Iran's Ahmadinejad: Sept. 11 Attacks a 'Big Lie'

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.''

I guess Holocaust denial was only the first step in Iranian self-delusion.

I guess that means that the 'Great Satan' has no excuse and deserves to be attacked.
