Is that a newly constructed tower over Ground Zero or is it just a big head? Ahmadinejad's bloated ego may be the only thing towering over Ground Zero in the days to come, should certain people get their way.
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.We can thank the unAmerican mayor Bloomberg for considering this genius idea. I remember one of my conservative professors telling me we shouldn't be so open minded that our brains fall out. We're now apparently so open that not only have our brains, but our pride has fallen out.
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.
Update part 2: Not good:
A law enforcement source says the Iranian mission to the United Nations has informed the Secret Service that the Iranian president intends to visit Ground Zero Monday at 10 a.m.
The source says regardless of the NYPD's rejection of the request for a Ground Zero tour, Iran's president and his entourage will be accompanied by a Secret Service protective detail, a detail provided to all heads of state when they visit the United States.
The Iranian mission to the United Nations made the initial request to the NYPD and the Secret Service, who will jointly oversee security during the president's two-day visit.
Apparently, President Bush only cares about invading other countries, not other countries invading us.
