Ahmadinejad’s speech to UN: Hey, maybe 9/11 was an inside job

posted at 5:25 pm on September 23, 2010 by Allahpundit

Via Mediaite, you’ll see in the clip how the U.S. delegation reacted to the “news.” A hint: It’s the same way they’ve reacted to all of his UN speeches. I didn’t watch today’s tirade but I’ve seen enough of him over the last few years to guess at the particulars. Safe bets: (1) Our nuclear program is entirely peaceful and we’ve complied with every demand made of us (they haven’t); (2) Iran stands for peace and brotherhood and puppies when it isn’t busy caving in the skulls of Green Revolution protesters gathered on the streets; (3) the world is on the brink of a new golden age of international harmony but America and Israel, a.k.a. the “real terrorists,” are standing in the way; (4) the UN needs to expand the permanent membership of the Security Council so that Iran isn’t forever “bullied” or whatever; and (5) capitalism is bad, which he tosses in there as a naked pander to the degenerate autocrats in the third world like Chavez and Mugabe who support him against the U.S. If anyone sees a transcript later, read through and let me know how I scored.

Today’s journey into Trutherism is new, though, I think. To be sure, he’s been pushing conspiracy theories about 9/11 (and not just 9/11) in interviews for years as a modern-day complement to his Holocaust denial, but as far as I know this is the first time he’s broached the subject from the podium at the UN. I wonder why. Could be that he’s worried about Sunni support for an Israeli attack on Iran’s enrichment facilities and is using this to stir up a little support on the Arab street. Or, given all the lip service he’s been paying lately to Iran’s supposed willingness to negotiate about its nuke program, maybe this is his way of ensuring that Obama doesn’t take him up on his phony offer. Once this clip gets played a few times on the news tonight, it’ll be too politically toxic for The One.

Here’s the obligatory statement from a U.S. diplomat ripping him for what he said. Exit question: Ahmadinejad to be interviewed tomorrow by … Shep Smith? What could go wrong?

Yet the Jerusalem Post and Ha’aretz report that the US is trying to establish unofficial diplomatic relations with Iran.

The way tools like him are embraced by people in here just makes me want to give up on trying to fight him and let them reap the consequences of their actions.

It’s good to know that true American supporters of ‘leaders’ like Herr Doktor stand with the likes of Dinnerjacket.

How do you feel now?

Vindicated?

Did 52% of Obama voters, vote for this doofus? Geeeeeze he’s a joke, and yet there are countries that actually take this oaf seriously. UGH!!!

Shep?! What a hard-hitting interview that will be. Sheesh.

sounds like a leftist.

rob verdi on September 23, 2010 at 5:37 PM

Ahmadinejad’s words carry just as much weight as Obama’s “consequences” speech.

The UN is irrelevant and anything that comes out of it is as well.

ButterflyDragon on September 23, 2010 at 5:37 PM

Hey, I’ve got an idea. Let’s get the US out of the UN.

Then, let’s get the UN out of the US.

Then we take back Turtle Bay, burn the buildings to the ground, and rent that very expensive real estate to people who aren’t spies, traitors, and morons.

Or is that too extreme?

I think a good start would be moving the HQ out of here to say maybe…Paris…Johannesburg..anywhere?? And cutting our contribution down to about 5% of their budget as opposed to the 25% we’re paying now.

Then, in a couple of years say ‘We don’t want to play with you anymore’.

Shep is going to grille him about Gays in Iran.

“So, you claim there are no Homosexuals in Iran, well sir I have been to Iran, and I can tell you there are.”

portlandon on September 23, 2010 at 5:45 PM

From DinnerJackets point of view his comment about 9/11 makes sense.

He would have no problem doing such a thing to his own people, therefore everyone else is capable of the same thing.

GarandFan on September 23, 2010 at 5:45 PM

Shephard Smith and Ahmadinejad…wierd. Why the goofball and not one of the real journalists at Fox News? Hey Shep, ask him when the Tel Aviv Testing Ground is going to be inaugurated? Ask him which chem or bio-weapon he had in mind for NYC in his apocalypse-soon comment yesterday.

