An Italian politician who became outspoken towards the end of his life.
Francesco Cossiga headed the Italian Government for seven years until April 1992.
Unlike a lot of members of the establishment, Francesco Cossiga wrote publicly about 9/11. One translation of an article of his in  reads "[Bin Laden supposedly confessed] to the Qaeda September [attack] to the two towers in New York [claiming to be] the author of the attack of the 11, while all the [intelligence services] of America and Europe... now know well that the disastrous attack has been planned and realized from the CIA American and the Mossad with the aid of the Zionist world in order to put under accusation the Arabic Countries and in order to induce the western powers to take part... in Iraq [and] Afghanistan." In Cossiga's obituary, the Guardian quoted a part of this and claimed that "He was, of course, being ironic".
A Quote by Francesco Cossiga
|"9-11/Israel did it"||“All democratic circles in America and of Europe, especially those of the Italian centre-left, now know that the disastrous attack was planned and realized by the American CIA and Mossad with the help of the Zionist world, to place the blame on Arab countries and to persuade the Western powers to intervene in Iraq and Afghanistan.”|
