US and Israeli military and intelligence agencies were involved in launching the September 11, 2001, terror attacks, says an American scholar and a retired professor in Madison, Wisconsin.
“9/11 was in fact an orchestrated event that was brought to us compliments of the CIA, the neocons (neoconservatives) in the Department of Defense and Mossad,” said James Henry Fetzer, founder of the Scholars for 9/11 Truth.
Their “objective was to transform American foreign policy from one in which, at least officially, we never attacked any nation that had not attacked us first, to one in which we became an aggressor nation, launching attacks to destabilize seven governments in next five years,” Fetzer told Press TV on Friday.
On Friday, the US Congress released 28 pages of a congressional report on the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, which show the Saudi government may have had a hand in the attacks.
The previously classified 28 pages of the Joint Inquiry report also hints at Saudi Arabia’s support for terrorist activities in the US and other countries, but fails to show its extent.
"According to various FBI documents and CIA memorandum, some of the September 11 hijackers, while in the United States, apparently had contacts with individuals who may be connected to the Saudi Government," the report said.
Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia has welcomed the release of the pages, saying there is no proof of Saudi involvement in the attacks.
US President Barack Obama, under pressure from Congress and the public, announced in April that the 28 pages, which have been kept secret since 2002, would be declassified soon.
The September, 11, 2001 attacks, also known as the 9/11 attacks, were a series of strikes in the US which killed nearly 3,000 people and caused about $10 billion worth of property and infrastructure damage.
US officials assert that the attacks were carried out by al-Qaeda terrorists but many experts have raised questions about the official account.
They believe that rogue elements within the US government orchestrated or at least encouraged the 9/11 attacks in order to accelerate the US war machine and advance the Zionist agenda.
