Daily Mail: French publisher apologises for history textbook suggesting 9/11 was 'probably orchestrated by the CIA'

* French undergrad textbook suggested debunked 9/11 conspiracies were true
* History of 20th Century in Flash Cards referenced CIA involvement in attacks
* The book said that September 11 was 'undoubtedly orchestrated by the CIA'
* Ellipses publisher apologised and said the reference to CIA would be removed

A French publisher has apologised after a history textbook suggested the 9/11 terror attacks were 'undoubtedly orchestrated by the CIA'.

The book called History of the 20th Century in Flash Cards, is aimed at undergraduate students who study at France's elite 'grandes ecoles' universities.

Written by Jean-Pierre Rocher, a teacher of history and geography and a graduate of the Sciences Po university in Paris, the work was published in November last year.

The phrase about the debunked conspiracy theory about the CIA's involvement in the atrocity in New York in 2001 that saw nearly 3,000 people killed only came to light last week.

I wonder if CNN will interview or comment on this amateurism. The "news"caster and the "author" would have much in common.
