Editor’s Note: Zen Gardner, Before It’s News. This is all according to the PNAC script. Guess they figure the American sheeple are dumbed down enough to where they can get away with any nonsense they want to throw out there. They never even proved Bin Laden had anything to do with 9/11, never mind prove Iraq had anything to do with it yet they’ve decimated two whole countries, are invading others, and now want to take on Iran. China won’t stand idly by. These insane boys are itching for a big fight and it’s all deliberate. Stay vigilant and prepared. -Z)
Iran accused of September 11 role
Benjamin Weiser, Scott Shane
The Sydney Morning Herald
Two defectors from Iran’s intelligence service have testified that Iranian officials knew in advance about the attacks of September 11, 2001, says a US court filing that seeks damages for Iran’s ”direct support for, and sponsorship of, the most deadly act of terrorism in American history”.
One of the defectors also claimed that Iran was involved in designing the attacks, the filing said. The defectors’ identities and testimony were not revealed in the filing but were being submitted to a judge under seal, said lawyers who brought the original suit against Iran on behalf of families of dozens of September 11 victims.
The suit says Iran and Hezbollah, the Lebanese militant group with close ties to Tehran, helped al-Qaeda with planning the attacks and with the hijackers’ training and travel. After the attacks, the suit says, Iran and Hezbollah helped al-Qaeda operatives and their families to escape, in some cases providing them with a safe haven in Iran.
