THE Taliban has celebrated the 9/11 terror attacks in new films and shockingly blames the United States for the deadly plane hijackings.
The videos were posted to the Twitter account of Afghanistan’s national RTA Pashto television station on Thursday ahead of the 20th anniversary of 9/11 next week.
The 40-minute “Victorious Force 3" film, celebrating the Taliban’s “martyrdom-seeking” suicide bombers, accuses "terrorist" America of "cruelty and atrocities."
Its narrator blames the USA for the 20-year war, claiming: "The Muslim nation of Afghanistan was forced to stand up against terrorist America and its allies to cleanse its soil of their filthy existence."
The video gloats that the "invaders are flowing from Afghanistan" and touts its advanced military, jihadi, and martyrdom-seeking force," who are "proud to make any sacrifice to defend its faith, land, and independence."
The narrator claims the September 11, 2001 “attacks were the result of the United States’ policy of aggression against the Muslim world" and claims Afghanistan was not involved.
The video also featured a squad of marching soldiers the narrator said would "destroy enemy security personnel and patrols in their laser precision strikes."
It also featured archival footage of the horrific attacks 20 years ago. RTA captioned the Twitter video "Conqueror Force."
The video emerged after a Taliban spokesperson said there was “no proof” that Osama bin Laden was involved in the hijackings.
Bin Laden became the world's most wanted fugitive after plotting the 9/11 attacks before being killed by US Navy SEALs in 2011.
Zabihullah Mujahid was pledging not to allow al-Qaeda use Afghanistan as a base when he told NBC News on Wednesday: "When Osama bin Laden became an issue for the Americans, he was in Afghanistan.
"Although there was no proof he was involved. Now, we have given promises that Afghan soil won’t be used against anyone.”
REFUSAL TO COOPERATE
The Taliban harbored Bin Laden in Afghanistan after the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center towers.
George W. Bush demanded that the they hand him over and end the terror training camps – but the Taliban refused.
This is when the US launched airstrikes and toppled the Islamist regime with the help of the Afghan Northern Alliance ground forces.
However, US military officials are now concerned the toppling of the Afghan government would pave the way for an al-Qaeda resurgence.
The US intelligence community told Congress that al-Qaeda “will continue to plot attacks and seek to exploit conflicts in different regions" back in April.
[al-Qaeda] will continue to plot attacks and seek to exploit conflicts in different regions.
"In recent years, US officials have characterized the AQ threat as stemming mainly from its affiliates, which have generally focused on local issues in their respective areas of operation, where they threaten local US personnel, interests, and partners."
The 9/11 Memorial notes: "The attacks killed 2,977 people from 93 nations: 2,753 people were killed in New York; 184 people were killed at the Pentagon; and 40 people were killed on Flight 93.
"Al-Qaeda was based in Afghanistan. They operated training camps there, and openly lived in the country with the support of the Taliban, an Islamist group that ruled the country."
