Iran’s spiritual leader, “Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, condemned the American strikes [against Afghanistan on October 7, 2001]. ‘America is lying when it propagates the aims of its attacks against Afghanistan to be a struggle against terrorism,’ he said. ‘But this is not a struggle against terrorism. Why do they lie to the people of the world? Why don’t they express the true aim–power and domination.’ ”
