By Thierry Meyssan — Voltaire Net
On September 11, 2001 the world watched helplessly as the attacks that plunged the United States into mourning took place. Against all logic, the Bush Administration attributed them to an Islamist plot hatched by a group of fanatics inside a cave in Afghanistan. This accusation was exploited to justify a war against terrorism that was to start in Afghanistan and Iraq and extend, according to President Bush, to 60 countries.
In the immediate aftermath of the attacks, I initiated an international debate to challenge that rendition of the events and to condemn the logic of the “clash of civilizations”. In 2002, I appealed for the establishment of a United Nations commmission of investigation into 9/11. In 2005, through the Axis for Peace conference, I layed the foundation for an international movement of intellectuals opposed to this domination agenda.
In the same spirit, on 23 September 2010, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called on the United Nations General Assembly to appoint a 9/11 fact-finding commission. In addition, he announced that a world conference against terrorism will be convened in Tehran, on which occasion the 2011 Axis for Peace Conference will also be held.
The march towards truth can no longer be stopped.
