A couple of months ago, We had the unfortunate displeasure of watching the Iranian president' Mahmoud Ahmadinegad being interviewed by Mike Wallace on "60 Minutes." As if that was not enough we had to tolerate watching him again ranting and raving in the United Nations.

I was surprised how this little psychopath was able to manipulate the American media and detour every one away from his atrocities and that of his supervisors. For a moment, I wished I was sitting there asking Mahmoud Ahmadinegad the questions. Questions such as:

What gives him the right to proclaim that he is the president of Iran, when he was put into office through a rigged circus act called the Iranian elections?

Why has he taken the little freedom that Iranians had, and why has he made life so harsh for Iranian women? Why is it that at the dawn of the 21st century, the women of one of the oldest nations in the world are forced to wear medieval clothes in Tehran's summer heat?

What gives Ahmadinegad the right to keep thousands of political prisoners in the notorious Evin prison, and why does Amnesty International declare Iran yearly to be one of the worst countries in the world regarding human rights?

Why does one of the richest countries in the world have so many poor, and why are the poor clergymen of yesterday the billionaires of today?

I want to know, when he functioned as a revolutionary guard, how many people did he kill and how many Iranian boys he sent into the minefields.

I would ask him what happened to the pre-revolution promises of democracy, and why is he part of a government whose very existence is in contrast to Iranian history and an insult to humanity.

Unfortunately, most of the reporter's questions were centered on the topics for which he has prepared himself. he was not asked about his crimes against people of Iran, and crimes against humanity. I just do not know how long millions of people of Iran have to endure one of the most oppressive regimes in the world.
