Ahmadinejad Calls September 11 Attacks a 'Suspicious Event'
TEHRAN, Iran — Wednesday, April 16, 2008
Iran’s hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has cast doubt over the US version of the September 11 attacks, calling it a pretext to invade Afghanistan and Iraq. He said: “Four or five years ago, a suspicious event occurred in New York.“A building collapsed and they said that 3,000 people had been killed but never published their names.”
He claimed that under this pretext, “they (the US) attacked Afghanistan and Iraq and since then, a million people have been killed only in Iraq.” President Ahmadinejad made these claims today in Qom, 100 miles south-west of Tehran. (FoxNews)
