Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says the United States killed al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden as part of its propaganda to secure victory in the next US presidential election.
“The US killed bin Laden not to fight terrorism and not to eradicate groups it claims as terrorist but as [part of] its election propaganda to win people’s votes in the election,” said President Ahmadinejad in a meeting with participants in the International Conference on Global Alliance against Terrorism for a Just Peace (GAATJP) in the capital Tehran on Sunday.
The Iranian chief executive added that he has “precise information” that bin Laden was being held by US military for a long time before his death, IRNA reported.
“Former US president [George W. Bush] attacked our region to save the country’s economy and win the votes. He killed one million people and his successor [Barack Obama] pursues the same strategy,” he pointed out.
President Ahmadinejad noted that the arrogant system is in decline and said, “No change will be made in the unfair global order through the change of puppets.”
He emphasized that the United States and Israel would collapse and justice would be established in the world.
