Ahmadinejad Sorry For Traffic, Not 9/11 Comments

Reiterates U.S. Gov't Responsible For Sept. 11; Praises NYPD

NEW YORK (CBS 2) — Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is standing behind his claims that the United States was behind the 9/11 attacks — a statement President Barack Obama said is “hateful.”

CBS 2’s Marcia Kramer attended a 90-minute press conference held by the incendiary official on Friday.

There were bomb dogs and barricades and enough protection agents to fill a Broadway theater. And since this was street theater, the NYPD stopped traffic for the arrival of Ahmadinejad’s motorcade.

But would he apologize for his traffic-stopping comments about 9/11? No way.

“I did not pass judgment, but don’t you feel it is time to have a fact-finding committee,” Ahmadinejad said.

The Iranian leader wants the fact-finding committee to investigate several of his of the Wall theories about why 9/11 happened, like the one he made at the UN General Assembly.

“Some segments within the U.S. government orchestrated the attacks to reverse the declining economy and its grips on the Middle East in order to save the Zionist regime,” he said.

To which President Obama replied, “It was offensive. It was hateful and particularly for him to make the statement here in Manhattan, just a little north of ground zero, where families lost their loved, ones was inexcusable.”

And get this: in trying to explain his 9/11 theories, Ahmadinejad said his real concern is for the poor American taxpayer, who after the terror attacks has been shelling out billions for the war on terror.

“We are trying to defend the rights of the American people here so their money is not used to kill people in Iraq and Afghanistan,” Ahmadinejad said.

President Obama was so upset with the Iranian leader that he gave an interview to BBC Persian TV in an attempt to go around Ahmadinejad and reach his people directly. He also wanted to explain why the United States felt it had to impose sanctions on the country.

“Iran has not been able to convince the international community that its nuclear program is peaceful,” Obama said.

While President Ahmadinejad refused to apologize for the 9/11 comments, he did want New Yorkers to know he is sorry for the traffic jams he’s caused and he praised the NYPD for making it easier for him to get around.

    I do not believe people are evil by nature. But beliefs and brain washing make them do evil things.

    if people follow talmud by word by word they will become evil , if people follow koran word by word , they become evil as well.

    Religion always do evil thing eventually for its survival.

    I do not thinkj there is greater good possible. It is always evil.

  • DanTe

    This is what nathan/CBS constantly CENSOR in the name of Constitutional Rights. Especially if these Facts appears first (not buried in the noise):

    FACT: Everywhere where there are mu-Slimes, sh-!t happens.

    China — sh-!t happens
    (suicide bombers that kill little children and run amok with metal pipes in the streets)

    India — sh-!t happens
    (mu-slimes burned 100s of hindus alive in packed trains and burned villagers alive while they slept)

    Middle East — sh-!t happens
    (suicide bombers that kill little children)

    Russia — sh-!t happens
    (suicide bombers that kill women and children in crowded theaters)

    South East Asia — sh-!t happens
    (mu-slime thugs who kidnap teachers, school children, nurses, priests for ransom, than murder them all)

    Europe — sh-!t happens
    (suicide bombers that kill little children)

    USA — 9/11 happened

    Goes to reason, no mu-slimes, no sh-!t.
    All these camel turds understand is violence and lies anyway. I say we oblige them by killing them all and than lie about how sorry we are.

    Islam. It’s a disease. And like any other infestations of boils, pox and pestilence, it should be eradicated. You don’t talk to diseases. You eradicate them like you did polio.

    And some bleeding heart imbecile here will post that it’s just a few individuals that are murderous, just like any other society. But than conveniently forgetting about the Fact that it happens worldwide and by a LOT MORE than just a few individuals. And they also continues to blank out of their empty heads the worldwide mu-slime jubilee celebrations as people burned on 9/11.

  • alex

    Ahmadinejad is correct. The problem is real truth is not for common people consumption. Even though lots of people went with attacking twin towers to control over rest of the world , the real power struggle is control the europe and american people and put them under strict police control. real super power is Israel. The capital is tel aviv. All other people are working for israel including american president. American army is a gentile army to do israel’s dirty job and get killed for israel’s interests.

    This is happening for a while. The problem is no one can stop it. JFK try to do it. Mozzad killed him. Same thing will happen if any one oppose.

    So is it doom or gloom? no. But it will be once people wake up and smell what is happening…then israel follow talmud laws and wipe out all non jews with nukes. That is the end game.

  • alex

    Even this comment section is controlled. They banned my previous 2 comments. I understand that the people are afraid. You can say jesus evil , allah is evil but you can’t say israel is evil. There you go.

    Why so much fear in speaking the truth. America allow koran to be burn but will they even allow torah or talmud to be burnt ? I doubt that. They will put them in jail first.

    for me all humans are same. Jews are nothing special than any other human. if jews can criticize koran and bible but non jews can’t criticize talmud and torah.

    where is fair justice. Not in america for sure. Free speech is bogus.

