Iran’s Ahmadinejad: Sept. 11 attacks a ‘big lie’

Ahmadinejad(MIAMI HERALD)   TEHRAN, Iran — Iran’s hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Saturday called the official version of the Sept. 11 attacks a “big lie” used by the U.S. as an excuse for the war on terror, state media reported.

Ahmadinejad’s comments, made during an address to Intelligence Ministry staff, come amid escalating tensions between the West and Tehran over its disputed nuclear program. They show that Iran has no intention of toning itself down even with tighter sanctions looming because of its refusal to halt uranium enrichment.

“September 11 was a big lie and a pretext for the war on terror and a prelude to invading Afghanistan,” Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying by state TV. He called the attacks a “complicated intelligence scenario and act.”

The Iranian president has questioned the official U.S. version of the Sept. 11 attacks before, but this is the first time he ventured to label it a “big lie.”

In 2007, New York officials rejected Ahmadinejad’s request to visit the World Trade Center site while he was in the city for a U.N. meeting. The president also sparked an uproar when he said during a lecture in New York that the causes and conditions that led to the attacks, as well as who orchestrated them, still need to be examined.

At the time, he also told Iranian state TV the attacks were “a result of mismanaging and inhumane managing of the world by the U.S,” and that Washington was using Sept. 11 as an excuse to attack others.

He has also questioned the Sept. 11 death toll of around 3,000, claiming the Americans never published the victims’ names.

On the 2007 anniversary of the attacks, the names of 2,750 victims killed in New York were read aloud at a memorial ceremony.

  • I agree with the President of Iran that 9/11 was staged to start wars against foreign nations. It is Israel that orchestrated 9/11 in order to make America enter into illegal wars for the benefit of Israel. Israel is a parasite on America and sooner we remove our ties to this criminal nation the better it will be for America. These illegal and unnecessary wars and invasions have bankrupted our nation in addition to getting thousands of our sokdiers killed and another tens of thousands injured while also killing millions of Arabs. The Christian Right is shamefully on the side of Israel because of the greed, ego-centricity and timidity of the Christian pastors. Killing Muslims or any other group does not seem Christian and this is an abomination.

    If Israel strikes Iran that will be the end of Israel which it deserves. Please read the book “Spy Trade” by Grant Smith and books by Jeff Gates and Michael Collins Piper and Texe Marrs.
