Will Obama and Ahmadinejad issue a joint statement about the 9/11 attacks?

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Saturday dismissed the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States as a "big lie:
"September 11 was a big lie and a pretext for the war on terror and a prelude to invading Afghanistan," Ahmadinejad said...

In 2007..., Ahmadinejad... questioned the Sept. 11 death toll of around 3,000, claiming the Americans never published the victims' names.

[However], on the 2007 anniversary of the attacks, the names of 2,750 victims killed in New York were [indeed] read aloud at a memorial ceremony.
In 2007, Student Scholars for 9/11 Truth founder, Justin Martell, approached Barack Obama and asked him if he supported reopening an investigation into the 9/11 attacks.

Obama replied: "I think that we need to investigate a whole range of options, although I have to admit that, some of the issues that I understand you guys have raised I'm not as 'entirely confident' are the case."

Question: Since Obama has indicated in the past that he'd be willing to meet with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, would he also be willing to issue a joint statement with the Iranian President about the 9/11 attacks?

Although Obama and Ahmadinejad have slightly different views on the matter - the Iranian President is 100% certain that 9/11 was an inside job and Obama is not 'entirely confident' about that - I'm sure they can come up with some kind of joint statement, questioning the facts surrounding 9/11, that would be agreeable to both of them.

Ironically, in 2008 [or 2007], when former President Bill Clinton was confronted by a couple of hecklers who accused the US government of orchestrating the 9/11 attacks, he replied: "Inside job? How dare you!"

Obviously, Bill Clinton does not share the same views as Mahmoud Ahmadinejad with regards to the 9/11 attacks - which is why, unlike Mr. Obama, Clinton felt compelled to berate the 9/11 truthers for their outlandish and crude remarks.

But that is beside the point. What is significant, however, is that President Obama and his Iranian counterpart are both skeptical about the so-called facts surrounding the 9/11 attacks. Hence, the aforementioned subject would be a good starting point in any future discussions to be held between the two like-minded leaders.

Let's hope these two great leaders meet soon, so that they can reveal the truth to us once and for all.
