Ahmadinejad Says U.S. Gov't Responsible for 9/11

Not long after President Obama addressed the UN General Assembly, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad took the podium and claimed the U.S. government was responsible for the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

Ahmadinejad said:

Some segments within the U.S. government orchestrated the attack to reverse the declining American economy, and its grips on the Middle East, in order to save the Zionist regime.
The majority of the American people as well as most nations and politicians around the world agree with this view

The U.S. delegation as well as several others walked out of the room.

What made President Obama think he could deal with this man?

I wonder what Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei thinks about Ahmadinejad's remarks considering he condemned the September 11th attacks. Unless, of course, he's now come around to Ahmadinejad's point of view.

UPDATE: Fox News Channel correspondent Eric Shawn, who has written extensively about the UN, reports there was applause for Ahmadinejad at the end of his address.

It saddens me but it does not surprise me. I'm sure much came from the member states who are a part of the Organization of the Islamic Conference. When you consider how the UN General Assembly routinely condemns Israel is it such a stretch of the imagination many of those members would applaud a claim that the United States orchestrated the September 11th attacks to protect Israel?

Whats even more scary are the liberal bloggers at Huffington Post who agree with the madman.
It's not even a handful of bloggers it's almost the majority.
