thinking that this would be to their benefit. But this didn't happen. We would like to have relations with all countries based on mutual respect. This is the very basis of our foreign policy. I think that we are done.

PELLEY: You have been generous with your time, Mr. President. Thank you for your time very much.


Damn Bro.

I would have never known this occurred if it wasn't for your handiwork here. Great find. I watched the 60 minutes interview with interest and I saw his speech today at Columbia University, but I never read this type of thing. This guy talks pretty straight. I'm sure he has his flaws like anyone, but I'm glad you posted this. I was disappointed he didn't get into the international views of 9/11, but I guess my anger should be now directed at 60 minutes who chose not to air this segment. Anyway. Great find and post. Thanks.

Thanks! I was just pissed hearing the lemming Pelley spout...

...GOP talking points!! In trying to make a complaint on the CBS site, I found the transcript, and it had a bunch of material that didn't make it on air.

Ahmad. does go through some weird contortions, but I bet they could be explained away by cultural idiosyncracies...not that the GOP would ever give credence to that.

I noted Pelley's bizarre questions wrapped in assertions, and he did sound like he was spewing GOP talking points...

The World Trade Center site is the most sensitive place in the American heart, and you must have known that visiting there would be insulting to many, many Americans.

the American people, sir, believe that your country is a terrorist nation, exporting terrorism in the world

it is an established fact now that Iranian bombs and Iranian know-how are killing Americans in Iraq. You have American blood on your hands. Why?

The American Army has captured Iranian missiles in Iraq. The critical elements of the explosively formed penetrator bombs that are killing so many people are coming from Iran. There's no doubt about that anymore. The denials are no longer credible, sir.

Many Americans believe that you have American blood on your hands. Are you saying that it is not the policy of this government to send weapons into Iraq? Sir, forgive me, you're smiling, but this is a very serious matter to America.

Mr. President, you must have rejoiced more than anyone when Saddam Hussein fell. You owe President Bush. This is one of the best things that's ever happened to your country.

Transparent? Sir, it's been hidden for more than 15 years. You've been operating a secret nuclear program. It's nothing if it's not secret.

our two countries may very well be walking down the road to war. How do you convince President Bush, how do you convince other nations in the West . . . .

AHMADINEJAD: What two parties are walking towards war?

PELLEY: Iran, the United States, Western countries. France this week . . . .

AHMADINEJAD: Who says that?

PELLEY: France this week said that war might be indicated. How do you convince these Western powers that you are not pursuing a bomb?

You can show the world today that you are not pursuing a bomb. All you have to do is give the order. Open your nuclear facilities. Let the United Nations inspectors in there today and prove that there is no bomb program. Why not take that course?

People say that you're just trying to gather as much highly-enriched uranium as you possibly can.

Mr. Bush is, without question, a very religious man, for example, as you are.

I asked President Bush what he would say to you if he were sitting in this chair. And he told me, quote, speaking to you, that you've made terrible choices for your people. You've isolated your nation. You've taken a nation of proud and honorable people and made your country the pariah of the world.

Why does your government confiscate your people's satellite dishes? What is it that you don't want your people to see?
But as you well know, they are confiscated from time to time in sweeps in the country. And I wonder what it is that you don't want your people to see.

Will you, in this interview tonight, rule out the possibility of a nuclear test of an Iranian weapon during your presidency?

If sanctions do occur, if another round of sanctions occur, you will continue to enrich uranium behind closed doors, I take it.

Would an attack on your nuclear sites, in your opinion, give you leave to attack U.S. forces in the region or the U.S. mainland?

you will look out the window and you will see that the World Trade Center is gone. Many Americans, Mr. President, to be frank, believe that you look out that window and you say to yourself, "Good. Somebody got 'em." They believe our countries are enemies.

He referenced 9/11 Truth at Columbia as well


Tense Ahmadinejad questions 9/11, Holocaust after blistering reception at Columbia

NEW YORK (AP) — Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been taken to task over his country's human-rights record and foreign policy — not to mention his statements denying the Holocaust and calling for the disappearance of Israel.

