Ground Zero

Ahmadinejad is a terrorist and a root cause of terrorism

EFPs made in Iran are killing our troops

During his ’60 Minutes’ interview, after Mahmoud Ahmadinejad expressed surprise that people do not want him to go to Ground Zero, Scott Pelley said:

“Well sir, you are the head of government on an Islamist state that the United States government says is a major exporter of terrorism around the world.”

Ahmadinejad responded:

“We obviously are very much against any terrorist action and any killing. Also we are very much against any plots to sow the seeds of discord among nations. Usually, you go to these sites to pay your respects and to also air your views about the root causes of such incidents.”

Mass murder is what the 9/11 hijackers conducted on 9/11, not an “incident.” Mahmoud Ahmadinejad wanted to pay his respects at Ground Zero to the 19 hijackers who murdered 3,000 innocent people on 9/11. According to the 9/11 Commission, “8 to 10 of the muscle hijackers” passed through Iran from October 2000 through February 2001 without their passports being stamped so as to avoid alerting security officials of other nations latter. Other sources say they were escorted by Iranian intelligence.

His regime is a root cause of terrorism. Iran supplies weapons and training to murder America’s son and daughters in Iraq. There they continue a 28 year tradition of directing or assisting terrorists against the “Great Satan.”

Yet Ahmadinejad avoided answering Scott Pelley’s questions about EFPs:

Ahmadinejad arrived in New York City yesterday and is scheduled to speak at DC’s National Press Club via VideoLink and at Columbia University today. He will address the United Nations on Tuesday.

Dozens of groups will protest Ahmadinejad. Here are a few suggestions for their signs:

Stop killing U.S. troops

Blood of American troops on Ahmadinejad’s hands

Iranian IEDs killing our troops

Stand with the Iranian People: Dump the Ayatollahs

Sunday protests against Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

Would we let President Osama bin Laden go to Ground Zero?

Asking if we would let Osama bin Laden go to Ground Zero, where his thugs violated the Koran by both killing themselves and murdering the innocent, is not a stupid question. Officials at all levels have explained the past couple of days why Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is allowed to wander around freely, albeit with a U.S. Secret Service detail protecting him; Amadjihaden (anagram) is a head of state.

What if Osama bin Laden wins the war he just declared on Pakistan and takes over as president of that nation? If we follow our own officials’ arguments, he would become a head of state — the terrorist dictator over another terrorist nation — with full diplomatic immunity, who could fly into New York City unmolested, address the United Nations, and wander down for a pic and grin session at Ground Zero because it is within 25 miles of Columbus Circle. Our Secret Service would have to guard him while he was here.

Our friends at Cox&Forkum have one word for Mahmoud Ahmadinejad:

There is photographic evidence that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad participated in the 1979 taking of our embassy in Tehran and holding of our citizens for 444 days. His government has continually attacked the United States and murdered our people. Our State Department says the foremost state sponsor of terrorism is Iran. A few months back, the Pentagon stated Iran either supplied or taught others how to make EFPs that had killed at least 170 of our troops in Iraq. The Multination Forces Command Iraq has repeatedly stated that Iran’s agents are entering Iraq and training insurgents on how to blow up our troops and the innocent en masse. Just yesterday, there was this headline: Iranian Officer Arrested for Allegedly Smuggling Roadside Bombs Into Iraq.

It appears that Ahmadinejad has decided not to go to Ground Zero but he will address the United Nations Monday. Michelle Malkin informs us that there is a protest against him speaking there that day:

Join the National Rally to End the Threat Now
Monday, September 24
12:00 noon, rain or shine
Dag Hammarskjold Plaza
2nd Avenue at 47th Street
(across from the United Nations) New York City

Debra Burlingame offers these suggestions for what signs to carry there:

Ahmadinejad GO HOME.

Terrorist thugs not welcome where heroes died.

Ahmadinejad stones women.

Support American troops: Ahmadinejad out of U.S.

The only good reason to let Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s plane land inside our nation would be to then transfer him to another direct flight, fly him down to Guantanamo Bay, toss him in a cell, lock the door, and fuhgeddaboud him.
