Iran leader condemned by university host - Focus on Iran -

NEW YORK - As hundreds protested outside, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad took the stage at Columbia University on Monday after a blistering introduction from the school's president, who said the hard-line leader was a dictator with preposterous beliefs.
Ahmadinejad smiled as Columbia President Lee Bollinger took him to task over Iran's human-rights record and foreign policy, as well as Ahmadinejad's statements denying the Holocaust and calling for the disappearance of Israel.

"Mr. President, you exhibit all the signs of a petty and cruel dictator," Bollinger said, to loud applause.

"There were insults and claims that were incorrect, regretfully," Ahmadinejad said, accusing Bollinger of offering "unfriendly treatment" under the influence of the U.S. press and politicians.

I wonder the same thing knowing Columbia has been under fire for having Imanutjob speaking there, It's kind of funny Bollinger suddenly grows some balls.

I know I probably shouldn't agree with Imanutjob,
Asked whether he beleved the U.S. is preparing for war, he responded: “That is not how I see it ... I believe that some of the talk in this regard arises first of all from anger. Secondly, it serves the electoral purposes domestically in this country. Third, it serves as a cover for policy failures over Iraq.”

It is definitely something the neo-cons like McCain and Giuliani are using to scare the sheep into voting for them.

    They might scare the sheep, but I hope they don't vote for them.

    This was a crazy scene and I really don't understand the invite, when they got Ahmadinejad and the President said what he did.
