Good luck getting Obama to work with you on transparency. The transparency president has been the least revealing leader in history. At this point we are starting to wonder about aliens.
they muddle the argument in the NYTimes by making the claim that they have no hard evidence… but the Iran connection would have the equivalent proof if the witness testimony correlated well enough. The question that now needs to be asked is what degree of equivalence do the narratives of these witnesses have?
Two defectors from Iran’s intelligence service have testified that Iranian officials had ‘foreknowledge of the 9/11 attacks,’ according to a court filing Thursday in a federal lawsuit in Manhattan that seeks damages for Iran’s ‘direct support for, and sponsorship of, the most deadly act of terrorism in American history.’ via nytimes.com
One of the defectors also claimed that Iran was involved in planning the attacks, the filing said. The defectors’ identities and testimony were not revealed in the filing but were being submitted to a judge under seal, said lawyers who brought the original suit against Iran on behalf of families of dozens of 9/11 victims.
The suit’s allegation that Iran had foreknowledge of the attacks is hard to assess fully, given that the defectors’ testimony is being filed under seal. The suit contends that Iran and Hezbollah, the Lebanese militant organization with close ties to Tehran, helped Al Qaeda in planning the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, and in facilitating the hijackers’ training and travel. After the attacks, the suit contends, Iran and Hezbollah helped Qaeda operatives escape, providing some with a safe haven in Iran. The question of an Iranian connection to 9/11 was raised by the national 9/11 commission and has long been debated.
our enemies flip around everything. even the very meaning of September 11th. I was on an airplane a few days after 9/11 and was arrested because I was muttering to myself in annoyance about Islamic terrorism. it was obvious that I was angry that violent Jihadists had attacked America, but the morons at the airport in Mexico twisted the story as a reason to suspect that a Jewish kid was a terrorist himself
back story here:
I also was accused of terrorism (not once, but twice)
on an Airplane flying home from Mexico to New York City a little after September 11th…. it was very hard to get any “LEFTISTS” to feel any sympathy because the “LEFT” had been radicalized by Bush. Also it is hard to get the “LEFT” to feel any sympathy for people who don’t share their destructive agenda. I wasn’t a big name… but I was accused of terrorism and I’m not a Muslim. It also didn’t help that the experience led me to abuse vices. the whole thing is meant to be a comic book… unfortunately when I was writing it I was high as a kite… so it can be a little hard to read at times. The entire experience was real… and the stress of it did not lead to coherent art. I have now been sober for years… so my brain is clear. I am going to be working on a new version… that will be easier to read.
I don’t claim to be an angel in the story… but here is the outline:
I was confused during the attack in 2001 as a terrorist. It is in no way a critique of the U.S. government. At that point in politics it had not yet been made clear that it was an attack by Muslims (mostly originating from Saudi Arabia). I had been staying the month in Mexico and on hearing about the attack in New York, I wanted to go back to my family. It was before 9/11 and I left for Mexico naively without a passport… many third world countries were convinced that the attack had been perpetrated by Israel, and I as a Jew was under suspicion. It was the U.S. state department that saved me. As a result I felt reconciled with my country (I was angered by the election of 2000 in Florida). At this point in my life I had a lot of anger. As a result I had regressed to habitual Marijuana use that often blurred my judgement. I was feeling betrayed by my country and family and I in no way endorse my actions involving illegal narcotics… beyond the fact that it was a very confusing time for me. My family comes from a left wing point of view and often times our politics come into conflict with our needs.
