The folks at Al Qaeda have plenty in common with fellow fanatic Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. But it seems they're a bit miffed at the Iranian president because of his speech at the U.N. last week.
In it, the famously dismissive Ahmadinejad, who denies the Holocaust and the presence of gays in his country, presented his theory that 9/11 was a U.S. government inside job, not an attack.
Ouch, said Al Qaeda, objecting to the stealing of their thunder. In a rare moment of agreement with the civilized world, Al Qaeda, in their English magazine aimed at the West, Inspire, essentially called Ahmadinejad a moron.
"Why would Iran ascribe to such a ridiculous belief that stands in the face of all logic and evidence?" asks an article written under the byline Abu Suhail, as reported by the New York Times.
The various 9/11 conspiracy theories have their adherents, with differing agendas, all over the world, but they are similar to Holocaust denial in putting twisted politics ahead of "logic and evidence." Fortunately, in both cases it's the culprits that stand for truth. What deniers never seem to fathom is that the Nazis never tried to hide their intentions or their handiwork, keeping meticulous records of their victims and collecting photographic archives; only when the tide of the war turned against them and visions of war crimes trials loomed did they try to demolish the evidence.
Fortunately, whenever apologists or bigots try to distort the truth, you can always count on the psychopaths themselves to set the record straight.
