Walkout: US Delegation Ditches Ahmadinejad's UN Rant

Hey, remember yesterday, when President Obama claimed we don't allow human rights violators on our shores? Apparently we do, but only if they're addressing the United Nations.

Doesn't mean we have to listen, though.

Per Reuters and this story from the Wall Street Journal, the United States' delegation to the UN reportedly had enough of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's crazed theories on September 11th, and walked out of the Iranian president's address to the UN General Assembly.

U.S. officials said the decision to walk out was made after Mr. Ahmadinejad crossed "red lines" established concerning offensive remarks.

Mr. Ahmadinejad described what he said were three theories about the 2001 attacks. The first, that terrorists penetrated U.S. intelligence and defenses. The second: "That 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 also to save the Zionist regime. The majority of the American people as well as other nations and politicians agree with this view."

Apparently, the delegation didn't stay to hear the third--that the US funded the terrorists to carry out the attacks--or these other complaints he levied, reported by USA Today:

Ahmadinejad attacked the United States for history of slavery, causing two world wars, using a nuclear bomb against "defenseless people," and imposing and supporting military dictatorships and totalitarian regimes on Asian, African and Latin American nations.

Does beg the question, though--why were we in there listening to him at all?
