The Supreme Leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said this week that Iran has 100 documents that prove the United States is behind a “curtain of terror” in his country.
Iranian Supreme National Security Council Secretary Saeed Jalili is due to release a number of the documents detailing alleged U.S. involvement in acts of terror against the Islamic Republic today, according to Iranian state news agency Press TV.
Iranian officials reportedly claim that once Tehran publicizes the evidence in its possession, the United States’ government will be toppled from within by Americans united against the acts of terror.
“America tried to exert pressure on Iran and rescue itself from the Wall Street movement and its problems by the absurd terrorist scenario,” Khamenei said, referring to an alleged Iranian plot to assassinate the Saudi Arabian ambassador on American soil. “The course of events have changed in the world and by the grace of God the fight of virtue, with the pioneering of Iran, has started against the pharaoh of hegemony and will continue to its final collapse.”
The comments come as President Barack Obama continues to call for tighter sanctions on Iran and not ruling out military action against the country, according to Reuters.
