Tun Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad
The ex-Prime Minister of Malaysia, Mahatir Mohammed, a feisty straight-talking politician, has reiterated his view that the September 11 attacks were an inside job. Mahatir, famous to Australians after being dubbed "recalcitrant" by ex-Prime Minister Paul Keating, apparently demonstrates more flexibility of mind in being open to the possibility of an inside job than Mr Keating, who to the best of my knowledge has never demonstrated what it takes to speak truth about the 911 attacks.

KUALA LUMPUR: There is strong evidence that the Sept 11 attacks on the United States that killed nearly 3,000 could have been 'staged' as an excuse to mount attacks on the Muslim world, said Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
'I am not sure now that Muslim terrorists carried out these attacks. There is evidence that the attacks were staged.
'If they can make Avatar, they can make anything,' the former prime minister told a press conference here yesterday after delivering his speech at the General Conference for the Support of Al-Quds to aid the Palestinians.
He said killing innocent people to provide an excuse for war was not new to the US.
'But whether real or staged, the 9/11 attacks have served the United States and Western countries well. They have an excuse to mount attacks on the Muslim world,' he added.
