PRESS TV reports:
In response to a question by Press TV on Monday over the whistleblower website’s “leaks,” President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said “let me first correct you. The material was not leaked, but rather released in an organized way.”
“The US administration released them and based on them they pass judgment …. [The documents] have no legal value and will not have the political effect they seek,” the Iranian chief executive added at the press briefing in Tehran.
Ahmadinejad stressed that the Wikileaks “game” is “not worth commenting upon and that no one would waste their time reviewing them.”
Here, Ahmadinejad proves how little reality interests him. As with every outside threat, he attributes it to a malevolent US. Why scream conspiracy? Especially when the leaked material is being corroborated by diplomats across multiple nations? It’s a ludicrous notion. I wonder what Assange thinks of Ahmadinejad’s accusation?!
