The list of celebrity 9/11 Truthers grew by one today when Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad suggested that the attacks on the the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were staged. The remarks were made during an address to the Intelligence Ministry staff and reported by state media.


"The September 11 incident was a big fabrication as a pretext for the campaign against terrorism and a prelude for staging an invasion against Afghanistan," he said. Mr. Ahmadinejad also reportedly described the attacks in New York as a "complicated intelligence scenario and act."


Ahmadinejad has a history of not believing in things that everyone else believes in. Most notably, of course, the Holocaust, which he once called "a lie based on an unprovable and mythical claim."
