Susan Rice, Obama’s UN Ambassador, skipped out on Netanyahu’s speech due to that whole awkward, “Iran Nukes” thing, which her boss doesn’t care to hear about either, but the UN delegation earlier had stayed for Ahmadinejad’s rantings.
In keeping with Obama’s tradition of alienating allies and appeasing enemies…
The AP is reporting that the U.S. delegation stayed seated while Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad waxed philosophical about the historical accuracy of the Holocaust and the illegitimacy of the “Zionist regime” yesterday, even as Israel’s ambassador to the UN walked out in protest. I don’t see Susan Rice on the Fox News video, but at least three U.S. officials remained in their chairs (one of whom seemed to be diligently taking notes).
What were Obama’s people so excited about? Good stuff like this.
Ahmadinejad stated that despite all efforts to achieve happiness – capitalism and consumerism by the US, the UK, France, Germany and Japan was responsible for both droughts and floods. He stated that the present global, democratic leadership represented an oppressive international world order, words that Hitler once used. That this “wrong management of the world was working for the devil” – colonialism founded on materialism and capitalism.
Obama’s people probably just thought they were listening to Jeremiah Wright or Louis Farrakhan. If only Mahmoud had shouted, “Allah Damn America”, it would have been a real flashback.