During a forum at Columbia University that was at times tense, Ahmadinejad tried to shrug off what he called “insults” as he questioned the official version of the September 11th attacks and defended the right to cast doubt on the Holocaust.

Before he spoke, Columbia's president accused the hard-line leader of behaving like “a petty and cruel dictator.”

During a question and answer session, a tense Ahmadinejad was pressed specifically about punishment of homosexuals, but said Iran doesn't have homosexuals like the U.S.

This proves how controlled & corrupted the mainstream media is!

What blatant censorship! Also, that Scott Pelley seems like a CIA operative from Operation Mockingbird.

Furthermore, the mainstream media continue bashing Iran & helping the NWO lead us into yet another illegal & immoral war!!!

Ahmenidijad Holocaust Denial

I keep hearing about his views on holocaust denial...but I can't find any clips or anything were I can see what he said for myself...cause you know the MSM can't be trusted. It seems he is a straight shooter like you said (sans the gay denial), so I would like to hear it the way it happened...and hopefully be translated from Farci to English.

Somebody hook a brother up.

This article correctly translates what Ahmadeinjad actually said


Natorei Karta: Ahmadinejad man of peace- The Jerusalem Post


Natorei Karta: Ahmadinejad man of peace- The Jerusalem Post
Sept 25

Natorei Karta spokesman Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss on Tuesday called Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad "an advocate of peace," prior to the group's meeting with the controversial leader in New York.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, left, shakes hands with anti-Zionism Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss, at the start of his meeting with participants of a conference on the Holocaust.

Weiss said in a statement that "this will be the third time we're meeting with [Ahmadinejad]. … Every time, we stressed to the Iranian leadership that despite … the declarations by Jews who don't understand the essence of the matter, we have found the Iranian people and their leaders friendly and respectful."
He added that Natorei Karta members believed Ahmadinejad was a very religious man who was dedicated to world peace based on mutual respect and dialogue.
Regarding Israel's relations with Iran, Weiss said that "Judaism seeks peace. Unfortunately, many Jews who are influenced by Zionism - a philosophy less than 100 years old - feel that the proper response to their enemies, be they real or imagined, is aggression. They call for violence and, to our great misfortune, try to drag other nations into war."
Weiss expressed chagrin that few world officials had tried to talk with Ahmadinejad or to follow the real opinion of Iranian Jews, who, he said, live peacefully in the country.
"We want to meet with the man who has proven again and again that he is interested in the welfare of the Iranian Jewish community and that he has a deep respect for the Jewish world ... The Zionist attempt to isolate this man and his people is immoral and tragic," he said.
Ahmadinejad's visit to New York as part of the UN General Assembly has garnered harsh criticism from Jewish groups due to his frequent calls to "wipe Israel off the map."

Show "I wish he'd stop with the Holocaust denials and stick with 9/11." by nickaz

Please quote where he does

Please quote where he does this for me please... I read Both parts of the transcripts after reading your comment, and couldn't find it. Otherwise you are putting false words into his mouth at a time when the war drums are beating. Not wise.
The 9/11 Truth B-Team

I keep hearing this too, and we need to find out why

Several places this clip is posted it's done like


Google "Ahmadinejad Questions 9/11, Holocaust". That title is EVERYWHERE. And if the transcript doesn't support it, that smells like a deliberate smear.

Reminds me a bit of what Leland Lehrman tried that got him banned from Truthaction and a place of dishonor here: http://truthaction.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2290

I predict someone's working overtime to try and make this Holocaust shite stick.

Impeachment. Accountability. A better world.

The right to make historic inquiries

Not denial. Why should an important historical event not be open for scientific inquiry? That is what I he said.

For example

As posted by Big_D

"The ancient Greek philosopher Socrates taught his students that the pursuit of truth can only begin once they start to question and analyze every belief that they ever held dear. If a certain belief passes the tests of evidence, deduction, and logic, it should be kept. If it doesn't, the belief should not only be discarded, but the thinker must also then question why he was led to believe the erroneous information in the first place and for what purpose..."

Gee, I knew there was an

Gee, I knew there was an upside to the Third Reich we just weren't seeing.

