Ahmadinejad: Say Sorry

Former President Bush’s enemies have so far seemed eager to make nice with President Obama (see Russia’s scrapping of missile plans today), but it looks like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is going to spoil the fun. The Iranian President addressed crowds in Khermenshah today, saying, "Those who speak of change must apologize to the Iranian people and try to repair their past crimes," alluding to Obama's recent interview on Al Arabiya, in which the president said “[if] countries like Iran are willing to unclench their fist, they will find an extended hand from us." Ahmadinejad also said the U.S. should "stop interfering in other people's affairs," referring to U.S. military presence around the world.
