France: Apologies for blaming the CIA responsible for 9/11 in the textbook
A French publisher has apologized in the textbook of history for declaring the United States Secret Agency (CIA) responsible for the September 11, 2001 attack in the United States.
According to a report by the British Broadcasting Agency BBC, in recent days there has been a textbook of history in bookstores in France, which states that the CIA probably planned for the September 11, 2001 attacks.
According to the report, the campaign was apparently picked up by a group of school teachers on social media, while the book, "History of the Twentieth Century in Flash Cards," was created for undergraduate students.
The book's publisher, Alps, apologized on its website, saying it should not have been included.
In an apology issued in French, he wrote that 'Writings containing factual conspiracy theories should not have been included in this book; this is not a publisher's editorial or author's opinion'.
"The authors want to erase the words, online and in all books that have not been marketed," he said.
The book was based on the history of the century in France, Europe, and the world, with its author being a teacher of history and geography and a graduate of the University of Paris's Sciences Po.
According to the report, the book came to market in November 2019 but so far no one has purchased it except the daughter of the school teacher who marked it.
The author, in book number 204, cited the CIA as a reference to the 9/11 events in New York and Washington and the creation of Al Qaeda.
He wrote in the book that "no doubt this global event was planned by the intelligence agency CIA targeting symbols of US power to enhance US influence in the Middle East."
The first report regarding the book was published by 'Inspirational Watch' on its website, indicating that there was a misinterpretation regarding the September 11 incident.
He said a survey was done in December 2018 in which 21 percent of people under the age of 35 supported the idea that the US government was involved and that people of the same age read textbooks.
Remember that attacks on New York and Washington on September 11, 2001 were attributed to al-Qaeda, and it was said that 19 members of al-Qaeda collided with the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and Pennsylvania after being abducted.
Reports say that at least 2,997 people were killed in the attack, while Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, a close ally of al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden, was killed.
