Lebanon - Ahmadinejad Formes Independent Team to Investigate Truth of 9/11 Attacks
Lebanon - Hatemonger Mahmoud Ahmadinejad doesn’t just believe the United States government was behind the 9/11 attacks—he’s out to prove it.
The sharp-tongued Islamic Republic leader claims to have formed an “independent and neutral team” to investigate the deadly attacks, which killed more than 3,000 people and scarred a nation.
The team will “examine the facts and discover the truth of the Sept. 11 events [which] is the demand of all the peoples of the region and the world,” Ahmadinejad said during a controversial visit to Lebanon, London’s Daily Telegraph reported.
Ahmadinejad has regularly made statements doubting the official explanation of 9/11, placing the blame on the attacks on Western governments.
This is his first state visit to the Lebanon, and the bombastic leader plans to visit the border with Israel on Thursday. That visit has drawn scorn from Israeli leaders, one of whom suggested the Iranian president could be assassinated.
“If a situation arises in which Ahmadinejad is in the cross-hairs of the [Israel Defense Forces], he should be killed,” Israeli Knesset member Arieh Eldad said, according to CNN.
Ahmadinejad is expected to visit several locations associated with Hezbollah, a Lebanese-Shiite group with close ties Iran. He has already spoken out in favor of the group, which has fought with Israel for years.
“We fully support the resistance of the Lebanese people against the Zionist regime,” he said, the Telegraph reported.
