Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad lashed out at critics within his own hard-line camp on Friday, denying any rift with Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who he said was like a father. "Some in recent days have portrayed the relationship between the leader and the administration as in doubt, they tried to imply distance and rift," he said. In a speech which was aired on state television, Ahmadinejad went on to say, "What they do not understand is that the relationship between us and the supreme leader goes beyond politics and administration. It is based on kindness, on ideology, it is like that of a father and son."