  • Iranian Comment

    I’m an Iranian. I don’t like ahmadinejad but sometimes he says something that is forbidden to hearing. In the end i say the politics is dirty and for politician like ahmadinejad or Obama, the people are not IMPORTANT like Our.

  • Armando T.

    I live among Muslims and oh Airhead Nathan, I tell you outright, you are telling a lie. You should have seen and witness the Maguindanao massacre.Enough of this craziness. The more I read comments here the more I feel like I am turning into one of them. Is there a group called Christian terrorists? Anyone out there who knows? Kindly contact me. I am interested.

    • Roger

      There are plenty of Christian terrorist groups. There are also Jewish terrorist groups, and pretty much groups for every faith, but the media knows what type of news Americans want to hear, so they’re never brought up.

  • meysam

    احمدي نژاد دوستت داريم

  • Airhead nathan @ CBS

    Muslims are your friends. They never lie. They are a religion of peace.

  • Armando T.

    Oh, Sid. Who was ever opposed to finding the truth? Tons of evidence already support the truth that we have in hand. What you probably want is for the American government to spend millions to turn the crazy lies of people like Ahmadijihad to truth.

    • jp

      Actually, all of the “evidence” has been labelled as classified and has never been made public. When the US first blamed Bin Laden. Bin Laden said he didn’t do it. America told Afghanistan to turn Bin Laden over. The Taliban said, “Sure, not a problem. If he committed this terrible act then he deserves to be brought to trial”…”Just show us some evidence”. The US said we don’t need to show you shhhh. And the war in Afghanistan started.

      I am in no way saying a conspiracy exists, God knows best.

  • Sid Barret

    Could it be people like “Jay” that Ahmedi Najad was refering to?

  • Greg

    He’s absolutely right in most everything he says. That the US government is reacting this way is understandable and predictable, they have to hide the real facts from the general public so they’re making a devil out of Ahmadinejad who in fact is right. It’s the US and Israeli government that should be imprisoned and executed!! (certain elements).

  • Jay

    He needs a bullet in his head….plain and simple. If you don’t like the USA, then carry your ass back to where you came from. We never asked you to come here.

    Send a nuke over to Iran and lets call it a day….

  • cbs-no.brains-just.propaganda

    Why he has to apologize for 9/11? Is that him who did it?

    The real jerks are those who try to blame him for 9/11

  • Sid Barret

    What’s wrong with an independent inquiry to find the truth? Surely the truth can’t hurt ? Why the opposition to finding the truth?

  • ali

    he is a crazy man with his own theory , this is not iranian leader
    they never think and speak like him

  • Armando T.

    Comments like that is just as serious as his open declaration of his vision,mission and goal to exterminate the nation of Israel and is a very, very alarming proof that nukes are very, very dangerous in the hands of Iran. Shall we stomach such a man here in our soil. If it was an American issuing a similar abusive comment against Iran in Iranian soil, what chance would he has that he will get out of Iran alive?

    • Armando T.

      mahammad adel is a muslim and is very loyal to a co-muslim. We should learn from him. We are Americans and we should be loyal to our co-americans. Otherwise, America will be trampled all over by the terrorists and their supporters and sympathizers.

  • mohammad adel

    Sometimes even an idiot could be right you know… why are all the facts about 9/11 so untouchable and unspeakable??? why is it only and only the CNN’s version all the time??

  • meshine

    Ahmadinejad is not the only person with that crazy conspiracy theory stuff. There are some American citizens that think that the Bush administration had something to do with 9/11.

  • Rich Wealthy

    He is brave man.
    U.S shoud recept he’s sermon.

  • Mohammad Adel

    actually there are facts about 9/11 which are way more solid than an imaginary outlaw named Bin-Ladan which justifies a whole governments chase after him for the past decade…

  • Bert Saru

    when people like them come to the US .. they must be issued conditional visas. He can make all his crazy comments inside the UN and not in US soil. The media should stop pandering to this kind of nuts.Haven’t we forgot how they treated ourstaff.

  • stick

    one bomb is all thats needed!

  • Luke

    Actually he is dead on, especially his point about the American tax payer, we have spent not billions, trillions of dollars on those two wars that were started because of an event that at best was allowed to happen by our government and at worst (and more likely) orchestrated by elements within our own government. It is called
    False Flag Terrorism and has been a common tactic used by governments for centuries to drum up support for war, genocide, and tyranny.

    • Frank

      Sir: I Would also bet that you believe that earth is flat, that we did not go to moon and that holocaust never happen.

    This guy is a total jerk and does not need to ever be in the USA! How dare he blame the USA for the 9/11 devastating tragedy.He knows whoi s to blame.
