Former Malaysian PM says U.S. staged 9/11 attacks

KUALA LUMPUR (WJC)–Former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir bin Mohamad has suggested that the September 2001 terrorist attacks were “staged” by insiders.

“It sounds logical to me. Until today, you cannot even find scraps of the plane that crashed into the World Trade Centre, and there is no picture of the other plane, which was supposed to crash. The way the tower came crashing down was also funny. People who saw it were also not ordinary people. They were professional engineers and what they say is quite credible,” he said in a speech in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur.

Referring to a Hollywood movie, he said: “There is strong evidence that the attacks were staged. If they can make ‘Avatar’, they can make anything. Killing innocent people to provide an excuse for war is not new to the US.”

“I have great respect for the Arabs but for them to hijack four planes is not very Arab. Just imagine the amount of planning that would be involved.”  Rejecting claims that he was being insensitive to the victims, Mahathir stressed that he was “being more sensitive to the victims” as he was saying the attacks were carried out “deliberately.”

The former Malaysian prime minister also said that his views about how 9/11 attacks were carried out would not affect Malaysia’s chances of attracting foreign investment. “I have said this many times even when I was the prime minister. But we still have the foreign direct investment. However, we cannot rely on foreign direct investments alone. We must build on our own system,” he said.

Referring to Israel, Mahathir said: “In seizing the land of the Palestinian to create a homeland for the Jews, the West has launched the longest and the biggest guerilla war of liberation. The West has made a grievous mistake by doing this.”

In the past, the 84-year-old Mahathir – who served as prime minister of the South-East Asian nation from 1981 to 2003 – was repeatedly condemned for making anti-Semitic and anti-Israeli statements.

    As far-fetched as it sounds…I tend to think there was some “staging” going on as well…enough said!
