Mahmoud Ahmadinejad does not actually deny anything in his interview with Diane Sawyer. Why? Because he believes that Iran benefits if America and the world is uncertain about its actions and intentions. So does the United States, at least for the time being, which is why only very foolish or self-serving politicians demand that the United States categorically declare that it will not use military force against Iran.
I watched perhaps 30 seconds of this laughably ludicrous video before noting "Mr. Spring in Iran" had helped ABC "News" and Diane Sawyer in shattering the world's record for credulity. I liked her wearing a head-scarf, a nice touch of shamelessly servile political correctness. Had Ms. Sawyer been interviewing a vile pornographer, would she have shown up nude?
