Profiles in Courage
I guess Obama really did bring Teh Change:
Iran's president called Israel a nuclear-armed "fake regime" shielded by the United States, prompting Israel's U.N. ambassador to walk out of a high-level U.N. meeting Monday promoting the rule of law.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad also accused the U.S. and others of misusing freedom of speech and failing to speak out against the defamation of people's beliefs and "divine prophets," an apparent reference to the recently circulated amateur video made in the U.S. which attacks Islam and denigrates the Prophet Muhammad.
The Iranian leader, who has called for Israel's destruction, used his speech to denounce Israel's occupation of Palestinian territory and U.S. vetoes in the U.N. Security Council to back its ally. He urged all nations to "hold occupiers accountable and make efforts to return the occupied territories to their rightful owners."
...The U.S. delegation did not walk out of Monday's meeting, as it has in the past when Iran attacked Israel directly.
We're sure the U.S. delegation didn't clear that decision with the White House ahead of time. I mean, who could predict that Ahmadinejad would say such things?
Maybe CBS News? They certainly seem to have better intel.

Isn't this more Hope and Change? This administration is no longer going to give Ahma[mumble] the degree of importance that a walk-out would grant?

'...the misuse of free speech?' Bwhahahahaha...
How truthy. Can we say that when he is calling the U.S. the great satan (minus the church lady echo), and showing disrespect to our beliefs and our way of life?
Should I run this by Hillary's State Department and France?
