Ahmadinejad's Bumbling 9/11 Comments Please Neo-Cons
Iranian President does not represent the truth movement, obsession with his idiocy only proves debunkers are frightened to take on real experts

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's bumbling comments about 9/11, in which he crudely questioned the official story by referring to the death toll, play right into the establishment media and the Neo-Cons' hands and give them an ample opportunity to debunk the entire truth movement - don't think for a minute they won't seize the chance.
"Four or five years ago a suspect event took place in New York," President Ahmadinejad said.
"A building collapsed and they said 3,000 people had been killed but never published their names," he said in a speech in the holy city of Qom.
People like BBC reporter Greg Palast have long suspected that Ahmadinejad is actually a stooge who is in bed with the Neo-Cons, and his latest buffoonery only lends credence to that summation.
First of all, Ahmadinejad sets the scene by displaying his ignorance of when 9/11 even happened, it was nearly seven years ago, not "four or five".
Since Ahmadinejad has also repeatedly questioned the scale of the Holocaust, this gives debunkers a perfect opportunity to link 9/11 truth with Holocaust denial, a pathetic smear that they have always longed to anchor to some actual evidence, since none whatsoever exists.
Naturally, when a French actress says something about 9/11 or the fool Ahmadinejad opens his mouth, the establishment media afford it lavish attention for days on end, but when hundreds of scholars, professors, architects and scientists go public, the silence is deafening.
That's because the media chooses its targets - they only give attention to someone who they can easily debunk.
The U.S. government wasted no time in posturing feigned incredulity yesterday when they reacted to the comments.
"I am not sure what you say about a statement like that. It leaves one speechless," said State Department spokesman Sean McCormack.
"It is just misguided, misinformed rhetoric," McCormack said.
Ahmadinejad's bizarre doubting of the official death toll, something which is not shared by the 9/11 truth movement as a whole, is a perfect straw man argument that the establishment can use to shoot down and then tar the rest of the truth movement with the same brush.
So to all the debunkers out there - Mahmoud Ahmadinejad does not represent the 9/11 truth movement - and your obsession with prevaricating on his comments only proves that you are frightened to go head to head with credible figures who are asking real questions about the official story - people like Japanese MP Yukihisa Fujita and former Italian President Francesco Cossiga.
