Jeremy Corbyn claimed that the 9/11 attacks were manipulated by the West to enable them to go to war in Afghanistan.
In a number of pieces written 12 years ago by the now labour leader, he seemed to endorse what some call the ‘New World Order conspiracy theory’.
He criticised Tony Blair and George W Bush for using the September 11 attacks in New York to go to war saying that Osama bin Laden was made to look responsible in order to facilitate their aims.
The Mail Online reports:
In the 2003 piece for The Morning Star, he wrote: ‘Historians will study with interest the news manipulation of the past 18 months, The Telegraph reports.
‘After September 11, the claims that bin Laden and al-Qaida had committed the atrocity were quickly and loudly made.
‘This was turned into an attack on the Taliban and then, subtly, into regime change in Afghanistan.’
Prior to that, he wrote a series of articles which appear to have endorsed the conspiracy theory about the ‘New World Order’.
The revelations come ahead of Mr Corbyn’s first Labour conference as leader where a number of MPs are expected to state the party is unelectable under him.
Labour grandee Lord Mandelson has already warned MPs against making an early move to oust Jeremy Corbyn – but insisted the party could not win with the 66-year-old ‘loser’ in charge.
The former business secretary said the party had ‘stuck two fingers up’ at the country by choosing Mr Corbyn as leader but, in a leaked memo, he said Mr Corbyn couldn’t be replaced until he had shown how unpopular he is at the polls.
The articles, including one for ‘Labour Briefing’ in 1991, Mr Corbyn wrote that the Gulf War was a ‘curtain raiser’ for the New World Order, stating at the rich and powerful and ‘white and western’ could maintain economic order with the ‘free use of all the weapons’.
Furthermore, in Socialist Campaign Group News the same year, he wrote: ‘The aim of the war machine of the United States is to maintain a world order dominated by the banks and multinational companies of Europe and North America.’
