A speculation confirmation


TOC suggested that:

…[the Minnesota 6] probably do not believe 9/11 had anything to do with religious fervor, nor perhaps even that Muslims were involved.

In fact, the MN6 spokes-imam, Omar Shahin, had this to say (Arizona Republic article here) a week after 9/11:

…members of the Tucson mosque may have helped bin Laden in the early 1990s, when he was fighting against the Russians. But that was during the Cold War when U.S. intelligence agencies were encouraging support for bin Laden.

“They (the CIA) called him a ‘freedom fighter,'” Sahin said. “Then they tell us he is involved in terrorist acts, and they stopped supporting him, and we stopped.”

Shahin and Saadeddin expressed doubt that Muslims were responsible for the Sept. 11 attack. They also said they don’t trust much of what the FBI has divulged – including the hijackers’ identities.

Not believing the FBI cast of characters is one thing,
Producing a living Mohamed Atta would convince me.

Not believing bin-Ladin’s bragging about having done it is another thing.
A video of bin-Ladin denouncing the attack would not convince me.

Not denouncing it in the strongest terms would be a third thing.
This is what imam Shahin failed to do to convince me.

Acting like it never happened.
Convinces me.
