Obama slams Ahmadinejad for “hateful” 9/11 remarks

U.S. President Barack Obama on Friday condemned as hateful and inexcusable suggestions by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that the U.S. government may have been behind the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Ahmadinejad responded to the U.S. criticism of his remarks by saying that Washington and its allies “need to listen.” In an interview with the BBC Persian news service, Obama lashed out at Ahmadinejad for the latest of what the White House called a long list of outrageous comments that would deepen Tehran’s isolation from the international community. “It was offensive. It was hateful,” Obama said according to interview excerpts released by the White House.
