LARRY KING INTERVIEW
Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad sits down with Larry King Live for a full interview. Questions from the Iran election to the newly exposed nuclear facility that has been kept secret, was mentioned in the interview. The infamous youtube video of an Iran protest, showing a woman dying in the streets was of great concern to Larry King. The woman, Neda, who was shot by a rifle in close range, was a victim of the violence of these protest after the wary Iran election. Ahmadinejad stated she was not in the protest, was leaving dance class, and drew speculation of the person who shot the video from cell phone camera. He states that someone was following Neda and captured her death, but was reluctant to show the shooter to bring him to justice. He also compared the incident to a similar one that happen to Hugo Chavez which was very similar, stating the US was behind that incident. Ahmadinejad was also asked if he still felt that the holocaust was a fictional event. He in return avoided the questions many times and acknowledged the event, but felt it had no place in history or the eyes of politicians across the world. Overall, the interview was hasty, where Ahmadinejad avoided answers and turned the question around various times. My favorite was when he stated the US had more people in prison dying then his country. To conclude, he acts as if he is disappointed with Obama, but still has room to solve international issues with peace talks. In recent times, Russia has considered sanctions of Iran after the recently revealed uranium enrichment plant. Obama is trying to solve this problem without causing Mid-East tensions and we’ll see the engagement of talks in the next week or so.