I guess if they put swimming pools and theatres in those FEMA camps, and they don't kill us en masse, they won't seem so bad.

It's strange that we blog about the atrocities that happened and may happen still here in the U.S., but some are dedicated to making sure the Nazis get their fair shake in history.

I agree that talking about it is always good, and I don't know everything about it, but I also see agendas.

"It's not a gang - it's a social club."

Best line of the bunch for me...

AHMADEINEJAD: Well, thank you for that. You are like a CIA investigator. And you are . . .

PELLEY: I am just a reporter. I am a simple, average American reporter.
The 9/11 Truth B-Team

He may be a bit nutty on some issues

but he's no fool.

That was the best line of the interview.

One of the most pathetic things I have seen in my life...

What I wrote to CBS...

The hack job interview by Scott Pelley was disgraceful and embarrassing to the entire nation. The sheer audacity and utter idiotically aggressive contempt he spat the usual inane Bush talking points to the Iranian president was one of the most vile attempts at propaganda I have ever seen in my life.

Any genuine human being who pays attention to the world and where we as a species is headed, weeped for what you did and continue to NOT do.

Which was stoke the fires of War... and fill your greedy bellies.

Cannibals ...enjoy your goddamn feast.

Everyday that goes by I break my arm patting myself on the back for canceling my Cable TV subscription...

It is so worthless...

Helluva job, Tryptamine!!

Thanks for jumping on it!! Do you have the email addresses you used handy? That would be helpful if people were disgusted with Pelley's blatant partisanship...


My pleasure...

I don't know how a thinking person could not be disgusted... the guy (pelly) was seething contempt... Watching that online today.. after watching how they treated him at Columbia today... couple that with anyone who has payed attention to the last 5 years... The drum beats to attack Iran have never been louder.. or dumber

I just can't stand it anymore..

While people are free to believe the Government officials of Iran, US, Russia, France, UK. etc.. at their own risk.

Our people do nothing but expose their own hypocrisy when they ask this guy questions.. and he answers as honestly as I have ever heard any leader answer a question... Granted he is long winded.. but the guy has quite an intellectual mind .. I recognize and respect it... but the dumb fucks over here want three and two letter answers to everything...

Idocrisy in the flesh.. right now!

Anyway.. I tend to ramble too.. so if you would like to email those Sonofabtich bastards at CBS.. (not that they give a shit)

Watch your back..

I couldn't agree more!What

I couldn't agree more!

What a great man Ahmadinejad is, and what zero's are Bush&co and this Pelly shill .

"The amercian people this, the amercian people that"
Shut up speaking for the American people and aim your hard hitting CIA-style questions
to US officials to get a REAL 911 investigation!

Pelly a reporter?? Government SHILL and useful idiot defines what I SEE.
(well paid probably) makes me sick...

Also, again this warmongering, France said a war might be...
what the f..k said France, this Sarkozy zionist shill who's only there since a few months?

Ahmadinejad said: "Nations don't make war, their corrupt governments do " SO DAMN TRUE
Thank you.

Why can someone like this narcistic Sarkozy (he once said that he would have te be invented if he didn't already exist !!!!WOW) say something intelligent?

I agree the interview was ridiculous

but let's not go calling Ahmadinejad a "great man". He still has the problems of the discrimination against women and gays, and supressing freedom in his country.

Let's just get real about world leaders. They are ALL scumbags. Some are worse than others. I would rank Bush as being worse than Ahmadinejad, but that in no way makes Ahmadinejad a "great man".

"Our country's founders cherished liberty, not democracy."
-Ron Paul


I agree totally with your sentiment.

We have enough BOOGY men in our own halls of power.

And REALLY.. WTF is IRAN going to do... Hit Israel with a nuclear weapon???

Do we think they are that DUMB?.. Do we think that ANYONE is that dumb???

We only have 5 +++ generations of Nuclear weapons and god knows what else..

No one is going to strike us... unless they can benefit from it...

Images of life in Tehran you will not see on MSM

Pelley and the Media Gang

Not having any TV, I took time out to watch Scott Pelleys 60 min interview of Iran’s President.

