RNA - “Neither the Taliban nor [al-Qaeda terrorist group leader] Osama bin Laden had anything to do with 9/11,” James Fetzer claimed in an interview on Sunday, adding that he believed the attacks were hatched by the CIA, the American neo-conservatives, the US Department of Defense, and Israel’s Mossad.
He said there appeared to be “a government within the [US] government” that sought to falsely blame Muslims in general for the attacks.
According to Press TV, the US invaded Afghanistan in 2001 under the pretext that the then-Taliban regime in the Asian country was harboring the leader of the al-Qaeda terrorist group, bin Laden, who was held responsible for the deadly attacks on US territory.
The Taliban, toppled in the US-led invasion, have been attacking government and civilian targets in Afghanistan ever since. Recently, the Afghan government has been attempting to reach out to the group for negotiations to potentially end their militancy.
