Ahmadinjejad May Attempt Ground Zero Celebration Tour, Whether Request Is Granted Or Not

Seems to be his style. Not that he's "unilateral" or anything like our Fascist Dictator in Chief.

Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad requested to visit Ground Zero during an upcoming trip to New York. That request was rejected Wednesday. But a source tells Eyewitness News that the decision may not stop him.

A law enforcement source says the Iranian mission to the United Nations has informed the Secret Service that the Iranian president intends to visit Ground Zero Monday at 10 a.m.

The source says regardless of the NYPD's rejection of the request for a Ground Zero tour, Iran's president and his entourage will be accompanied by a Secret Service protective detail, a detail provided to all heads of state when they visit the United States.


...

Kelly said that Ahmadinejad had not indicated why he wants to visit the site of the terrorist attacks of September 11th.

Mayor Rudy Giuliani released the following statement on Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad:

"Under no circumstances should the NYPD or any other American authority assist President Ahmadinejad in visiting Ground Zero. This is a man who has made threats against America and Israel, is harboring bin Laden's son and other al-Qaeda leaders, is shipping arms to Iraqi insurgents and is pursuing the development of nuclear weapons. Assisting Ahmadinejad in touring Ground Zero - hallowed ground for all Americans - is outrageous."

Deny Him A Visa: Seems unlikely, but Congressman Broun has issued the following press release:


Congressman Broun Calls Upon President Bush to Deny Entry Visa for Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

Describes Ahmadinejad’s request to visit Ground Zero as a

“slap in the face to all Americans”

Washington D.C.- Congressman Paul Broun took the House Floor last night to call upon President Bush and the State Department to deny Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad an entry visa to the United States. Ahmadinejad is the President of Iran, a rogue nation the State Department has indicated is the “world’s most active state sponsor of terrorism.” Ahmadinejad is a holocaust denier who has repeatedly called for the destruction of the United States and Israel. Iran was recently cited by General Petraeus as actively aiding attacks against American troops in Iraq. Ahmadinejad is currently scheduled to arrive in New York on September 24th.

“President Ahmadinejad has asked for permission to visit Ground Zero, the site of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, during his upcoming trip to the United Nations. This is an outrage,” said Broun. “To allow the leader of a terrorist state like Ahmadinejad to abuse his status as a ‘diplomat’ to visit Ground Zero would represent a slap in the face not only to those who were lost in the attacks on September 11, 2001, and to their families, but to all Americans. Ahmadinejad is a despotic, holocaust denying madman who should not be allowed into our country. I call upon the President and the State Department to do the right thing: refuse Ahmadinejad an entry visa.”
