Iranian President declares pre-planted explosives brought down towers, not just planes

WASHINGTON -- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says that as an engineer he's sure the twin towers were not brought down by jetliners.

Ahmadinejad, in an interview with The Associated Press, says it would have been impossible for two jetliners to bring down the towers simply by hitting them. he says some kind of planned explosion must have taken place.

Ahmadinejad stopped short of saying the United States staged the disaster 10 years ago. But he says there are questions the world should resolve, and noted there are doubters in the United States as well.

Ahmadinejad was denied his request last year to visit the site of the World Trade Center collapse. He says he's not making another attempt this year. He's in New York City for the U.N. General Assembly.

Iran leader's U.N. visit sparks protests, walkout

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — American diplomats led a walkout at the U.N. General Assembly Thursday as Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad fiercely attacked the United States and major West European nations as "arrogant powers" ruled by greed and eager for military adventurism.

The two U.S. diplomats, who specialize in the Middle East, were followed out of the chamber by diplomats from more than 30 countries. They included the 27 European Union members, Australia, New Zealand, Somalia, Liechtenstein, Monaco, San Marino and Macedonia, a U.N. diplomat said. Israel boycotted the speech.

Ahmadenijad's fiery anti-U.S. and anti-Israeli rhetoric has been a staple of the General Assembly's ministerial meetings.

Last year, Ahmadinejad provoked a walkout by the U.S., EU, and others when he said a majority of people in the United States and around the world believe the American government staged the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks in an attempt to assure Israel's survival.

The provocative comments prompted the U.S. delegation to walk out of Ahmadinejad's U.N. speech, where he also blamed the U.S. as the power behind U.N. Security Council sanctions against Iran for its refusal to halt uranium enrichment, a technology that can be used as fuel for electricity generation or to build nuclear weapons.

Ahmadinejad's speech pitted the poverty and unhappiness of most countries against the riches and power of the U.S. and unnamed European nations that he accused of perpetuating wars, causing the current global economic crisis and infringing on "the rights and sovereignty of nations."

He attacked the United States and European colonial powers for abducting tens of millions of Africans and making them slaves, for their readiness "to drop thousands of bombs on other countries," and for dominating the U.N. Security Council He singled out the U.S. for using a nuclear bomb against Japan in World War II and imposing and supporting military dictatorships and totalitarian regimes in Asia, Africa and Latin America.

"It is as lucid as daylight that the same slave masters and colonial powers that once instigated the two world wars have caused widespread misery and disorder with far-reaching effects across the globe since then," Ahmadinejad said. "Do these arrogant powers really have the competence and ability to run or govern the world?"

The Iranian president answered by calling for "the shared and collective management of the world in order to put an end to the present disorders, tyranny and discriminations worldwide." Last year, he said "the future belongs to Iran" and challenged the U.S. to accept that his country has a major role in the world.

Ahmadinejad made no mention of his disputed re-election in June 2009 when security forces systematically crushed opposition protests, the current internal political turmoil that has sharply diminished his power, or Iran's nuclear program which the U.S. and its allies believe is aimed at producing nuclear weapons.

"While President Ahmadinejad is lecturing the world from the U.N. podium," Human Rights Watch's U.N. Director Philippe Bolopion said, "dissent is still being crushed ruthlessly in Iran and basic rights demanded by millions in the Arab world are brutally denied to Iranians who are demanding the same."

"The world assembly should take with a grain of salt the remarks of a leader who said nothing about the public hanging yesterday of a 17-year-old in his own country," he said.

In his speech, Ahmadinejad noted "the widespread awakening in Islamic lands ... (in) the pursuit of the realization of justice, freedom and the creation of a better tomorrow." He said "our great nationa stands ready to join hands with other nations to march on this beautiful path."

The Iranian leader accused the U.S. of threatening to place sanctions on anyone who questions the Holocaust and the Sept. 11 attacks with sanctions and military action.

Without naming the United States, he asked: "Who imposed, through deceits and hypocrisy, the Zionism and over 60 years of war, homelessness, terror and mass murder on the Palestinian people and on countries in the region?"

Ahmadinejad accused some unidentified European countries of still using the Holocaust "as the excuse to pay fine or ransom to the Zionists." He also said any question about the foundation of Zionism is condemned by the U.S. "as an unforgivable sin."

Mark Kornblau, spokesman for the U.S. Mission to the United Nations, said: "Mr. Ahmadinejad had a chance to address his own people's aspirations for freedom and dignity, but instead he again turned to abhorrent anti-Semitic slurs and despicable conspiracy theories."

When the idea of an independent fact-finding investigation of "the hidden elements" involved in the Sept. 11 attacks was raised last year, he said, "my country and myself came under pressure and threat by the government of the United States."

"Instead of assigning a fact-finding team, they killed the main perpetrator and threw his body into the sea," Ahmadinejad said, referring to the U.S. military's killing of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden in early May.

"Would it not have been reasonable to bring to justice and openly to trial the main perpetrator of the incident in order to identify the elements behind the safe space provided for the invading aircraft to attack the twin world trade towers?," he asked.


someone pointed out that 84% of Nations/Reps stayed to hear him out.

