Pres. Obama is addressing the UN general meeting right now.
The President is going to speak the same day as Iran’s Ahmadinejad, Libya’s Gadhafi and Zimbabwe’s Mugabe; you have to wonder whether Syria’s al-Assad and/or North Korea’s Il-sung had scheduling conflicts. Doesn’t anybody at the White House check people’s work before they send it out?
Also at the UN, Germany wants U.N. walkout if Amadinejad denies Holocaust
Germany will walk out of the U.N. General Assembly if Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad denies the Holocaust in a speech he will give Wednesday, and it wants other European Union countries to do the same, the foreign ministry said.
“We will leave the hall if President Ahmadinejad denies the Holocaust or makes anti-Semitic statements … we are making efforts toward a unified European position,” a spokesman said Tuesday.
Just last week Ahmadinejad was denying the Holocaust.
Why is the UN inviting him anyway?
I’ll be talking about this (and about Gaddfi’s tent, they tell me) in today’s CNN Live’s Blogger Bunch at 12:15PM. See you there.
