FOXNews.com - Obama: Ahmadinejad's Sept. 11 Statements 'Hateful'
President Obama slammed Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Friday for suggesting before the U.N. General Assembly that the Sept. 11 terror attacks were an inside job, describing the comments as "hateful" and inexcusable."
Obama personally responded to the Iranian leader's remarks in an interview with BBC Persian. He said the Iranian leader was once again demonstrating the difference between his regime and the "respectful and thoughtful" Iranian people.
Way to go president Obama:thumbs: I don't agree with him on much, but I am very pleased with his actions regarding Ahmedinejad and his hateful and inappropriate claims that the US was responsible for the 9/11 attacks. I completely agree with this and applaud the president on this issue."For Ahmadinejad to come to somebody else's country and then to suggest somehow that the worst tragedy that's been experienced here, (an) attack that killed 3,000 people, was somehow the responsibility of the government of that country, is something that defies not just common sense but basic sense -- basic senses of decency that aren't unique to any particular country," Obama said. "They're common to the entire world."
The president made passing reference to Iran in his U.N. address Thursday morning, urging the country to come clean on its nuclear program. Ahmadinejad, taking the podium in the afternoon, used his address to assail the "Zionist regime" and spread conspiracy theories about the 2001 attacks -- prompting the U.S. delegation to walk out.
