The ''Truthers'' get an ally

Truthers is the name given to the those who think the United States was responsible for bringing down the World Trade Center. You may have seen some of their letters, blog posts, or their comments on various TV shows about the attacks.  This conjecture, in my mind, is sheer nonsense and in some ways is an insult to the 3,000 people who perished that day.

But now, the Truthers have support, It comes from Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the president of Iran, who said at the UN the other day that the US may have been behind the attacks.

And why would the US do that? The Truthers are a bit hazy on that, but not the Iranian president. He blamed Israel.

Ah, that explains it all.

    Fred , This TRUTHERS need to provide some tangable evidence. Have you heard of any? If not just ignore them.

    The late conservative columnist and commentator Robert Novak also blamed Israel, as did Pat Buchanan and many other isolationist rightwingers.

    I recall the months leading up to the Iraq War, and Novak flatly predicted there were no WMDs in Iraq, and that the war against Iraq was trumped up by pro-Israeli neoconservatives “not to make the world safe for democracy but to make the Middle East safe for Israel”.

    Actually I’m quite surprised Ahmadinijead didn’t say anything about AIPAC and recent respectable scholarly studies detailing the relationship between AIPAC and the US Congress. Maybe he hasn’t read them, but I also recall Pat Buchanan referring to Congress as “Israeli-occupied territory”. Anyway, Ahmadfanijead didn’t say anything.that I haven’t seen posted on many extreme rightwing and isolationist message boards.in this country.
