FNC’s Amy Kellogg pens an article about yesterday’s Ahmadinejad press conference…
When Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad launched into a religious sermon about good and evil, tyranny and humanity, on Day 13 of captivity for the 15 British sailors, I really wondered where this would end.
Were we in for more of the same, a lashing out at the West and songs of praise for Iran, all wound up in religious discourse? And what about the sailors? We were all craving some news as turbaned intelligence chiefs and gray-suited Foreign Ministry officials and frantic journalists piled into the auditorium of the Presidential Palace under a big poster with the slogans of Muslim Unity Week.
Instead of news, we all thought were in for a lengthy critique of Western policy in the Middle East, Ahmadinejad-style. The press conference would take some unexpected twists, but it would take the better part of an hour to get to the headline.
