A top Iranian official has admitted for the first time that Iran knowingly helped al-Qaeda terrorists including some of the 9/11 attackers travel secretly through the Middle East.
Their movements [through Iran] were under the complete supervision of the Iranian intelligence, Mohammad-Javad Larijani said in a recently surfaced interview.
That was one of the main accusations leveled against Iran in the U.S. governments 9/11 Commission Report, which named the nation as a state sponsor of terrorism.
Larijani, the secretary of the Iranian judiciarys High Council for Human Rights and a former diplomat, is a prominent member of the regime.
Our government agreed not to stamp the passports of some of them when al-Qaeda members passed through Iran on trips between Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia, Larijani confirmed.
The ruse protected the terrorists from prosecution by Saudi authorities, he said and shielded at least one of the pilots who turned passenger planes into deadly missiles on 9/11.
Larijanis confession came in a May 30 interview on Iranian state TV. Al-Arabiya News reported on the interview on Friday, and the English translation was confirmed by the Daily Caller.
It buttresses an April 30 court ruling that ordered Iran to pay $6 billion to families of 9/11 victims for the countrys role in supporting the terrorists who attacked the U.S. in 2001, taking 2,977 lives.
We know we were right, said Tara Bane of Yardley, Pennsylvania, one of the plaintiffs in the case. Her husband Michael worked for Marsh & McLennan on the 100th floor of the North Tower.
We didnt need them to admit it, Bane told The Post. But this is maybe some vindication.

An act of war
Kerry’s and Obama’s buddies. Gave them a pallet o cash as a bribe so that they would be nice.
Speaking of Lurch he has been quite. Maybe he is on his death bed.
More likely getting some more plastic surgery.
Jihad knows no sectaraian boundaries -- of course they helped, and finance, and proliferate terrorism and jihad. Thanks CondoleezzaProtege.
Could be embarrassed at how effective Trump has been lately and ineffective he and Obama were. Also, he probably doesn’t want to go head to head with Trump.
And they gave sanctuary to Obama’s family and inner circle after 911.
This is a total manufactured and absurd lie.
In a related story, water is wet.
(This forum runs on evidence. It’s OK for you to say that, but there has to be some substantiation for your assertion)
It was 100% Saudi Arabian Sunni. Iran is Shiite. They hate Sunni . There is not one word about Iran in the extensive 911 commission final report. Zero.
911 commission findings ?
The US has been helping Al Qaeda in Syria as recently as two months ago, when it tried to protect them from elimination by the Syrian Army in Eastern Ghouta.
Only idiots and the Kenyanesian did not know this.
I guess you are a total believer in the Warren Report as well?
