US Walks Out On ‘Truther’ Ahmadinejad

From an outraged (at the walkout) Associated Press:

US walks out on Ahmadinejad’s UN speech

By Ali Akbar Dareini [sic], Associated Press Writer Thu Sep 23, 2010

UNITED NATIONS – Iran’s hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad provoked yet another controversy Thursday saying a majority of people in the United States and around the world believe the American government staged the Sept. 11 terror attacks in an attempt to assure Israel’s survival.

The provocative comments prompted the U.S. delegation to walk out of Ahmadinejad’s U.N. speech, where he also blamed the U.S. as the power behind U.N. Security Council sanctions against Iran for its refusal to halt uranium enrichment, a technology that can be used as fuel for electricity generation or to build nuclear weapons.

Delegations from all 27 European Union nations followed the Americans out along with representatives from Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Costa Rica, an EU diplomat said

There are currently 192 ‘member nations’ at the United Nations. So what were the other 161 delegations thinking?

By the way, this was Mr. Ahmadinejad’s second address to the UN this week. What other leader gets such a forum so regularly? Why is that?

The Iranian leader — who has in the past cast doubt over the U.S. version of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks — also called for setting up an independent fact-finding U.N. team to probe the attacks. That, he said, would keep the terror assault from turning into what he has called a sacred issue like the Holocaust where "expressing opinion about it won’t be banned".

And, of course, Mr. Ahmadinejad doesn’t believe the Holocaust happened either.

Ahmadinejad did not explain the logic behind blaming the U.S. for the terror attacks but said there were three theories:

That a "powerful and complex terrorist group" penetrated U.S. intelligence and defenses, which is advocated "by American statesmen."

— "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 also to save the Zionist regime. The majority of the American people as well as other nations and politicians agree with this view."

After Ahmadinejad uttered those words, two American diplomats stood and walked out without listening to the third theory: That the attack was the work of "a terrorist group but the American government supported and took advantage of the situation." …

Ahmadinejad said the U.S. used the Sept. 11 attacks as a pretext to invade Afghanistan and Iraq, killing hundreds of thousands of people. He argued that the U.S., instead, should have "designed a logical plan" to punish the perpetrators and not occupy two independent states and shed so much blood

Mr. Ahmadinejad is so ‘out there,’ he is starting to sound like a Democrat.

But at least he didn’t ask why we haven’t captured Bin Laden?

    Exactly the kind of thing you would have heard had the 9/11 murderers been tried in NYC. Only our tax dollars would have subsidized the rhetoric.

    Honestly, when this slug looks into the audience and sees people walking out on him, I think he gets a woodie. I truly believe that’s how he gauges his effect. He’s nothing more than a glorified Internet board flamer in this forum.

    The sad thing is he likely has two years to build his bombs unmolested as Obama will do nothing but bump his gums and Mahmoud knows it.

      Our tax dollars subsidize everything that goes on in the UN. Not to mention the security that is necessary to keep this sub-human piece of trash safe while he’s tooling around in NYC.

      The only joke bigger than the UN is our lord-god-man-boy-king and his regime. In fact as the regime and time go on, it gets harder and harder to decide who is the bigger threat to America. Ahminforjihad, or the Oblamer himself?

    Funny how much this sounds like crap we have heard form our own media and politicians. I think the fact that he said this serves as the best proof imaginable that our wars are not only justified, but worth carrying on even further.

    More political nonsense.

    Getting up and walking out does NOTHING. Dragging him away kicking and screaming IS effective.

    Every time Ahmadinejad says something, it seems our gov’t has NO CLEVER COMEBACK……EVER!

    You don’t win an argument by calling your opposition crazy or offensive….of course it’s offensive!

    911:
    ~2 people can’t even keep a secret, and you expect 100s or more, people in the U.S. gov’t to keep quiet if it was an inside job?
    ~Why did ARABS take credit for the massacre, and ululate all over the streets when it happened?
    ~If the inside job was to reverse the declining American economy, why does our economy suck so bad now?

    Israel:
    ~Why can’t the Arab countries absorb the Palestinians and end the conflict? They have MUCH more land than the little sliver that is Israel. Move the dome to Saudi Arabia while your at it!

    Nuclear Power:
    ~You are one of the richest oil producers on Earth, yet you never thought of investing in a refinery? How can anyone take you seriously when you threaten the globe WITHOUT nuclear weapons?

  4. finebammer59 says:

    Yeah, remember the video of Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank celebrating after our towers fell???

    The same one’s Ahmawoopteedoo has been backing for years.

    I’ll always believe one of the reasons we invaded Iraq was to surround what I think Bush/Cheney saw as the next threat, Iran.

    But that’s just me.

      Me too!
      Putting Iran between the Hammer and the Anvil.

    He’s a nut.

    But, as a threat to the world, he is a far far far distant second to the nut in the White House.

    Amazing how much one can learn about our own President and Democratic party from the mouths of little dictators.

    “U.S. government orchestrated the attack…to save the Zionist regime.”

    The guy is anti-American and hates Jews, especially with his comments on the Holocaust. But our President only noticed one hateful bit in that speech. Remember how Obama responded? He condemned the conspiracy theory that 9/11 was an inside job as “unacceptable.” But he said nothing about the other hate, the rabid antisemitism. It seems like Obama has no desire to defend our ally or people of non-Muslim faiths, but ask him about “Islamophobia” and I’m sure he has a lot to whine about.

    Also an interesting tidbit: earlier this week, Obama’s speech on Mideast Peace came on a Jewish holiday, when the Israeli diplomats were absent. Yet the “Palestinians” and and neighboring Islamic countries were there to cheer when Obama said he wanted an independent Palestine (I wonder if the mention of a “secure Israel” drew boos). Why would these people schedule a peace meeting when the Israelis are absent?

    So I think there’s probably an anti-Israel and even antisemitic strain to the Obama administration. How can our President blast one kook burning the Quran but not say a word about a dictator who participates in Holocaust denial?

    True reason Obama ordered the highest security detail for Ahmadinejad so was so he could hook up privately with his VBBF.
