This is incredible. Another manufactured audiotape is cranked out and placed on a supposed “mititant Islamic website” (probably hosted in Langley, Virginia) that purports to claim that “Al-Qaeda’s” number 2 guy is anxious to dispel the “outrageous conspiracy theory” that Israel had anything to do with 9/11, and points the finger at Iran, which coincidentally happens to be the place that Bush Co. wants to invade next.
How convenient is that? It’s just ever so nice to have an “enemy” that does just what you want them to! Thanks, “Al-Qaeda,” ….nudge, nudge,…..wink, wink.

“Al-Qaeda’s deputy leader, Ayman al-Zawahiri, has blamed Iran for spreading the theory that Israel was behind the 11 September 2001 attacks.
In an audio tape posted on the internet, Zawahiri insisted al-Qaeda had carried out the attacks on the US.
Allow me to translate this into common parlance for you:
“Don’t believe those crazy conspiracy theorists who point to the massive inconsistencies in the official story! Take it from me, arch-Muslim terror boogeyman al-Zawahiri, it was “al-Qaeda” WE DID IT! It was NOT Israel! You must support your glorious leaders in the White House and Israel in their continued murder and butchery of innocent Muslims of the Middle East! You must support them in their attempts to find a justification for attacking Lebanon and Syria and Iran and murdering millions of Iranian and Lebanese and Syrian civilians!
Remember! It was NOT Israel!!”
He accused Iran, and its Hezbollah allies, of trying to discredit Osama Bin Laden’s network.
Correspondents say the comments underline al-Qaeda’s increasing public hostility towards Iran. In a two-hour audiotape posted on an Islamist website, Osama Bin Laden’s chief deputy responded to questions posted by al-Qaeda sympathisers.
In response to a question about persistent rumours in the Middle East that Israel was involved in the 9/11 attacks, Zawahiri said the rumour had begun on the Hezbollah television station, Al-Manar.
“The purpose of this lie is clear – [to suggest] that there are no heroes among the Sunnis who can hurt America as no-one else did in history, he said.
“Iranian media snapped up this lie and repeated it.”
Now, you may be wondering why a “worldwide Islamic terror group” is defending Israel against “9/11 conspiracy theories” and threatening another Muslim nation. You may also be thinking that al-Zawahiri’s words closely resemble the Bush government’s demand that we should “never entertain outlandish conspiracy theories about the 9/11 attacks”. You will however remain in your state of bewilderment up until the point that you make the leap of logic to the obvious conclusion: that “al-Qaeda” is actually a fully controlled US/Israeli government asset and is dragged out every so often to provide the “reality” of “Islamic terrorism”.
Is it so hard to consider the idea that, since the 9/11 attacks were the casus belli for an expansion of empire that was planned many years beforehand, that those who are waging the war were most probably behind the 9/11 attacks?
At this late stage in the war-on-terror farce, anything that comes from “al-Qaeda” can safely be taken, almost word for word, as the policy, intentions or desires of the Ziocons. From its original role as an excuse to attack Muslim nations of the Middle East, today “al-Qaeda” is being used as an actual arm of the US/Israeli/British military-industrial complex. With “al-Zawahiri’s” recent verbal attacks on Iran, it is quite possible that the US, British and Israeli military and civilian intelligence agencies will begin to stage large-scale attacks within Iran (or on Iranian assets in the Middle East) and have “al-Zawahiri”, in the form of some disembodied voice on the internet, claim responsibility.
From a manufactured war on Islamic terrorism to an equally manufactured war between Islamic peoples of the Middle East, and all of it hinged upon a truly outrageous fantasy called “al-Qaeda”.
