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.

I will agree that a lot of the pieces to the story don't add up, and I'm still skeptical at times, but Ahmadinejad is just saying this to try and rally his own people.

Even if he's only making these statements to rally his people, this also gives the American people a point to start rallying

You know he said the holocaust was fake too.

But i think that 9/11 might have been an inside job

^^I was being sarcastic, hence the pic of Fred Armisen as Ahmadinejad. And yes, I know what he said about the holocaust. How was that proven to be fake? Pretty sure there are numerous sources that said he denied it happened...

Not true.  He thinks the numbers are inflated.
