Someone impersonating a head of state made it all the way past United Nations security and addressed some of the member states on who was responsible for 9/11:
The U.S. and several European delegations walked out of the U.N. speech of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Thursday after he said most people believe the U.S. government was behind the Sept. 11 terror attacks in order to assure Israel's survival.
In his speech to the annual General Assembly, Ahmadinejad said it was mostly U.S. government officials who believed a terrorist group was behind the suicide hijacking attacks that brought down New York's World Trade Center and hit the Pentagon.
Another theory, he said, was "that some segments within the U.S. government orchestrated the attack to reverse the declining American economy, and its grips on the Middle East, in order to save the Zionist regime" - his way of characterizing Israel.
"The majority of the American people as well as most nations and politicians around the world agree with this view," Ahmadinejad told the 192-nation assembly.
I suppose you could make the argument that Ahmadinejad is no more loony than some of the other "world leaders" who address the crowd of overfed, underperforming peacocks that make up the bulk of membership in the General Assembly. Robert Mugabe and Kim Il Jong come to mind immediately. I'm sure you could think of a few others.
But really, this guy's act is getting stale. And his new material is a flop. He should have tried it out first on the lefty nutcases at Columbia U. or someplace equally cracked. Because when you come right down to it, the Iranian just isn't ready for prime time.
