Washington 'Speechless' after Ahmadinejad 9/11 Comment

WASHINGTON (AFP) - The United States said Wednesday it was "speechless" after Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad voiced doubts about the accepted version of the September 11, 2001 attacks on New York and Washington.

"I am not sure what you say about a statement like that. It leaves one speechless," said State Department spokesman Sean McCormack.

"It is just misguided, misinformed rhetoric," McCormack said.

"I cannot tell whether or not it is something that he truly believes or if this is just an attempt to try to shake up public opinion in Iran or elsewhere," McCormack said.

Despite the comments of US officials, Ahmadinejad is essentially correct. The Iranian President appears not to be in full command of the facts- apparent from his articulation of the evidence (see full story above)- but he is very much on the right path.

Perhaps Ahmadinejad might think letting other experts do the talking for him. He could authorise the purchase of millions of copies of scholarly 911 books - such as David Ray Griffin's The New Pearl Harbour- and post them to households around America and Europe. That would stir up a lot of trouble.
