"Ahmadinejad son accuses Hashemi of fabrication" (Mehr News)

This is a little heard to follow, but fascinating:
A son of Iran’s ex-president has accused Hashemi of inventing his memoirs of Imam Khomeini.

Mehr News quoted that Mehdi Ahmadinejad, ex-president’s son, on his webpage derided Hashemi’s account of Imam Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic and the first leader of the Revolution.

Mehdi Ahmadinejad posted on his webpage an evaluation of Hashemi’s memoirs where Hashemi Rafsanjani related that Imam (Khomeini) would seek to remove the motto of ‘death to America’ at that time.

“I would petition to the respected figure who said that Imam agreed to remove the motto, to say what he would remember about Imam, otherwise we would be told that Imam did not mean America was Great Satan, but he meant that ‘how mischievous child would America be!’

Yeah, a bit hard to get to the bottom of that one.
