Iranian officials have banned Facebook in the Islamic Republic after it became an immensely popular tool for mobilizing young voters, many of them supporters of lead challenger Mir-Hossein Mousavi.
While squelching debate in his own country, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad tried to rally his supporters today with a new proposal.
Ahmadinejad said he wanted a face-to-face debate with President Obama at the United Nations if he is re-elected next month as Iran's president.

I would like my President to do this for me and my country.
