Ahmadinejad wants to visit Ground Zero

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad wants to visit Ground Zero while he is in New York City next week to address the United Nations – and Mayor Bloomberg may let him! Sarah Garland reports for the New York Sun:

In a move that has stunned New York, the Bloomberg administration is in discussions to escort the Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, to ground zero during his visit to New York next week, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said today.

The Iranian mission to the U.N. made the request to the New York City Police Department and the Secret Service, which will jointly oversee security during the leader’s two-day visit. Mr. Ahmadinejad is scheduled to arrive September 24 to speak to the U.N. General Assembly as the Security Council decides whether to increase sanctions against his country for its uranium enrichment program.
