THE Iranian official news agency IRNA held a debate on “ September 11 a big fabrication”. Pakistani analysts and senior journalists took part into the discussion. The debate was centred on the speech of the Iranian President Mr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad centred on the same topic. The Iranian President maintained in his speech that September 11 attacks on the United States were used to justify the US war on terrorism. He described the destruction of the twin towers in New York on 9/11 as a “ complicated intelligence scenario and act.” He was of the view that 9/11 was a big fabrication and a pretext for the campaign against terrorism and a prelude for staging an invasion against Afghanistan. He termed 9/11 attacks suspicious and accused the West of seeking to dominate the Middle East.
The analysts held diverse views. One view rejected the conspiracy theories and maintained that in no way the US administration could be involved in such criminal activities that go at variance with the US laws and could be easily discovered by the strong US media. However, it was argued that “ insiders” within the US intelligence and security agencies could have helped the perpetrators who carried those terrorist acts. This view relies on the “ controlled demolition” of the attacked twin towers and building 7 that necessitates inside help and very sophisticated explosives that are only available with the US military. Over 1000 US architects and engineers have recently demanded a new investigation on 9/11 attacks “ to save US democracy.”
