2,506. 9/11/2001

“Responding to news reporting that the Taliban had aided the 9/11 plotters, Taliban leaders issued a cynical statement [on the evening of September 11, 2001]. ‘Mullah Omar condemns this act,’ it said. ‘Mullah Omar says Osama is not responsible. We have brought peace to this country [Afghanistan] and we want peace in all countries.’ ”
