Taliban Blames America for 9/11 in Film Celebrating Suicide Bombers
Terror group describes America as the true ‘terrorist’ party
The Taliban have blamed America for the 9/11 terror attacks in a new video that has been aired on Afghan television.
FDD’s Long War Journal reported:
“The production, ‘Victorious Force 3,’ is the latest in a series of short films celebrating the Taliban’s ‘martyrdom seeking squadrons — that is, the units responsible for conducting complex suicide attacks."
The films were supposed to commemorate the Taliban’s victory over the U.S.-backed government and Western forces.
“The Taliban describes America as the true ‘terrorist’ party while blaming the U.S. for the 20-year war,” the article added.
The September 11, 2001 “attacks were the result of the United States’ policy of aggression against the Muslim world,” the narrator says.
Archival footage of the 9/11 hijackings shows the narrator blaming the United States for al Qaeda’s terror attack.

The Taliban has never accepted responsibility for working with al Qaeda prior to 9/11.
The video shows men in uniform marching and performing drills.
“Afghans were not involved in these attacks. Unfortunately, the U.S. and its allies launched a military invasion of Afghanistan without considering the reasonable stance of the Islamic Emirate on the issue,” the narrator claimed:
According to the Long War Journal:
“America invaded Afghanistan in 2001 because al Qaeda’s headquarters was located there, all 19 of the 9/11 hijackers were trained in the country, and Mullah Omar refused to turn over bin Laden or any other al Qaeda leader.”
There have been several Afghan news outlets, citing Taliban sources, that the terrorist organization would appoint its leader Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, as the head of its Afghan government.
“Granting Baradar the position of most powerful man in Afghanistan belies repeated Taliban assurances that the second Taliban reign will result in fewer human rights atrocities than the first,” Breitbart News reported.
Last week, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid claimed: "there is no evidence" that Osama bin Laden orchestrated the deadly September 11, 2001 terror attacks.
During an interview with NBC News, Foreign Correspondent Ricard Engel noted the war began when bin Laden orchestrated the attacks while he was a guest of the Taliban.
The reporter asked:
"You still don't think that Osama bin Laden carried out 9/11?"
"There is no evidence, even after 20 years of war, we have no proof he was involved," Mujahid responded.
