The Supreme Commander of Iranâ€™s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps accused the Bush Administration and the Israeli security service Mossad of ordering the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York and Washington, DC.
â€œThe events of September 11 were ordered by U.S. [officials] and Mossad so that they could carry out their strategy of pre-emption and warmongering and unipolarisation in order to dominate the Middle Eastâ€, Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi told military commanders on Tuesday. His comments were reported by the state-run news agency ISNA.
Safavi sounds like the LEFTY SEPTEMBER 11 CONSPIRACY NUTTERS.
But, what is Iran and the Mullahs REALLY saying?
General Safavi said that Iran was the leading force of the â€œIslamic worldâ€. â€œThe geographic heart of the Islamic world is in Mecca and Medina. But, the political heart of the Islamic world is in the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Supreme Leader [Ayatollah Ali Khamenei] is the flag-bearer of the front of Islamic awakening and the fronts of the awakening of third world nationsâ€, he said.
He said that Washington had been defeated in its strategy of â€œattacking Iraq, Afghanistan, and Lebanonâ€ and creating a new order in the Middle East.
Iran views itself as the REGIONAL HEGEMON of the Middle East. Iran has won and the United States and Israel have been defeated.
Destabilization of American opinion and propaganda are the nature of Iran’s war against the United States and Israel. This is one part.
Khatami’s visit to the United States is another.
Manipulate the Western Media Cycle and make outlandish media claims like September 11 Conspiracy theories to undermine public support for the United States government is all part of the game of media warfare.
And one asks why the American State Department allowed the Iranian propaganda machine into the United States? If one says weakness.
They would be correct.
