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 theWorld 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 inNew 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.

Just as a warning, Ahmadinejad is probably the most misquoted politician in the world.

I'll wait for confirmation of this story from other sources before I buy it.

What truth? You don't think Ahmadinejad has some vested interest in portraying the US as a bogeyman that kills its own people?  What makes you think he actually "knows" anything about what really happened on 9/11?

You must not know how many conspiracy theorists are on here.

I think more and more people (on and off NT) are getting into conspiracies because it's so hard to hide the "truth" now since practically everybody is sharing information at the speed of light.

I still laugh when people yell about how he said Israel should be wiped off the face of the earth. Oh, American media.


Atthe time, he also told Iranian state TV the attacks were "a result ofmismanaging and inhumane managing of the world by the U.S,"
If he had stuck by this claim he'd look a lot better because that's the truth.
