Post Interview With Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

In an exclusive wide-ranging hour and a half interview with Newsweek's Lally Weymouth and editors from the Washington Post, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad discussed his upcoming talks with the United States, his opinion of President Obama, his continued denial of the Holocaust as well as the U.S.-led effort in Afghanistan, which he views as doomed. In it he previewed his offer to purchase enriched uranium from the United States for medicinal purposes, which proliferation experts say is likely a non-starter. Excerpts can be read here.

"Excerpts" can be read here.

And where might one find the "complete" interview?

Sorry to be cynical, but I couldn't listen to Rahm Emmanuel's interview w/ Charlie Rose last night as discussion of Iran's "nuclear issue" did not distinguish between a nuclear weapons program (which Iran does not have" and the legitimate pursuit of nuclear knowledge.

If we were not continuing the Bush policies of demonizing those countries and leaders who challenge our resource predation, one might be less cynical, but unfortunately that does not appear to be the case.

Until then, no "selective/ excerpts" for me.

As usual, Israel walks out. It's beginning to be irritating how any critique of Israel will not be listened to, dismissed as "anti-Semitic." Sooner or later the anti-Semite card is going to get old.

Odd that so many protesters are coming to call for the leaders there to be ignored for bad election process.
It sounds like the problem of fruads at the polls is not just an American dilemma.
Our DC streets filled with a 2 million man march calling for Obama to be removed.

At least Britian said it would stand with the American people . (inspite of the current kook du jour in the Oval offices)
