Fred Versus Mahmoud

After Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad requested to visit Ground Zero during his time at the United Nations, a large number of Americans expressed their opinions of the idea, most of them saying “No way!” One of those was Fred Thompson.

"I know there would be ramifications in the United Nations" if the U.S. refused to let Mr. Ahmadinejad into the country, Mr. Thompson said during a brief news conference at Dallas Love Field. "I would deny this character a visa. What's he going to do, visit there to get pointers for his own activities? I wouldn't let him in the country."

After New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said he would not allow Mr. Ahmadinejad anywhere near Ground Zero, the Iranian president said he would abide by the decision.
