NBC News' Ann Curry traveled to Tehran for an exclusive interview with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. It is the president's first interview since the disputed June election. Curry summed up the summer-long debate on the political atmosphere in Iran by asking Ahmadinejad one key question: "Did you steal this election?"
Ahmadinejad responded by asserting that any person in Iran is free to express his or her opinion, and that he does not "see any problems."
The interview will air Thursday, September 17, on "NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams" and Friday, September 18 on "Today." MSNBC will air an hour-long special "Iran's President Speaks: The Ann Curry Interview," Sunday at 1 PM.
