Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has denied the Holocaust, now says that the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States were “a big fabrication” that the American government used as an excuse to invade Iraq and Afghanistan.

Iran’s government-controlled media quoted Ahmadinejad on Saturday as saying the attacks were an "intelligence scenario and act [and] "a result of mismanagement and inhumane management of the world by the United States.”

He explained that the attacks were staged and carried out by Israeli or American intelligence agents. Ahmadinejad said last September, on Iran’s annual anti-Israel day, that the Holocaust “is a lie based on an unprovable and mythical claim.”

More than 3,000 people were killed in the 9/11 suicide airplane attacks on New York City's Twin Towers, which collapsed afterwards, and dozens of others died in an airplane attack on the Pentagon and on a plane that crash-landed in an open field,  thanks to the courage of its passengers who attacked the hijackers,  before the terrorists were able to carry out their plan to explode it on the White House.
