How is it that a story comes out Monday claiming the US is contemplating a war plan for Iran, then a story Tuesday that claims Iran is threatening missile attacks against the US...and Wednesday's story? That NY mayor Michael Bloomberg might escort Iran's President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, to GROUND ZERO.
"...In a move that has stunned New York, the Bloomberg administration is in discussions to escort the Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, to ground zero during his visit to New York next week, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said today.
The Iranian mission to the U.N. made the request to the New York City Police Department and the Secret Service, which will jointly oversee security during the leader's two-day visit. Mr. Ahmadinejad is scheduled to arrive September 24 to speak to the U.N. General Assembly as the Security Council decides whether to increase sanctions against his country for its uranium enrichment program..." (source)
Why would this man, here in the US because of his direct defiance of the US and UN, be allowed to step foot on the gounds where the Twin towers once stood? A man that places no value on Western life, a man that is funding and commanding "insurgents" that are killing the men and women that signed up because of that tragic day...
Update (I'm updating before it's even posted): The NYPD has 9thankfully) denied Ahmadinejad's ground Zero request:
"...New York City, moving swiftly in the face of outrage from the White House to the political hustings to the Jewish community, is rejecting a request by President Ahmadinejad to lay a wreath at Ground Zero when the Iranian is in New York next week for a meeting of the United Nations..." (source)
Update II: Apparently Ahmadinejad's role in kidnapping Americans, denying the Holocaust or orchestrating the deaths of American troops in Iraq won't hinder Columbia university from having him speak at their campus on Monday. (source)
