Today, on Iranian state television, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad labeled the official version of the attacks on September 11th, a "big lie." He said that the official version of the attacks was used as a reason for the United States to invade Afghanistan.
"September 11 was a big lie and a pretext for the war on terror and a prelude to invading Afghanistan," he told Intelligence Ministry staff.
In 2007 he was not permitted by New York officials to visit the World Trade Center, while in town for a United Nations conference.
He also added that the events of 9/11 occurred as "a result of mismanaging and inhumane managing of the world by the U.S."
These are very strong words.
