We need a REAL 9/11 investigation (even if illegitimate crazyman Ahmadinejad agrees)

Illegitimate Iranian “leader” Mahmoud Amadinejad calls the official U.S. account of 9/11 “a big fabrication”:

Iran’s president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who said last month that the terrorist attacks in the United States on Sept. 11, 2001, were “a big fabrication,” wrote to the United Nations secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, on Tuesday to ask him to open an investigation into the events of that day.

In a letter to the secretary general, Mr. Ahmadinejad asked him to “form an independent fact-finding committee trusted by regional countries on major elements behind [the] September 11 attack which was carried out as the main pretext to attack the Middle East,” according to the Iranian Students News Agency.

A completely biased sampling of the 36 posted reader comments shows many thoughtful people consider the official story absurd and believe the U.S. government has still not seriously investigated 9/11, positions I share completely:

  • There are a lot of unanswered questions about 9/11. See www.ae911truth.org. Just because the crazy Iranian leader says it, doesn’t mean it isn’t true.

  • John Farmer, who was the Senior Counsel for the 9/11 Commission, recently came out with a book called “The Ground Truth: The Story Behind America’s Defense on 9/11″. The author builds the inescapably convincing case that the official version… is almost entirely untrue… Farmer, who is Dean of Rutger Universities' School of Law and former Attorney General of New Jersey, was responsible for drafting the original flawed 9/11 report. So, if its mostly untrue, then crazy Iranian guy in this case is unfortunately not wrong in asking for a new investigation.

  • About time someone with an international voice has the courage to drag this stinking corpse out in the open.

  • 1,100 architects and engineers worldwide signed a petition calling for independent investigation of the destruction of those three buildings this spring. The evidence they offer is compelling. There is no dispute that the official explanation offered by the 9/11 commission could stand a little work—it doesn’t even mention building 7. Personally, I can’t believe our air defense response was what it was and that no one seems to mind…. The victims families have been calling for independent investigation and have been largely shunned. Of course the whole subject is extremely difficult to face because it involves accepting as a premise some degree of complicity of forces within the US government.

  • I found this quote by former Reagan administration official & economist Paul Craig Roberts: “Most of the reviews of John Farmer’s book miss its importance. Farmer has no way of knowing what happened on 9/11 or who did it. What he does know and has figured out is that the 9/11 Commission was lied to by people who were supposed to be helping the Commission deliver the truth to the public. Whether the lies were big or little, whether the lies were told to coverup a false flag operation or to cover the butts of agencies that had failed in their responsibilities, whether Farmer’s explanations for the lies are correct or incorrect, the fact remains that the Commission was misled. The conclusion to be drawn is that the Commission’s report is unreliable and, therefore, that we do not have the truth about 9/11. That this conclusion comes from the legal counsel to the Commission is compelling evidence that a new investigation is required.”

  • I dare anyone of you to take these comments [supporting the official 9/11 story] to any firehouse in New York city and see what happens to you. Ahamadinejad or not [a real] investigation is coming.

  • The 9/11 investigation, done not at the request or desire of the Bush-Cheney administration, was a white-wash which does not withstand serious scrutiny. There are far too many strange things which occurred from the total lapse of the air force response (busy doing an “exercise” with Cheney supervising, in which fictional planes were attacking….), the in-footprint-collapse of WTC 1&2, which structurally should have ended with the floors gone but the central column(s) standing; to the inexplicable (by normal physics) collapse of the ignored bldg 7, and on and on. A true, independent investigation of 9/11 is long over-due and a necessity.
