An Indian leader Saturday said that the US, and Zionists were the prime suspects of 9/11 attacks. In an exclusive interview with IRNA Asif Mohd Khan, Member of the Legislative Assembly of Delhi said: “US should respond those hundreds of unanswered questions which indicated that the September 11 attacks in 2001 were either intentionally allowed to happen or were orchestrated by the US and Zionists”. Expressing his full support for the stands taken by the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Indian leader urged UN as well as Obama administration to formate a fact-finding committee to probe into the events.
A fortnight ago Ahmadinejad in a speech to the UN General Assembly in New York, raised the issue of the many conspiracy theories still surrounding 9/11. He had also proposed that a fact-finding mission be set up by the UN to investigate the events. Asif said that subsequent attacks on Afghanistan and Iraq provided the fodder to the suspicion that US might have attack to justify military action in the Middle East.
Quoting to some of the surveys after the attacks, Indian leader said that such beliefs have currency even in the United States. In 2006, a Scripps Howard poll of 1,010 Americans found 36 percent thought it somewhat or very likely that US officials either participated in the attacks or took no action to stop them. “From the very beginning 9/11 attacks were doubtful, but after seeing the events in later years, the suspicions grown that it was their own operation to find a pretext to hit Muslim countries’, said Asif. Nations, thinkers and politicians around the globe suspect that it’s not a strange thing that the US staged something like this in their own country to achieve a big objective’, he added.
The Indian leader said that the US actions and polices were always controversial. Afghanistan was attacked on the pretext of 9/11 attacks while Iraq was attacked on the pretext that it had Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs). Although both the pretexts were proved wrong.