All will be forgiven if Obama gets his fancy-shmancy Iran summit.

I’ve never watched a Larry King interview in my life–except his interview of Ahmadinejad this morning. Laugh at me, but I was appalled to learn Larry King was such a moron.

Now, Shep? I figured out he was brain-dead first time I saw him on Fox.

Why does Fox let an idiot like Shep interview Iran’s head nut-job?

Unfortunately it is not – to you and I and many millions of others it is a complete waste of real estate, air, and skin. However, there are a good number of monied and influential people who would like and love nothing better than to have their United Nations actually become the ‘One World Government’ – this is, I believe, their goal – check out Maurice Strong and his connections with al-Gore and others way too numerous to name.

Keep an eye on UN tactics – internet, environment, space, water, etc.. the list goes on and on and on.

It is very, very scary. . . .

karra on September 23, 2010 at 6:29 PM

This would have been a good chance for some of those moderate Muslims to show some moderation and walk out in protest.

Bueller?

Granted.

But they do deserve to have their faces rubbed in the fact they view things about 9/11 the same way Dinnerjacket does.

Actually, if you read the thread, there really aren’t any, though there are a few commenters who I suspect are. They seem to be keeping their opinions to themselves for once.

Just remember, Ahmadeenutjob isn’t running anything. He’s just a spokesman for the muslim mullahs really running Iran.

portlandon on September 23, 2010 at 5:30 PM

And said so again from that very podium a mere hour or so before this outrage.

We all could have guessed what would be said but Obama either stubbornly insists continuing to reach out will eventually succeed or …what…is just flat-out stupid?

So his denunciation just issued rings hollow, to say the least.

The guy is just a bit more detailed about how Islam goes about things; stuff anyone who knows anything about Islam pretty much already knows.

Unless I missed something…

To Charlie Sheen, James Brolin, and your Hollywood, Democrat and other pals who believe 9/11 was an inside job:

You are traitors.

chipandcharge on September 23, 2010 at 8:13 PM

I’d like to see someone take out the stinky monkey too, but let it happen in Iran and be done by a son of Iran. As OxyCon stated, he is really the #2 man. The whole ruling council needs to be knocked off.

slickwillie2001 on September 23, 2010 at 8:17 PM

Let’s see now, “America is The Great Satan!”, “Israel will be driven into the sea!”, “We have the right to nuclear power!”, “We will flood the world with Islam!”, etc.etc.etc.

We miss anything this time that this certified wack-job spewed out the last time he stunk up the already stinking U.N. with his B.S.?!!!

pilamaye on September 23, 2010 at 9:32 PM

I caught a bit of an interview of Michael Savage with a woman from the Middle East who had loads of details about Iran’s gearing up to destroy the Great Satan (the US) and the Little Satan (Israel). The arrival of the mahdi messiah and the imposition of Shiite domination are dominating Iran’s propaganda blitz.

The woman was distraught at how the West is ignoring the escalating plans of Iran’s governing mullahs, and she was blasing away at our naivete in underestimating Ahmadaboutjihad and the foolishness of ObaMao’s foreign policy.

Didn’t the US delegation walk out of this jerk’s diatribe? We should withhold any money to the UN if this group does not stand up to Iran’s saber rattling.

He’s lost his temper a number of times too. I could see him losing it with A-Jad.

Like I said, anyone who knows anything about Islam knows this is how the jihadi works.

Agreed. Let the punishment fit the crime. Lock him up for 444 days in Gitmo–the same length of time he and his thugs held our diplomats hostage in Tehran in 1979-80.

Steve Z on September 24, 2010 at 9:49 AM

Could be that he’s worried about Sunni support for an Israeli attack on Iran’s enrichment facilities and is using this to stir up a little support on the Arab street.

This guy is not an Arab. He’s Persian. The commonality here is Islam. Make no mistake, this is all about Islamism, albeit Shiite, and the little man means business despite whether people take him seriously or not.

Big John on September 24, 2010 at 11:02 AM