Here are a few telling moments (along with the shameful Columbia University war propaganda job) of how the Media try to create a perception of a “Clash of Civilisations” in order to justify war. Shame, shame, shame on you Pelley and CBS, shame on you Lee Bollinger (Columbia University President) for whoring with the corporate warmongers. The Iranian president remained composed, even though he was smeared through accusations and a battery of GOP ‘talking points’. The students and the television reporters did not seem to be conscious that they were being utterly disrespectful. Did the television audience notice??

http://www.cbsnews.com/sections/i_video/main500251.shtml?id=3289418n Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad last 11 minutes on CBS 60 minutes, talking about "Truth And Terrorism" with Scott Pelley (the Operation Mockingbird interrogator who got the job that Dan Rather had been promised for hushing a story that could have cost Bush the 2004 election : see link : http://www.gregpalast.com/dan-rather-tased-and-confused/#more-1863 )

Will Scott or Dan ever do a little soul searching, and tell us what needs to be done to American ‘reporters’ who fail to ask the right questions about their governments possible criminal acts? (Greg Palast proposes that we ‘taser’ them… )

http://www.cbsnews.com/sections/i_video/main500251.shtml?id=3289528n Ahmadinejad On Bush 4 1/2 minutes : This quote, by Scott Pelley, will go down in our History books: "Bush is a very Religious man!" A must see !

For those curious to see & hear what Ahmadinejad said in the UN General Assembly Tuesday 3 PM, you can click here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/player/nol/newsid_7010000/newsid_7013400/7013426.s...

Here is one of the points he took up (point ‘5’) : “Ignoring Noble values and the promotion of deception and lies. Some powers sacrifice all human values, including honesty, purity and trust, for the advancement of their goals. They propagate skepticism and deception in the relationship between states and peoples; they lie openly, level baseless charges against others, act contrary to legal laws and damage the climate of trust and friendship. They openly abandon morality and Noble values in their relations with others and substitute selfishness, supremacy, enmity and inquisition for justice, respect for others, love, affection and honesty. They sacrifice all the good things and the sublime in life, for their own greed.

I think point ‘5’ could do as a starter for Will Scott’s, Dan Rather’s and Lee Bollinger’s soulsearching that is day by day becoming long overdue.

Love from Brussels,


"unflinching, unswerving, fierce intellectual determination, as citizens, to define the real truth of our lives and our societies is a crucial obligation which devolves upon us all. It is in fact mandatory. (Harold Pinter)

Market forces, weapons deals

Again, market forces decide. The war in Iraq has of course created a huge demand for weapons and they turn up to the buyers from illegal weapons dealers from all corners of the world and of course also from Iran, but this does not mean the Iranian government is behind it, but you cannot scare Western people with a powerless regime that cannot even control heavy armed gangs smuggling drugs and weapons through their country. This is not something you will hear the Iranian regime admit to as it would be seen as loosing face.
It is a fact that drugs are smuggled right through Iran from Afghanistan to Turkey and into Europe and it is just classic that illegal weapons traffic follow the same routes. Often weapons are simply bought by drugs. A smart form of barter economy that is difficult to trace, since no cash is involved.

As for the nuclear question; most Western countries have gone nuclear a long time ago, because it is one of the cheapest forms of energy. It would be better for Iran to use another form of energy than oil, so they could export what they would otherwise use themselves. Iran is also setting up more and more wind power though, another sign that they seek independence from oil, which is only a smart move.

Regarding nuclear weapons; countries with nuclear bombs do not get attacked, so threatening Iran with war would only make them pursue nuclear weapons more. I don't know if they are actually doing that, I doubt it and I do not see any proof of it.

There is a double standard here, the violations of human rights in Iran are also going on in traditional allies of the U.S. ; Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt, Morocco, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan and many more.

Iran is ,as I understand it ,the second largest oil field in the world and that is where the interest of invading that country lies. Everything else is just excuses.

Anyway, if you want to educate the Iranian people on 9/11 , you need to put some Farsi texts on your videos. Not everyone in the world understands English that well, although the Iranians are generally well educated people.
