Aid & Comfort to the Enemy
We don't talk about the treasonous aspects of 9-11 Denial too much around here; our focus is mostly on the domestic impact. But we also have to consider how 9-11 Denial affects our image around the world, and so this story from Jon Gold sickens me.
Tonight, as a surprise, I received a phone call from the great Willie Rodriguez. We talked for a good while, and during the conversation, Willie handed down this exclusive:
William Rodriguez, the last survivor of the North Tower has been formally invited by the Iranian Government to give a series of presentations about 9/11 in Iran. The reason he was invited, was because they saw his presentation in front of 22,000 Muslims during his recent U.K. tour. The Ministry of Cultural Affairs thought it would be a good idea as a "Peace Mission" to bring Rodriquez to Iran.
Rodriquez says that he "feels very honored that he has been tapped to do these series of presentations as a peace initiative, and he feels he will be more protected in these countries than in his own."
Given that the Venezuelan Government thought enough of Willie to provide him 5 bodyguards during his stay there, I can see why.
Gold doesn't apparently realize the irony of that last observation. But this is a disturbing turn nonetheless. Willie Rodriguez is apparently going to follow in the footsteps of David Duke, who recently addressed the Holocaust Denial conference in Iran. He is being used by our enemies as a "useful idiot", spreading hatred for America by accusing it of the crime of the century.
Willie Rodriguez deserves kudos for what he did on 9-11. He deserves a good raspberry for what he's doing now.
Update: UKDave raises an excellent point at JREF:
Consider: The US accuses arab terrorists of an audacious and seemingly successful attack. Not many arabs seem to disagree with that conclusion and many (the wannabe jihadists) appear to revel in it and express respect and admiration for 'sheikh' Osama Bin Laden.
Methinks this trip does Mr Rodriguez more harm in the eyes of the public and any message of 911 conspiracy he takes to the mid-east will not be believed by those who want to think that they did indeed manage to attack the mighty USA.
