Michelle and I traveled to New York on Monday to document events as Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad arrived and spoke at Columbia University in New York on Monday. Only Columbia students were allowed to attend the speech and the Q&A that followed it, so many people who wanted to challenge Ahmadinejad were kept outside. We spoke to some of them, along with Columbia students and others who turned out to protest Columbia’s decision to give Ahmadinejad a forum on its campus. Here is the first of our video reports on the events outside the speech.
