Washington - Is Osama bin Laden hiding under the noses of the United States government in Washington, DC? The Iranian President says so in an interview on Good Morning America.
Is Osama Bin Laden hiding out in Iran?
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad repeatedly avoided the question during an interview with George Stephanopoulos on "Good Morning, America."
"Is Osama Bin Laden in Tehran?" Stephanopoulos asked.
"Your question is laughable," Ahmadinejad replied.
When pressed, the Iranian president said, "Our position is quite clear. Some journalists have said Bin Laden is in Iran. These words don't have legal value. Our position towards Afghanistan and against terrorism is quite clear."
"Rest assured that he's in Washington. I think there's a high chance he's there," Ahmadinejad said sarcastically in an interview to ABC News when asked to comment on reports that bin Laden is hiding in Iran for years.
His sarcastic quip came when asked to respond to a claim in new documentary "Feathered Cocaine," that bin Laden, the Al-Qaeda leader, has been living in Tehran, Iran, for years according to The Siasat Daily, Islamic and World News.
The question of Bin Laden's location was sparked by a recent documentary that stated he was living comfortably in Tehran. The famous falconer Alan Parrot claimed in "Feathered Cocaine" that the terrorist leader - who is also an avid falcon hunter - has been living in Iran since around 2003.

A claim that has been flatly denied on multiple occasions by the government of Iran.
When challenged by Stephanopoulos, the Iranian president explained his rationale to ABC by saying that "Bin Laden was a previous partner of Mr. Bush. They were colleagues in fact in the old days. You know that. They were in the oil business together. They worked together," he said.
