Pepe Escobar -more questions on 9/11, A new Afghan Road, Iran Bullish

THE ROVING EYE : More questions on 9/11 - Last week, on the eighth anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks on New York and Washington, Asia Times Online posed 50 unanswered questions about the immense, mysterious 9/11 riddle. Due to overwhelming reader response, here's a follow-up with 20 more questions - with a hat-tip to all readers who joined the debate. - Pepe Escobar

A dangerous new Afghan road opens - The North Atlantic Treaty Organization has blueprints for several new supply routes through Central Asian countries into the north of Afghanistan as an alternative to the current - and vulnerable - main route via Pakistan. The Taliban-led war, though, is spreading from the south to the until recently relatively harmonious northern belt. A new strategic front is opening up. - Derek Henry Flood

Iran bullish ahead of nuclear talks - Iran's negotiators heading to Istanbul to meet representatives of the "Iran Six" have a renewed sense of confidence. Not only is there no evidence to corroborate claims of Tehran's nuclear weapons drive, but there's fresh cynicism in the international community regarding Iran's past alleged "weaponization studies". - Kaveh L Afrasiabi
