In a move that has stunned New York, the Bloomberg administration is in discussions to escort the Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, to ground zero during his visit to New York next week, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said today.

It definitely differs from this report:

www.foxnews.com...

"NEW YORK — Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's request to visit Ground Zero during the United Nationals General Assembly next week was rejected Wednesday by federal and New York officials."

A lot of folks on here Dog Foxnews so we'll see who pans out to be right.

Why? What's the problem with it? You do know that Iran was one of the first countries to condemn the attacks, yes? They offered you unprecedented support and co-operation against radical, militant Islam. This was ignored. Months later, they are named as a member of the "Axis of Evil". Any chance after that of co-operation was lost.

Look where we are today.

How quickly some forget.

What is the problem with this guy going to ground zero? I don't see it. I'm reading the propaganda though:


"It is an insult to the memories of those who died on 9/11 at the hands of terrorists, and those who have fought terrorism for years, to allow the president of the world's top state sponsor of terrorism to step foot at ground zero," a spokeswoman for Senator Thompson, Karen Hanretty, said. "Iran is responsible for supplying weapons and supporting extremist who are killing U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan to this very day."

A Republican candidate, Mitt Romney, called the plan "shockingly audacious."

"It's inconceivable that any consideration would be given to the idea of entertaining the leader of a state sponsor of terror at ground zero," Mr. Romney said in a statement. "This would deeply offend the sensibilities of Americans from all corners of our nation. Instead of entertaining Ahmadinejad, we should be indicting him."


Um, wasn't it Saudis that did 9/11? Not Iranis? Oh and btw, why is Saudi Arabia still an ally?

Whoops, I must have missed this:


Iran has been called the world's "most active state sponsor of terrorism" by the U.S. State Department.

Maybe because Iran sponsors the terrorist organization Hezbollah (and others) which uses suicide bombers and random rocket attacks to futher their "agenda". I dont think it would prove of any use to let the president of a state who sponsors terror to visit the spot where we suffered our most horrendous terrorist act.

But of course Iran was one of the first countries to denounce 9/11 right after it occurred. What were they going to do...laugh and gloat?

Hezbollah doesn't use suicide attacks.

And before you carp on about the Marine barracks bombing in the 80's in Beirut, that wasn't Hezbollah.

Hezbollah is only listed as a Terrorist organisation in about 5 countries. Have a guess who they are....

Also, the use of "State sponsor of Terrorism" is for propaganda purposes only. The USA has and still continues to support terrorists/insurgents/freedom fighters (call them what you will). As has most nations on this Earth at one time or another.

Why bother stumason you know that since the propaganda against Iran by the present administration power grab agenda of the middle east people can not hear, see or want to know details concerning anything but the pushing of an attack to evil Iran.

I think is selected forgetfulness.

I do not think it will be a good idea for him to go into NY with so much anti Iran resentment around.

Cheney will have another hart attack and a quintuple by pass if Ahmadinejad was allow in NY.


With all the efforts and money, he has put through his corporate friends to push Iran war next.

Ah but:

Damn, the State Department. They couldn't possibly be influenced into saying non-truths.

I seems to me that someone has bought the gov't line, hook, line and sinker. Damn that propaganda machine REALLY works.

Hezbo dooesnt have to have attacked the US they have attacked our ally. Where have you been? Under a rock? I dont think we are going to let the main power broker behind Hezbo and Hamas and countless others visit ground zero. He isnt allowed to do so and with good reason. He shouldnt have even been granted permission to enter the US period.

I just dont get why so many people on here are in love with Iran? Do you even know anything about their government and HOW they treat their citizens? Talk about oppression. Or do you guys just stick up for them because they are against the US?

He wants to lay a reef to commemorate his heroes, not the victims.

Screw him and anyone else that supports his efforts

Does that surprises you? The profiters are making billions with the middle east invasion, I imagine that they have no problem wasting our tax payer money to push that propaganda machine and have it working in full gear day and night.

Under a rock? No. Not under the influence either. Let's look at US allies. Hmm. in the past 40 years Iraq, Afghanistan. That's just naming a couple that were US allies. Maybe they were bad and attacked the US.


Nuff said.

Not at all Marg. A surprise would be if some of these individuals actually thought for themselves instead of accepting what was sold to them.

Well what do you expect when it comes to the educational system in this nation.

Many young people skip history classes. They believe that the nations in the middle east has been our enemies since US got established as a nation.

They forgot about the regime changes backed up by our own governments through the years affecting the people that now hates us with passion.

Terrorist has been born from our actions not because they one day wake up and said, "Hum today I will hate America"

People do not want to deny Ignorance

Those regimes havent always been sponsors of terror either. Bottom line is that at one time they were okay but as soon as they started F'ing with us then they werent. Thats enough in my book. People change and so do regimes.

Last i checked, Hamas and Hezbo and Islamic Jihad etc werent government entities no? What about that? Hmmmm

Never said it would upset me, But given the course of current events Iran is portrayed as the ultimate evil, I don't agree with this in the slightest, Iran is taking position which any country threatened would take, It links to "terror" are no different worse then that of the US....
