Letter from President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to President George W. Bush

This letter from Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to U.S. president George W. Bush, obtained by cfr.org, is presumed to be the first contact from an Iranian president to a U.S. leader since the 1979 revolution in Iran. The 8-page letter's accuracy was confirmed by official sources, though an official translation is still forthcoming. In it, Amadinejad calls in to question U.S. actions in Iraq, its relationship with Israel, human rights and the role of religion in foreign policy matters, and the right to nuclear research.
