  • Jim David says:

    Great interview, Jim. There is no doubt that the neocons in this country will never be satisfied until the U.S. uses all of its resources, including American blood and American money to destroy any nation considered as an enemy of Israel. This passionate attachment to Israel has nearly bankrupted our nation and has caused a loss of respect and admiration from around the world that we once so proudly enjoyed. You are doing America justice by delivering the message to the American people. Thanks, Jim.

    It seems that there is now a push to relate Iran with the attack on September 11. A group of lawyers have filed suit against Iran on behalf of families of dozens of 9/11 victims.

    This will give Israel even more ammunition to get the U.S. to attack Iran knowing that Iran has nobody to defend them in the suit and a judgement for the plaintiffs is most likely. The article in yesterday’s NY Times is as follows:

    Court Filings Assert Iran Had Link to 9/11 Attacks –

    Published: May 19, 2011

    Two defectors from Iran’s intelligence service have testified that Iranian officials had “foreknowledge of the 9/11 attacks,” according to a court filing Thursday in a federal lawsuit in Manhattan that seeks damages for Iran’s “direct support for, and sponsorship of, the most deadly act of terrorism in American history.”


    Defector: Iran aided 9/11 plot


    Talking about the Israel Lobby with Brig. Gen. James David (who kindly wrote the above comment) on the Liberty Hour :

  • Patriot says:

    Exactly, Jim. Take a look at the following as well (with the Israel firsters trying to associate 9/11 with Iran to set the stage for war with Iran like they used 9/11 to set the stage for war with Iraq as they conveniently ignore page 147 of the 9/11 Commission Report which conveys that US support for Israel was the primary motivation for the tragic 9/11 attack as mentioned to 9/11 Commission co-chair Lee Hamilton via as well):

    A stunning new federal lawsuit claims that Iran helped plan and facilitate the 9/11 attacks on the United States.
    Our own Mary Snow has been looking into this claim for us, digging deeper.

    Mary, what are you finding out about this so many years later?

    MARY SNOW, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Well, Wolf, this lawsuit cites sealed testimony from defectors of Iran’s intelligence agency, who claim that Iran had prior knowledge of the September 11 attacks.

    And lawyers who filed the case are asking a federal judge in New York to now hold Iran liable.


    SNOW (voice-over): Inside the 9/11 Commission report, there are two pages that put attorney Thomas Mellon Jr. on a seven-year path, a path that resulted in a federal lawsuit alleging Iran is linked to the September 11 attacks.

    THOMAS MELLON JR., ATTORNEY: Two hundred and forty, 241.

    SNOW: Under the title “Assistance from Hezbollah and Iran to al Qaeda,” the report concludes, “We believe that this topic requires further investigation by the U.S. government.”

    And that’s what prompted Mellon to dig further.

    MELLON: And we took one interview to the next, one tip, one lead, one bit of evidence to the next step. And it’s now taken us since July of ’04 to firmly establish the truth that indeed it was Iran who assisted al Qaeda.

    SNOW: The 9/11 Commission report found several of the 9/11 hijackers traveled through Iran into or out of Afghanistan, without ever getting their passports stamped. But the commission found no evidence that Iran or Hezbollah, the State Department-sanctioned terror group that is supported by Iran, were ever aware of the planning for the attacks.

    In the lawsuit filed in New York, Mellon and other attorneys allege Iran and Hezbollah were involved in the planning.

    (on camera): What’s your strongest evidence?

    MELLON: My strongest evidence is the fact that the people who wrote the two pages on the 9/11 Commission report calling for further investigation have now given us very long and detailed affidavits.

    SNOW (voice-over): Mellon says three defectors from Iran also provided evidence in 25 hours of sworn videotaped testimony. But that testimony is currently sealed to protect their identities.

    One person who is interested in monitoring the case is Thomas Kean, the former co-chairman of the 9/11 Commission. He says he’s unaware of anyone in the U.S. government following up on the commission’s recommendation to investigate Iran further.

    THOMAS KEAN, FORMER CO-CHAIRMAN, 9/11 COMMISSION: There were a couple of examples of that. This wasn’t the only example, a couple of examples where we pointed to leads that we didn’t have the staff or the time to investigate. And nobody followed through, yes. That’s annoying. It’s serious. People should have followed through.

    SNOW: At this point, Ellen Saracini says all she wants is an answer. Her husband, Victor, was a pilot for United Flight 175 that was hijacked and flown into the World Trade Center. She and other families named in the suit are seeking damages. But she says she knows no damages will be paid.

    ELLEN SARACINI, SEPTEMBER 11 WIDOW: It will fulfill a lot of feelings of mine that need to have the perpetrators of such evil found accountable. But it still doesn’t bring my girls’ daddy back home at the end of the night.


    SNOW: Now, our calls to the Iranian Mission to the United Nations were not returned. And Iran has not responded to the lawsuit. But its state-run media quotes a senior Iranian lawmaker refuting the allegations, saying, in his words, Washington is playing a blame game in the Middle East — Wolf.

    BLITZER: What about these three Iranian defectors? What do we know about them?

    SNOW: The lawyer we talked to said that they were high enough that they had access to sensitive information, saying they were with Iran’s Ministry of Information and Security. Again, their testimony is sealed, but the attorney says that he does expect at some point that that testimony will be public.

    BLITZER: Mary Snow, thanks very much. You will stay on top of the story for us.

    Remember that the ‘hate Jews’ line is always used by Israel firsters (and those who cover for Israeli attrocities) as Thaddeus Russell responded to in the following article:
