Al-Qaeda No. 2 Says 9/11 Theories Propagated By Iran


By MAGGIE MICHAEL – 3 minutes ago

CAIRO, Egypt (AP) — Osama bin Laden's chief deputy on Tuesday denied a theory that Israel carried out the Sept. 11 attacks and blamed Iran and Shiite Hezbollah for spreading the idea to discredit the Sunni al-Qaida's strike against the U.S.

The comments in a recording posted on an Islamic Web site reflected the increasing criticism by al-Qaida's No. 2 leader Ayman al-Zawahri against Iran. Al-Zawahri has accused Iran in recent messages of seeking to extend its power in the Middle East, particularly in Iraq and through its Hezbollah allies in Lebanon.

The authenticity of the two-hour audio recording could not be independently confirmed. But the voice sounded like past audiotapes from the terror leader, and the posting where it was found bore the logo of Al-Sahab, al-Qaida's official media arm.

It was the second of two messages answering questions that were posted to Islamic militant Web sites earlier this year.

One of the questioners asked about the theory that has circulated in the Middle East and elsewhere that Israel was behind the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Al-Zawahri accused Hezbollah's Al-Manar television of starting the rumor.

"The purpose of this lie is clear — (to suggest) that there are no heroes among the Sunnis who can hurt America as no else did in history. Iranian media snapped up this lie and repeated it," he said.

"Iran's aim here is also clear — to cover up its involvement with America in invading the homes of Muslims in Afghanistan and Iraq," he said.

Iran cooperated with the United States in the 2001 U.S. assault on Afghanistan that toppled al-Qaida's allies, the Taliban.

Answering questions about Iraq in Tuesday's tape, al-Zawahri said the insurgent umbrella group led by al-Qaida, called the Islamic Nation of Iraq, is "the primary force opposing the Crusaders and challenging Iranian ambitions" in Iraq, he said, referring to the Americans.

As he often does in his messages, al-Zawahri denounced the "Crusader invasion" of Iraq, but in Tuesday's tape he paired it with a mention of "Iranian complicity" or "Iranian agents."

In the latest tape, al-Zawahri was also asked if the terror group had further plans to attack Western countries that participated in the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq and subsequent war.

"My answer is: Yes! We think that any country that has joined aggression on Muslims must be deterred," he replied.

In response to a question signed by the Japanese news agency Kyodo asking if Japan remains a target because it once had troops in Iraq, al-Zawahri said "Japan provided help under the banner of the crusader coalition ... therefore it participated in the Crusader campaign against the lands of Islam."

Japan deployed non-combat troops to southern Iraq in 2003 to carry out reconstruction work. It withdrew its troops from Iraq in 2006 and now conducts airlifts to help supply U.S.-led forces in that country.

Al-Zawahri spoke on a wide range of issues, even global warming, which he said reflected "how criminal, brutal and greedy the Western Crusader world is, with America at the top."

He predicted that global warming would "make the world more sympathetic to and understanding of the Muslims' jihad against the aggressor America."

Asked if there are any women in al-Qaida, the terror leader answered simply: "No." In a follow-up answer, he said: "There are no women in al-Qaida jihadi group, but the women of the mujahedeen are playing a heroic role in taking care of their houses and sons."

In several parts of Tuesday's audio message, Al-Zawahri claimed that the Taliban took over 95 percent of Afghanistan and is sweeping Pakistan as well.

"The Crusaders and their agents in Pakistan and Afghanistan are starting to fall," he said.

In another answer Tuesday, al-Zawahri said it was against Islamic religious law for any Muslim to live permanently in a Western country because in doing so they would "have permanent stay there under the laws of the infidels."

Al-Qaida's media arm, Al-Sahab, announced in December that al-Zawahri would take questions from the public posted on Islamic militant Web sites and would respond "as soon as possible." Queries were submitted on the main Islamist Web site until the cutoff date of Jan. 16.


And some satire;

It was only a matter of time

It was only a matter of time before the US disinfo circuits leaped at this linkage between 9-11 truth and the Iranian president's clumsy shoot-from-the-hip comments.

I bet the talking heads will be sure to pass this along to their little obedient viewers/listeners.

Probably much more to it than clumsy shoot-from-the-hip.

Consider mass emailing truth messages. More info here:

Sniff, sniff..

Sure smells like propaganda!

Al-Manar also figures prominently in what I think was a black propaganda piece that was put out shortly after 9/11:

At least, they are rumored to have figured prominently, probably by the guys who started the rumor in the first place.

Even BBC is carrying this

It seems to me that this is yet another classic Proof of the Operations of Al-CIAda.

Osama bin Laden's chief deputy is taking his instructions from his masters from Langley.

KLA and Osama have had very close ties.

Pity the MSM does not bother to bring this up.

