An evening aperitif or two for restless blogsurfers. Here is Memri summarizing views presented at an "Arab League think tank" about how the U.S. staged the Sept. 11 attacks , courtesy of French (big surprise there) author Theirry Meyssan. Memri says a variety of Arab media is favorably reporting Meyssan's talking points:

* Both Congress and the U.S. media covered up the truth by not investigating events.
* It was not reported that the White House's Old Executive Building was bombed, as was a third building in Manhattan.
* Bin Laden’s involvement: "this myth, also does not stand analysis," since he was a previous CIA agent who was visited by the head of the CIA in a Dubai hospital in July.
* The 1200 detainees held in the U.S. knew nothing of the attacks and their names are kept secret so that they cannot be charged.
* The American military – to further its interest and hegemony over the world - was responsible for the attacks.
* It is a possibility that the planes of September 11 were remote controlled. For two hours before the attack waves from a homing device were recorded transmitting from, and interfering with transmission from, the twin towers and such a device could be used to direct airplanes. If the planes were controlled by remote, no highjackers were needed, thus the passenger lists were fake.


Big parts of the world are still delusional about this, folks, which is why we are at the very beginning of a long and bloody battle, though many of us are willing to go back to sleep. One hopes the Bush Administration does not, but this Weekly Standard report is not encouraging.
