This Is Kind of a Big Effing Deal

Iran admits they helped the terrorists who struck America on September 11, 2001.

Iranian officials, in a first, have admitted to facilitating the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the U.S. by secretly aiding the free travel of al Qaeda operatives who eventually went on to fly commercial airliners into the Twin Towers in New York City, according to new remarks from a senior Iranian official.

Mohammad-Javad Larijani, an international affairs assistant in the Iran's judiciary, disclosed in Farsi-language remarks broadcast on Iran's state-controlled television that Iranian intelligence officials secretly helped provide the al Qaeda attackers with passage and gave them refuge in the Islamic Republic, according to an English translation published by Al Arabiya.

Well that's a rather inconvenient revelation for our European friends upset that America withdrew from the farcical Iran nuclear deal.

I thought that this help--and Iranian support for al Qaeda in general--was well known, although Democrats would have impeached Bush 43 for acting on it in the heat of the Iraq War; and it was shoved down the memory hole by Obama in his quest for Nobel Peace Prize-inspired reset with aspiring nuclear power Iran.

But the Iranians have admitted it. It is convenient that, as I've said before, the difference between an Iranian "moderate" and a radical Iranian is that the latter are unwilling to even pretend to be anything but fanatical killers who hate the West.

Of course, it took a lot of deception all the way around to pretend the mullah regime in Iran could be made a responsible non-nuclear power.

If this is big news to some people, just wait until people hear news that Saddam had ties to al Qaeda.

UPDATE: We took note:

The Trump State Department said Tuesday it is taking a top Iranian official's explanation of events linked to the travel of the 9/11 terrorist attackers as an admission of guilt in facilitating the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City, according to comments provided to the Washington Free Beacon.

Iran under the mullahs has long been at war with America. We should act accordingly.
