New York, NY (UPSI) – Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was arrested this morning outside Ground Zero, the site of the attack on the World Trade Center in what was described as an FBI sting operation. Ahmadinejad was caught attending a covert visit to the shrine, and FBI agents are reporting that three unnamed MoveOn members have been netted in the undercover operation.
Dana Perino, White House press secretary stated that this morning was a victory in the worldwide terror war. “Ahmadinejad was caught attempting to smuggle in a huge donation to this infamous “political action committee” that had agreed to escort him to the hallowed ground of the World Trade Center collapse. The FBI caught wind of the plot and we pounced.”
Iranian officials immediately decried the US action, insisting on the president’s release. A spokesperson for the Iranian embassy insisted that Ahmadinejad was contacted earlier this morning and offered what was described as a State Department sanctioned tour of the site when he was taken into custody by FBI agents.
A spokesperson for MoveOn.org issued a statement disavowing any knowledge of a meeting with the Iranian firebrand. “We were just informed that one of our usual wealthy donors was insisting on a meeting place change this time. Our members simply cooperated with the FBI as they were arrested.”
The White House refused further comment insisting that investigations were still ongoing.
