Life Imitates Art: Al Qaida Upset by 9/11 Conspiracy Theories
Looks like yesterday’s parody is today’s news:
Osama bin Laden’s chief deputy on Tuesday denied a theory that Israel carried out the Sept. 11 attacks and blamed Iran and Shiite Hezbollah for spreading the idea to discredit the Sunni al-Qaida’s strike against the U.S.
“The purpose of this lie is clear — (to suggest) that there are no heroes among the Sunnis who can hurt America as no else did in history. Iranian media snapped up this lie and repeated it,” he said.
“Iran’s aim here is also clear — to cover up its involvement with America in invading the homes of Muslims in Afghanistan and Iraq,” he said.
More. Of course, sometimes the news and the parody come together in a single package:
Al-Zawahri spoke on a wide range of issues, even global warming, which he said reflected “how criminal, brutal and greedy the Western Crusader world is, with America at the top.”
He predicted that global warming would “make the world more sympathetic to and understanding of the Muslims’ jihad against the aggressor America.”
Asked if there are any women in al-Qaida, the terror leader answered simply: “No.”
