Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad might be wearing out his 9/11-was-a-government-conspiracy shtick a bit, but not for a lack of some serious, inappropriate rhetorical questioning. After making his annual "don't-take-me-seriously" speech at the United Nations General Assembly on Thursday, he held a press conference yesterday calling on the U.N. to form a committee to get to the bottom of 9/11 once and for all: "Don't you feel that the time has come to have a fact finding committee?"

Ahmadinejad continued with his line of hard rhetorical questioning: "An event occurred, and under the pretext of that event two countries were invaded and up to now hundreds of thousands of people have been killed as a result. Don't you feel that that excuse has to be revised? Why do you assume that all nations must accept what the US government tells them?" Although, perhaps the real question he was asking was, "Will you please pay attention to me, please, just a little longer, please?" If he really does care about learning all he can about 9/11, the least he could do is get the facts straight from the Mayor of 9/11 Town, Rudy Giuliani, before taking up our ear space with his bullshit.

During a less useless meeting, Ahmadinejad had a private conversation with Sarah Shourd, the American hiker who was imprisoned in Tehran for 14 months. "While I was in prison, I pleaded for the chance to speak with President Ahmadinejad in order to clear up any misunderstanding that led to our detention" she said. It's a good thing he was finally able to find a break in his schedule from offending President Obama and 9/11 families to do so!
