Big surprise, Iran might not have been completely, totally, 100% up front about its nuclear program. So they forget to mention until now that they had that second plant. But here’s the big takeaway from the WaPo story:
“If I were [President] Obama’s adviser, I would definitely advise him to refrain making this statement because it is definitely a mistake,” Ahmedinejad told Time magazine Friday in an interview in New York that took place even as Obama was publicly revealing the plant’s existence. “It would definitively be a mistake.”
Ahmadinejad dismissed the accusations from Obama and the other leaders.
“This does not mean we must inform Mr. Obama’s administration of every facility that we have,” he told Time. It “simply adds to the list of issues [over] which the United States owes the Iranian nation an apology.” [Emphasis added.]
This is what happens when you start apologizing to nutjobs like Ahmedinejad. Once you do, they get it in their heads that you need to apologize for everything, including stuff they did.
Where does it all end? That’s what I’m afraid we’re going to find out.
