A delegate has her picture taken with Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (L) during the 63rd United Nations General Assembly at the U.N. headquarters in New York, September 23, 2008.
50 years from now, people are going to be scratching their heads, wondering how it was that someone like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was treated like a celebrity, courted by the US media, and given a platform to sprout his maniacal views. Much like we find ourselves scratching our heads at the way the world responded – or more correctly failed to respond – to Hitler.
That is assuming there is a 50 year from now. Or if there is, that Sharia Law permits people to question such things.
