The Iranian president is defending his remarks at the U.N. in which he claimed most people in the world believe the United States was behind the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks.

He also is challenging the United Nations to set up a commission to study the attacks.

"I did not pass judgment, but don't you feel that the time has come to have a fact finding committee," Mahmoud Ahmadinejad asked Friday during a news conference in a New York hotel.

He also lashed out at the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as an overreaction to the attacks.

The Americans should "not occupy the entire Middle East...bomb wedding parties...annihilate an
entire village just because one terrorist is hiding there."
