Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: And now the hit pieces begin

Yesterday, at the annual United Nations General Assembly, the Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, said in his address to the gathered world leaders that the “majority of the American people, as well as most nations and politicians around the world agree with this view” (that the attacks of September 11 2001 was an inside job).

This not only causes the vast majority of the U.S. delegates to leave the hall in disgust, but it also causes the Main Stream Media to go into fits of panic as the news spreads that someone has the guts to stand up in the United Nations and say that the American Administration, under former President George W. Bush, committed the world’s worst ever terrorist atrocity against their own citizens, and not only that, but that the majority of Americans know that they did it.

You may find the full speech on video here.

The New York Times, in an effort to lessen the import of this statement, deliberately misquoted him at the beginning of their article, saying that he said that “some” Americans believe that 9/11 was an inside job, knowing full well that most readers will only skim over such an article and would only read the first two paragraphs before going off to see if Lindsey Lohan is back in jail yet.

To quote the beginning of the New York Times article:

“The president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, issued a series of incendiary comments in his address to the United Nations General Assembly on Thursday afternoon, noting in particular that some people believe the United States orchestrated the Sept. 11 attacks as part of a propaganda campaign to “reverse the declining American economy” and to “save the Zionist regime,” meaning Israel.”

It is only later that they quote what he actually did say, far enough down in the article that most people probably would bother reading down that far. This is what President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad actually did say:

“In identifying those responsible behind the Sept. 11 attacks, there were three viewpoints,” he said. “First, that a very powerful and complex terrorist group able to successfully cross all layers of the American intelligence and security carried out the attack. This is the prevalent viewpoint which has been supported mainly and advocated by American statesmen.”

“Second: that some segments within the U.S. government orchestrated the attack to reverse the declining American economy and its grips on the Middle East in order to save the Zionist regime. The majority of the American people, as well as most nations and politicians around the world agree with this view.

“Third: it was carried out by a terrorist group but that the American government supported and took advantage of the situation. Apparently, this viewpoint has fewer proponents.”

In the New York Times’ emergency hit piece, a rather telling sentence is written just before the quote, of which I would like to examine closer:

“Mr. Ahmadinejad framed his comments about Sept. 11 as an examination of opinions, an approach he has used in questioning the Holocaust, as well.”

This sentence is deliberately designed to make the reader equate 9/11 Truth with Holocaust Denial, a Neural-Linguistic Programming technique known as “discrediting by association”. And yet, as I myself, and many other Patriots can testify, the official accounts of what actually happened during those terrible events of the 9th of September 2001 just do not add up with the vast body of video and documentary evidence we have uncovered since the event. Even the 9/11 Commissioners and Senior former CIA Agents have grave misgivings over the official account of these events.

The British Guardian newspaper has even gone as far as doing two separate pieces on Ahmadinejad’s speech, and the proposed reaction to it by Nick Clegg, the deputy Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, when he makes his speech at the United Nations General Assembly.

The first piece, entitled “Ahmadinejad accuses US of ‘orchestrating’ 9/11 attacks to aid Israel“, even goes as far as to say that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad accused the U.S. government of ‘orchestrating’ the September 11 attacks, when in fact he did no such thing. As we have already seen above, he merely put forwards three opposing views of what occurred that fateful day, and offered to set up an independent investigation of all the available evidence.
