Ahmadinejad: “I heard that Osama bin Laden is in Washington, D.C. Because he was a previous partner of Mr. Bush. They were colleagues in fact, in the old days. They worked together. Mr. Bin Laden never cooperated with Iran, but he cooperated with Mr. Bush.”
The Iranian President shared that little piece of intelligence with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos during their 30 minute talk, Tuesday morning.
It didn’t take long to get contentious, starting with my first question: “You called Secretary of State Clinton an ‘enemy’ of Iran. Do you consider President Obama an enemy of Iran as well?”
It took multiple follow-ups for me to get Ahmadinejad’s answer: that he draws a distinction between Clinton and her boss.
“Mrs. Clinton is interested in speedily moving relations with Iran to the point of a clash. Based on the information we possess, Mr. Obama does not have such an opinion,” he said.
Too bizarre….in more ways than one.
