Mahmoud’s “A” List

Wednesday, September 26, 2007  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

So, which journalists does the fanatic from Iran consider easy marks?  From Time:

The invitation was on creamy stationery with fancy calligraphy: The Permanent Representative of the Islamic Republic of Iran “requests the pleasure” of my company to dine with H.E. Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The dinner is at the Intercontinental Hotel -with names carefully written out at all the place settings around a rectangular table. There are about 50 of us, academics and journalists mostly. There’s Brian Williams across the room, and Christiane Amanpour a few seats down. And at a little after 8pm, on a day when he has already addressed the U.N., the evening after his confrontation at Columbia, a bowing and smiling Mahmoud Admadinejad glides into the room.

Did anyone invited think to turn down the hospitality of the leader of a regime actively involved in the killing of our troops?

Would they have attended dinner with Pieter Botha?
