By Ronald L. Ray —
Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan is the commander of ground forces in the Iranian army. In a television interview on Iran’s Arabic-language news network, Al-Alam, on April 19, 2015, the military leader asserted that the United States government was behind the terror attacks against American targets on September 11, 2001. The Persian general’s view is that the U.S. leaders attacked their own people as a means to begin a war of conquest in Western Asia, in order to divide Islam and control the region’s rich natural resources.
As important as this story ought to be—a major military commander stating that the events of 9-11 were a “false-flag” operation—it would appear that not a single mainstream media outlet has covered it. In fact, no one reported it, except the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), which posted video excerpts of the Pourdastan interview with its own English translations. It was then picked up more than a week later by UK’s The Independent, online by Washington news outlet “Politico” and on the website “Islam Times,” along with a handful of blogs.
The Times seems important to the credibility of the story, as MEMRI is a notorious Zionist/neoconservative propaganda outlet. It is staffed by anti-Arab and anti-Iranian former bureaucrats, bankers and intelligence operatives, with a list of advisors reading like a “who’s who” of Jewish “Holocaust” hoaxsters and neocon-men, from the likes of Elie Wiesel and Deborah Lipstadt to John Bolton and General Michael Hayden.
In the interview, Pourdastan stated that the ongoing series of wars in the Middle East arise “from a comprehensive American strategy. After the fall of the Soviet Union, the Americans felt that a new force was beginning to materialize, namely the union between Sunnis and Shiites.” He continued: “This force is Islam, or the Islamic world. In order to prevent this force from materializing, the Americans did many things. . . . The first thing they did was to plan and carry out the events of 9-11, in order to justify their presence in Western Asia, with the goal of ruling it.”
One thing the general also could have said, but did not, is that the destruction of the three World Trade Center buildings in New York City, the mayhem at the Pentagon and the downed plane in Shanksville, Pennsylvania involved an accomplice. They were a joint effort between Israel’s Mossad and the U.S. federal government.
From our beginnings in August 2001, AMERICAN FREE PRESS has been dedicated to bringing readers the ugly truth that the federal government’s official account of the horrific events was a poorly concocted cover-up, designed to paper over an insidious plan to advance the totalitarian agenda of New World Order criminals, like former Vice President Richard Cheney and the Bush family, while also setting in motion the radical destabilization of the Middle East desired by Zionists, in order to establish “Greater Israel” from the Nile to the Euphrates and beyond.
AFP has presented, for example, the results of investigations by Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth and others, which demonstrate the controlled demolition of WTC towers 1, 2 and 7, including evidence of nanothermite and possibly even miniature nuclear devices. We told you about the “dancing Israelis”—Mossad agents sent to film the collapse of the “twin towers” before they were apprehended in a van full of explosives on the way to blowing up a New York City bridge.
AFP’s own Victor Thorn has written an entire series of books on the 9-11 events, demonstrating conclusively the impossibility of the government’s story at all three locations, and pointing a finger at the hidden culprits. So it should not surprise that a major military leader like Pourdastan, in a foreign nation with significant intelligence capabilities, would lay responsibility for 9-11 on the correct shoulders. Why he ignored Israel’s complicity is unknown. It seems that only our “enemies” talk any sense anymore. It is U.S. rulers and reporters who belong in the booby hatch.
