Washington, May 6 (ANI): Toying with America's view on security seems to be the flavour of the month as far as Iran is concerned.
While Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told ABC "I heard that Usama bin Laden is in Washington, D.C.," State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley jocularly retorted, "Over the past few hours, we've done an intensive search here at the Department of State -- every nook and cranny, every rock, and we can safely report that Usama bin Laden is not here."
Asked if a check had been done of the greater Washington area, Fox News quoted Crowley, relieved by the laughter elicited from the comment, as saying no, but that he was "pretty confident" Ahmadinejad is inaccurate.
Pressed about reports that bin Laden is in Iran, Ahmadinejad told ABC, "Maybe you know, but I don't know." (ANI)
