In identifying those responsible behind the Sept. 11 attacks, there were three viewpoints.
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.
Iraans leider Ahmadinejad gebruikte op donderdag zijn spreektijd tijdens de Algemene Vergadering van de Verenigde Naties om zout in de Amerikaanse wonden van 11 september te strooien. Hij suggereerde dat de Amerikaanse regering zelf achter de aanslagen in New York en Washington in 2001 zaten. Hierop verliet de Amerikaanse delegatie bij de V.N. de zaal.
