Local Press Gives Credence to Interesting Opinions

0

An Associated Press article by Christopher Torchia recently appeared in a local newspaper. The title of the article was, “Conspiracy Theories Still Abound’. A photo under the article’s title shows Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad declaring in a speech to the United Nations that most people in the world believe the United States was behind the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.” This is the same world leader who denies that the Jewish Holocaust (genocide) ever occurred.

Below the photo with the above comments is the following quote, “Initially, I was doubful about the conspiracty theories. But after seeing the events in later years, I don’t have any doubt that it was their (United States’) own operation to find a pretext to hit Muslim countries.”- Shaikh Mushtaq Ahmed, Pakistani Bank Manager. In the article the following comments are quoted,”That theory might be true,” said Ugur Tezer, a 48-year-old businessman who sells floor tiles in the Turkish acpital, Ankara. “When I first heard about the attack I thought, ‘Osama,’ but then I thought the U.S. might have done it to suppress the rise of Muslims.” The Turkish government refuses to accept responsibility for their role in the Armenian genocide of 1915-1918 during which time, death came to more than one million Armenians. Note that Armenia is almost 100% Christian while Turkey is nearly 100% Muslim.

Here are some questions we might ask ourselves. If the US president in 2001 had been a liberal, would the same conspiracy theory have been created and propagated? Do we trust our antagonists more than our own leaders? (It has been reported that Cuba’s former head-of-State Fidel Castro believes it was an inside job and Venezuelan President-for-life Hugo Chavez believes the attacks were self-imposed.) Have any ‘facts’ been revealed and circulated that could provide firm evidence of US government complicity in the 9/11 attacks?

If you believe Rosie O’Donnell, the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 were hatched by the US government. If you believe Rosie and other ‘truthers’, you may have to spend the rest of your life lamenting that Present Franklin D. Roosevelt probably sent scrap iron and steel to Japan prior to December 7, 1941 so the Japanese could attack Pearl Harbor and that President Clinton was in cahoots with blind Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman and his co-conspirators for the attack on the twin towers in NYC on Febraury 23, 1993.