Audio tapes Are Practically Worthless

Very easy for Intel agencies to digitally morph/clone voices to make them nearly identical to the supposed speaker.


Wait, I'm confused.
Didn't the second bin laden say that israeli zionist were behind the attacks?
And why would they not blame their long time enemy? I thought Iran was their friend, so they are saying their friends did it?

The official propaganda doesn't make any since.

For some reason "No. 1" and

For some reason "No. 1" and "No. 2" are not on the same page.

So, in the immortal words of Austin Powers: WHO DOES NO.2 WORK FOR?

This is the most terrifying news I've read in a while. It shows that TPTB are getting very desperate and may do something stupid soon.


Isn't "Iran is training Al Qaeda" one of the neocon talking points?

Al CIAda must continue

Al CIAda must continue to
try and take responsibility for 9/11, especially
as truth continues to rear it's ugly head. I hope
this nation can find a peaceful and productive way
to deal with the criminal elements within our
government that are responsible for the events of
that day and the proceeding war and destruction of
our Constitution and Bill of Rights. All of which
is pretense for the NAU, Amero and eventually
world government. It's not too late if people
would use their common sense and just look at all
the tell tale signs. I refuse to accept that there
is bliss in ignorance. If you love your country
and consider yourself a patriot, then educate
yourself and fulfill your duty as an American.

(1) that "Al Qaeda" is a propaganda arm of CIA?

(2) That US is doing everything it can to demonize Iran and to discredit the 9/11 truth movement.

(3) Both.

What ever happened to the student/person who wrote the software that uncompressed jpg images and applied this to the video tapes of OBL? He concluded that the CIA logo was put onto the tape on the same layer as the Al Qaida logo, thus proving that the tapes were basically coming from the CIA. He seemed to have disappeared.

alciada crap

Come on I don't buy this crap! This is first rate disinformation. Bin Laden said he had nothing to do with this right after the attack on 911. I find it interesting that Israel is being exonerated here they must be a little concerned eh? And we have the #2 man being quoted again, is this a new trend? Are we being conditioned to accept the idea that the number 1 man is perhaps not comming back? Audio tracks can be highly unreliable can't they? Where is Barb Olsen, any ideas?


I don't think Israel solely carried out the attacks, if they were involved with them at all. Same goes for Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, etc...

Why isn't Dick Cheney in prison?

"if they were involved with them at all."

How many Arabs were caught celebrating on 9/11 again? Sorry, jon, 9/11 fits the MOSSAD m.o. not to mention their motto.

Is Ayman Al Zawahiri still a CIA asset?.

Al-Qaeda operatives as senior as Ayman al-Zawahiri, bin Laden’s own right-hand man, have been recruited by the CIA. According to Yousef Bodansky, former Director of the Congressional Task Force on Terrorism, reporting in Defense & Foreign Affairs: Strategic Policy, the al-Qaeda deputy leader was approached by a CIA emissary in November 1997, who offered him $50 million to protect US interests in the Balkans, a deal he apparently accepted. Ayman and his brother, Muhammed, personally oversaw the establishment of al-Qaeda training camps in Kosovo and Macedonia after this point according to Bosnia, Albanian, Yugoslav, Macedonian, American and European intelligence sources, to train the same people -- the KLA (now operating as the NLA) – receiving advanced weapons and military training from the CIA and NATO.

P BS just ran this junk on "The NewsHour"

in their coverage of the days news at the beginning of the hour.

The perps are feeling quite desperate and are trying to harden their unthinking base against 9/11 truth.

All the more reason to promote the family members call for a new investigation along with our best information, like the new paper from Dr. Jones et al.

Don't forget to counter this story with the recently exposed Pentagon media manipulation campaign, all part of their "information operations".

Time to step it up, brothers and sisters, and keep our eyes on the prize.

The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.

"The authenticity"

"The authenticity of the two-hour audio recording could not be independently confirmed. But the voice sounded like past audiotapes from the terror leader, and the posting where it was found bore the logo of Al-Sahab, al-Qaida's official media arm."

Boy, that's becoming a standard refrain.

Guy in my Spanish class that speaks Arabic told me al and as are pretty much the same, they both mean "the". He was having trouble explaining the nuance, and i'm pretty slow, so I didn't catch that part.

Wonder why Sahab went from using one to the other?

Perhaps there was some media story with the previous spelling they didn't want easily discovered if someone was searching with the old spelling?

Probly moot now- these DOD dumbasses keep revealing themselves with every new release, so the new spelling is contaminated, too

The most important part of the article:
"Al-Zawahiri also denied a conspiracy theory that Israel carried out the September 11 attacks on the U.S., and he blamed Iran and Shiite Hezbollah for spreading the idea to discredit the Sunni al Qaeda's achievement.

Al-Zawahiri accused Hezbollah's al-Manar television of starting the rumor.
