The Ahmadinejad 60 Minutes Interview

If you missed it (like I did) you can read about it here. I'll say this about the man: He's a cunning fellow, despite a tendency to be a little, well, disingenuous. One quote:

"President Bush said — vowed — he will not allow Iran to develop a nuclear weapon. You believe it?" Wallace asked.

"Basically we are not looking for — working for the bomb," the president said. "The problem that President Bush has is in his mind he wants to solve everything with bombs. The time of the bomb is in the past. It's behind us. Today is the era of thoughts, dialogue and cultural exchanges."

Somehow I am not convinced. John McIntyre of Real Clear Politics has more.

And get a load of this. The Iranian thug has fans on the left.

"The time of the bomb is in the past?" I suppose he means bio - weapons are coming? Or was he just referring to the usual practice of throat cutting?

Why would Mike Wallace give this scum the credibility of an interview? Isolate him!

Just in time for the cease-fire, irrefutable proof of the Iranian and Syrian weapons connection from the Telegraph . But what a headline! Leaves little doubt about who these people seem to be rooting for in all their journalistic "objectivity."

"Fans on the left?"

It was one dumb comment in a 70+ comment thread by one person on one web site.

Kind of a broad generalization, don't you think?