Good information on the 84% number. That is impressive.

I hope more or some of those people join him in calling for a new investigation into the events of 9/11. An alliance needs to be formed of foreign leaders calling for a new investigation. I'm not sure why that hasn't happened yet.

UN Reps Should Receive Toronto Hearings Final Report

These Nations/Reps should be made fully aware of the findings of the Toronto Hearings as soon as possible. This is not just about what the Iranian leader says or thinks.

If the US Congress will not act then perhaps the UN will in some meaningful capacity.

Comments are overwhelmingly pro-truth.

The comments at RawStory used to be far less pro-truth than they are nowadays, which are overwhelmingly pro-truth. The comments on this Huffington Post article are overwhelmingly pro-truth now as well. This is good. If Ahmadinejad is actually an engineer it would be interesting to see him sign the petition at Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth. Regardless good trends. Keep up the good work.

Ahmadinejad: A liability rather than an asset.

Regarding Ahmadinejad, the man has such a terrible reputation, regularly painted by the US media as a holocaust denier, that his pro 9/11 truth position is damaging, rather than helping the movement. To be honest, he's one of the *last* people we need on our side, IMHO.

Loud and Clear.

I hear ya.

That is a sentiment that is shared by many.

It's too bad too..... because he is right about the towers.

At least he is not promoting the Judy W. BS.

The response is: Even tyrants can be right sometimes.

"Which brings us to Ahmendinejad’s recent speech. Like Goebbels, he doesn’t have to lie about the crimes of his enemies when the truth serves his purpose much better. We agree with the WSJ that Ahmendinejad can be expected to lie about the tortures, assassinations and detentions committed by his own regime. But he doesn’t even need to lie about the disgraceful Abu Graib incidents to inflame his audience. And he doesn’t need to lie about the overwhelming evidence that there is something very wrong with the “official” 9/11 story. Even non-scientists, once shown the evidence, know that 47 story steel office buildings do not collapse into their own footprints at freefall acceleration due to “office fires”.

Sure, but.....

It comes down to a matter of marketing.

As a movement, we must carefully select what we promote and whom we support publicly.

Vegetarianism does not use Hitler as it's face for marketing, but Hitler was a vegetarian...

Is Ahmendinejad Hitler, of course not -but the public does not have a good picture of him in their heads from the propaganda machine.

Again, it's too bad, because he is correct about the towers.

As someone else mentioned on this thread: Maybe this will get more people interested in proving him wrong, and find it extremely difficult to so, because he is right.

Does anyone else think it is extremely childish for the U.S. to walk out of UN speeches at all? What a bunch of idiots.

Wake up, perhaps we should give Ahmadinejad a chance ?

You know why the man has such a terrible reputation, etc and always a horrible photo of him in the papers etc ?

Because he as been blacklisted, put us as horrible etc by the good guys !

Wake up and realise that perhaps we should look at Ahmadinejad a second time and give him a chance !



Don't know what would be the best way to handle that.

IF Ahmadinejad were to sign the ae911truth petition, it would be very interesting.

More interesting is IF ae911truth would display him as a suporter, IF he signed.

The truth is the truth...

regardless of its messenger. Even though we cannot agree with his politics we cannot disagree on the truth. 2+2=4 regardless of who states it. Accepting him as a signatory would unquestionably cause the mainstream presstitutes to heap all manner of disparages on the group. At some point he would have to have his engineering credentials verified so maybe that would prevent him signing. This is the first I've heard of him having any engineering background. It would seem more appropriate for him to be with political leaders for truth or even better, he should just start his own cause for 9/11 truth, arab leaders for 9/11 truth? His remarks do bring the subject to national attention and that is always good in my opinion as fence sitters see the talking heads feigning indignation and outright dismissing facts without explanation. If I wasn't too sure they were lying when I was first exposed, this certainly helped me see. I hope this can blow thru the news cycle quick. I heard the podcast today, this should be topping the news around the country IMHO.

Well, that's my 2 bits.. thanks all..



Ahmadinejad's Speech - September 22, 2011

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Addresses United Nations General Assembly - 2011

2009 U.N. Speech
2010 U.N. Speech


I knew I would find your comment here because every time Ahmadinejad speaks the response is the same. Look, I found out about the dangers of fluoride from The John Birch Society and wouldn't believe it because, frankly, those people are nuts. But I still had to get fluoride pits drilled out of my teeth. I found out what tryptophan was from The National Enquirer (they broke the story on that). Just because a truth shows up from a bad source doesn't make it less true. People have to learn to screen information, to glean information. I am reading a book "No Simple Victory" by Norman Davies. He says: "the internet is one of the worst resources for a historian because it is so full of misinformation and falsehoods, but guess what SO IS EVERYTHING ELSE!" (paraphrase) So you have to pick and choose what fits. But I will say this; that the problem with dissemination of the truth is not coming from the side of the crankiness or kookiness of the "truthers" the problem is coming from the "notlisteningness" of the the general public. I hope you like my neologism.


Huffington Post

is delaying... but letting my comments publish. That's good.

On the bad side, it's pathetic that major news sources only cover 911 truth when a "bad Guy" is making the case. God, they are so obvious in there intention to manipulate the masses.

