"It should be noted that Behbahani became a professor at the Iran University of Science and Technology in Tehran and interestingly the promoter of Ahmadinejad for his final PhD thesis. An Iranian MP had previously stated that Ahmadinejad’s PhD dissertation defence took place without even having his work scrutinised by anyone, and this made possible with the backing of his loyal professor Behbahani.
Bahbahani also has a history of lying about the official figures related to the Ministry under his supervision and also getting into confrontations with journalists over his falsification of data. He has also been accused of lying by many of his former colleagues, such as the former head of Iran’s air travel organisation who said that “Behbahani lies very easily!”"
Also please recall that Ahmadinejad obtained his PhD degree while serving as the "exemplary!" governor of Azerbaijan!! Some may remember that during presidential debates, Ahmadinejad lashed out at Mousavi's wife for having obtained her PhD while employed by the government--because according to Ahmadinejad it is not permitted and that a PhD requires a lot of hard work that cannot be done concurrently with holding a job!!
