Terrorist watch

Mahmoud Amadinejad, the president of Iran, went to the U.N. recently and spouted out his usual nonsense that the U.S. was secretly behind the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania.

Here’s how ridiculous that conspiracy theory is. Al-Qaeda, the terrorist group behind the 9/11 plot, says he’s an idiot:

The latest issue of the terrorist group’s English-language magazine Inspire, quoted in the Iranian media (via The Guardian), says:

“The Iranian government has professed on the tongue of its president Ahmadinejad that it does not believe that al-Qaeda was behind 9/11 but rather, the US government,” the article said, according to Iranian media. “So we may ask the question: why would Iran ascribe to such a ridiculous belief that stands in the face of all logic and evidence?”

So wrapping this up: Mahmoud Amadinejad is being called an idiot by al-Qaeda, and al-Qaeda has a magazine.
