Former US President Bill Clinton says Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is "lashing out at the world" right now and that it's important for US leaders to figure out why. Clinton suggested Tuesday that Ahmadinejad's actions, including the fact he again has denied the Holocaust, are because of the international criticism he got after violence-marred elections. Clinton said his actions call into question what the American strategy should be.

Appearing on NBC's "Today" show, he said "the question is whether this is a strategy in play and whether we can find some way" to engage the Iranian leader.
