Iran's president says he won't insist on ground zero visit

I don't think anyone should tour ground zero that might find it funny.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Thursday that he won't push to visit the site of the destroyed World Trade Center during his visit to the United Nations next week.

Let me put it this way Mahmoud, the suits in Washington DC, they play politics, New Yorkers, they don't. You make one wrong facial expression at ground zero and you'll have New Yorkers all over you like white on rice.

The controversial leader asked to "pay his respects" and lay a wreath at the site of the 2001 al Qaeda attacks, but New York city officials on Wednesday denied that request, citing safety concerns at what is now a construction site.

Regardless of an Americans stance on the War on Terror or the Iraq war, ground zero is still a sacred sight. More than 3,000 INNOCENT Americans lost their lives on that spot. No one is welcome there that can't respect that. Fuck your wreath, show your respects by handing over those al-qaeda leaders that are holed up in your country. Lay them down at ground zero.

Ahmadinejad said he would try to visit the site "if we have the time and the conditions are conducive." But if local officials cannot make the proper arrangements, "I won't insist," he said in an interview to be aired Sunday on CBS' "60 Minutes."
