Iran has not been happy lately after President Trump axed their nuclear deal. So in a brazen display, Iranian officials have admitted to facilitating the 9/11/01 terrorist attacks in the United States. They admitted to secretly aiding al Qaeda operatives that would eventually be involved in the hijacking of planes that flew into the Twin Towers in New York City.
The Free Beacon explains:
“Mohammad-Javad Larijani, an international affairs assistant in the Iran’s judiciary, disclosed in Farsi-language remarks broadcast on Iran’s state-controlled television that Iranian intelligence officials secretly helped provide the al Qaeda attackers with passage and gave them refuge in the Islamic Republic, according to an English translation published by Al Arabiya.
“‘Our government agreed not to stamp the passports of some of them because they were on transit flights for two hours, and they were resuming their flights without having their passports stamped. However their movements were under the complete supervision of the Iranian intelligence,’ Larijani was quoted as saying.
“Larijani admitted that Iranian officials did not stamp the passports of the al Qaeda militants in order to obfuscate their movements and prevent detection by foreign governments. Al Qaeda operative also were given safe refuge in Iran.
“‘The Americans took this as evidence of Iran’s cooperation with al-Qaeda and viewed the passage of an airplane through Iran’s airspace, which had one of the pilots who carried out the attacks and a Hezbollah military leader sitting [next to] him on board, as evidence of direct cooperation with al-Qaeda through the Lebanese Hezbollah,’ Larijani was quoted as saying in the May 30 interview, which is gaining traction on social media.
This is the first time a senior Iranian official has admitted to helping al Qaeda and directly helping facilitate the 9/11 attacks.
The U.S. government has not yet responded. But you can be sure President Trump will be livid when he sees this news. The State Department did acknowledge it in an Arabic language tweet:
