Via 'Aqoul and the BBC News. In an audiotaped interview posted to the web, Al Qaeda deputy Ayman al-Zawahiri insists that Al Qaeda really did carry out the 9/11 attacks. Claims that Israel was responsible are, it seems, all part of a Shi'ite disinformation campaign:

Zawahiri said the rumour had begun on the Hezbollah television station, Al-Manar.

"The purpose of this lie is clear - [to suggest] that there are no heroes among the Sunnis who can hurt America as no-one else did in history," he said.

"Iranian media snapped up this lie and repeated it."
