An Excellent Interview With Ahmadinejad..on Sixty Minutes

When I first heard that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was going to be interviewed on CBS' Sixty Minute, I assumed that it would be a farcical reprise of the last one, done by senile talking head Mike Wallace.

I owe Scott Pelly a major apology, and don't mind saying so. He did a fine job, given the limitations of the interview format, and did not shy away from asking the tough can be seen from Ahmadinejad's attempt to dance around direct answers and retreat into talking points.

The transcript, in parts one and two is quite revealing of how closely Ahmadinejad follows events in this country and how throughly radical Islam has adopted the rhetoric of the Left.

A bit long. but a worthwhile read, and recommended.
