The US Orchestrated 9/11, Iranian Government Official Says
"What we watched on the TVs regarding the slamming of two planes into the New York Twin Towers, was in fact a make-believe scene," Deputy Culture Minister Mohammad-Hadi Homayoun was quoted by state news agency IRNA.
He spoke in an address to the Iran-Russia Dialogue among Civilizations Conference in Moscow.
"The sky-scrapers were destroyed through bomb explosions and afterwards the massive US media propaganda and the crusade issue began", the minister said referring to US President George W Bush's controversial remarks that outlined a "crusade" against terrorism following the 9/11 attacks.
