General Assembly Applauds Ahmadinejad Speech


Delegates at the United Nations General Assembly applauded the speech given by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Wednesday.

The U.S. delegation announced Wednesday morning it would not attend the speech. In a statement to CNN, the delegation said, “Over the past couple of days, we’ve seen Mr. Ahmadinejad once again use his trip to the U.N. not to address the legitimate aspirations of the Iranian people but to instead spout paranoid theories and repulsive slurs against Israel.”