Time To Accept That Major Media Is Official Propaganda Tool

If nothing else, the recent past has demonstrated that the major western media in all its forms is by all appearances, a propaganda tool for the federal government and related powerful interests. After all, control over information is vitally important to these interests.

Don't be too fooled into believing that maybe the media are just misinformed on some matters.

Little known fact


of the JFK assassination , high ranking Soviet officials accused the CIA of being behind the hit.

I can't recall the names, but if you watch the documentary "Evidence of Revision" you can see Walter Cronkite (who until recently supplied the voice of the Owl at Bohemian Grove) pretending to be shocked -- shocked I tell you -- that such an absurd and hateful idea should be promulgated by the Evil Empire.

The CIA's webpage on JFK is highly amusing, and recommended. It shamelessly quotes an internal CIA memo claiming that Jim Garrison has “attacked CIA more vehemently, viciously and mendaciously than has any other American official or private citizen whose comments have come to our attention. In fact, he [has] outstripped the foreign Communist press, which is now quoting him delightedly."

As with JFK, the only heads of state to speak out on 911 are official enemies. These include the leaders of Cuba, Venezuela and Iran.

One of the highest ranking officials of an allegedly "friendly" country to call bollocks is Leonid Ivashov, who was Chief of Staff of the Russian armed forces on 911. Putin is both unwilling and unable to call a spade a spade, and indeed has dismissed "911 conspiracy theories" as absurd. Were he to state the obvious, US-Russian relations would deteriorate drastically. As evinced by the expansion of NATO, the cold war never ended. William Blum has stated exactly this. It was never about the "world communist conspiracy", it was about power relations between the United States and Russia, as well as imperial designs in the "third world".

Concerning Ahmadinejad, one thing that needs to be stressed is that he is a virtual saint compared to Obama, and more significantly, the Shah. Shortly after Mossadegh was overthrown, a report by Amnesty International claimed that Iran had the worst human rights record on planet earth, and that the torture techniques taught by the CIA to SAVAK were "beyond belief".

This is not to suggest that Ahmadinejad IS a saint, obviously; he is a politician and like all heads of state he oppresses his people and denies them equality and real democracy. But again, he is a virtual saint compared to the butcher Barack Obama. It's sorta like comparing a rat to a hyena.

My opinion is that Ahmadinejad's comments should be welcomed -- not because they are required, or because they aid our PR efforts, which they obviously don't -- but because they showcase the moral bankruptcy of the "international community". The fact that Human Rights Watch has condemned his statements is also telling.

What we have here is something unique in human history -- an "open secret" unparalleled. Everybody in a position of influence knows the truth, but hardly anyone is willing to acknowledge it.

The Emperor has no clothes.

Hot Damn Danse

I am always impressed with your talent with words and ideas and your ability to communicate them.
I'm glad you are on the side of truth,

Thanks Joe

Back atcha.

Let us have the courage to decide for ourselves !

Thank you for
"but because they showcase the moral bankruptcy of the "international community". The fact that Human Rights Watch has condemned his statements is also telling."

because the good guys are telling us that we are making a mistake. But now we have to tell the good guys "You are done" we are doing what we feel right.



A man I have always admired

Ahmadinejad is one of the very few national leaders--in fact I know of no other--who has come out for 9-11 Truth. This is no accident. I believe Ahmadinejad is a man of true faith. It may not be the faith many of us ascribe to, but it is authentic. His demeanor betrays such faith. He has continually welcomed the United States to lay down its gripes and join the rest of the world in bringing in an era of peace, as this article shows. The talk by many who have left comments here that Ahmadinejad is some nasty dictator is pure US propaganda. It's amazing that some will take the same line as the country that will do anything in its power to shut out 9-11 truth. Ahmadinejad said he had been threatened by the US government for previously making similar remarks. He has truly hit THE Achilles' heel of the US hegemonic monster.


Picked this up this morning on anti-Bilderberg Tony Gosling's email distribution:

"2. Iran's Ahmadinejad preaching peace, civilisation, spiritual enlightenment and explaining who destroyed Bretton Woods in the nicest possible way
Don't miss this mind-blowingly brilliant speech - "

wonderful discord on my post-Thank you all

Many of you noted I posted this article just as it came out, in the news, with absolutely no commentary. It wasn't about crediting or discrediting Ahmandinejad. As some of you astutely pointed out, it's the truth, regardless of whom the messenger might be. And after all, it's possible we'll get some new truth advocates that get so infuriated by his comments they'll set out to disprove them, only to find out they can't. Some of the strongest truth advocates started out believing it couldn't be so, but all the evidence left them believers. And YES, I'd just love it if main stream media covered one of the countless credible, well-known and trusted truth advocates, rather than just the fringe and the bad guys. Until then, it's all too obvious the MSM is a mere puppet.

Of course Ahmadinejad tells

Of course Ahmadinejad tells the truth. What has he got to lose? we've invaded the country to his East & we've invaded the country to his West and we've been rattling sabers against him ever since. He knows what coming and so does everyone else with two or more brains cells working whether they'll admit it or not.
