In an argument that borders on silly, al-Qaeda’s deputy leader, Ayman al-Zawahiri, is angry at Iran for spreading the theory that Israel was behind the 9/11 attacks, BBC reports.
In a two-hour, online audio tape, Zawahiri insisted al-Qaeda carried out the attacks. He also accused Iran of trying to discredit Osama Bin Laden’s network through the Hizbullah television station al-Manar.
Zawahiri also criticized Iran for co-operating with the US in its 2001 invasion of Afghanistan to oust the Taliban.
The Shi’ite-Sunni rift has emerged once again, this time between America’s two most dangerous enemies.
