Your source is not credible.

Once again I have to thank Obama and Booker for allowing them to keep the nukes and a suitcase of taxpayer money to top it off. The Israelis were ready to take out the site anytime but Obama held Israel back and now it's too late after they've refined the uranium to weapon grade. A bombing can cause a major meltdown and ruin the region.

Actually I don't care what anyone says. I use my brain and figure out who/what is credible and who/what isn't.

Quoting...

Despite that, Larijani, who is the secretary of the judiciaryís so-called High Council for Human Rights, which is accused by international human rights organizations of violations and cover-ups, in Iran, confirmed that al-Qaeda members were in permanent contact with Iranís intelligence ministry and that they used Iran in their flights to Afghanistan and other countries.

Earlier this year, a federal US judge ordered Iran to pay $6 billion to families of the victims of 9/11 after he found various government entities were accountable in the 9/11 attacks.

...
The Abbottabad documents which American troops seized from al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Ladenís hideout when he was killed in 2011 in Pakistan, and which were published by the CIA in November last year, revealed details pertaining to Iranís relations with al-Qaeda.

According to Thomas Joscelyn and Bill Roggio in their analysis in the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, a letter showed that a prominent al-Qaeda member confirmed in a letter that Iran is willing to provide everything that the group needs, whether arms, money and training camps for Hezbollah in Lebanon, in exchange of attacking American interests in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf.

...
Among the 113 letters in Bin Ladenís handwriting which the CIA disclosed on March 16, 2016 were those that included directions as to how al-Qaeda should deal with Iran. Bin Laden said in one of these letters that Iran is key player for the al-Qaeda ďmovementĒ and knows their secrets. He recommended not forming battle fronts against it, confirming the strength of ties between al-Qaeda and the Iranian regime.


Also...

US judge orders Iran to pay $6 bln to families of 9/11 victims

ĎThe evidence presented established that Iranís provision of material support to al-Qaeda was a cause of the 9/11 attacks and the resulting damage, injuries, and deaths,í Haefele said in a statement to ABC News.

ĎIt is difficult for those injured or left behind to ignore the findings of the federal court about Iranís culpability.

The judge ordered the following to be paid to compensate for the damages: $8.5 million for each parent, $12.5 million for each spouse, $8.5 million per child and $4.25 million per sibling, as seen on the outlet.

Iran has kept quiet about the lawsuit and itís unlikely they will ever pay.

Of course, you're free to keep blowing your dog whistle of misinformation to justify yet another fabricated war.

Iran Admits To Facilitating 9/11 Terror Attacks

Iranian officials, in a first, have admitted to facilitating the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the U.S. by secretly aiding the free travel of al Qaeda operatives who eventually went on to fly commercial airliners into the Twin Towers in New York City, according to new remarks from a senior Iranian official.



Based on translations from comments made by Mohammad-Javad Larijani, an international affairs assistant in the Iran's judiciary...

"Our government agreed not to stamp the passports of some of them because they were on transit flights for two hours, and they were resuming their flights without having their passports stamped. However their movements were under the complete supervision of the Iranian intelligence," Larijani was quoted as saying.

The remarks represent the first time senior Iranian officials have publicly admitted to aiding al Qaeda and playing a direct role in facilitating the 9/11 attacks.

...
Larijani admitted that Iranian officials did not stamp the passports of the al Qaeda militants in order to obfuscate their movements and prevent detection by foreign governments. Al Qaeda operative also were given safe refuge in Iran.
The OP's news link is over a year old. Why bring it up today?
