A unique interview in the US this week between Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and ABC’s George Stephanopoulos:
Stephanopoulos: If you did know that Osama bin Laden was in Tehran, would you show him hospitality? Would you expel him? Would you arrest him?
Ahmadinejad: I heard that Osama bin Laden is in Washington DC.
Stephanopoulos: No, you didn’t.
Ahmadinejad: Yes, I did. He’s there. Because he was a previous partner of Mr Bush. They were colleagues in fact in the old days. You know that. They were in the oil business together. They worked together. Mr bin Laden never cooperated with Iran but he cooperated with Mr Bush.
Stephanopoulos: But you deny categorically that he’s in Tehran today? He is not, Osama bin Laden is not in Tehran today?
Ahmadinejad: Rest assured that he’s in Washington. I think there’s a high chance he’s there.
Stephanopoulos: I don’t agree. Thank you for your time, Mr President.
