Al-Quaeda Calls Out Iran's President for 9/11 Truther Conspiracies: "It Was Us."

This quick item is both funny and deeply sad.

Al-Quaeda has expressed its frustration with IRan and its President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, for blaming the 9/11 attacks on the US Government instead of on the true culprits--them. 

From ABC News:

In the latest issue of the al Qaeda English-language magazine "Inspire", an author appears to take offense to the "ridiculous" theory repeatedly spread by Ahmadinejad that the 9/11 terror attacks were actually carried out by the U.S. government in order to provide a pretext to invade the Middle East.

"The Iranian government has professed on the tongue of its president Ahmadinejad that it does not believe that al Qaeda was behind 9/11 but rather, the U.S. government," an article reads. "So we may ask the question: why would Iran ascribe to such a ridiculous belief that stands in the face of all logic and evidence?"

Though Iran was the first of the two to use the "Great Satan" as a synonym for the U.S., the author claims that Iran sees itself as a rival for al Qaeda when it comes to anti-Americanism and was jealous of the 9/11 attacks.

I have to say, this reminds me of a cartoon in which the villains start infighting and squabbling amongst themselves about who is is MORE EVIL.
