The full text of this week’s message follows:

Once again, Iran’s president came to New York to speak at the UN.

Once again, he appeared on American media.

And once again, he expressed some real whoppers, including the mind-boggling claim that 9/11 was an American plot.

Here are a few others compiled by the independent website Tehran Bureau, which works with the PBS TV show “Frontline”:

“Iran is the freest country in the world,” said Iran’s leader.

Not true, says Tehran Bureau.

“No one is tortured in Iran,” said Iran’s leader.

Not true, says Tehran Bureau.

“I’m not in favor of killing anyone,” said Iran’s leader.

Not true, says Tehran Bureau.

“Sanctions against Iran are not important,” said Iran’s leader.

Not true, says Tehran Bureau.

“No one has been imprisoned for taking part in demonstrations,” said Iran’s leader.

Not true, says Tehran Bureau.

Thanks to Tehran Bureau, as well as PBS Frontline, for exposing the sad truth about today’s Iran.
