The voice of a man

Ahmadinejad responds by asking what do Americans like about Bush. Pelley’s answer? Bush is a religious man.

“As an American citizen tell me what trait do you admire?” the president asked Pelley.

“Well Mr. Bush is without question a very religious man for example, as you are,” Pelley replied.

“What religion, please tell me, tells you as a follower of that religion to occupy another country and kill its people, please tell me, does Christianity tell its followers to do that?” Ahmadinejad asked.

When Pelley reads a statement from Bush to Ahmadinejad – he’s now too cowardly to meet with world leaders on his own and relies on reporters to pass along messages? – my irony meter redlined.
