McCain speaks out against Columbia’s Invitations to the Iranian President

Posted by Reuben Ingber on September 23, 2007

Sen. John McCain tonight spoke at the Mackanic Republican Leadership Conference, and according to Rob Bluey, received a standing ovation for taking a hard line when it came to the President of Iran scheduled visit and speech at Columbia University. McCain said,

“And I certainly think a man who is directing the maiming and killing of Americans troops should not be given an invitation to speak at an American university.  Rather than rolling out the red carpet for the leader of a terrorist-sponsoring regime, Columbia should be welcoming the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps back on campus to honor the men and women who put their lives on the line every day defending our freedom.”  

Sen. McCain is completely correct here. President Ahmadinajad, should be granted his right to speak at the U.N. and then should be brought back by the U.S. Secret Service (Unfortunately we have to provide) to his plane. Otherwise the U.N. should indite him for inciting genocide, he has said repeatedly that he wants to “wipe Israel off the map”.

    Genocide? Thats a bit farfetched. I’m no fan of Pres. Ahmedinejad, but the best way to understand others, or even challenge them is to hear them out. Simply turning a blind eye does nothing, rather show sheer ignorance. We forget its the administration that keeps insisting Iran being involved in Iraq, and their credibility frankly isn’t on good standings. Even if Iran is involved, they have their agenda, as we have ours.

    The 60 minutes interview was pretty good. Mike Wallace, the 60 minutes interviewer, got schooled. Ahmed, obviously a politician, is not going to give direct answers, but if you have half a brain, I think you can make out what he means. I expect more from CBS than putting an amateur to the hot seat.

    You give Ahmadinejad waaaayyyy too much credit. This man has more political pull in the United States than he does in his own country. People like you fail to realize that he has no control over foreign policy, and he only uses statements like the “destruction of Israel” to gain support in the Arab world and at home. The best policy to deal with Ahmadinejad is appeasement, make him irrelevant by taking away everything that makes him a someone – outcry from the West.
