I'm not sure I can with any degree of certainty.

Consider: The US accuses arab terrorists of an audacious and seemingly successful attack. Not many arabs seem to disagree with that conclusion and many (the wannabe jihadists) appear to revel in it and express respect and admiration for 'sheikh' Osama Bin Laden.

So for someone to then visit an arab country and propose a theory whereby the US government was the culprit (If indeed that is what mr rodriguez thinks) kinda goes against the accepted view that some muslim extremists managed to strike a blow against the great satan.

And let's not forget that to the rest of the world, mr rodriguez is visiting iran as the guest of a government which is currently holding a seminar on holocaust denial.

Methinks this trip does mr rodriguez more harm in the eyes of the public and any message of 911 conspiracy he takes to the mid-east will not be believed by those who want to think that they did indeed manage to attack the mighty USA.
